liam louis niall visit los angeles galaxy

With David Beckham LONG gone and retired, the Los Angeles Galaxy has been on the hunt for a British (and/or Irish!) superstar to fill his shoes!

And it looks like they found three strapping young lads who are up for the task!

Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan paid a visit to Becks' old stomping grounds at the Home Depot Center StubHub Center and showed their skillz to the LA Galaxy!

We always knew that Louis was the soccer stud in One Direction, but surprisingly it was the golf wiz Niall who showed some seriously fancy footwork on the field!

Ch-ch-check out his moves …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Robbie Rogers Makes History As The First Openly Gay Active Male Athlete In The US!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspirationSoccer

robbie rogers first active openly gay us athlete

When Jason Collins came out as the first gay athlete in US men's team sports, we knew it wouldn’t be long until others followed his courageous lead.

We were right!

During the LA Galaxy soccer game on Sunday, Robbie Rogers returned to the field, making him the first active male athlete in US professional team sports to be openly gay!!!

Rogers walked away from the game he loves in February and this was his first return as an openly gay man.

How brave!

Collins is still a free agent and looking for a team, which is why Rogers has made history as the first active player.

Like the true professional he is, after the match, Rogers said:

"I guess this is a historic thing, but for me it was just a soccer game.”

As usual, teammate Landon Donovan was extremely supportive, saying:

"Because of the nature of the way sports has been for so many years — the macho culture that's been embraced by everybody — it's of interest to everybody. Now, hopefully, the hype about it is over and he can get back to being a soccer player, which is what he wants to do."

We’re thrilled that the tides are turning in US sports and that people are feeling confident enough to be who they really are!!!

It's no wonder we all felt comfortable electing President Obama twice — the dude keep producing hidden talents!

We were impressed at his ability to quit smoking when he first took office… now we're having our minds blown by his soccer skillz! Seriously, check out that pic (above)! Look at the control! The finesse!

LOLz!

He was meeting with the MLS Cup Champions aka the Los Angeles Galaxy, and also the Los Angeles Kings!

It's been a big year for El Lay sports!! Meeting the Prez is just a cherry on top!

Actually, we're not joking, we're pretty impressed by that pic! Ha!

It feels like he JUST got here, though!

David Beckham Plays 'Hard!'

Filed under: David BeckhamSoccer

We all know David Beckham is a great soccer player.

One of the best ever many would say.

But we mean he was literally playing "hard" at his recent soccer match.

LOLz! Just look at that pic (above)!

It looks like his cup might be out of place, or he's just super hung and really happy to be out on the soccer field.

It was an MLS playoff match of Beckham and the LA Galaxy versus the San Jose Earthquakes, so it was a big important game.

The Galaxy won the game 3-1! Possibly one of the highest scoring soccer matches we've ever heard of! LOLz!

Lookin' good out there, Becks!

Keep it "up!" Ha!
