With the signing of David Beckham, we can expect the LA Galaxy to suck some more of the precious ink out of the southern California press. Not that there was a lot left over for the Clippers before. With their slow start, Clippers games have already fallen off the front page of the LA Times on the bigger news days.
With the Lakers, both baseball teams, USC football and UCLA basketball already firmly entrenched as more 'newsworthy' than the Clippers, Beckham and the Galaxy will easily jump into the second tier with the Clippers and the hockey teams, and may even leap frog to the top tier. At least there's still no NFL.
Oh well. We relish being the neglected outsider anyway. Why else would we be Clippers fans?
