David Beckham sets new personal best for goals in an MLS season, leaves keeper helpless

Perhaps rejuvenated by winning the MLS Cup last season and making frequent trips back to England to visit the royals and serve as an Olympic mascot throughout this season, David Beckham is enjoying a very productive year. He now has seven goals on the season (his previous best was five in 2008, his first full season in the league) after scoring with a typically perfect free kick in a 2-0 win against Vancouver on Saturday.

Beckham now has five goals in his last eight league matches (plus a goal directly from a corner kick in the CONCACAF Champions League) -- an unusual run from a guy not expected to score that often, especially a 37-year-old guy not expect to score that often. Still, it's been a welcomed bonus for the LA Galaxy as they make a push for the playoffs.

At this rate it's starting to look like age will ravage his underpants modeling career before his playing career.
