David Beckham: Futbol Meets Football

David Beckham: Futbol Meets Football

David Beckham will be making his debut with the Los Angeles Galaxy in July but apparently there’s a debate between futbol (soocer) and football. Adidas flew out New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush to meet Beckham in Madrid and settle the debate.

“Since I signed with the Galaxy, you know every time I do an interview, I’m trying to get myself to say soccer because I’ve always said football,” Beckham has said.

Bush added, “And when you think about our sport we call football, it would seem like [soccer] would be the sport you actually call football because you’re kicking it with your foot, so it makes sense. We call [American football] football, but we actually throw it a lot more than we kick it.”

Watch the video below of Beckham and Bush‘s meeting!

Oh puh-lease. He does have a brain doesn’t he, or did Vix eat it, OMG. If I can switch easily between soccer and football with no problems about 10 times a day, then he shouldn’t have a problem. I mean it’s his job for crying out loud. Can’t they make some less stupid stuff for publicity. This makes him look stupid.

Can “Cruella VB” not even manage a glimmer of a smile when posing with her so called “fans”!

What an egotist and over-rated, over-hyped piece of crap this woman is!

I think its a great marketing idea by Adidas. I don’t know how much it will help sales but I like it.

The videos entertaining.

# 5

That video was so freakin cute. I love how both athletes are able to make fun of themselves and have a great time.

# 6

he looks like a d*ck.

# 7

Cute videos..both looks hot…

# 8

Victoria looks like an aunt of mine and she is 50!

Correction: Private jet en route to Bali, Indonesia FROM Singapore, not TO Singapore.

That’s awesome. Becks juggling an American football was amazing. That is so hard to do and he made it look so easy to do. Both men are incredibly talented at what they do. Good luck to both of them.

you hipocrist. let him be. if you’re actually from the UK you will see its not as easy as you think to confuse football with soccer. American football does not exist in the UK so the word soccer is not in our vocab. so piss of you pricks that think you know everything!

And Diana if VB looks like your 50yr old aunt then she must look better than you, you must be sick of jealousy! Your aunt must get more date invites than you!

Who the hell cares if they are being cheese or taking the mickey out of themselves for publicity? it seems to be working and its none of our freaking business.

I concour #11

I am not from UK 11, better stop being so small minded.

Double Yum!

I agree with 11, no one in the UK ever uses the word soccer (unless we’re making fun of the Americans calling it soccer, lol!) I don’t think Beck’s looks dumb cos he confuses the words soccer & football, if I were him I’d simply refuse to use the word soccer ;)

Anyway cute vid…are you sure those pics are recent? Cos for his last RM match he’d shaved his head closer so all the blond was gone & so when it grows back it’d be his natural darker hair (unless he dyed the tiny bit of hair he has again…)

^ The pics on the plane I meant…not the pics on the football pitch

He looks kinda hot in an American football outfit.

Well, he always looks kinda hot in just about anything he wears.

Hot????I don’t think so. Looks kind of mean and scary with his wacko blonde hair do.

Is it me or does he look like Sting and she looks like Jackie Warner (from Work Out)

One word for Dave GORGEOUS!

He’s not hot in that, he looks like a skinny naked ballerina in the video (mostly because of the golden rights), and on the top picture his arms are like a girl’s. I would think that being an athlete he’d be at least a bit more buff.

Tights not rights *sigh* Jared can you fix that?

I think Becks probably dyed his hair again because in the pictures we saw of him at heathrow he had a hat on. Either way, I can’t believe he still manages to look so good after getting about zero sleep, the guy is gorgeous.

And on the soccer-football debate, it will be hard for him to change. He’s referred to it as football god knows how many times in god knows how many press conferences and interviews so changing to the word ‘soccer’ will be difficult. I say he should stick with football, if they’re so smart over there they’ll know exactly what he means. Or he could save the bother and stay in Madrid.
