Bend It Like a Century 21 Agent

The Brit is coming, the Brit is coming: As anyone with a passing interest in popular culture already knows, David Beckham has agreed to a five-year deal worth a rumored $250 million to join the L.A. Galaxy team. It's a huge amount of money for a player clearly past his prime, but this is a wager that Major League Soccer is willing to make. They hope it will be a turning point for the sport in the U.S., and will significantly raise the profile of the MLS. Before that happens, though, and for a much smaller investment, I'd strongly recommend that the league get its hands on a simple URL that has apparently eluded them. (Oh, wait, right—soccer. No hands.) Come on, even the dormant women's league controls its own initials.

I think you are underestimating the investment required to pry the url from the epicenter of the real estate industry. If that URL changed legions of mustard-jacketed brokers would riot.

Real estate, real estate, real estate! That's all you Hoboken boys ever think about.

That's not true! In the spring my fancy lightly turns to thoughts of fresh mozzarella.
