Gaaargh. How do we even begin to describe how the news from Milan of David Beckham’s Achilles injury has left us feeling? Curtains are drawn, two (okay, three) tubs of Ben and Jerry’s have been devoured, and Kleenex supplies are in desperate need of a refill. Teary and sleepless, we spent the night wishing for a fairy godmother to wave her wand and bring Becks to the ball South Africa.
We all know football can be a cruel game, but when it shatters the dreams of an Armani-modeling, free-kicking legend we have some serious issues with it. And we know how it feels to have our dreams torn up and thrown in our face; we still haven’t recovered from seeing Fabio Cannavaro make an honest woman out of Daniela.
Urban legend has it that we all have a twin somewhere out there.
In Barcelona’s Pep Guardiola’s case, he’s part of a triplet trifecta. The quick breakdown of his three-way hairline status:
Pep the Younger and Full of Follicle (Dan Humphrey from Gossip Girl);
Pep the Receding But Am I Bovverd? (Ruben Micael from FC Porto);
and Pep the Original and I Don’t Give a Damn. But I am kind of sleepy.
Some say David + Iker - Victoria = True Love. We say his return to Milan has reignited his interest in Marco Borriello much to the delight of our fangirl impulses. Watching David and Marco flirt shamelessly through all of their matches gets our pulses racing the same way he and original love, Gary Neville, did in the late ’90s.
In honor of his return to Old Trafford tonight for the second leg of the Milan v. Manchester United Champions League tie, we’re taking a trip down manlove memory lane. With each of his European teams, David’s had a hard time keeping his hands and heart to himself. Why don’t you join us in thinking fondly back to Beckham’s best bromantic moves?
Spanish newsstands are no longer safe. Tabloids in the country’s capital are caught in a big tizzy over the recent discovery of Iker Casillas and Sara Carbonero’s impressive public kiss.
We’re not surprised about the passionate embrace, either, since he was once known to hug and cuddle David Beckham with the same (or more) tender love and care.
