GODS OF CALCIO: David Beckham of AC Milan, Serie A

We've all seen Beckham before in his Armani briefs, his photographically enhanced bulge displayed all over the world. How would that compare with the sweat-drenched briefs we saw last Sunday in Turin when he changed shorts during the AC Milan-Juventus match? Somehow the antiseptic Armani photograph lacks the punch of the Turin photo. Raw, primeval, you could almost smell the testosterone in the latter. Attributes usually missing when overly-contrived fashion pretensions intrude too much into the essence of the sport photograph (we remember here Tony Duran's Dieux du Stade 2010 photos). What makes sportsmen sexy? You don't think of the answer, you can FEEL it as you look at the photo of Beckham changing shorts in Turin.
