London’s Daily Mail (linked here) was impressed to see how David Beckham was back in training to some play kickball for England someday.
According to the newspaper, Beckham, who ruptured his Achilles tendon last month to knock him out of participating for the country’s World Cup team as well as the Galaxy’s MLS season, “was pictured shovelling down a giant pretzel and slurping on a drink as he watched the LA Lakers defeat the Sacramento Kings 106-100 at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles yesterday.”
More from the story:
It’s the second time in as many days Beckham, 34, has been pictured watching the LA Lakers – on Sunday he attended a match with celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay.
However, the pair seemed more interested in comparing their Rolex watches than watching the action on court as they sat in their $2,200 seats.
Beckham’s distractions during the game may upset some die-hard Lakers fans, who can’t afford the pricey front row seats.
Basketball fans last year criticised some of the celebrity attendees for not paying attention to the game and treating it as a paparazzi opportunity.
Tuesday, Beckham was joined by his film producer friend Navin Narang and was also spotted chatting with Kim Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, who was sitting a few seats away.
