David Beckham and the LA Galaxy were in Toronto, Ontario last night for a soccer match against Toronto FC and ended up walking away with a 2-2 tie. But, during the game, an idiot in the stands thought it would be funny to throw an empty beer can at Becks as he tried to make a corner kick. Obviously pissed, Becks fumed a bit before he carried on and played as usual … helping his time with their 2-2 tie. Click below to see some photos from last night’s game … and check out the sizable beer can that some moron decided to throw at him.
David Beckham was fuming last night when a Toronto FC fan pelted him with a beer can during a football match in Canada last night. The Los Angeles Galaxy player was preparing to take a corner when the empty packaging was hurled at him from a member of the crowd at the Rogers Centre. The can was an attempt to distract the 37-year-old, who had already been covered in streamers, as he stood on the side of the pitch. Clearly unamused, Becks picked up the can and shook it at the crowd, demonstrating his displeasure. However, he managed to get the last laugh when he kicked the ball to team-mate Landon Donovan, who ended up equalising 2-2. Speaking about the incident later, Beckham said: ‘Tonight was a great atmosphere. The majority were here to enjoy the spectacle. ‘It’s a shame some people spoiled it. It’s disappointing kids see it … but it was a great atmosphere.’
Clearly not all Toronto fans are this idiotic and, to be honest, we can’t even be sure it was a Toronto FC fan who hurled the beer can … but very obviously there are idiots everywhere. It sucks that some fools have to ruin the fun for everyone but I commend David Beckham for being the bigger person and choosing to focus on the positive aspects of last night’s game rather than the clearly negative assault on his person. Becks is a pro, plain and simple.
