David Beckham received a new first in his playing career today when a 'love struck' male fan ran onto the field to hug and high-five him, as his LA Galaxy side clung to a 3-2 lead over the Colorado Rapids in America's Major League Soccer. A shocked Beckham looked on as the fan was knocked down by Galaxy teammate Chris Klein and then pinned by one of Beckham's suited security men. But ever the gentleman, after realizing he was in no danger, Beckham helped pull the fan to his feet before the youngster was taken away. "I was slightly concerned when I first saw him running at me because he didn't have a smile on his face and he didn't have a Galaxy shirt on," Beckham told the LA Times website. "So I didn't know if he was going to come and give me a hug or something else. These things happen in games all over the world. Luckily, he just wanted to give me a high five and that was the end of it."
Awww ... what a good sport. Becks is a sweetie even when he's not sure if he's about to be accosted by an unknown assailant. Good for him. Pics not enough? Click HERE to watch the video. [Source, Source]
In related news, the littlest Beckham, Cruz, showed up at the Galaxy vs. Rapids game over the weekend showing off a few new tattoos ... just like his daddy:
Aww ... so cute. You know, it won't be long before these pretend tattoos become real tattoos. Something tells me that the Beckham boys are prolly gonna follow in their father's body modification footsteps very early on ... surely to the chagrin of their parents. Cruz would look ace with a full back tattoo, no? [Source]
