Beckham in D.C.

Still trying to figure out what was a bigger deal last night: Beckham at RFK, the after party, or Gilbert Arenas reportedly getting on stage at the Beyonce concert. Did that really happen?

Interesting Becks tid-bits from around the globe:

There were a lot of Beckham jerseys at the game last night. Thousands, for sure. But I'd venture very, very, very, very few were worn by D.C. United supporters. The Guardian disagreed:

A sea of Beckham shirts buzzed with excitement as he warmed up on the sidelines in the first-half - and these were all DC fans. They may have been chanting "DC United" throughout the game, but a stretch or sprint from their new adopted hero was enough to draw attention away from the game and focus on the man of the moment.

Guardian, you're just making that up. Only a truly deranged D.C. United fan would wear a Beckham jersey to a D.C. United game.

SportsTalk 980 radio person this morning: "I'm not yet understanding why I should care>...He hasn't won anything. What has he won? He's won nothing. He's not won anything." Well, right. Besides this.

From Lindsay Czarniak's blog, after a friend asked if Becks was really that good looking in person.

Me: Honestly -- and factually -- yes....

And don't forget, this is not just about him. Landon Donovan, his star teammate, told me, "Yes, we both have very hot wives."

From Now Magazine:

Image-conscious David, 32, and Victoria, 33, have taken to using super-expensive French face cream recommended by new best friend Katie Holmes.

'They sometimes do it together when they're both free, and both keep talking about the intense heat, how it's so different from Spanish heat, and how they have to protect their skin from ageing,' a friend tells the Daily Express.

From The Sun:

And just before donning his famous No23 shirt, he told the Galaxy bench his injured ankle would be just fine on the greasy pitch - and beamed: "It's just like England!"

Greasy? You want greasy, head to the concessions. Walking past the boardwalk fries fry stations earns you like +15 cholesterol. Why do baseball fans get better food, anyhow? Couldn't they at least sell some cut veggies on the night 46k come out? And would you believe that RFK actually gets an honorable mention from PETA for their veggie-friendly baseball food? I guess that's all out the door when a hunk of meat like Beckham wanders through.
