Two weeks ago when a co-worker from England overheard that I was looking for a video to help my son get better at soccer, he asked me if I wanted to teach him to "bend it like beckham"? I had to admit that I had no idea what he was talking about. Last week he brought a DVD called "Really Bend It Like Beckham" to me, and I still only thought he resembled some young actor I had seen on Entertainment Tonight. But this past weekend, my son and i sat down to watch it and were amazed. Sure, it was hard to get him to sit in one place and watch what probably sounded like a boring, one-hour coaching video, but once it began were we both enthralled. This is normally the kind of thing that I might put on, make sure he was watching, and do the crossword, but it was presented in such a fresh and fun way with cool, easy to follow technological effects, that I stuck around to watch the entire thing. It definitely renewed my son's interest in the sport (after a long spring of practices already) and even made me get excited about helping teach him (which is saying something). If nothing else, "Really Bend It Like Beckham" succeeds in entertaining while it teaches, unlike every other coaching video out there. From here on out, we (and I must admit, my wife too) are big-time Beckham fans.
