David Beckham, Big Softie

David Beckham opened up recently to BBC One’s “Breakfast Show,” dishing on life in LA — and how he cries during TV shows and movies!

Beckham told interviewer Nick Grimshaw that he was “kind of an emotional wreck with movies. I can’t get through some movies without shedding a tear.”

Goldenballs’ favorites? The Office, Friends – and, surprisingly Bruce Willis sci-fi vehicle Armageddon. Watch Beckham discuss this and much more in the video above.

Porno site, weathercaster pay bets after France seals World Cup ticket

There are a few things we learned when France dug themselves out of a huge hole and qualified for the World Cup against Ukraine:

  1. Never bet against the down-but-not-out Les Bleus
  2. The French have an affinity for bets involving nudity

First on the docket, one of France’s biggest pornography producers (so we’ve heard), Marc Dorcel. Owner of website of a mature nature, Dorcel offered to remove the pay wall on his site if France managed to qualify.

Once the final whistle blew and France were through, Dorcel’s site crashed in 45 seconds. To Dorcel and his staff’s credit, they tried to protect themselves against the droves of members looking for free content, but alas, accidents happen.

Of course, it shouldn’t have come as a surprise. We all know how guys react to free porn:

Ghislain Faribeault, Dorcel’s Vice President of Media, told the French press:

"Seeing the score change in a positive way, we started to try and beef up our servers and prepare for scalability. We decided this operation in a bit in a hurry. But we did not expect such a result!"

Luckily, it seems nobody left empty-handed. Dorcel’s company quickly set up additional website to help handle the load, and users got the free media they were assured.

Now, not to be outdone, French weathercaster Doria Tillier had a lot of the web wondering if she’d come through on her promise to do the weather in the buff once Les Bleus sealed their ticket to next year’s summer bash in Brazil.

Well, Tillier came through on her promise. Indeed, scantily glad in nothing but a pair of boots, Tillier ran around a lush green field while cheering:

You didn’t really expect to SEE anything unmentionable, did you? It might be foreign TV, but there ARE standards of decency.

Speaking of decency, our favorite part of the video? The sound of nearby church bells ringing as Tillier frolics about. We’re hoping nobody saw anything too titillating.

The USWNT take Hawaii by storm

Alex Morgan (left) and Sydney Leroux are pictured below, clearly enjoying a well-deserved vacation in Hawaii. Since last summer, these two helped the USA win the gold medal in the Olympics, and ushered in the inaugural season of the National Women’s Soccer League.

But Morgan and Leroux weren’t the only USA stars on vacation in Hawaii. In a funny coincidence, fellow gold medalist Kelley O’Hara was seated right next to Leroux on their flight to Hawaii:

Not only were they enjoying some poolside relaxing, but being professional athletes, it’s no surprise that they took in some of the gorgeous sights of Hawaii:

However, it didn’t take long to realize that the fact that these ladies were all gathered in Hawaii at the same time was no coincidence. It looks like there’s a not-so-well-kept secret wedding on Saturday. Abby Wambach (below, left) and Sarah Huffman (right), both Western NY Flash players, have been rumored to be dating for some time now.

If Huffman’s Twitter photo of her left hand with a rather large ring on it wasn’t a dead giveaway in August, it’s all but clear now what’s about to take place.

Wambach and Huffman are registered on ourwedding.com for a wedding reception in Poipu Beach Park in Hawaii for Oct. 5.

Portland Thorns player Marian Dougherty all but confirmed the big event in an Instagram post, saying “Let the wedding festivities begin, can’t wait to celebrate the marriage of my two best friends,” and tagged Wambach and Huffman in the post.

It looks like the happy couple will be tying the knot on Saturday, and many of their oldest and closest friends are there to share in the wonderful day with them.

We can’t wait to see the photos from what is sure to be a picturesque ceremony.

Attempts to reach Wambach and Huffman were unsuccessful.

Say hello to Neymar the barber

Not only can the young Brazilian score incredible goals, looks like he can give a pretty good haircut too.

In preparation for their Confederations Cup clash with Mexico, midfielder Lucas Moura decided he needed to look as fresh as possible. Neymar decided to lend a helping hand and give his teammate a brand new buzzcut outside of their team hotel.

If it doesn’t work out for Neymar at Barcelona, he might just have a second career to fall back on.

Ah, the one and only Diego Armando Maradona.

The Argentine legend was spotted at the Dubai Tennis Championships earlier this week and met former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki. After a long, grueling match, the ex-champ chatted up with Maradona for some Q&A’s and “friendly” photo shots.

Always the sly dog, Maradona couldn’t take his hands off the Danish sensation. For the record,  Diego’s long-time partner, Veronica Ojeda, was nowhere in sight.

"For my homies"

When Manchester City’s Edin Dzeko made up for his earlier penalty miss against Arsenal by tapping in from close range, he also revealed a cryptic message that roughly translates to: “For the friends from my neighborhood” or in our American slang, “For my homies.”
Watch his goal and shirt celebration below:
