The British Are Coming!

So rode and spoke Paul Revere. 

Now every media outlet in the U.S. is blaring a new refrain of this as David Beckham, British soccer phenom, and wife Posh Spice, British rock phenom, are relocating to the states so Beckham can play soccer for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Soon the definitive British accent of the two will hit the airwaves to promote soccer, shoes, clothes, Pepsi, Coke, you name it, but the prospect is so huge that no newspaper, radio, or TV outlet in the land did anything but trumpet it as the biggest news of the day, next to the “surge” of troops in Iraq.

I’m not sure what will come of this American English-wise, but it will be fun to find out.

Let’s just hope the guy can still play soccer so this phenomenon-in-the-making doesn’t appear stillborn.
