Beckham was here to talk to our political reporter, Michael Putney, about his big plans to bring major league soccer to Miami. There has been some back and forth about where the stadium will be built… blah blah blah. You don’t care about that. Let’s get to the good stuff…
Michael asked if someone could put some powder on Mr. Beckham, and BOOM… there I was. (Thanks to another manager Stephanie, who wasn’t as excited as me about the whole thing!) As I un-shined his perfect forehead, I got to talk to him. Like for real, talk to David Beckham. I told him this would go down as a very memorable day at work and I also told him the newsroom doesn’t normally look this good cause the ladies dressed up super cute for his arrival. He started laughing and then I told him I had never been so nervous to put powder on someone before. I asked him if he would mind taking a quick picture, and he didn’t. He was really nice about it, especially since I asked my boss to take more than one. (Yes, my awesome news director took that pic)
I stayed in the studio with the other managers to watch the taping. (which airs this weekend on This Week in South Florida) At the end of the interview, we went up to ask Beckham what he wanted to do. Did he need to leave right away? He told us he could stay a bit and say hi to people in the newsroom. We decided I would walk him around and that Bill (my boss) would take pictures. (so at this point I’m like besties with Beckham. You know… we planned stuff together… like where we would walk.) When I walked out of the studio ESCORTING DAVID BECKHAM, I knew I would be getting some crap from co-workers. (& I SURE did, but it was SO worth it!)
|This is the moment I realized I was about to powder David Beckham’s face!|
|My boss took the pic, then said ‘Let’s do another one, there is a ladder behind you!’|

|He signed jerseys|
|He hugged kids, seriously how awesome is this guy?|
|Michelle & I had been chatting about our Beckham hopes and dreams all morning, so when I had the chance to shuffle him to her desk… I did it!!|
|We snuck a few photo bombs before Beckham was like ‘It’s okay, I’ll take a picture with you guys if you want.’ Then I said, ‘Yo, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want.’ (No, I didn’t, but I totally should have)|

|Thanks, David! You rocked our world!
