Is there any better honor than being covered in green slime by Nickelodeon? Surprisingly there is: golden slime. David Beckham and family received the highest honor during the Kids' Choice Sports Awards on Thursday night.

While accepting the Legend Award, Beckham and his two sons, Romeo and Cruz, were recipients of a terrific sliming.

Ever the coolest cat in the room, Beckham responded gracefully. From ESPN FC:

"When I was young, my dream was to be a professional soccer player," he said.

"If you have dreams and you believe in yourself, your dreams can come true.

"Thank you very much."
