Sad David Beckham News Takes the Sexy Out of the Summer Olympics (VIDEO)

David BeckhamIt's a disappointing day for soccer fans, as it was announced that David Beckham did not make the British Olympic soccer team, and won't be competing in the games in London. Three players older than the age of 23 were selected to be a part of the team, but somehow 37-year-old Beckham didn't quite make the cut. (What the heck is up with that?)

In a very classy move, David is taking the snub in stride and said, "Everyone knows how much playing for my country has always meant to me, so I would have been honored to have been part of this unique Team GB squad. Naturally I am very disappointed, but there will be no bigger supporter of the team than me. And like everyone, I will be hoping they can win the gold."


Aww! Don't you just love this dude? (I mean because he's such a genuine guy, not because he's the sexiest man who ever walked the face of the earth.)

Beckham will definitely be missed by fans who love cheering him on, and also by the women who just can't resist watching him run up and down the field -- and possibly removing his shirt at the end of the game. I mean, it can be tough for some of us to really get into the Olympics, and the eye candy factor certainly helps.

But to help ease our broken hearts as we contemplate watching a David Beckham-free soccer game -- we always have his underwear ad to fall back on.
