In any event, FieldTurf is the surface he's faced with
on Sunday. Following an encouraging 20-minute spell against D.C. United Thursday night, Becks will be expected to play at least some part in this weekend's match. Revs COO Brian Bilello, for one,
hopes he does: "We, like everyone else associated with MLS, [are] hopeful David will play this weekend," he said.
But Revs coach Steve Nicol doesn't care either way. "The whole thing's become a kind of soap opera," he said of the Beckham traveling circus. "Yeah, why not, we'd like to see him there...but to be honest, we are more concerned with what's going on with us," without "worrying about all the other shenanigans," he said.
