David Beckham, 37, has played in more matches than almost any other English soccer player, but he won't get a chance to add to his 115 caps this summer in London. The LA Galaxy midfielder announced Wednesday that he has been left off Great Britain's roster for the 2012 Olympics. “Everyone knows how much playing for my country has always meant to me, so I would have been honored to have been part of this unique Team GB squad,” Beckham said in a statement to Britain's Press Association.

MADRID, Spain -- He is at the top of the television news, even gaining "News Alert" status on the stodgy British Broadcasting Corp. He is in every newspaper in Great Britain and Spain, sometimes even on the sports pages. He is larger than life on the sides of buses chugging through world capitals, his eyes the size of truck lights shining on everybody he passes -- and everybody he passes seeming to bask in the glow. He has become, simply, larger than celebrity. Soccer star David Beckham is more than a sports story in soccer-crazed Europe and Beckham-crazed Asia.

As the old saying goes: "You're not famous till you're famous in the U.S." OK, so it's not really an old saying, but when it comes to Victoria and David Beckham, it certainly seems to be the goal. If you don't know the couple known to their fans as Posh and Becks, don't worry. You soon will. She's the former Spice Girl-turned-modern fashion icon; he's the hunky soccer star who recently signed a multiyear, multimillion-dollar deal to play with the Los Angeles Galaxy. They're huge in Europe.

Still not convinced the television talking heads are running out of topics to fill the hours devoted to the NFL? Mr. Flip offers this example, then: Last week on ESPN2's First Take, commentators Skip Bayless and Jemele Hill presented their lists of the league's top five best-looking quarterbacks. There is probably some context to this, but Mr. Flip doesn't care. Oh, and you probably want their lists. Bayless: 1. Brady Quinn (Cleveland Browns), 2. Brett Favre (New York Jets), 3. Tony Romo (Dallas Cowboys)

Derek Jeter has two. Britney Spears? Ten. Beyoncé, Antonio Banderas, Sarah Jessica Parker? They're all part of the club. Yes, we're talking celebrity fragrances, which have recently reached new levels of saturation (figuratively and literally - ever sit next to someone wearing Spears' Midnight Fantasy?). Shockingly, stars are jumping on board because this stuff is big business. Jeter's cologne, Driven, raked in $27 million in sales last year, according to Forbes . We'll give you a second to take that in. Still with us?

WASHINGTON -- Major League Soccer drew an announced 15,504 fans per game last year. But that was before David and Victoria "Posh" Beckham moved from Europe to the United States and became magnets for folks to whom soccer finishes a distant second to their favorite sport of celebrity-gazing. Many in the sellout crowd of 46,686 at last night's D.C. United-Los Angeles Galaxy game were there for goals and kicks and saves. But - if the number of Beckham jerseys and swooning fans was any indication - many also came out to forge some connection, even a distant one, with the Galaxy soccer diva known as "Becks," who was making his Washington debut.
