Golden Balls doesn't think you're like the rest, Milan. He wants to make this real. Why do you think he's giving you that Blue Steel come hither look? Don't look now but David Beckham's people are in talks to keep him in Italy past the end of his loan deal. He's on fire creating and scoring goals for AC Milan. England manager Fabio Capello has said that staying in Milan will only help his chances for the 2010 World Cup. It looks like he has a new lease on life. Why is he enjoying his time in Milan so much? It could be more than the football.
The BBC's Chris Charles and The Sun point out a new ritual that's a hit with Beckham and his AC Milan teammates. Bum smacking. They don't cruise the town slapping unaware homeless people like mailboxes. They smack Beckham's ass.
Smacking Beckham's ass brings him luck. It works so well that he's given the team official permission to keep smacking that ass like it don't quit.
Clarence Seedorf and Andrea Pirlo were seen playfully smacking his backside after he scored against Bologna.Wait until Posh hears about this. That mystery Serie C player who gives it up to all the Serie A boys in the yard must be licking his chops for a chance at that ass. Get in line, playboy.
And Kaka did the same as Becks notched his second goal in a 1-1 draw against Genoa last night.
Becks said: We laughed and shared a joke about it among the squad.
I hadn’t even realised Clarence had touched my backside but I’ll be happy if he does it again — because it will mean I’ve scored another goal.
So he’s formally got my permission to touch it again.
