There was a time when David Beckham could not hit those signature set-piece balls off artificial turf – not with the same swerve and verve, at least.

That time, apparently, has long since passed.

Watch his free kick goal in Montreal today, an equalizer as the Galaxy split the points with the Impact inside Olympic Stadium.

(By the way, a draw against an expansion team would have been a disappointment last year. But in 2012, a very different year for the champs, they’ll probably take the tie.)
