AS MUCH fun as it is to watch elite athletes perform gracefully, it can sometimes be just as fun to watch them flounder. That's part of the charm of a pair of Adidas clips featuring Reggie Bush and David Beckham meeting for the first time and giving each other tips on their respective brands of football. (It's on YouTube as Beckham meets Bush—there's a six-minute version and a three-minute version with different takes.) Bush, who apparently doesn't spend much time hanging with placekickers, is clueless about which part of his foot to kick a ball with and needs Beckham's help to tie his soccer cleats. And as good as he is with his feet, Beckham proves to be awful with his arm. After Beckham's first pass attempt, Bush asks very sincerely, "You righthanded?" They take things seriously, and eventually they figure it out: Bush juggles a ball a few times, and Beckham, wearing full pads, jukes past Bush and catches a TD pass. As they leave, it's clear they've each learned a thing or two. Says Bush, "I've got a newfound respect for soccer."
