Went to Germany, Held Beckham's Hand.

Yesterday I had done the worst job in the world that has anything to do with football. Today I have something of the opposite.

The kids who accompany the players out onto the field just prior to the game -- where do they get them from? Because they're a pretty lucky bunch, if you ask me! Ten years old and you get to escort your favorite footballer out onto the pitch! That's the equivalent of a high school kid getting to take Paris Hilton to the prom.

It's like the ball boys and girls at Wimbledon. Except you remove all the hard work of running around gathering balls and you add the extra exciting aspect of the escorting, and then you realize just how much better this actually is!

I've only noticed boys among the kids and no girls. This could possibly be because I haven't seen too many games thus far. But I'd be really surprised if there were no girls involved in this at all. And before you start to yell out about how girls aren't really interested in sports, just think about all the preteen girls you know who would half kill to get to hold David Beckham's hand.
