Sadly, David Beckham's new team is not 'The Miami Vice'


Ever since David Beckham announced his intentions to bring pro soccer back to South Beach, the rumor mill has been in overdrive. And on Wednesday, nostalgists everywhere got a boost with the news that Crockett and Tubbs may be back to prowl the mean streets of Miami.

On Wednesday, the Palm Beach Post cited unnamed sources that said one of the names under consideration for the team was “Miami Vice FC.” They followed up by posting images purportedly used in the franchise’s presentations to city officials as they try to secure a stadium location.

But just as we were dusting off our white blazers and cueing up Jan Hammer’s iconic theme song, David Beckham’s publicist poured cold water on the whole thing:

Complete hogwash in Palm Beach Post on #Beckham plans for Miami. Nothing ever surprises me and some media actually believe it..sheesh

Oliveira followed up by strenuously denying any such presentation existed at all. What a shame! Guess we’ll have to leave those loafers and pink v-necks in the back of the closet after all.
