Chris Birchall Holds Umbrella for Beckham
This is one of the funniest things you’ll see in a while as far as soccer team jokes and pranks go. The LA Galaxy’s Chris Birchall has a laugh with David Beckham as he holds an umbrella over Beckham’s head in training when it starts to rain. Don’t want Beckham to get wet. I wonder if that was in Beckham’s contract…? That he has someone hold an umbrella for him if it rains in LA. Hilarious. It’s not supposed to rain in LA, right?
I guess Landon Donovan doesn’t get this kind of special treatment, yet.
What’s even funnier though is that while Birchall held the umbrella for Beckham he sang the Rihanna umbrella song. I think….
Chris Birchall is making $145,125 per year playing for the LA Gallaxy while Beckham makes just $6,500,000, not including endorsement deals or the deal he has with the league to buy a team at a set price that’s already gone up in value.
I’m guessing Birchall might actually hold the umbrella for Beckham for a fair price, as would a number of LA Galaxy players making the league minimum of $40,000 per year. They’d probably happily sing a song of his choice while doing so, too.
