David Beckham and his two youngest sons Cruz and Romeo were slimed at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports Awards in Los Angeles on Thursday.

Of course, it was gold-colored goo:

"Golden Balls" was being presented the Legend Award by his kids when the star received his customary slime shower. Despite being covered in goo, Beckham still managed a few words in his acceptance speech:

"When I was young, my dream was to be a professional soccer player," he said. If you have dreams and you believe in yourself, your dreams can come true. Thank you very much."

Zidane, Beckham take on Bale and Moura in “Beckingham Palace”

When you were a kid, your parents probably often told you to never play sports indoors. "You’ll break a window!"

Well apparently David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane, Gareth Bale and Lucas Moura weren’t very good listeners:

Broken trophy case? No big deal. Expensive chandelier? Eh, it’s replaceable. Beating the young stars? So worth the damage price tag.

Drink it like Beckham! Superstar gets his own Scotch

image

He was the world’s highest-paid footballer not too long ago and is married to Posh Spice. He has his own line of underwear and men’s fragrances. Heck, he even has his own MLS franchise now! Once in a wile, David Beckham must ask himself, “What don’t I have?”

The answer: his own liquor.

Well, at least until now, because “Golden Balls” is linking up with British drinks giant Diageo to release a new scotch called Haig Club. A bottle of Beckham’s drink of choice will run you about $65 and is said to have hints of butterscotch and toffee flavor, which sounds delicious. However, drinking this scotch will not make you a better footballer (just to be perfectly clear).

Terms of the partnership — including whether or not Beckham is actively investing in the brand — weren’t disclosed, but a Diageo spokesperson said the global superstar, along with business representative Simon Fuller (yes the American Idol producer), would help develop the brand, its strategy and positioning.

“David Beckham and Simon Fuller are renowned for breaking boundaries and shaking up markets in every sector in which they work,” Diageo’s Global Head of Premium Core Spirits David Gates said in a released statement. “We are immensely proud to partner with them on our first large scale grain whisky innovation.”

Celebritiy tie-ups in the liquor industry is clearly what’s hot in the streets nowadays. Diageo has already teamed up with Sean “Diddy” Combs to buy upmarket tequila DeLeón, while George Clooney and Justin Timberlake have also put their names on tequila brands recently.

Beckham added: “The House of Haig has a rich history and I’m proud to be working at the heart of a home-grown brand which has built an incredible heritage over 400 years. Working closely with Diageo, we look forward to collaborating on Haig Club, valuing and treasuring the Haig traditions while reinventing this whisky for years to come.”

Beckham plans Xavi move for Miami franchise

David Beckham is already starting work in recruiting players good enough to compete in MLS. First on the list is Barcelona midfielder Xavi, who would be 37 years of age when Miami kicks off in 2017. Xavi has already expressed his desire to stay at Camp Nou but three years down the line and his body may not be up to the rigour of La Liga.

Sticking with the Barca theme we’ve also got the latest on Victor Valdes, whose proposed move to Monaco is on the verge of collapse. Where could he be heading? Click here to find out.

Sadly, David Beckham’s new team is not ‘The Miami Vice’

image

Ever since David Beckham announced his intentions to bring pro soccer back to South Beach, the rumor mill has been in overdrive. And on Wednesday, nostalgists everywhere got a boost with the news that Crockett and Tubbs may be back to prowl the mean streets of Miami.

On Wednesday, the Palm Beach Post cited unnamed sources that said one of the names under consideration for the team was “Miami Vice FC.” They followed up by posting images purportedly used in the franchise’s presentations to city officials as they try to secure a stadium location.

But just as we were dusting off our white blazers and cueing up Jan Hammer’s iconic theme song, David Beckham’s publicist poured cold water on the whole thing:

Oliveira followed up by strenuously denying any such presentation existed at all. What a shame! Guess we’ll have to leave those loafers and pink v-necks in the back of the closet after all.
