David Beckham

I don't think I have laughed so much at a website in ages. David Beckham has his 'own' blog. He says, and I quote, "it does seem incredible that in all my time playing professional football, I haven’t had my own website". Maybe because you are a footballer and so famous that your life is recorded in the British tabloids for posterity every time you set foot outside your house David, or perhaps because your american agent thought it might help, what with the move stateside and all? Hmmm. Perhaps I am too cynical.

So, what does David have to say?

In his latest entry he reveals that "On Saturday I rode in the team coach to the game against Chivas, which was great even though I didn’t play and, obviously, it was brilliant to be in the locker room with the guys before the game and be part of the pre-match camaraderie". I am impressed. A long sentence, albeit with American style vocabulary. That's the second time in two entries that he used the word 'camaraderie' as well. I wonder which revelations he will post in his next entry?

And don't even get me started on the 'lifestyle' section which has pictures of, amongst other things, his tattoos and hairstyles and the assertion that "David is regarded as one of the most stylish men in the world".

I think he works harder and is a more admirable person than his wife, though. Personally, I don't have much against the guy. OK, he's no intellectual giant, but he doesn't have to be.

I have nothing against him either. The tone of his website is very funny though. I just can't imagine him sitting there and writing a blog, somehow.

And another thing- I've been listening to the new Super Furries album. It's pretty damn good.
