David Beckham knew that signing with the Los Angeles Galaxy would present the challenge of making Americans care about soccer -- doubly tough in L.A., where most people don't even really care about sports, period. But he probably didn't know he'd have to fend off challenges to his manhood from rapper The Game, who has challenged his new citymate to a soccer duel.
"I'd kick David Beckham's ass on any given day," the rapper boasted. "I'd just pick the ball up and kick the s**t out of the stadium, game over."
"I'm an intellect as well as street smart," he said in a different interview. "You combine those and you've got the ghetto Bill Gates. It's probably why I'm the best rapper in the world." Even The Game, though, couldn't muster up the boast that he was the best soccer player in the world, saying that he was merely "pretty good."
The Game also took issue with the WWE wrestler of the same name, saying that he was "much stronger" and that "I was The Game long before he came about. He's on TV wrestling and it's pretend, made up. I wrestle in real life and I win."
