David Beckham announced on Monday that the Dec. 1 Major League Soccer Cup game will be his last with the L.A. Galaxy. Beckham signed with the team in January 2007 and played in Los Angeles for six seasons. The midfielder, who led the team to three MLS Cup tourneys, already has one championship win under his belt. Beckham's considerable star power helped popularize soccer in America, drawing large crowds to games. But he's not gone for good. Beckham said he sees being part of the MLS "ownership structure" as part of his future.
