David Beckham "temporarily" leaving the Galaxy to play for AC Milan is the equivalent of having a "trial separation" from a very average girlfriend and then meeting an absolute bombshell. Why would he come back? The Galaxy is an average team in a very average league. Beckham still has some considerable talent left. Why would he waste it sending gorgeous cross passes to guys who can't finish? We need to get over the arrogant idea that Major League Soccer is someday going to be as competitive as the European leagues.
