Ciao Davide!

Ciao Bloggisti!

Be still my beating Milanista heart, David Beckham might be coming to town in January!! It still hasn’t been officially confirmed but AC Milan’s vice-president Adriano Galliani announced today that the former England captain “wants to train and play for Milan.” If Beckham does decide to sign, he would only be on short-term loan from Los Angeles Galaxy, his current team.

Now, while the man doesn’t really set my loins afire (ugh, that voice!), I wouldn’t mind having some extra eye candy in the city. Hey, I just might run into him at the local H&M, rifling through the 3 for 1 underpants rack. Oops, I forgot! The only underwear he’s into is this:

As for the possible ramifications for AC Milan, personally, I don’t think Beckham would be a good fit for the team. They have all the players they need right now, like Ronaldinho and Kakà. And let’s not forget that Milan’s star playmaker, Andrea Pirlo, is on the road to recovery and should be back in December. But I’m sure Milan is just salivating at all the publicity as well as the merchandising they can sell with the Beckham name. Even though Becks is a great player, he and his family are basically a very successful brand, pimping their way around the world.

And what about the missus? Yes, Posh is loving the LA life right now but I’m sure she’s just gagging at the chance to present her “collection” during Milan fashion week in February. And I’ll bet my Sweet Tarts the freakoid TV producers in Italy are going to give Victoria her own reality show, Buongiorno Beckham. Just think of the possibilities!! Ooooh, I’m just imagining Posh negotiating Milan’s cobblestone streets in her sensible shoes. Or Mrs. Beckham and Berlusconi sitting side by side at San Siro stadium. Oh, what a pretty couple they would make! They’re even the same shade of orange!!

You know what, I wouldn’t mind Beckham playing in Milan just for the drama alone. Who cares about soccer! Bring on the Beckhams!!!

    I’m with you, MM – I think Becks isn’t a good fit for the team. If they’d just admit it’s a publicity stunt, I think I’d be more okay with that. I just have no idea whose spot he’d be taking, even temporarily or every once in awhile… And I can’t imagine that whatever player’s getting bumped would be too pleased about it.

    The hubby thinks Ancelotti will only use Becks for UEFA matches. I wonder what Gattuso’s reaction will be? Will they become BFFs? I can just see the headlines now: Beauty and the Beast!

    All I want to say is, I love Posh’s short hair cut.

    Yeah, even I have to admit it’s cute.

    The Armani pictures need thought bubbles! The one where he’s lying down staring at his black underwear trying to push off his pants is so weird. I think his package needs thought bubbles too… Ew!

    Actually, the only part requiring thought bubbles is his package. The rest is out of order.

  • 8. Becks: Milan forever, Galaxy never? « Milanese Masala  |  6 February 2009 at 12:28 am

    […] came out of the open and declared his desire to stay with AC Milan. As you might know, and as I wrote back in October, Becks is on loan to Milan from the Los Angeles Galaxy and was supposed to return to the California […]
