Although Beckham didn't play or even wear a uniform while visiting Toronto FC, he aggravated his now-famous ankle injury.
"I was walking, and there was this particularly sharp and hard blade of grass that just threw me over," said Beckham, in his distinctive English accent.
"You would be surprised at how easy it is to injure yourself by simply walking down a well groomed field of artificial grass. It's just as treacherous as climbing K-2."
"FieldTurf is shit to play on," he added. "I will not play on artificial grass."
As a result, all MLS stadiums hosting LA Galaxy will specially groom their fields at the request of the British super star.
