Moonlighting: David Beckham As Pub Landlord?

Back in the days when footballers earned next to nothing, made crap records and had haircuts resembling epileptic puppies, a favourite retirement plan for many was to open a pub in the English countryside. Why? We have no idea, the notion of standing next to a wooden bar, cradling a pint of warm, flat beer and having a conversation about whippets not generally being one of our top-rated pastimes.
This might be about to change, however, as word reaches us that a Mr. David Beckham is considering opening a hostelry in LA with mad chef type Gordon Ramsay.
Whether true or false this story is, we’re choosing to believe it. And make no mistake, once the venue is open for business, we’ll be reserving its private back room for our Kickette Christmas party.
