What would you do if you saw your football idol live in the flesh whilst you were having your photos taken in a photobooth?
Fans were posing inside a photobooth in Team Great Britain shirts and paraphernalia at Westfield Stratford City Mall, next to the Olympic Park, when a certain England, Manchester United and Real Madrid legend popped in and asked the fans if he can join them. How can they refuse him, seriously?!
This was certainly a masterstroke from athletic apparel maker Adidas. The reactions were priceless, to say the least. Have a look at the video:
The kid's reaction to seeing his idol says it all, doesn't it? I am quite sure Becks made his day as well as all the others lucky enough to have their photos taken with him.
Beckham, for all his tattoos, still exudes the 'good guy' factor. Filipino fans and media were equally lucky to have seen him here on December 2011 whilst his team, the LA Galaxy played the Azkals.
You think David Beckham is all PR? I don't think so. Friends from UNICEF vouch for his sincerity in talking to kids, and this was without the spotlight of the media following him that day. After the Azkals match, Becks promised Phil Younghusband his signed #23 jersey in the post-game presscon. How would Becks give Phil his shirt, with the Galaxy bus all ready to leave and the bodyguards nervously looking at their watches?
Well, Becks left the presscon after he was done, only to make a surprise re-appearance with a signed jersey in tow. Truly a class act.

With lucky fans.
With the kid who cried his eyes out when he saw Becks.
Last July 23, 2012 was a historic day for the new Yankee Stadium as it hosted a football, er soccer match for the first time in its relatively new history. The old Yankee Stadium hosted a football game 36 years ago.
Here's Yankee Stadium as it was being prepared for the football game.

38,602 fans watched the game between Chelsea and Paris St. Germain, which resulted in a 1-1 draw. Here's the seating layout for the game. Which are the best seats? You can see that it is a baseball stadium alright.

Not exactly the most symmetrical of venues for a football match, but certainly one packed with history, baseball wise.
July 8, 2012 was yet another historic day for Philippine football as United Football League (UFL) side Loyola Meralco Sparks carved out a 2-2 draw against Myanmar side Kanbawza FC, en route to a 5-3 aggregate win in this year's Singapore Cup.
The Sparks will next play Singapore side Tampines Rovers in the semi-finals of the Singapore Cup. Good job boys!
