Becks to Open Academy in Brazil
The caption is not a swing at Beckham. His plan to benefit the local youth through scholarships to his new Brazilian academy is totally admirable. But seriously, what does the Brazilian youth need to learn from him aside from the obvious superb free-kick skills? Not creativity. Not ball-handling skills. And certainly not playing with style. I think this may be the biggest case of 'coals to Newcastle' since....well ever.
Now what David can offer these kids is classes in making money. Seriously. Teach them about contracts, endorsements, and branding. Because when it comes to that no one does it better than Goldenballs. He also ain't bad at playing keepy-uppy in the South American surf.
