Today in “American news outlet botches something soccer-related and causes us physical pain”, Long Island Newsday has a doozy. The story is about baby names, which means you already know where this is headed. Somehow, this is David Beckham’s fault.

Among a list of odd baby names parents on Long Island have burdened their children with is a note about the Beckham’s new baby girl. Oops. Should there be an “and” where that comma happens to be?

Should we give Long Island Newsday the benefit of the doubt? Hell no! Why would we? They’d hardly be the first American site to screw up a soccer related fact. Sigh.
