I am actually sad that David Beckham has decided to retire.
He was the reason I started watching football when I was 10 – together with my Dad encouraging me. But Beckham was the start of it. I think it’s fair to say he’s part of my life :P
I’m sad because he’s the one person that I want to meet so bad for the obvious reason but now that he has retired from football, I don’t see how I can ever meet him :/
When I was 13, Beckham was in Malaysia promoting Castrol. It was a school day and I told my Dad the day before that he must take me to KL (I was in Seremban) because I want to meet Beckham then he said okay (I thought he did).
The next morning I was ready to go and he asked: “Where are you going?” – my stomach dropped.
“I thought we are going to KL to see Beckham?”
“When? It’s school day.”
I think I cried.
We didn’t go of course.
That was my best chance and now it’s gone and probably will never come back.
