Baseball Becks & Shopkeeper Screw ups

While in Canada, David Beckham and the LA Galaxy boys took in a baseball game with the Blue Jays and the Yankees.

Toronto baseball fans got to see more action from Becks than the footie fans who turned out for the Galaxy v Toronto FC game on Sunday; he threw out the first pitch for the Jays game.

Yes, he did it with hella more style than Victoria. 

Toronto is a fabu city, and their sports fans are extremely dedicated/crazy, so the crowd went bananas when Beckham appeared.

Fashion notes: Whilst in Toronto, Becks also went shopping at Holt Renfrew (think Harvey Nicks, UK gals), but they had neither the aviator shades nor the vintage denim jeans he was after.  Can you even begin to imagine the shame, and the amount of buyers that would be fired after David Beckham shows up to shop and boost your PR campaign into oblivion, and you cannot provide for his needs?  Surely some minion should have been dispatched to a stock room to beat a pair of new jeans with a meat tenderizer and some bleach until they looked old for Becks’ sake. 

UPDATE: Becks didn’t throw out the first pitch – but he was on the mound with team-mates Jazic, Harmse and Galaxy head coach Frank Yallop,  Jazic threw out the ball.

    Ryan, so much anger! You should have gone to the game because you like the sport, and not hung all your hopes on a man with an injury that has been known to be incapacitating (to playing football, not to shopping or going clubbing). I hope you enjoyed the Beautiful Game regardless, though.

    Maybe he’s wishing he’d moved to Toronto instead of LA!

    I was at the Toronto FC game on sunday (drunk off my shit) and was pretty pissed that he didn’t play. The next day I was at the Jays game (hung to the nines) and saw him sitting on his ass again. If he’s at the next Leafs game I go to, I’m gonna pee on his flip-flops.

    Wow! A sold out show! That’s too bad for the fans missed out, but good for Sheryl. Sorry you didn’t get tix, but maybe some will come up from a private seller that aren’t too expensive. Good luck!
