There is no shortage of sports gamblers out there in the world. There are fairly simple insights you can bet your money on. Yes, some fans like to gamble on when and how many goals will be scored. You can even bet on who will get injured or given a red or yellow card.
What you can’t bet on, though, is having any money left by the time it’s all said and done. The house always wins, but the bookies don’t always get it right. Crystal Palace Premier League Club fun is making that well and clear in this photo.
Who Is Becks?
This photo was taken on March 24th, 2001, during a FIFA World Cup Qualifying match between England and Finland. We counted at least five nose pickers in this picture. Can you spot them? And what in the world does "Simply the Becks" mean?
Are they referring to Becks, the brewery? Is there someone whose name is Rebecca who's simply the best of the Becks? Or are they saying our team is simply the best? Are you picking your nose trying to find the 'becks' booger right now? Oh, yea David Beckham!
Time to Play!
Play on words, that is. This makes us think about that moment when you try something new, you work really hard to be creative, you look at your art, and you're just so proud of yourself. Judging by the facial expression of this old German man, he is, indeed, very proud of his sign.
He worked really hard on it, and it didn't go unnoticed. There's nothing like putting in that hard work and watching it pay off. Now all that's left is to hope the players put in their fair share of hard work too. And not all of them do!
Soccer games can be exhausting. You're on your feet for the whole game, watching your favorite players go at it and the stands are full of sweaty old men who a thirsty for beer. However, all you are really thirsty for is a good serving of Cristiano Ronaldo.
This young fan sure was! She made quite a big sign to make sure he sees it. We wonder what his reaction was! Is it possible that a player of his caliber even paid attention?
Let's Character Build
This boy's name is Timothy Strausburg III, top of the line musician-slash-soccer fan whose very existence spelled the difference between the success and demise of the one and only Manchester City. This may be his first game, but it's not his first rodeo. Little Tim Tam Straus brought in the heat and made himself a slammin' sign for his first soccer game ever.
He's ready to cheer, he's ready to scream, he's ready to win, and you're the one that he wants! All jokes aside, this young kid looks like he's having a blast. Who doesn't remember their first soccer match? Best time ever!
