After the Palm Beach Post claimed there was a chance David Beckham would name his proposed Miami soccer team the Miami Vice, a furor predictably broke out online. “David Beckham isn't really naming his MLS team Miami Vice, is he?” a Los Angeles Times headline scolded. Twitter overflowed with ’80s jokes. Beckham’s publicist soon chimed in, crushing dreams and claiming the story is “hogwash.”
