Yes actually David Beckham has popularized soccer in the US... or it is just a coincindince that he started playing soccer for MLS when people in the US started to get exposure to soccer because since the 1990's soccer in the US has been growing in popularity rapidly. But we still are no where match in popularity to most country's around the world since soccer is the most popular sport in the world. And most people think that we don't have the popularity in soccer from the lack of exposure we just started playing a little while ago while in other country's soccer has been going on for a while now. Back to David eckham though, some people think that the 28 year old midfield player has made US popularity in soccer more popular but most people think it's from his extrodinary appearance and by that people like him from his "hottness", but I just like him from his extrodinary skill and plays on the field....
