David Beckham and Zinedine Zidane in the same public location? Yeah, that’s nuts. The two titans signed autographs for a bunch of salivating fans at an adidas store in France, recently. This is actually the tame version that adidas put together for an adidas is all in commercial.

What really happened at the store was much more chaotic and looked something like this (after the jump) …

To celebrate the launch of his new bodywear H&M collection, David Beckham starred in this short film where he runs around chasing a car because, clearly, going to a neighbor’s house and calling the driver (Posh, is that you?) was out of the question.

Besides, had Becks just used a phone we would’ve been deprived of him leaping fences in a single bound and constantly adjusting his wedgie. Nope, couldn’t have done without seeing that.

With ads like these it’s stunning that players like Joey Barton are saying they no longer fear Beckham. I don’t know what Joey’s talking about, nothing is more intimidating than a man running around the city in his H&M briefs.

After an exhausting Valentine’s Day full of endless pursuits by my many male suitors I finally arrived home at my apartment Thursday evening and crashed on the couch. Who am I kidding? My day was much closer to THIS. I was exhausted from a day of weights, classes and practice.  As I flipped on the television and started watching the day’s soccer highlights a brilliant thought flashed through my head. What if all these good-looking, extremely talented and sometimes foreign soccer players were my Valentine’s?

And so I bring you: Kristin’s Top Five Footballing Valentine’s (In my dreams).

 

5. Chris Pontius – This 25-year-old midfield cutie (above) currently plays his club soccer for MLS side DC United but spends most of his free time running through my mind!

 

4.  Aaron Ramsey - Maybe it’s just the Arsenal fan in me coming out, but man does look good in his jersey. Although he’s struggled to find a consistent spot in Arsenal’s first team this season, he’s been able to hold down a top spot in my heart. Congrats, Aaron.

 

3.  Carlos Bocanegra - Although this US Men’s National Team captain is a little bit older, he still deserves to be in the top 5. Who doesn’t want a mature, sophisticated (NAKED) gentleman anyway, right ladies? He’s currently playing his club soccer in Spain, so I send him mi amor.

See the final two men of my dreams after the jump.

Zlatan

When David Beckham signed his three-hour contract (five months, whatev) with PSG recently, he received heavy praise for announcing he would donate his entire salary to charity.

So, of course, that only left one thing for teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic to do: completely make fun of him. Here’s what he recently told reporters:

“I heard Beckham’s decision and it made me think, ‘Who is most deserving of all of the money that I, Zlatan, am paid?’ The answer is Zlatan. The children of Paris are not leading Ligue 1 in goals this season. I am. I have 20 goals. The next best players have 12. Twelve! If anything, the children of Paris should be giving me even more money for having the privilege of being in the same city as my incredible quality. And so should David Beckham. Call it a Zlaritable donation.”

OMG! Did Zlatan just become my favorite player? He’s quickly trending in that direction. First, he makes fun of Messi and Ronaldo and now this. Keep this up and you might just steal my heart, you kidder you.

Just in case you’re one of those people who can’t possibly wait for the Super Bowl Sunday commercials, the 91st Minute is here to the rescue. Ok, so those people don’t really exist. Whatever. Here are a few commercials you’re sure to see during the big game Sunday. Sorry, no half-naked Beckham in H&M underwear this year.

Oh, what the hell. For old time’s sake … (after the jump).

If you’re wondering how Beckham will perform for Paris St. Germain this season and what he’ll bring to the table, that’s already been figured out – you’re welcome.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s talk about important stuff.:

 

1. Why was Becks bragging about how many clubs wanted him?

“I got A LOT of offers.”

He might as well have gone Kanye West and just told us: “Excuse my French, but I’m in France!”

 

2. Beckham said he’s giving his salary to a local children’s charity. I believe he said the charity was called Romeo’s Modeling Career. Just kidding. Nice gesture, Becks.

 

3. How lame is a five-month contract? That’s about enough time for a few photo ops, maybe a ride on the back of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s bicycle and a return trip home. Can’t wait to do this all again in five months.

Easy, guys, he’s just training …

This is no different than David showing up to the Olympics with a blowtorch, or walking through the wilderness in his underwear. This is David being David. He does things because he can.

Arsenal has been quick to point out that Becks is simply keeping fit and will not likely be signed. If you’re wondering how Beckham would do if he did join the Arsenal … well, we are too. But here’s how he’d do with just about every other club in the world.

While David Beckham’s middle son Romeo is breaking hearts in Burberry ads, the elder Brooklyn is branching out on his own soccer career.

Brooklyn is in England (well, technically it’s in New York but you know what I’m sayin’) trying out for Chelsea’s  U14 squad while father David watches anxiously.

Is it possible that Brooklyn’s future at Chelsea could be tied to David’s? Could they form a father-son duo for the English club? Could David see some time with the U14s?

I guess anything is possible, but word on the street is that Becks is still deciding between offers from England, France, the Middle East and the North Pole (Santa wants to give him a trial).

Stay tuned.

See 91st Minute Woman of Year HERE

When the 91st Minute staff got together to decide the winner of our inaugural Man of the Year Award, I gave them the same advice I’ll give my future daughters: don’t choose a man you can live with, choose the man you can’t live without.

Suddenly, the choice was obvious. So I took a sip of my strawberry banana smoothie, adjusted my underpants, turned down my Spice Girls CD and announced: I wanna, I wanna, really really really wanna zigazig ha!

And after that part of the song had passed we all agreed that David was our winner. He’s the only possible choice. The man, the myth, the brand; he’s everywhere even if we’re never there. And this blog couldn’t have lived without him in 2012.

Thanks Becks, and congratulations.

Did you enjoy that sweater mom gave you for Christmas? Wow, that new set of towels is awesome! But just so you know, the Beckhams are spending their Christmas in Maldives.

According to The Sun, Posh Spice and the family spent £250,000 on a trip to Christmas paradise. They’ll spend 11 nights at a resort that features 130 private villas, 12 beaches, 40 pools and its own Seaplane. Yup.

Enjoy that sweater, though. And bundle up. It’s cold out there.
