katie-holmes-first-david-beckham-game.jpgIT was the untapped market waiting to be prized open. But now David Beckham promises to conquer it. Laydees’n’gentalmen, we give you’re the Beckham shoelace. No, not Victoria Beckham. This is String‘Ems.

The Mail looks on as Beckham takes to the pitch for his LA Galaxy debut. Resplendent in box-fresh white shirt, shorts and socks, all with canary yellow trim and lacy blue piping, Beckham makes ready to unveil his new trick.

It is 78 minutes into the game. The crowd at the Home Depot Centre, a 27,000 full–house of which at least a dozen are not journalists or celebrities, have been softened up by Chelsea, good living and hype.

Beckham is on the pitch for 12 minutes. He touches the ball ten times. He makes one tackle, says the Times. The Mail spots 16 minutes and 19 seconds of play and 12 touches.

“It has been amazing,” says David in the Express (“It’s Hollywood united”). “It was nice to get out there and kick a soccer ball again.”

But it is not yet sensational. Before that, Beckham has to show us something new. The Mail looks on as Beckham bends over. Using a trademarked combination of right and left hand, Becks ties his shoelaces.

The Mail hears a “wild cheer of relief”. Longoria, Schwarzenegger, Winstone, Holmes and Cruise are wowed. Brooklyn grins at Suri. Suri looks deep into her eyes. What is she thinking? Tell us.

And the crowd go home with joy in their hearts and an urge to buy the String’Em – works with boots and shoes. Use it as a hair band. Also available in red for Kabbalah enthusiasts.

Go Beckham! Get them while he’s still hot…
