Well Suited: Samuel Eto’o & Filippo Inzaghi At The Gran Prix Della Pubblicita

Clarence Seedorf: Dubbed A Dutch Knight


AC Milan’s Clarence Seedorf gave the biggest grin without gums after being appointed Knight in the Order of Orange-Nassau by the Netherlands ambassador to Italy in Rome, 28th April 2011. He’s got every right to be giddy, now that he’s in good, chivalrous company with Edwin Van Der Sar and Giovanni van Bronckhorst (the only other Dutch footballers to have received the honour).

Bologna FC captain, Marco Di Vaio, was honoured at the Nettuno d’Oro award ceremony this past Monday with a piece of hardware fit for someone who doesn’t meet theme parks’ roller coaster height requirements.

Much like the rude arse Yetis placed outside our favourite nightclubs whose sole purpose in life is to push us away from guest list queue towards the one full of peasants, footballers’ fashion choices often act in a similar, aggressive shoving manner to our senses.

Wow, that was one random nonsensical comparative statement but never mind.  Let’s take a look at what went down at the The Oscar Del Calcio AIC 2010, shall we? READ MORE

Sporty Personalities: Beckham, Fabregas & Walcott


Look how they’re all studiously avoiding a glimpse of his hair! It’s not just us, y’know…

Outside of the UK, it’s a little known fact that British people are prohibited from commencing their celebration of the festive period until the winner of the BBC Sports Personality of the Year has been announced.

Fortunately, the awards ceremony (featuring the cream of the country’s sporting talent) took place on Sunday evening, and the nation can breathe a sigh of relief . It’s time to indulge in any faintly amusing habits of wrestling over last minute gift ideas in Poundland and/or crashing into each others ill-equipped vehicles in two inches of snow.
