Hard to kick a soccer ball off a red post box.
That's how it usually works. The ones who finish first etc, get the acclaim. Go figure, eh?
Or how many US athletes, given that their insane medal count was bigger than the Chinese insane medal count.
Ta, can do.
Beckham's not that talented.
She's sold about a zillion records globally, and been no 1 in the US album and singles chart along with about 30 other countries, so my presumption is that she's better known than not.
F1's weakest territory is the US; it's a huge TV sport, with each GP getting about a billion global eyes on it; huge in the ME and ASEAN nations too, which is why all the new GP circuits are in places like Bahrain and...China.
These threads are funny. Loads of people steaming in with comments about X person not being well known and really not knowing what the fuck they're talking about...
Actually having him drive the bus in would have been pretty cool!
Bend it Like Beckhambauer?
Kick it Like Beckham?
Sadly, he was busy driving a car round a track in Valencia
Damn that F1 schedule

Manchester United are the biggest soccer brand in the world. Becks was world famous while he was still at Man U, before he moved to Madrid.
Indeed, the story of the Beckhams is how he hitched himself to her while she was the megastar and he the son rising, and since then their situations have reversed. Also, of the two of them she's the publicity whore I reckon...
you'll have to explain this again in a couple of page's time...
I cant beleive its still being disscused
What on earth are you blabbering about?
And I dare say the IOC would not have us believe that Olympic ideals are limited solely to the sporting contests we just saw over the two weeks.
I'm aware of that sad case.
Oh hum that's totalitarian governments for you.
Maybe they could use "things can only get better" as a theme song.
Don't know if anyone else has posted this, but much of the Chinese media were less than impressed with our contribution
