MLS audiences continue to wait on Beckham

The "MLS Primetime Thursday" night clash between D.C. United and the Los Angeles Galaxy (7 p.m. ET, ESPN2) originally looked to be a showcase of the oldest true rivalry in the league. The novelty of David Beckham's arrival was expected to have worn off sufficiently for everyone by now, allowing more focus on the game itself.

However, an ankle injury has delayed Beckham's first appearance in league play. The spectacle of the midfielder making his MLS debut threatens to overwhelm the match itself to a side note.
