Golden BallsPosted: July 24, 2012 Filed under: Random Workout | Tags: David Beckham, Football, Olympics, Soccer 17 Comments
I don’t think I’m really in a situation to complain, because I consider myself to be privileged to be doing what I do-
We’ll just leave this here:
Be sure to wipe the drool from your chin peeps …
My blog today is about community. Your video made me cry, because it’s exactly what I was trying to convey!!
I’m biased and have a certified man-crush in regards to Sir Golden Balls (Just ask my wife … ).
It may just be a marketing video however the joy, emotions and passion shared amongst those invoked is so pure.
I always hate poo pooing on a great thing. I think it’s great that people have that kind of reaction when meeting someone they admire, root for, or whatever you want to do to a celebrity. But as a society, that emotion is misplaced, isn’t it? Why don’t we do that with our loved ones we see everyday?
Let me spin it the other way. Isn’t because of his fans part of the reason he is a Gagillionare? So shouldn’t he have that reaction when he sees his fans?
Sorry, but my emotion in this comment is probably misplaced itself. I might just be missing my wife…….
No worries mate! Its hard, has she arrived in theater safely yet? What “sealed the deal” with me personally in this video is the little dude and his Mum at the end.
I feel we all become complacent with our emotions over time. The thank you’s, I love you’s and your special loose there meaning. Personally, what solidifies this for me is separation. Yeah I might make a mess of the laundry but I miss not being able to do that for you, the dishes a goodnight kiss. We pooh-pooh these emotions in the present although when we are apart they take on a whole new meaning. The video: It’s polarizing and viral marketing 101. You either love or hate Golden Balls and I tend to fall into the prior (Self confessed man crush). He’s a good chap, a rare breed in today’s world.
My Son and I were at this game. I missed my Son’s first steps, first words and his first two birthdays while being deployed. Watching this touching story unfold in front of me … Made me cry and grab my Son for a hug. Best baseball game I have ever been to.
That was really great! Thanks for sharing.
The wife is in theater. She actually gave me a call on Sunday. I almost didn’t answer cause I couldn’t think of who would call me after midnight. But boy am I glad I answered. Good talk….
But as for Beckham. I am sure he is a great guy. I don’t know much about him cause I don’t follow football (soccer). I meant no ill will toward the man.
Amazing! I wish I could “like” your blog and this video 100 times.
Thank you Amanda! You know who would have made this spectacular video even better?!? Don’t make me say his name …
I’m going to go ahead and say that it’s probably all for the best, and basic human decency, that Mr. “You Know Who” was not involved =)
Oh thank you for sharing this! Made my day a little bit better! 🙂
The joy is so pure! The look in those two guys eyes when he walked in … The only thing better would be a Spice Girls reunion. 😉
Thanks for another great post today. very heart warming.
Omg even the guy wanted to kiss him!? Haha. I thought it was so sweet that the little boy was in tears! He must have been shaaaking inside…
Gosh I know I would have been!
I loved it. I loved that he touched the hearts of those people. Man, sometimes in this world cynicism and pessimism prevail. Every day, you’ve got to stoke the fires of hope and optimism. And you did that.
Thank you! He’s one of the good guys in the sporting world. Yeah he may not be perfect, neither are we. Still smiling each time I watch it 🙂
