David Beckham Disses NFL owner by Wearing a Scarf

How does my scarf look Terez? Does it match or should I wear one of my others?

To the rest of the world, L.A. Galaxy superstar David Beckham’s gesture Wednesday night didn’t mean much. But in England, it was the equivalent of Becks flipping the bird at Palm Beacher Malcolm Glazer! Heartthrob Beckham, who’s with AC Milan in Europe when U.S. soccer is off in winter, was lingering on the pitch after playing against his old Manchester United squad when a fan handed him a green-and-gold scarf. Beckham put it around his neck. Glazer, the 81-year-old owner of the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, borrowed heavily to buy ManU in 2005 for $1 billion. In a country where the great American pastime of buying something with someone else’s money is frowned upon, fans smelled a rat. And immediately took a real dislike to Glazer. Glazer, who sold one of his Palm Beach mansions last year for $24 million and then started renovations on a $22 million-beachfronter a few blocks away, immediately raised United ticket prices. He sold its most popular players. And now that Manchester United is even deeper in the hole, dislike has turned to hatred — and unhappy fans started wearing green and gold (the colors of the old Manchester club 100 years ago) scarves in protest. –Palm Beach Post

Only in Beckham’s world, would wearing a scarf be a diss. Davey loves fashion accessories more than his alien wife. -TO
