Our Hollywood Joseph dishes about meeting sports icon, David Beckham, and all the excitement surrounding this year’s Olympics!
True, I’ve been more of a boxing fan than soccer fan in the past, but after getting an up-close view of the Los Angeles Galaxy last week, I realized how exciting soccer really is.
Of course, it didn’t hurt that I had more than just a celebrity sighting with super star and super jock, David Beckham, when my brother and I went to their practice at The Home Depot Center on my day off from the Hollywood Wax Museum. Don’t let the armfuls of tattoos and international fame fool you – this celebrity athlete is super cool! He was happy to pose for pictures with fans, and I got a David Beckham’s celebrity autograph on the jersey I was wearing.
Boy, did I want to ask David about his “mystery” role in the opening ceremony at the London Olympics tomorrow, but I didn’t want to come across as too pushy.
Will celebrity athlete David Beckham be the final torchbearer at the UK stadium? Will he do something with boxing great Muhammad Ali? Hmmm… my two favorite sports coming together! Well, I’ll have my eyes glued to the TV tomorrow to find out just like everyone else.
