Remember when I made the case that soccer is SO fucking gay? No, really. My gay boyfriends even agreed with me. Now, the Daily Mail provides even more pictorial evidence of this phenomenon. Then, there is the following quasi-justification of the shameless grabbing of David Beckham’s bum by his dodgy teammates:
The 33-year-old football ace was seen getting groped by his AC Milan team-mates, Andrea Pirlo and Clarance Seedorf during the Serie A stars game against Bologna at the Renato Dall’Ara stadium.
But it wasn’t just a case of cheeky behaviour, the pair were congratulating midfielder Beckham – and also touching him for luck after he scored his first goal for the club he is on loan to for three months.
An AC Milan insider said: “Everyone knows Beckham has a golden touch and he has proved that since he arrived. Italy is a superstitious country and people often touch things for luck – the players are doing the same with Beckham and touching his bottom because he is seen as a lucky mascot.”
Pictures of the players touching the bottom of Beckham were published in several Italian newspapers, all with the headline: “Now he is a lucky talisman.”
Since the former Manchester United player arrived in Milan, the side has not lost a match both in the Italian league, nor in a friendly. Top selling Italian sports daily Gazzetta Dello Sport said: “He even brings luck – since he arrived not one defeat.”
For Becks, these three months with AC Milan may seem to last forever. Or maybe not . . .
