A David Beckham for Phil Mickelson trade would be win-win for U.S. and UK
Ironically, as one of the biggest stars in the UK settles in the UK, one of the biggest golf stars has settled nicely in Scotland, as Phil Mickelson is in good position after two rounds to take home the Scottish Open, as he prepares for the upcoming British Open.
I say a trade is in order. The U.S. gives the UK one golfer capable of winning a major, and the UK gives us one soccer player capable of actually bending the ball.
On the field of play, it’s advantage UK. Mickelson has some good years ahead of him, and could likely get Europe its first major since, I don’t know, who was it, Seve?
The U.S. will get a soccer player that maybe has a year or two left before his schedule becomes wall-to-wall rehabilitation stints. However, one lock of Beckham’s hair is more interesting than Mickelson’s entire body.
Plus he’s married to Posh Spice. And has a kid named Brooklyn. And does photo shoots shirtless (let Phil try that).
And face it, even with Mickelson around, it’s not like the U.S. is going to be winning the Ryder Cup ever again anyway.
So how about it, UK? This is a deal you should make because, face it, Becks is made for the U.S. Look at all the attention we give Paris Hilton for accomplishing absolutely nothing. At least Beckham has a few World Cup goals to his credit.
It’s up to the United Kingdom. The deal is on the table. Beckham and family for Phil and family. Let’s talk.

far from "posh" (exotic in the US; just this side of
Cockney in the UK). Amy's been in SI in a bikini,
and seems pretty well-read. Plus she and Phil have

only charity is buying diapers for Scary Spice's
They can have him back. Let's keep Phil. How dare you try to make this trade! Who do you think you are, Wolfie?
seriously, what else does any of us know about any
celebrity? Their personalities? Their minds? Please.
All we are supposed to judge celebs on is their looks.
But if you want deeper speculation, I believe Posh and Becks both dropped out of HS (if memory serves). Amy
and Phil graduated college. And how is a charitable
