DCU vs. Galaxy, in Images
Post photographer Toni L. Sandys has a very nice photo gallery of what Beckham Day looked and felt like, but I'll offer a few of my own. Like, it's tough to beat the Beckham blow-up doll, picture above, who/which apparently was tossed about joyfully after at least one of the United goals. And you thought the curves on Beckham's set pieces were impressive.
Even more impressive is the suit Quavas Kirk wore to and from the game, seen below. "Is that a lab coat?" asked a team employee upon seeing Kirk.
"How do I describe this outfit?" Kirk replied, in response to my question. "It's a white zoot church suit. And we usually wear this down South, we don't bring that up North too much. I bought this in Miami when I went down there, and I wore this to my senior prom."
Any locker room reaction?
"Wow, how 'bout that, huh?" Devon McTavish said. "That's big-time. Not a lot of people can pull that off."
"Ben [Olsen] fell to the ground when he saw it," Kirk reported. "He told me to wear something flashy and I was like, 'all right I've got something for you.' "
Flashy? I guess. Maybe a little.
As for this shot below, there were plentiful post-game autographs available, provided you were interested in several scribblings that looked nearly identical, accompanied by a trusty number for identification purposes. Perhaps Zach Wells should be a doctor when he grows up.
Oh, and late in the first half there was a blizzard of balloons streaming onto the field, plus one beach ball. Some team employees gathered up the balloons, leading to a pleasing popping sound whilst United was deflating the high-flying Galaxy. The beach ball's air was released, although a few balloons remained stuck in the netting as play continued. Anyhow, before the beach ball met its demise, it was nice to see the security folks doing their part to keep the party going.
Lastly, this video of Gonzalo Martinez's groin incident has been making the blogging rounds today. The solution for a Beckham ball into the unmentionables seems to be several well-placed squirts of water. Yeah, we started with a blow-up doll and we wound up with groin recovery. It was a good day.
