Bend It Like Beckham

The Yorkshire Pudding may be about to hit the fan. Soccer superstar, sex symbol, future Miami-based soccer team owner, and Miami's latest golden boy all wrapped up in one, David Beckham is about to do something Miamians seemingly hate above all else: ask for public money for his stadium. Although he doesn't want any county money, he's hired a lobbyist to hike up to Tallahassee to request State funding. Will he get the money, or will this be the downfall of Miami Beckham United? In other news, wife Victoria wants to open a shop here, and Kim Kardashian is pissed. [Miami Herald; Racked Miami; previously]
