Beckham was never on the Red Bulls, he's on the LA Galaxy. Some of the big stars on the Red Bulls are Thierry Henry (former Arsenal, Barcelona, French National star); Rafael Marquez (Mexican National Team captain); Juan Pablo Angel (former Aston Villa star, Colombian National Team). Would be cool if any of those 3 showed up.

Beckham never played for the New York Red Bulls. The latest star is the Frenchman Thierry Henry (especially popular among the Irish community, since an infamous goal in November 2009...)
