Jason:  Wherever soccer superstar David Beckham goes, there is a buzz. A buzz is a feeling of excitement.

Jason:  But it’s not just the fans who get a buzz. Beckham feels it too.

Reporter:  A lot of people who aren’t even really into soccer, when they hear David Beckham’s in town, that means a lot to them. Do you still enjoy that and do you thrive off of that coming into a place like this?

Beckham:  It’s great. It’s what gives me a buzz. It’s one of the reasons why I’m still playing the game that I love and I’ve played for many years, because I love going into stadiums and them being a full, packed house and getting that atmosphere. I feel like 36 years old, I still love the game and love playing the game, and I love training the way I did when I was 21 years old. So until that changes, I’ll continue to play. But it’s great turning up to stadiums, coming into new cities and seeing the atmosphere there.

Jason:  David Beckham says that coming to new cities is exciting for him. It gives him a buzz.

Beckham:  It’s great. It’s what gives me a buzz.

Jason:  Perhaps this passion for playing on the road has helped him become such a great player.

Beckham:  Whatever game I’m involved in, I’m gonna give 110% wherever I’m playing, whatever league I’m playing in, whatever team I’m playing for.

Fan:  I love Beckham!

When I have to plan a trip or when I take a plane, those always give me a buzz.


Also when I am eating some delicious chocolate or when I am about to finish a book that is very interesting also makes me feel happy. These situations also give me a buzz.


I can say it’s a great felling, I like feeling it!
