You Write the Caption

You write the caption: The Beckham-Donovan edition

While nobody ever accused Landon Donovan and David Beckham of being best friends, their already awkward relationship isn't likely to ever blossom into BFF status after Donovan's revelations in Grant Wahl's soon-to-be-released book, the Beckham Experiment.

We will have to wait a few weeks before Beckham returns to the Galaxy and the awkwardness reaches record heights at Home Depot Center, there is no reason we can't begin to have some fun with it now.

With that in mind, here is the newest You Write the Caption: The Donovan-Beckham Edition:

  • CSD

    You betrayed me, now look down at the nice grave I dug for your career. Now be a good lad and jump on it.


  • CSD

    sorry typo correction:

    You are right Landon, if I gave a crap and trained I wouldn’t be all sweaty and thirsty. You look nice in your dry jersey.


  • Seisco

    Becks: See this captain’s armband? I like to think of it as a little circle of trust. And with that Spourt Illustrasted thing you are now outside of- hold on I gotta go catch a flight, but you know my mobile digits, so feel free to text!


  • The Rhoff

    “Landy, you must shave your head when you start to bald, or the party girls will no longer fight over you”.


  • Onoda

    Beckham: “Wot I fink is that when the Batman escapes on his motorcycle at the end of the Dark Knight, he’s really saying ‘f*** you’ to the evil doers in Gotham. And I fink it’s pretty obvious when I move to Milan, people are going to compare me to that kind of selflessness. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but one day, you’ll see. Gatorade?”

    Donovan: “I, uh, never saw the Dark Knight…”


  • Gavin

    Donovan: “I heard a funny joke, but I cant think of it. Give me a sec….”

    Beckham: “Yeaaa, I’ll be in the locker room.”


  • Mac

    “C’mon, now, mate, it was just a HoJo. Bianca said you wouldn’t mind…”


  • alex

    why all the hate towards landon, what he said was true, its what we all said


  • Ed Dog

    Landon: “It’s just so frustrating because nothing is working!”

    David: “You know if you mix the rogaine and the just for men formula it might help.”


  • Ed Dog

    David: “Hold on Landon.”

    Landon: “Not again David!”

    David: “Hold it right there, I’m just checking to see if I got something in my teeth. Your forehead is better than a mirror.”


  • Ed Dog

    Donovan is explaining to Beckham that his national pride is so strong that there is a magical link between his hair-line and the economy. Only now does Beckham truly understand how bad this “recession” really is.


  • Nicole

    Some of these are really funny, but sadly I can’t play along.

    I’ve just learned of some major, major sad things going on in Landon’s personal life and it’s made this so not fun anymore.


  • Brock

    DB: “Look here little buddy when taking a free kick the main objective is to get the ball over the wall and in the mixer.”


  • Donovan to DC

    Becks: “Landy I heard you wrote a book, congrats, I was wondering if you could maybe read it to me sometime seeing that you know how to read and all that educated kind of stuff.”
    Landy: “I guess, maybe I could write a few more autographs for you for the guys on the bench?”


  • Dave

    Beckham: “Don’t look so glum – in just a few months I’ll be out of your receding hairline forever.”


  • DB

    Beckham: “I will squirt you with this water bottle if you do not score on this free kick”


  • John

    Becks: “I just got back from the doctor, you should get yourself checked out, you know..”


  • Diane

    Thank to Ives for (intentionally or not) encouraging people to “lighten-up” on this story. Its certainly helped my perspective. Hilarious captions, beginning with the hair frosting and moving on.

    I can’t judge either of these players’ behavior based on scant excerpts from a book that seems–from the little we’ve seen–to lean more to tattling than the serious analysis I expect from Grant Wahl. We’ll have to see what’s in the rest.

    In the meantime, considering Donovan, this interview took place right after the last defeat in an excruciating season–which he also likely thought would be his last with Beckham given his own stated desire to return to Europe. On Beckham’s end, can’t argue about the assessment of his on field efforts for the second half of last season. But, if the story is accurate, I did wonder that it took his management so long to get involved after how poorly the Galaxy/MLS handled his arrival and injury in the first season. Not they did much better, obviously.

    In my eyes the story here is how owners/management’s cynically motivated and inept decisions impacted the team, and continue to do so, not how the two players reacted.


  • Paul from the AZ

    Happy Indpendence Day Becks, now go back across the pond so you can lead England to another World Cup penalty shoot out loss. I have work to do here in the States.


  • jake


    I specifically asked for a mocha latte!!

    you are worthless bloody sod landy


  • Robert

    Caption Aside: Wow, LD has beefed up considerably since that picture. Impressed.


  • kjk_40b

    LD: (looking at the ground) I think you need to know, your tramp of a wife has been hitting on the entire team, and Alexi of course.

    DB: (disgusted) Yeah, well… You’re wife can’t act!


  • oranjepalooza

    OK, let me get this correct. I was able to captain England’s National side but you have a problem with me wearing the arm band for the Galaxy? Are you kidding me?


  • Never First

    Beckham: “LLeyton, your comments about me were out of line. I never forgot about you or the rest of the Galaxy while I was away.”

    Donovan: “My name is Landon.”


  • Heffe

    Beckham: Landycakes…I told you not to tell everybody the truth about us!!


  • Todd

    LD: David can I have some water?

    DB: What do you say first?

    LD: Please

    DB: And…

    LD: Sorry

    DB: And…

    LD: And your the captain! Alright i said it, give me some water now!


  • Manuel

    We has season tickets for the Galaxy last year and we did’t not renew them. Beckham is a failure for the USA. Let him go back to Europe, Donovan is a good player…and he is brings more to the game. We are burning Beckham stuff…..he is a looser in my eyes.
