David Beckham's History Of Free Kick Badassery Has To Be Witnessed!

Filed under: ZportzInspirationDavid BeckhamSoccer

David Beckham is pretty damn good at soccer, and he's STILL good at 38 years old, with just a small amount of time before he officially retires. He's had 20 years to hone his skills, and countless trophies to show for it.

What was his one skill that he seemed to hone above the others?

THE FREE KICK!

Exhibit A (above): Head shaved, Beckham gets a free kick in the game against Greece in 2002 — and it's down to the wire. Not just any wire. England needed to score to have a chance at making the 2002 World Cup!

HOLY SHIZZ!!

Mind you guys, this isn't the only time he's pulled off an amazing free kick! In fact, it seemed to happen more often than not!

If you want more examples, be sure to ch-ch-check out the other videos AFTER THE JUMP! So fab!

The game will miss you, David!

All good things must come to an end, but David Beckham's legend will live on!

At only 38 years-old, David signed a five-month deal to join the Paris St. Germain in January, and straight up donated all his salary to charity. If that didn't tell you the end was coming — and he was just going to go out having fun instead of earning — well we're sorry this is coming as such a shock to you!

We'll pretty much believe whatever Jane Fonda tells us at this point, because girl has eaaaarned it!

Plus, she's 100% right: staying active is one of the most important parts of aging. We've seen it over and over again how someone who was very healthy starts to decline fast the moment they retire — unless they keep up the pace!

Jane says that exercise itself is the most important part of her daily routine as she ages, and at 75 while looking like that… we believe her!!

Selita Ebanks Has Her Angel Wings Hung Up For Her

Every year, Victoria’s Secret aims to put on the best fashion show ever!

This means that the models have to re-try out, no matter how many times they’ve walked before, and Selita Ebanks learned the hard way that there’s no such thing as loyalty in fashion.

The supermodel talked about being forced into VS retirement, saying:

"You have to show up in your panties, and you have to walk and be pleasant and say hi to everyone and hope that you’ve still got it. I didn’t make it. Go figure! I’ve done, what, five, six shows? I’ve experienced my V.S. days."

Ouch!

Oh well, at least she has more time to work on her self control, since NOT punching people tends to take up a lot of time.

This also means we no longer have to hear her complain about those pesky diamond panties either.

Everybody wins!
