Beckham Deal Still In The Works

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

images27Despite an ultimatum from the LA Galaxy that a deal be complete before last Friday or the negotiations over David Beckham would end, AC Milan isn’t conceding defeat just yet. 

Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti insisted, “We have still got 20 days to close the deal. At the moment Beckham is indispensable for Milan. Galaxy has forced the situation, but there is time before March 9.”

Meanwhile, Beckham is reminiscing about his time with the Galaxy, “I’ve always said I don’t regret things and I don’t regret the two seasons at LA. They might have been disappointing in that we haven’t won anything or even made the play-offs — but I’ve met some really good people and there are really good people at the club.”

At this point it seems inevitable that Beckham will become a permanent fixture in Milan. All that’s left to consider is the family.

“It’s going to be tough for the family because when you have children, the main decision is where the kids are going to be happiest and, to be honest, the kids are so settled in America and so settled in their school.

“Me and Victoria will always put our children before anything. That’s the decision that, if something does happen, we will have to look at. Obviously, if we didn’t have the children, we would move straight away but we have enjoyed living in LA and love living there — and the kids are happy there.”

So, Posh and Becks fans, we can still hold on to the hope that the Family Beckham will at least reside in Cali in the off-season. Little consolation, I know, but we’ll take what we can get.

The Love List

Saturday, February 14th, 2009

Ever since the days of Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe we’ve been obsessed with the idea of celebrities dating athletes. In honor of Vanentine’s Day here is my list of the best celeb/athlete couples.

1. David and Victoria Beckham - What’s not to love?

2.Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen - Two people this beautiful owe it to the rest of us to have lots and lots of beautiful babies to populate the earth.

3. Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly - I love how he instinctively wraps a protective arm around her. Jeter may be a ladies man but he’s still a gentleman (A-Fraud could learn a thing or two from Jeter).

4. Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias - And they said it wouldn’t last… This on again, off-again couple have been a hot item since 2002. At least their relationship is hot because neither of them is too warm in the career department.

5. Tony Parker and Eva Longoria Parker - They’re cute together but I have one small problem with this pair. Every chance Eva gets she gushes about what a great marriage and great sex life they have. The Golden Rule of Public Life… Don’t put yourself up on a public pedastal or you’ll eventually fall from it.

6. Dario Franchitti and Ashley Judd - They remind me of the beautiful sophisticated old-Hollywood type love story.

7. Cory Hart and Pink - They may not have old-Hollywood glamour but has there ever been a pair more perfectly suited? Rumor is they are patching up their marriage and I hope it works for them!

8. Jeff Gordon and Ingrid Vandebosch - He seems like an all-around good guy so it’s nice to see him get a happy ending with a beautiful Belgian model.

9. Reggie Bush and Kim Kardashian - The injury-prone former Heisman winner and Kardashian (I’m still not sure why she is famous???) don’t have a love story for the ages, but if they’re good enough for the pages of the gossip rags they’re good enough for my blog!

10. Serena Williams and Common - I couldn’t find any up-to-date dirt on whether or not this pair is still an item but I hope they are. I’d love for the iron maiden of tennis to find love.

Honorable mention-

Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson - I doubt this one will last with all the media scrutiny but I’d like to see Jessica find a happy ending.

Mike Comrie and Hillary Duff - This former teen queen has managed to escape the fate that many of her cohorts. Unlike Brittany Spears, Lindsay Lohan and the Olsen twins, as far as we know Duff has managed to keep her grown-up self out of rehab. For that alone she deserves kudos.

Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker - America’s golden boy of tennis and a former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, that’s an all-American love story if I ever heard one!

Milan To Bid For Beckham

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

250px-david_beckham_nov_11_2007On a 2 month loan from the L.A. Galaxy to AC Milan, David Beckham scored his first goal for the team on Sunday in his 3rd match in a Milan uniform.

This is good news for Beckham who hopes to impress England coach Fabio Capello, who will attend Milan’s match on Wednesday to assess Beckham. Bad news, however, for the L.A. Galaxy who, no doubt, would love to have Becks back in LaLa Land when the loan agreement with Milan expires on March 9.

I’m inclined to think that Beckham will stay put and Milan will buy out the Galaxy for his rights. They have made it clear that they want him.

“If he decides to free himself and wants to (stay), we will welcome him with open arms, but he belongs to another club and we’ve got to thank them because they were very kind with us,” Milan vice president Adriano Galliani said, according to the Gazzetta dello Sport Web site.

Beckham, whose goal is to make England’s team for the 2010 World Cup, will play against better competition and get more exposure playing in Europe. In the MLS it seemed he was more of a side-show act paid big bucks to draw a crowd.

If he’s not ready to hang up his boots just yet then AC Milan is definitely a better place to prepare for one last run at the Cup. Though David’s lady love, Victoria, may beg to differ. According to a post on perezhilton.com, Posh is none to pleased with the prospect of packing up the kids and moving to Milan. She prefers to raise the couple’s boys in a locale where there won’t be a language barrier, such as London or L.A.

Ronaldo to Real Madrid

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009

After recently being named the 2008 FIFA World Player of the Year it seems that Manchester United winger Christiano Ronaldo has agreed to sign with Real Madrid.

The Portuguese-born superstar is pretty much the hottest thing in soccer since, hmmmmmm… let me think… David Beckham.  He’s leaving Man U for Real Madrid, surrounds himself with beautiful ladies, has a habit of experimenting with hair styles, he has it all!

If he continues this trend he’ll be BFFs with Tom Cruise and playing with the L.A. Galaxy before we know it!!

On a serious note, can we take a moment to be thankful and rejoice in the fact that soccer players love to strip their shirts off!cristiano_ronaldo_99?
