Beckham to be on Sesame Street


Get your Tivo and DVR ready, the English soccer superstar David Beckham has filmed an episode of Sesame Street! The air date is unknown to this point, but keep an eye out.

Safe to say, this is ground-breaking stuff for the MLS. Who knew an American soccer player could accomplish so much?
A source said: "David has always been a huge fan of the show. When he was a kid he watched it and was more than happy to go on.
The story says Beckham's word of the day was "persistence," which he'll present with Elmo -- clearly the hooligan of the cast. One might think it's Oscar, but that grouch is clearly a Liverpool fan.

I have a feeling his persistence speech is going to look and sound a lot like this commercial.

Tough to anticipate what else will be on the show, but I imagine he'll steal a couple glances from Bert and Ernie. Maybe kick the ball around with Big Bird, who I hear has a wicked left foot.

Should be fun!
