Ex Spice Girl has personality malfunction.
Watching Victoria Beckham at Wimbledon yesterday made you wonder why she had bothered to turn up at all.
I’m sure I can’t be the only one faintly amused by her pathetic failure to smile and the ridiculous posturing.
Whatever it is that she feels she is missing in life she needs to find it quick for if you can’t get excited by watching a classic Men’s singles final and find your mobile phone more entertaining than the drama unfolding directly in front of your eyes then you have a serious personality problem.
The spice girls were supposed to be the symbol of women living a joyous life and expressing themselves freely and the rest of the girls seem to have moved on and live fulfilling lives but for whatever reason it has all gone wrong for Posh and she is in serious danger of becoming a parody of herself with her humourless demeanour.
Hubby David was clearly enjoying himself but dragging along this devoid of life personality around the world with him must want to make you poke yourself in the eye.
Sport is about emotion.
Sport is one of the reasons why we celebrate life so enthusiastically and in one on one sporting contests like Boxing or Tennis we have the ultimate man to man, women to women confrontation.
As fans or supporters we side with the personality that most closely aligns with our own world of reality and our dreams and aspirations.
Most of us were not born with parents who had the appetite for pursuing a sporting career for their offspring or the privileged education that lets you compete in some of the more elite sports like polo or horse jumping and that is why we revere our sporting heroes.
We know the sacrifices they have made to reach the pinnacle of their chosen career.
If you were failed to be moved by the raw emotion in Andy Murray’s voice as he tried to compose himself and deliver a runners up speech in front of the Wimbledon crowd and millions watching on TV then you are not human.
When I see someone being so utterly miserable and wanting to be anywhere else but Centre Court yesterday I see someone who has lost their way in life.
Life is a celebration of all its elements. Being alive, being able to smile and being able to enjoy the battle of wills that is a sporting contest.
Contrast Victoria’s behaviour with the delightful Duchess of York who was clearly having a ball and living every point.
Likewise the prime minister who couldn’t stop himself yelling “Andy, Andy” and the even more excitable and animated Scottish minister got lost in the atmosphere.
If these great sporting events do not move you and you are so wrapped up in your own self that you cannot bring yourself to even attempt the merest hint of enjoyment then you must be dead inside.
If the allegations that David Beckham strayed from the marital bed with Rebecca Loos were true then on this performance who could blame him?
