Auction them off with her career.
2004-07-14 12:28:05 PM

Now I know where to look for porn.

The Official Match Ball used on the game against Portugal, that left UK out of the Europe Cup, the same ball of the penalty, that David Beckham miss, will be auctioned on eBay. Pablo Carral, a fan, catched the ball and he took it out from the stadium.

/that's all, really
2004-07-14 05:18:34 PM  
nice headline submitter!
2004-07-14 05:18:38 PM  
Who in the heck is David Beckham, and why should I care?
2004-07-14 05:18:54 PM  
Bullshiat, the ball he kicked cleared the stadium...
2004-07-14 05:19:33 PM  
10 million euros?!

people are crazy
2004-07-14 05:19:50 PM  
anyone care to tell us how much 10.000.000,50 translates into in US Dollars?
2004-07-14 05:19:50 PM  
My opinion on the headline?

To quote the Guinness beer commercial: Brilliant!

/Beckham overrated as a soccer player
2004-07-14 05:21:36 PM  
10 million Euros is $12,383,372.59 U.S.
2004-07-14 05:22:01 PM  
Ten million Euros???? Are they nuts??? For that money I could buy whatever team Beckham plays in.
2004-07-14 05:22:28 PM  
Seems pretty shady. Don't these things usually get authenticated and insurance bonded and such? Ah well, I guess if they can get some idiot to give them 10million euros for it, more power to them...
2004-07-14 05:22:43 PM  
12,383,074.52 USD
2004-07-14 05:23:05 PM  
That's $12,383,999.83 US

Think I'll just keep playing with my own balls.
2004-07-14 05:23:21 PM  
suicidepoop according to it is almost 12.4 million US Dollars.
2004-07-14 05:24:59 PM  
I think it would be like 12.4 million dollars
2004-07-14 05:25:07 PM  
here's a more interesting story on it:

and my unfunny, unaccepted headline:
The ball that Beckham launched into row Q is fetching millions on e-Bay.
2004-07-14 05:27:30 PM  
my bid of 9million euros got whopped pretty quickly, maybe i should go to 11. cause its worth it
2004-07-14 05:27:40 PM  
casanunda: actually, that kind of money wouldnt even buy you zinedine zidane's bad foot
2004-07-14 05:29:00 PM  
catched? I wasn't aware that was a word.
2004-07-14 05:31:40 PM  
Who in the heck is David Beckham, and why should I care?

David Beckham plays soccer ( in Europe. He used to play for Manchester United, then got traded to Real Madrid. He's currently the one name that non-soccer fans would recognize. Plus he's married to former Spice Girl "Sporty Spice" Victoria Beckham.
2004-07-14 05:34:24 PM  
Victoria Beckhamn was Posh Spice. Much hotter then the almost-butch Sport Spice
2004-07-14 05:34:50 PM  
Yes buy the ball for 12.4 million dollars and after that:

"The buyer will pay the shipping cost."

What a chode.
2004-07-14 05:35:34 PM  
How much did the Steve Bartman ball go for at auction? I'd rather have Marty McSorley's stick. Burn that thing and rid my team of a curse.
2004-07-14 05:35:36 PM  
KJUW89 i thought that was Posh spice? Those chics should have been a p0rn film group and not "musical" group.
2004-07-14 05:36:26 PM  
wow. 10.000.000,00 Euros

Whats up with the comma in the decimals spot?
2004-07-14 05:36:27 PM  
Although this will mean the forfeiture of my balls, she was Posh Spice, not Sporty Spice.

/hangs head in shame
2004-07-14 05:39:44 PM  
So once all the fake bids are sorted out, it should go for what, $100?
2004-07-14 05:40:22 PM  

Isn't that a European way of displaying numbers?

Something like that.

2004-07-14 05:50:02 PM  
jenlen obviously missed the rash of Beckham cheatin' articles. Lucky Farker.

/sick of both of them, even though they're both hot (ok, ok, she's too skinny... but still pretty)
2004-07-14 05:50:45 PM  
KJUW89 Hellloo!! No one would want to marry Mel Chisholm aka "Sporty Spice".
Victoria Beckham nee Adams was "Posh Spice" and married Becks.
Emma Bunton was Baby Spice and the only one with a post-Spice singing career worthy of mention.
Mel Brown was Scary Spice.
Geri Halliwell was Ginger Spice who doesn't have a clue what she really wants to do.

/Was 10 when they started and so is allowed to know their names...
2004-07-14 05:51:12 PM  
probably a fake bid, probably mostly fake bids

It is just a soccer ball of questionable authenticity.
2004-07-14 05:51:31 PM  
Going to Real was the worst thing that Beckham could have done. He should have signed with the Chicago Fire for MLS League Max 110,000 dollars

/got nothin
2004-07-14 05:54:20 PM  
why not post the english version?
2004-07-14 05:54:36 PM  
doccm9, did you say her? Do you even know who HE is?

(silly confused Americans)
2004-07-14 05:54:37 PM  
Balloon it like Beckham.
2004-07-14 05:58:23 PM  
/throws hands up in the air

Sorry! Being female and too old to have been a fan, I humbly apologize for choosing the wrong Spice Girl....

/not really a fan of Becks either....
2004-07-14 05:59:28 PM  
re: doccm9, did you say her? Do you even know who HE is? (silly confused Americans)

soccer is a girl sport. doccm9 is correct.

(silly wanker)
2004-07-14 06:02:24 PM  
It's nice to see the International Space Station returned that ball.
2004-07-14 06:02:24 PM  
Not my jokes, but these arrived in my emailbox and this is the only chance I'll ever get to post them on Fark:

The good news is that they're going to give Saddam Hussein the death penalty. The bad news is they're getting David Beckham to take it.

Victoria Beckham has just broken the world Gang Bang
record. In 120 minutes her shaved coont farked
the whole country.
2004-07-14 06:06:13 PM  
SpoonPlz Unless he meant Posh's "career."

HomeSkillet American football is a girls game... over here we play rugby = more aggressive and less padding...
2004-07-14 06:09:06 PM  
Who in the heck is David Beckham, and why should I care?

why do people always insist on posting stuff like this?...we get it, you don't like soccer, that's cool, noone's forcing you to....can you not understand that other people may have different likes and dislikes than you?? are you that self centred?

every sports thread has at least 3 or 4 people commenting on how much that particular sport sucks...seriously what's the point?, do they think they're going to win people over to their side?

2004-07-14 06:19:10 PM  
txt_eva: Your assumption that wearing pads makes it a less rough game is common, however nothing could be further from the truth. Wearing body aromer like they do makes it a much more violent game. Players, having the false sense of security of pads use ther body in a much more reckless way. Like a weapon if you will. No I am not saying Rugby is a weak sport, I actually think having no pads would make american football much safer. Without a helmet, only a moron is going to run full steam into a pile of 300 pound linemen with his head down. And to be honest the level of athelete playing american football is much faster and stronger than those playing rugby.
Oh I just read your 'less agressive' comment, now thats a load of crap. Ever see Ray Lewis play football?
2004-07-14 06:21:49 PM  
Wonder if some rich limey is going to buy this and blow it up in a staged media event at some pub?

/Cubs fans are hilarious

There is this site you may want to try, its called "Google", of course you may have to leave the cave first.
2004-07-14 06:25:45 PM  
Well she shouldn't have missed that kick.

/has No idea D. Beckham is not Posh Spice of the Spice girls.

"Who in the heck is David Beckham, and why should I care?"

The worlds most famous footballer... But my guess is that you already knew that.
