Three Word Wednesday CXLIX

Written for 3WW CXLIX
The words this week are
Accentuate, glamour, and pitch.

Here's mine:

DAVID BECKHAM
In his heyday he was arguably the best passer of the ball.
He was able to accentuate the glamour on and off the pitch.
But with all that money, how could he remain hungry enough to score?

  1. You raise an important point here - if, that is, one CAN have an important point concerning Beckham :-)

  2. Love the dramatic power of that word "hungry"! Very neat piece of writing with lots of innuendos!

  4. I love the alliteration - B is for Beckham, beer, brawls...they go together nicely.

  5. This was a very clever take on the words...it does seem that Beckham's celebrity status has overwhelmed his reputation as a serious athlete.

  6. I don't even follow soccer/football, and even I know about Beckingham's lackluster performance!

    Great 3WW!

  7. I have never seen him play but I have seen a lot of photos of him.
    I like the "sandwich" interesting using B words I think they tie it all together.

  8. The American Sandwich - hungry works so well - great choice of words in here and the NaiSaiKu is cleverly done - the age old question of how hungry is hungry.

  9. I'm not much into sports stars, but I like your points and I enjoy the clever jumble of words in the "sandwich" poem. Nicely done!

  16. I'm new to this form but enjoyed your alliterative piece even though I had no idea WHO David Beckham was until I arrived here. Although it's Sunday (rather than Tuesday) I did give NaiSaiKu a try just now at Small Reflections and HOPE I did it right ;--)
    Hugs and blessings,

  17. I just loved the last line
    "But with all that money, how could he remain hungry enough to score?"
