Becks is adding his golden signature to the black marker. Not that he is in a hurry these days to get around anyone on the field but apparently he is up for more autographs. Sharpie has signed Becks to its global campaign to become the pen of choice for the famed. The permanent marker scores - maybe it will rub off on Becks' weak goal tally. But like all pens, it runs dry. When a Sharpie dies, and these days leaving the cap off for more than five minutes can be fatal for its future, a cry of “Damn and Blast” is likely followed up by a Sharpie throw at the trash can that usually misses, like much of Becks’ free-kicks these days. More stains on the landfill.
