Beckham

But as he emerges to deafening squeals, worries are put to rest. His speech is no longer than 25 seconds. I've heard longer grocery store price checks. What follows isn't the entirety, but it's pretty close: "Thank you for coming. ... This is my first time in San Francisco. ... It's a beautiful day. ... Thank you for coming."

Mekdi Admassu, Fija Reed and Natalie Wolfrom, all 18 and from San Francisco, lean over the fence that separates the people who bought $200 worth of underwear from the people who didn't. They're a bit disappointed in the long wait and the short speech, but not with the man.

"He's hot," Wolfrom says. "Really, really hot."
