Although he recently signed the richest pro sports contract U.S. history (5 yr./$250 million) with the MLS team, L.A. Galaxy, it is believed that David Beckham came to America to become an actor. Fashion designer Giorgio Armani says:
…I think he wants to be an actor, not a footballer. He is a very handsome man and his football career could be nearing an end.”
Despite being the most recognizable athlete in all of sports, Beckham didn’t even start for his previous team, Real Madrid. However, unlike the rest of the world, professional soccer in America is only slightly more popular than badminton. That’s why the average MLS player makes $100,000 a year. Beckham will make $300,000 a week to be a celebrity and put people in the stands. He’ll be 32 in May, so it’s possible he’ll honor his contract then become an actor. It makes it even more possible when you consider he’s prettier than any chick I’ve ever dated. He could walk into a sorority wearing lipstick and a wig and he would at worst be the third-hottest girl in the room.
