I cannot claim to know everything about the sport of soccer but I think I have a pretty good understanding of the basic concepts and rules of the game. Soccer superstar David Beckham, on the other hand, prolly knows the ins and outs of the game better than most … and last night, during gameplay, he got really REALLY upset about a call made by a game referee. As you can see in the photos below, Becks got rootin’ tootin’ MAD … so made that he tugged on his shorts like a little boy throwing a temper tantrum … all of this in front of a stadium full of spectators, including his 3 young sons. It was quite comical. Check it out below and try not to laugh.
He’s the epitome of cool, a gentleman on the pitch and an exemplary ambassador off it, but David Beckham lost his cool tonight. And it must’ve been justified, as the 36-year-old sporting hero blew a gasket in front of his three young sons. It was a big night for them, as Brooklyn, 12 , nine-year-old Romeo and Cruz, six , got to be mascots for the match. They joined a cavalcade of other children, distinguished not by starry or brattish behaviour but merely by their number 23, Beckham shirts. It was a great night for their father, too, as he set up both goals that secured another victory for LA Galaxy at the Home Depot stadium, where they are unbeaten. Chad Barrett tied the score in the 59th minute following a pass into the box by Beckham. Galaxy then went ahead in the 72nd minute courtesy of an own-goal from the opposition, Real Salt Lake City, which originated from one of Beckham’s trademark free kicks. But it wasn’t before the England legend exchanged sharp words with Real’s manager, Jason Kreis. Goalkeeper Nick Rimando of Real Salt Lake joined the fracas, before it was dispersed. But then, no-one can doubt Beckham’s passion for the beautiful game.
These photos are PRICELESS! I mean, the pointing photo is funny but the tempter tantrum photos? THE BEST EVER! I can totally understand how someone might lose their cool in the heat of the moment … so I can’t really blame Becks for the outburst. After all, if he didn’t flip his lid like this, we wouldn’t have these amazing photos to enjoy. LOL!
