UK NEWS/VIDEO: DAVID BECKHAM WINS ‘LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD’

Footballer David Beckham won the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ at the BBC’s Sports Personality Of The Year Awards last night and received a 2 minute standing ovation. It was emotional…. Now Beckham seems like a nice and down to earth guy, but awarding him with a lifetime achievement award at this point in time doesn’t make an ounce of sense to me.  What has he done to deserve such an accolade?  Apart from playing for Manchester United / England, being easy on the eye, marrying a Spice Girl, modeling, becoming an “ambassador []
