David Beckham Blogs

Hi everyone,

Hope you’re all well.

There’s a lot to talk about this week so let’s start with last week’s game against Chicago Fire. I thought we played well in certain parts of the match, but unfortunately their players capitalised on the few bad spells we had and these are the moments that cost us. We’re running out of matches now so we need to pick ourselves up and win, starting this weekend against Columbus Crew.

Last Friday my wife Victoria and I were in New York on our time off. I have to say a big thank you to everybody that turned up at Macy’s - I was amazed how many people came out to see us, especially as it was a horrible day weather-wise. So thank you to all the people that stood in the rain for hours for the very warm welcome.

Nearer to England, I was honoured to be asked to present an award at the Pride of Britain awards last night. It’s great that people, who really make a difference in this world and are often unsung heroes, get the chance to shine. It was an absolute pleasure to meet Carl who won the Bravery Award. He performed an incredible act of bravery when he risked his life to save a complete stranger who collapsed onto a live railway line. If he hadn’t acted when he did, then the woman, who had fallen onto the track, would have been hit by a 100mph express train which was station bound minutes after she fell. He managed to find the strength and determination to lift the lady up onto the platform and get clear of the railway line himself 30 seconds before the high speed train zoomed through the station. Now we would all like to think if something like that happened we’d be able to help, but I have to say what Carl did was nothing short of amazing, so it was an honour to meet this incredibly brave teenager. He, and the other winners at the ceremony, are an inspiration to us all so a massive congratulations to everybody that won.

Take care,

The fact that I can write directly to you here, really shows once and for all how small the world is. Or, the world dosen't have to be small just because of that, but at least it shows something.
