You Write the Caption: Beckham and the Yeti

Good afternoon folks. I’m about an hour from departing to Salzburg and figured I could leave you with a You Write the Caption before I go.

Yes, I know, I still owe everybody the winners for the Oguchi Onyewu/Rafael Marquez YWTC, but when I saw this photo I had to post it.

Here is David Beckham and LA teammate Abel Xavier, whose head looks like its being humped by a baby polar bear:


"David Beckham is reminded why he gave up trying different hair styles and stuck with the shaved head."

"After seeing what the microphone did to Abel Xavier, David Beckham realizes he had better try a different mic."

Okay, I gave it two tries. Now it’s your turn. Give me your caption sugestions and I’ll post winners next week.

Fire away.

  38. aj says:

    Beckham: It’s a shame his play is as laughable as his looks.

  39. Frimp says:

    “My name’s Xavier Abel, I’m not putting my name on the line for something that doesn’t look F’ing retarded!”

  40. andy b. says:

    When asked if the rug matches the curtains, Beckham can only offer a knowing smile.

  41. Sean says:

    Abel: “New coach thought this would act as a bulls-eye for Beckham to aim for on the crosses. The entire team is doing it.”

  42. Carl Setterlund says:

    He asked for Djibril Cisse and, needless to say, David Beckham was less than pleased at the Galaxy’s idea of a compromise.

  43. RedLine55 says:

    “…Honestly, I’m way too good for this sh*t…”

  44. Edward says:

    Taking the team name too far, Alexi mandated players begin dressing up as various celestial objects, with Abel drawing the Sun and Beckham–Uranus.

  45. PotomacBoater says:

    David Beckham stands by his wife, Victoria Beckham, as she announces she is to be know as “Chia Spice.”

    Alexi Lalas and David Beckham field questions from the media.

  57. Arriaga says:

    1: “I thought this was LaLa-Land… not Never Neverland.”

    2: At least now Becks will be able to tell apart one player as he watches the game injured on the bench this coming season.

  58. Stan from El Barrio says:

    Beckham to Lalas (out of earshot): “Yeah man, I told him it was the style in Japan.”

  59. Mike Caramba says:

    Dang it Stan…beat me to the punch. I was going to say:

    Nearly 6 years since his last cap, Xavier launches campaign to gain Japanese citizenship–Becks lends “full support”.

  60. Kim says:
