Guest commentary by Melissa Noble today:
“The February 1, 2010 cover of The New Yorker had Obama at hello. According to editor-in-chief David Remnick, Obama was so charmed by the image of himself walking and then falling into water that he requested an autographed copy.
The cover was meant to portray Obama’s rocky path to healthcare reform. Remnick told CNN’s Howard Kurtz:
“I think Axelrod and Obama were laughing hysterically over this cover. And the fact to their credit, within a matter of weeks, that they reversed the really sinking trend that they were experiencing, and they passed health care. And the White House certainly reversed its downward trend pretty quickly after that cover. I’m not saying the cover was anywhere near responsible for it.”~Melissa Noble.
[Subtext: After walking the perilous political sea of healthcare reform, Obama fell into a hole in the sea, just before oil spurted up from it via B.P. Right?] A little uncanny for comfort. Hot cover.

While appearing on the Late Show with David Letterman, David Beckham brought this gruesome photograph of achilles tendon surgery. He also talked about his love of playing for the LA Galaxy until his soccer contract ends, and he puts a spotlight on the Soccer World Cup where Beckham will take the field for England. The Soccer World Cup precedes the Rugby World Cup as we enter a golden year of blokes and sports at World Sporting events. Get to both if you can.

Tom Brady and David Beckham were sighted taking their sons, Brookyln, Romeo, Cruz and John Edward Thomas “JET” Moynahan to the UCLA football game at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA –Saturday, April 24.
Young JET is a little sport, to roll out with those tough Beckham lads. Good to see Sports leaders make family their priority. Nice one.

David Beckham may be nursing a soccer injury, but he still has time to take his two sons to Pinkberry for a father-son day out. A nice message to send from this sports megastar, that if you have children, that they are more important than sports, money, your own misfortunes/ injuries or the fame.

Alex Meraz, Rihanna, David Beckham and Adam Lambert all have mohawks right now. Perhaps the return of the Mohawk is in part due to the casting of Alex Meraz and the Native American Indian lads of Stephenie Meyer‘s Twilight Saga’s New Moon.
Rihanna felt the New Moon vibe and incorporated a modern haute take on the Mohawk with her comeback journey and Rated R album. Soccer great David Beckham followed Rihanna’s lead in support of the singer’s comeback and youngster Adam Lambert, stole it, alongwith Rihanna’s love of spikey things too at the moment.
Regardless of who started it and who is generating the trend, it belongs to Native American Indians and is a distinctly American look. The USA is a mohawk nation right now who is on the war path. Kinda fierce really. Attitude for Africa!

In LA, the family thing only happens unless you make it happen. Tom Cruise took his kids Connor and Isabella to watch the LA Galaxies play a bit of soccer, Sunday in LA.
Victoria Beckham looks stoked to have a buddy to hang out with while her kids are at foot watching David kick a ball around.
Always the showman, Becks demonstrated the art of heckler-confrontation and what to do in that situation. Nada. Hecklers are always a part of European soccer matches, so it’s actually a good thing, we have soccer hecklers in LA.
