Michael Strahan had his lovely daughters Sofia and Isabella join him on stage at one point, and then run into the crowd to get David Beckham’s autograph.

The first ever Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports Awards just concluded, hosted by former football player Michael Strahan, and it was a home run! Held at UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles, there were 20,000 gallons of green slime stored up for the lucky winners.

Special guests included Seahawks safety Earl Thomas, Arizona Cardinals player Larry Fitzgerald, Dallas Maverick center Tyson Chandler, and soccer superstar David Beckham, who brought his kids Romeo and Cruz. Beckham and his children were given the royal treatment, when they got doused with golden slime. So, without further ado, who beat out the competition?
