While pictures of sports celebrities as kids abound in cyberspace, video footage of the stars is harder to come by. Much harder.
What might be the reason for that? Well, for one, videos offer up a lot more potential for embarrassment. They unmask, revealing our heroes in the raw—as they were before they found their cool, before they were comfortable in front of a camera, before they knew how to flash a celebrity smile, before their voices stopped cracking.
Before little Davie Beckham (pictured) became D-Beck.
Time to bring the elusive footage forth, I say. Time to let the public revel in the prepubescent awkwardness of its heroes.
