Just caught the Beckham highlight from today's game on ESPN - all 30 secs. of it. A very excited Steadicam was swirling around him during his post game interview. Anyone know if Galaxy games (and MLS games overall) are carrying Steadi ops or if it was just a special deal for Beckham's debut? Anyone know who scored the gig? Pretty cool. Not sure if I'd rather shack up with David or Victoria.

Not a Steadicam story but once when I was in Manchester shooting the most boring financial corporate imaginable we were loading up the van when a green Porsche pulled up and stopped. Out got David and Victoria. They saw the camera and went ballistic.
?You @#$% wankers why can?t you @#$%ing leave us alone!?
?I?m gona @#$%ing kill you!? etc?
So I started rolling. Probably not diplomatic but my policy is if there is trouble get it on tape. A good 5min of hysterical random abuse down the lens followed.
Later that day there were two big stories involving the Beckham?s so the company sold the pictures to a news network.
If they had just walked on I would have not rolled? I had actually met Victoria before and sung Karaoke with her and the other Spice Girls and thought she was ok? off key but ok? I guess some people are their own worst enemy. I wish them luck in LA.

You know I could really care less for those two ridiculous idiotic snobs!!! :angry: Especially that stupid money spending B*/ch!!! Victoria who things money just grows on trees. I wonder if David remembers what Soccer really is or has he forgotten since he became Mr. GQ!!!!!! <_<

If he wants to model than fine. If he wants to play Soccer than keep your mind on the game. I think he's just lost touch with what Soccer is all about. I guess that what the Big lime light and ridiculous amount of money can do to a person.... :(

He's no Zidane, that's for sure. I believe he got hammered 0-3 on his first game in LA ?
He's one hell of a business man though.

You mean because he doesn't head-butt players from the other team?

He didn't get hammered 0-3. They kept him off the pitch until the final 13 minutes of the game. Unless by hammered you're referring to the defender who crushed his foot.

Don't know how much of a business man he is so much as one lucky charmed life son of a bitch.

Are you interested in Beckam?... He was playing here at Real Madrid...and... and... Well, he´s now at USA. I worked too many times with him, and is a good boy, very polite... But like soccer (football) player.... he can´t play at the R. Madrid.

If some body wants jackets of R. Madrid with the name of Beckam at the back, I can get it.
Best regards. :huh: :huh: :huh:
