Pele v Beckham: Pop Star Training
Footie legend Pele has a few choice words for David Beckham regarding his lifestyle in LA, and they don’t center around Becks’ new hairdo.
“David Beckham is more of a pop star than a player. From my experience with New York Cosmos, I would advise him to be very well prepared for the matches.
“I know the level of play in the league. It is well balanced, and the spectators will demand a lot from him as their star player. But when there’s no training or practice, then he can stroll through Hollywood… David must be the one to lift the sport. He must give the right answers on the pitch, that is not Victoria’s business.“
We’re not too concerned with David’s ‘pop star’ lifestyle – when he is fit to train he will, and he’s never been one to shy away from hard work.
Something along the lines of, hey – your ass might be in the breeze if you need to bend forward more than 1˚ in that get up. Or, we’re all fans of floaty mini dresses with heels – our staple summer diet – but is this really a workable ensemble when kickin’ it with the fams? All of whom are in casualwear? Or, how were you able to relax given the high percentage of individuals aiming for upskirt photos?
Or, remember back in the day when you used to wear combat trousers and baseball caps? That Victoria would be very welcome here, and we would love to buy her a drink. Oh, what we wouldn’t give for a WAG-assisted time machine.
Random: The Beckhams were voted one of the top 10 best dressed couples by Vanity Fair. Keeping with the style notes, David’s look in backwards cap and shorts: yea or nay Kickettes? Initially we thought, cute, dressed down, very American. Now we’re thinking, this is more a still-living-at-home-with-the-’rents-part-time-rapper look.
Wait, what was the point of this post again?
