David Beckham is a good dude, have to say, and a decent actor. Hilarious hidden camera routine he was in on with Ellen DeGeneres.
A beauty of a goal in the OHL a few nights back from Ryan Strome of the Niagara Ice Dogs, courtesy of my boy KD. One day I hope to try to replicate this effort in a certain PS3 game. Gets better with every replay.
