As David Beckham is set to return to practice this morning, in preparation for a to return to the Los Angeles Galaxy in September, one thing has been made clear to me.
People care about Beckham. People don't quite care so much about David Beckham taking the pressure off of Landon Donovan in the middle, how Donovan is going to feel about splitting corners and free kicks now that he's established himself as an international name in his own right. After last years tiff, I'm sure both parties will have their lips sealed as they push for a third LA Galaxy MLS cup. Mostly, people just care about what Beckham does.
If you thought David Beckham were simply a football star, well, then you'd be wrong. For instance, you'd be leaving out the fact that he's a fan of Glee. I guess, what with a Spice Wife and all, that one should have been a given. But did you know that Beckham's kids have Bieber fever? Not to be confused with Giardiasis, more commonly known as Beaver Fever. Aha aha.
Did you know that David Beckham and Gordon Ramsay might open up a pub together? A pub in Los Angeles how cute! I would go there all the time, just to listen to Ramsay berate his kitchen staff until they cried. Actually that'd just make me uncomfortable, and I'd eventually change the channel. I mean leave the restaurant.
For the menfolk out there, I bet you can't wait to jump into a David Beckham designed suit. Hopefully said jumping is done while donning a pair of Beckham designed Adidas sneakers, and a pair of Beckham designed underwear. Ever wonder why a single unit of underwear is called a pair, just like a pair of pants. Weird.
Sales of the Taj Mahal Lego model sky-rocketted after it was discovered that David Beckham used it to keep him busy while in Italy, doing, something, I'm not really sure. Possibly it was sport related.
Oh and this one was priceless, Tom Cruise wants David Beckham to give up football to come play on stage. I can't really see Beckham as an action hero, he's more of a subtly cerebral tough guy, like Brad Pitt. Can't you just see it, David Beckham in Fight Club II. David Beckham playing Billy Beane in Moneyball.
This I just found funny. Imagine sifting through the papers looking for silly Beckham stuff, and the headline "So Long Josie!" After reading the article I still have no idea what it's about, but it does seem like I need to watch out. Alright.
