There Is Now Peace In The Galaxy: David Beckham And Landon Donovan Have Patched Things Up
Praise be to God. Los Angeles Galaxy teammates Landon Donovan and David Beckham have reportedly kissed and made up. Their relationship was strained due to comments Donovan made to Sports Illustrated writer Grant Wahl, author of The Beckham Experiment.
Beckham practiced with the Galaxy on Monday for the first time since returning from a five-month loan to Italian club AC Milan. Since his arrival back in Southern California, he has been peppered with questions about Donovan calling him a bad captain and portraying the English star as stingy in an upcoming book.
Although things may have been ironed out, Beckham has said that he is “…not going to talk about what was said,” and “[t]hat was between me, Landon and the manager (Bruce Arena). I said the other day everything that was needed to say.”
Well, I for one am relieved that these two soccer legends have made their peace and are committed to finishing the Galaxy’s season stong. Yet, I am left to wonder how these two managed to work things out, especially when you consider what Donovan said about Beckham and how Beckham called Donovan “unprofessional.”
Perhaps they worked out a Strangers On A Train-type of scheme, where each one of them will off the other’s wife, but I doubt it. Beckham seems very happy in his marriage to Victoria and Donovan appears quite content with his marriage to actress Bianca Kajlich.
I suppose the only other possibility is that they agreed to videotape and distribute videos of their wives involved in erotic lesbian lovemaking sessions.
I’d buy that for a dollar! But not one penny more – these are trying financial times, people.
