1.  Beckham Calls it Quits– David Beckham may not go down as one of the greatest players in soccer history, but he will surely be one of the biggest soccer celebrities of his time. The 37 year old just played his final professional game for his latest club PSG.  Beckham rose to fame in the early 2000’s for a variety of reasons, from marry former Spice Girl Posh Spice to having a movie named after him, and for being a decent soccer player as well. However, his reputation will likely be tarnished for his lack of production on the national level, as he was never able to lead England past the quarterfinals of the World Cup while manning the team.  Regardless, soccer lost one of it’s biggest stars yesterday, and we salute Beckham for a fantastic career! Something tells me this won’t be the last time we see Beckham on a football pitch, as he would likely make a great manager or coach.

2. Astros Blunder– The Houston Astros are the worst team in the American League, and the Miami Marlins are the only team worse then them in the whole league. With plays like the end of their game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, it’s pretty clear why they are struggling. The Astros and Pirates were tied up 4-4 in the bottom of the ninth, and after the pitcher drew a routine pop-up, it looked like Houston was going to push it to extra innings. Except….that didn’t happen. Check out the blooper below.
