ONE DEGREE OF BECKHAM SEPARATION FOR TIMBERS FANS!!!

In an incredibly significant (though how, exactly, it’s hard to say) piece of cosmic kismet, here’s an item from tonight’s Galaxy v. Chelsea stat sheet:

Alan Gordon (David Beckham 78).

That means that many Portland Timbers fans saw the man (ex-Timbers phenom Gordon) who Beckham replaced as a substitute in his (Beckham’s) MLS debut on the occasion of his (Gordon’s) professional (Timbers) debut.

It’s all incredibly exciting. The chief difference is that Gordon scored a goal in his first match, whereas it seems Beckham did sweet fuck-all tonight.
