Becks Plays, Vicki B. Pays

After spending some time in the far East with his team the LA Galaxy, David Beckham and co. made their way back to the US to partake in a friendly match against FC Dallas in Dallas, TX yesterday. This game was the first one played in Dallas where Becks was able to play as member of the Galaxy (he was unable to play last year due to injury) and was meant to showcase Becks's fitness to play for the English national team later on this month (a rep from the English team was in the hiz to assess Becks's performance) ... the result? The game ended in a 0-0 tie. Here are a few pics of David Beckham doing his thang on the soccer field yesterday:

David Beckham finally appeared in Dallas as a member of the Los Angles Galaxy, but Dario Sala made six saves to help FC Dallas tie the Galaxy 0-0 in a preseason friendly Saturday night. Beckham played the entire game and did not register a shot on goal but did pick up a yellow card in the 87th minute for dissent. After the caution, the Galaxy captain engaged in a shouting match with FC Dallas players Andre Rocha and Marcelo Saragosa that resulted in Beckham having to be separated from Rocha by his Galaxy teammates. The game was a makeup for Beckham's missed visit last year during SuperLiga 2007 when Beckham did not make the trip to Dallas because of an ankle injury. Both last year's game on July 31 and Saturday's game were announced sellouts. Although there were a few empty seats on Saturday among the announced crowd of 20,500, fans took full opportunity to capture Beckham this year. Flash bulbs popped throughout the game, particularly every time the English star lined up for a free or corner kick. Franco Baldini, general manager for England coach Fabio Capello, was in attendance to watch Beckham and report back to Capello on whether the 32-year-old midfielder was fit to join the national team for England for its international friendly against France in Paris on March 26. Beckham currently has 99 career caps for England, but was not recalled for Capello's first game as England's national coach against Switzerland last month ... Los Angles' two best first half scoring opportunities were a result of Beckham passes. Beckham curled a corner kick from the left side in the 17th minute which resulted in an open shot for Alvaro Pires, but Pires' angled his header wide right of the goal. In the 34th minute Beckham sent a free kick from 30 yards out to the baseline which Donovan headed back to Abel Xavier, but Xavier's shot from about five yards away was deflected by Sala. FC Dallas did not have a shot on goal in the game.

Even tho it doesn't sound like there was much excitement in yesterday's game, there was at least one portion of the game that looked like it posed a bit of ... worry ... on Becks's part. Here are a few pics of Becks and a team mate trying to protect themselves from harm during the opposing team's free kick:

HMMMM ... it's tricky bizznazz being a soccer player -- you spend most of your time kicking the hell out of balls but then you have to spend a portion of your time protecting your own balls in return. At least we know that Becks has a good handle on what needs to be done when the time is right. He's got himself a nice handful, it appears.

After game, even tho the match ended in 0-0 tie, Becks still thrilled the fans by stripping off his jersey and sauntering off the field in all of his half-nekkid glory:

So just because the Galaxy didn't win doesn't mean that we don't win in the end.

While Becksie poo was bizzy playing with his balls in Dallas (his soccer balls, folks), wifey Vicki B. took their boys Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz out for a lovely afternoon on the town here in SoCal. After a quick trip to a gymnastics class in Sherman Oaks, VB took the boys shopping at the outdoor Century City mall and then it was off to Barney's in Beverly Hills ... here are a few pics from the family outing yesterday:

Yeah, it was basically a typical SoCal Saturday afternoon for Les Beckhams. It's unclear if Becks will be returning home to his family here in LA or if he will be flying off to play with the English team next week but I'm sure VB and the boys will continue to find things to occupy their time while daddy's away.
