After all my talk about missed opportunities and knowing the events happening around Melbourne, I totally missed out on David Beckham coming to Sydney gah gah gah
David Beckham says he is been surprised by the reaction to his trip to Australia.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid player is in Sydney for an exhibition match with his team LA Galaxy.
The game at Sydney’s Olympic stadium will be played in front of a sell-out crowd of 80,000.
LIKE countless millions of others, soccer star David Beckham got off a 22-hour flight from London to Sydney worn out, red-eyed and in trakkie daks.
Having your own Lear jet apparently does not shield you entirely from the ghastly effects of circling half the globe in a single bound.
Beckham managed to avoid some of the paparazzi at Sydney airport when a fake “Posh” lured the cameras in the wrong direction while he made good his escape.
However there was no avoiding the glare at his first Australian press conference, where 16 television cameras followed his every eye-rub and neck-stretch, and the flashguns popped like fireworks every time his mouth creased into that shy smile.
Like anyone else who’s flown that far, he looked like he wanted nothing more than a cup of tea and a good lie down.

Crap. And I was having such a lovely day! Why did I have to miss Becks?! Gaddamit! *shakes fist*
Le sigh. I guess it just wasn’t meant to be. Oh well, I just have to keep on reminding myself I have an awesome birthday gift waiting to be redeemed. It’s not as cool as seeing David Beckham, but awesome, nonetheless. Yep, keep on telling yourself that Nina… Awesome gift…awesome gift… awesome gift… *cries*
