Beckham-mania hit Wellington last night, with 32,000 people packing the Cake Tin to watch Golden Balls in action. And a few of them were even football fans.
A perfect night for perving...um, football. If it were, say, Angelina Jolie playing, and 20,000 men were there ogling her, wearing shirts and waving banners adorned with openly sexual slogans, there'd be cries of sexism and chauvinism from the ladies.... but not when the boot is on the other foot it seems.
There were some dodgy looking hooligan types there causing bovver. Typical Arsenal riff-raff. There were a few incidents close to us caused by people standing in front of people sitting, with one fine example of fatherhood (in Man U livery, typical) yelling in front of his kids "sit fuckin down" over and over to a punter in front of him (that guy just behind Mike, actually).
Ooh, look, there he is! I couldn't bring myself to put up the pic of him with his shirt off... I'll keep that for my private viewing. Oh yeah, the Galaxy beat the Phoenix 4-1, as if anyone really cared. Wellington fans are getting used to defeat by now.
