Through The Years: David Beckham Bromances
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?
Puppy Love: David Beckham & Gary Neville aka Beville
Relationships are full of firsts, especially when this was your initial foray into manlove.
And it was a special kind of love, indeed. (Certainly one not based on looks, that’s for sure). They golfed together, cooked together, trained together. In fact, Becks once said that his BFF Gary (who was best man at the Posh & Becks nuptials) was one of three mates he would trust alone with his wife naked. Let’s not talk about that, though.
True Love: David Beckham & Iker Casillas aka Becksillas
Once you experience your first heartbreak, you’re ready to apply the lessons learned to get the most out of your second go-round.
During the second phase of his professional footballing career, David let his guard down to allow his Real Madrid teammate in (to his neck crevice, at least). While Becksillas might not have been the original, to us, this Beckham bromance was the best.
Thanks to Iker, we got to see two sides of David: a sensitive soul mixed with a playful, piggybacking partner. Le swoon.
Lust At First Sight: David Beckham & Marco Borriello aka Beckiello aka The Becks and Borriello Show
Beckham moved on from his cuddle king (Iker) to assume the role of his on-loan team’s love-tap lothario. Remembering the cutesy times of Becksillas hugging and loving brings us to a happy place, yes. But seeing David’s hand on Marco’s bum brings us to a hot and steamy place. A place where memories that last a lifetime are made.
Let’s sum up this fling in two words: pure sex. Like two buddies who low-five one another for pulling hot chicks behind their WAGs back, both Beckham and Borriello enjoy being the star of this two-man show.
Plus, Marco’s been known to play away from time-to-time, much to David’s dismay. Sadly, there’s too much ego for this relationship to go the distance. But we’ll certainly enjoy watching the male bonding.
