David Beckham’s season with the LA Galaxy is over. And it was a bust. So when asked how he planned on lifting the spirits of his good friend, the GMD told reporters in London that he’d be happy to take Becks out for some good old fashioned “boy” time – flying airplanes and racing cars – and that he’ll gladly join him whenever David calls.

But of course he will.

Tom Cruise would drop anything for David Beckham. Because that’s just the kind of friend he is.

Added Tom, "I know what a competitor he is and I have great admiration for him as an athlete, as a father, and as a husband. The guy works so hard – I know personally how dedicated this guy is, and how committed."

But of course he does.

And as for that pesky issue of David’s wife – and the fact that the man is not gay - offered Tom:

"I"ll talk to Victoria and see if she"s all right with that. But we"ll have some fun."

But of course they will.

Here’s an old photo of the Beckhams and the GMD from 2004. You will note David is doing his best to emphasise his heterosexual penile leanings while Posh is doing her best to refrain from scratching her rival’s eyes out.

Never underestimate the seductive powers of an old queen, even if he lives in the church’s closet.
