Sports Saturdays On Empty Streets: David Beckham

Posted 6:52 AM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels: ,
One of the most searched sports celebrity, David Beckham, has captured the audience far and wide. From the most talked about match up with Posh Spice, Soccer deals and accomplishments, to Television and Print ad endorsements it is rather difficult not to look and admire one of the World's Manliest Men.

Here are more facts about David Beckham, one of the world's sought after figure:

David Robert Joseph Beckham also known as OBE was born 2 May 1975. He is an English football midfielder currently playing for Milan (on loan from Major League Soccer club Los Angeles Galaxy) and the England national team. Beckham's stint with Milan is a two-month loan, which began 7 January 2009, in order to retain his fitness levels during the MLS offseason. Beckham earned his much-publicised hundredth cap for England against France on 26 March 2008.

He has twice been runner-up for FIFA World Player of the Year,and in 2004 was the world's highest-paid footballer. He was Google's most searched of all sports topics in both 2003 and 2004. Such global recognition has made him an elite advertising brand and a top fashion icon. Beckham was captain of England from 15 November 2000 to 2 July 2006. He made 58 appearances as captain, and ended his tenure in that role after the 2006 FIFA World Cup finals, however, continued to make contributions for the England national team in competitions after this.

Beckham's career began when he signed a professional contract with Manchester United, making his first-team debut in 1992 aged 17. During his time there, United won the Premier League title six times, the FA Cup twice, and the UEFA Champions League in 1999. He left Manchester United to sign for Real Madrid in 2003, where he remained for four seasons. While at Madrid, Beckham became the first British footballer to play 100 Champions League matches. In his final season, Real clinched the 2006–07 La Liga championship title—Beckham's only major trophy with the club—in the final game of the season on 17 June. In January 2007, it was announced that Beckham would leave Real Madrid and sign a five-year contract with Major League Soccer club Los Angeles Galaxy.

Beckham's contract with Los Angeles Galaxy became effective on 1 July 2007 and gave him the highest player salary in MLS history. He debuted for the team on 21 July in a friendly versus Chelsea at The Home Depot Center, and on 15 August, he had his first start with the team, scoring his first goal in the 2007 SuperLiga semi-final. His first league start then came on 18 August in front of a record crowd at Giants Stadium.

Aside from that trivia, mentioned earlier he has done several commercial and print ads, David Beckham has just recently completed an Armani Print Ad of which he has admittedly felt a bit awkward with since he realized how people are literally focused on his crotch - even though he had it coming especially since he signed up an underwear deal.

Here is what he had to say about the photo shoot and deal he had with Emporio Armani

Aside from his body which a lot of women and men have been drooling over have people have also been following the trend of how his hair has changed over the years. It is this plus his style in clothing that truly earned him a True Metrosexual tag. :)
Hope you Enjoyed this Sports Post. Till the Next time. xoxo

Soccer is the sport that has the most following world wide. Putting a pretty face in there made it more consuming even for the women who were never into the sport to begin with. I guess in his own way, David was revolutionized the game in terms of marketability.

... I just wished they'd dub him whenever he talks. A George Clooney or a Bruce Willis voice-over would have been a lot, lot better to listen to. David's own voice sounds like someone kicked him in the nuts while he was in his puberty years. :)

Just my take. :)
