Calling all Kickette Soldier-Girls


We know, we know, self-promotion is so totally WAG-like, but we cannot help the gauche on this occasion.

Kickette has been nominated for the Best UK Blog in the 2007 Weblog Awards. 

Dear readers, please put down your nail files, chocolate covered strawberries and/or the hair clip you were using to break into the house of your favourite baller and click over to vote for us to win this mofo.

This is serious, Kickettes.  Look at Victoria Beckham’s face. This is even more serious than her facial expression; more serious than the fact that this image/video is being used as promotion for the Spice Girls concerts or albums or underwear or something and – hello? – we certainly hope to God this isn’t the campaign for the under 16s.

We’re currently losing to a whole range of other nominees who we are quite certain would not be able to identify Elen Rives from 50 paces.  Do you want these sorts of folks taking the trophy? They probably don’t even own a pair of hair-straighteners.

We thank you in advance for your clicking power.  Voting is open until Nov 8, so please make it part of your daily routine.

    I just voted. I hope you gals win, your blog always makes me laugh out loud. It’s joyous stuff. But what makes the blog are some of the comments from your visitors.

    My loyalties lie with the ladies that know their ‘ballers .. and their WAGs .. and their fashion disasters.

    (Though I can’t think that video of Victoria is any worse than the numerous Britney Spears dancing on a pole, etc videos that are out there.)
