Beckham, call it quits.

I remember seeing the film, Everybody's All American, starring Dennis Quaid. In the film, a superstar professional (American) Football player retires and then can't resist coming back even though he is far past his prime. Sound familiar, Brett Favre? Michael Jordan?

Professional athletes have a hard time knowing when to call it quits. I suppose when a sport is how you have defined yourself for your entire life, giving it up just because you aren't your best or making the big bucks doesn't really compute.

It turns out that David Beckham will not be able to play this entire MLS season. His England career is essentially over. He can no longer hold the starting spot on AC Milan. It just doesn't sound like he has any more "top" choices. I am sure LA would like to keep him hobbling around to sell shirts, of course.

Becks lookin' mighty knifed up.
