Your First Confirmed In-Game Interview During Super Bowl XLI

Wednesday, January 24, 2007

One Mr. David Robert Joseph Beckham. Apparently there was a bidding war for his first major interview on U.S. Television that I was unaware of. Either way CBS won the thing over also-rans Jay Leno and Oprah, and Becks will be one of the soon to be many interviews for the big game.

From The Sunday Mirror- UK.....

DAVID BECKHAM is to give a TV interview which will be screened during the Superbowl final - watched by 80million Americans.

Becks, 31, hopes he can win over the US and their sports fans to bring his and wife Victoria's Brand Beckham to America.

As well as 80million US TV viewers the 75,000 fans in Miami's Dolphins Stadium will also see Beckham's big interview on giant screens.

Oh what a treat for those in attendance Beckham AND Prince......they must have died and gone to heaven. I don't know how much sense this actually makes considering no one watches soccer in America, and it's unlikely they ever will. But hell they are both called's worth a shot right?

Maybe they can speed up the process and give Beckham US citizenship in time to play for us in the World Cup in 2010.

Ok maybe not.

But Becks will score goals in the MLS, if he isn't hurt all the time. He only has to beat some MLS scrub in net, so it won't be that hard for him.

I find it highly unlikely that any team, either Euro or U.S., bids on Beckham solely for his soccer skeelz. He's always wrung extra bucks out of teams because he's worth merchandising and marketing dollars, pure and simple. Even if he sucks, people want to see him. He's like the male Anna Kournikova.

um, it's called "soccer" in America and the super bowl isn't a fucking soccer game!

so how 'bout, ya know, an interview subject who can bring some insight to the game, not to banging spice girls.

Except that no one wants to see Anna K anymore. I'd have to say he's more like Sharapova.
