David Beckham: Being Captain Was an Honor

David Beckham: Being Captain Was an Honor

David Beckham has scribbled another blog entry on his official site, expressing his excitement over yesterday’s win.

“Hello everyone,

I know, another blog so soon, but after my game yesterday I couldn’t wait to let you know how I felt.

It was incredible to finally start the game against D.C. United but to actually score a goal in my first proper home match was more than I could have hoped for, and an intensely amazing moment for me. On top of that I was handed the captain’s armband for the start of the game and I felt very proud to have been given that honour so early on in my career here. I definitely hope there are a few more of those!

I felt fit, so that was very encouraging and I was pleased to play a good hour of the game, but especially pleased that we won and we’re in the final of the SuperLiga. The fans were superb all night and I thought we deserved to go through, even though D.C. gave us a few problems and are a very strong team.

I’m now looking forward to our next game against Red Bull New York and hope to play a part in that. Hopefully, we can build on last night’s fantastic result.

Speak to you soon
David

    He was very good last night (and he’s not even fully fit yet) great goal, great assist for Donovan, he organized the team on the pitch and inspired the other players, i’m happy for him.

  • smooth

    Yes he was the best last night,once again proved averyone was wrong.
    Go David!

  • willa

    i heart him. and if he actually writes that blog, i heart him even more.

  • goldengirl

    Does anyone know why he was given the Captain position?

  • goldengirl

    One other question, when he plays I’ve noticed that he puts some sort of tape on the finger where his ring would be, why does he do that?

  • the one and only

    He did a great job in that game. Hope to see him playing in Saturday’s game… and if he’s a “nerd”, #4, I want a piece of that nerd!!

  • Lica

    GOOD LUCK BECKS, LOVE U.

  • WOW

    Golden Girl he does that because he refuses to play without his diamond wedding band. So he has to put tape over it so as to ensure he can’t scratch people with it. You can’t play with jewellry on but since he got married he’s never taken it off so he said he wouldn’t start with the pitch.

  • goldengirl

    #12 Thanks WOW. I think that’s made me think he’s even hotter…drool**

  • DANGASindaHAUS

    Becks is an amazing man… period. And yeah, he does that taping-his-wedding-ring-finger every game since he got married. Actually, some sports figures already doing that, too.

  • winner

    Most overrated soccer player in the world, he’s not even in the top 40.

  • Rai

    that’s what you are expected to do Mr Beckham..
    you are a european good player, you should kick the asses of all the american lame teams

  • will

    he is HOT and a great player BUT we have to admit that soccer will NEVER be one of the big sports here…it just won’t. NFL and MLB will ALWAYS be the number one sports. But i still wish becks the best.
