David Beckham has been banned from driving for six months for using a mobile phone while behind the wheel of his Bentley. A prosecutor said a member of the public spotted the former Manchester United and England soccer star holding a phone while driving through central London on Nov. 21. Beckham's lawyer, Gerrard Tyrrell, said his client had "no recollection" of the incident but pleaded guilty. Beckham already had six penalty points on his drivers' license for speeding offenses. The six more District Judge Catherine Moore gave him Thursday for the cellphone put him at the 12 points needed to lose driving privileges. Lady Gaga might have been the modern Queen of Camp even before the Met Gala decided to celebrate camp for this year's theme, but other stars like Billy Porter, Jared Leto and Celine Dion gave the "Monster" singer a run for her money with their outfits.

The best free-kick I’ve scored this season was at Luton but I don’t practise them.Some people might say, ‘well you would be a lot better if you did’, but I think maybe I would overthink it.I cross the ball all the time so I have got the natural ability and when I step up for free-kicks I feel confident and fancy myself to at least hit the target.Maybe around the box at other places I’ve not been first-choice, but I’ve scored three free-kicks here this season.I would be lying if I said I looked back at clips of other people, like David Beckham. I just feel confident when I step up.

Because then the game happened. It was … something. I think Jake Shapiro — our newly minted Rapids reporter — wrote it best: “Nobody around Dick’s Sporting Goods Park could remember a time they’ve seen any soccer team score on themselves twice in one game. If memory served the people of Colorado correct, they certainly had never … [Read more...] about What’s it like to watch the Rapids beat themselves? More fun than you might think.
