David Beckham -- An Injury to Boot?

11/18/2009 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

David Beckham only wore one shoe out in Los Angeles last night -- because his other billion-dollar foot was wrapped up in a medical boot.

Devastating news for the 8 L.A. Galaxy fans out there who expect Beckham -- and his powerful right foot -- to lead the soccer squad to a championship Sunday afternoon.

So far, it's unclear what's wrong with the foot ... or ankle ... but one thing's for sure -- maybe he shouldn't be carrying the kids around on it?

They sold out both playoffs games at 27,000. Their season average was right around 22,000. They had to add extra seats for their Championship game in Seattle this Sunday...sounds like more than 8 fans to me.

Stop trying to be "cool" by slamming soccer. Maybe try something original?

FLYSWATTER

A flyswatter is a hand-held device for swatting flies and other insects. A flyswatter usually consists of a small rectangular sheet (about 4 inches or 10 cm across) of lightweight, flexible, vented material, usually rubber or plastic, attached to a lightweight wire or plastic handle about 2 feet (0.61 m) long. The venting reduces wind drag, making it easier to hit a fast-moving target such as a fly.

In the summer of 1905, Kansas was plagued by an overabundance of flies, which, as well as causing annoyance, aided in the spread of disease. Dr. Samuel Crumbine, a member of the Kansas board of health, wanted to raise public awareness of the threat of flies. He was inspired by a chant at a Topeka softball game: "swat the ball". In a health bulletin published soon afterwards, he exhorted Kansans to "swat the fly".

In response, a schoolteacher named Frank H. Rose created the "fly bat", a device consisting of a yardstick attached to a piece of screen. Crumbine invented the device now commonly known as the fly swatter.

Sorry Mark but soccer SUCKS! Hockey is the only real mans sport. A guy takes a hit get's back into the game...teeth or no teeth. Soccer is the only sport where faking getting hit is part of the strategy. It's a sport for a bunch of Nancy Boys.

Oh Mark...If you come back at me with "it's the most popular sport in the world" crap, that's because it's mostly played by a bunch of peasants who can only afford one piece of crap ball for their entertainment.

@ Whamo

Your an idiot. Soccer clubs in Europe are far more profitable than even the most profitable NFL teams.

As to the "article" (as if anything on TMZ could ever be considered a real journalistic entity) in question, way to insult one of the more popular soccer clubs in the states. Get your kicks and punches in now because in a few years it's going to be much harder to do so without upsetting a lot more people.

LA Galaxy vs. FC Barcelona.... 96,000 people; sold out at the Rose Bowl.

Good times.

TMZ and most posters do not know jack about soccer. TMZ, just keep taking pictures of the pretty celebrities. Don't worry about how many soccer fans support the Galaxy. While we are on the subject how many fans support The LA football team. Oh yea, that's right you don't have one. Guess there is only one football team in LA.
Chivas do not count.

Hey BacteriaEP... What does profitability have to do with anything? If that’s the case then I guess Miley Cyrus must be awesome...she’s pretty profitable! Your league is a second – third class tier of football. Beckham is at the tail end of his career and he’s the only name I’d suggest non fans know and he doesn’t even want to play in your hack league. You still don’t speak to the fact that these guys are Nancy Boys that roll around on the ground when anyone is within 1 foot of them.
By the way...I couldn’t care less about upsetting people...the facts are the fact!!!! I couldn’t care less if each club made 1 billion each and every single person in the world watched...it’s still a F@cking Pansie sport with a bunch of pretty boy pansies playing it!

Hey WHAMO

You speak of fact....what facts are you stating? Sounds like meat-headed, factless, opinion to me.

Hey tyroneJmalone...
The fact is, profitability has nothing to do with quality and the fact that a lot of people watch it doesn't make the players any less of a bunch of pansies they are.
Now go kick your little leather balls around Mary!

uhHuh    

WHY IS he carrying kids if his foot is INJURED??? maybe he's 'PROTECTING' it..LOL or maybe his wife BIT HIM..she looks like an ankle KNIPPER to me!!


appears to be ANOTHER EXCUSE NOT TO PLAY UP TO HIS OBLIGATIONS with GALAXY...

HONESTLY, I've never watched him play soccer, BUT WOULD LOVE TO SEE MORE CHONIE ADS...LAY IT DOWN DAVID!

GOTTA QUESTION THE CHARACTER OF ANY PERSON WHO ALLOWS THEIR YOUNG CHILDREN TO FLIP THE BIRD & CUSS; kids are kinda big to be carrying even without a boot... then again, they're probly still breast fed too...
