Hope everyone has recovered from the madness that was this weekend! We personally are in serious need of some vitamins after seeing so many cramped legs, wet hair-dos, bloody body parts and yellow cards. Lest we forget a few curious ‘transfer’ rumours, too.

MLS seattle 2012 goal scorerLadies and gents, we present to you the pecs, abs and lips partly responsible for powering this year’s MLS Goal of the Year. For the unfamiliar, these finely toned (don’t forget pouty and plump) body parts belong to Patrick Ianni of the Seattle Sounders.

So to recap: an award winning ‘baller who is as tall as his happy trail is long?

Yeah, we’ll drink to that.

Here’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Eric Cantona, Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Edwin van der Sar cheesing for the red carpet cameras at the Sir Alex Ferguson statue unveiling in Manchester on Friday. Don’t they look fantastico?

When a group of aging footballers can multi-task at this level (standing upright, rocking semi-formal attire, demonstrating obedience, etc) we swoon. We truly do.

Style Stars: Sylvie van der Vaart & Yolanthe Sneijder-Cabau

Beau Monde, a Dutch mag, held their annual style awards this week and it should come as no surprise that two of our favourite Dutch WAGs were recognized. Sylvie, in a dress by Jay Ahr and Jimmy Choo heels, won the Style Award and Yolanthe won the Cover Award. We assume that means she had the best cover of the year.

Said cover is to the left. Apparently the Photoshoppers thought erasing half of her waist was a good idea. It looks painful. Her hair is wider than her body. We’re calling Photoshop fail on this one.

Anywho, both ladies looked appropriately coiffed on the night and made sure the makers of eyeliner wouldn’t be going out of business any time soon. Congrats on all feats!

Last night Monte Carlo played played host to the GoldenFoot 2012 awards, which were full of sexy-ass big, tall and weathy men who like to date hoochies. Damn it, what we wouldn’t have done to have been there.

Random: we’re currently blogging on the fly and using a laptop with a screen the size of an eyeshadow compact. Dear readers, can any of you click, zoom and confirm what exactly was happening with Zlatan’s hair? Was it…a messy bun? A snooze alarm that was slept through? An elastic that’s been stretched to the point of no return? Needless to say, he added in a cheesy hitch hiking “thumbs up!“ for the full dork-chic effect last night.

Note: we recognise that we may need to consult with a therapist to work through why this is actually a matter of importance to us. We’re do not need to be reminded, thank you.
