Big Shots for December 2, 2010

It seems there isn't a tailor in the entire world who can sew a jersey capable of staying on David Beckham's svelte torso. It's the tattoos. They stress the fabric until it spontaneously peels away from his skin. One wonders why he bothers dressing for games at all. Away from the pitch, this week saw the Asian Games in Guangzhou conclude, meaning that I'll have thousands fewer sports pictures to sift through to produce this blog. But if you're worried that I won't find enough amazing images for this post, well, keep your shirt on. ( 29 photos total)
