Weekend Results: Clothing Removal Scorecard



There were some pretty intense matches this weekend – none of which we watched. (Don’t ask.) But instead of being Negative Nellies about the whole thing, we’re going to focus on ‘ballers in their birthday suits. It’s our go-to happy place.

Also handy for cheering us up: judging those that are naked. Our score card (including Mr. De Rossi) is below. Hope the weekend results were as good for you as they were for Ab-Rollers and white cotton.

Dimitar Berbatov and his long, strong swordFeeling nervy about the World Cup draw today? We’re on our second manicure and third tequila shot. The only thing calming our nerves and giving us pleasure is this photo of Dimitar Berbatov winning Bulgaria’s Man Of The Year.

Speaking of the WC draw, conspiracy theories abound.

Champions League Results: Shirtless, Mostly



And the Champions League group stage action rolls on.

Of course, we could talk about Liverpool. Or Inter’s loss to Barca. Or even Andrey Arshavin’s very red head.

But that would only be taking attention away from the real story: the high level of players stripping off post-game. And that would be wrong of us.

We give you: John Terry (Chelsea), Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo (natch), Manchester United’s Kiko Macheda, Mario Gomez (Bayern Munich) and Gerard Pique (Barcelona). Honorable mention goes to Chelsea’s Nico Anelka for looking damn fine in those cursed, evil, wretched base layers.

Chew On This: The Thanksgiving Thigh Off


Gobble, gobble!Call it a coincidence or call it fate – US Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday… just in time for a thigh-off. How thightastic!

FYI, some of us at Kickette HQ are weirdly obsessed with seeing John Terry and Carlos Bocanegra dressed as pilgrims. But let’s leave our freaky fantasy lives out of this.

To our loyal Kickettes around the world, don’t fret about missing this holiday date*. We all have thighs to be thankful for regardless of whether or not one partakes in the food-coma-inducing fiesta del face-stuffing. And as we all know, thighs are truly an appropriate and appreciated treat for every day of the year.

So throw on your best Marchesa feathers or Fendi buckle belts and cleanse your palettes, it’s turkey time! (Well, it will be tomorrow, but we’re doing this a day early as we’ve been informed of the mass exodus that occurs on the official date.)

Note: Don’t expect us to teach you how to brine a bird. We’re only here to offer our expert man-eating advice on which cuts of thigh are worthy of your Tiffany’s flatware.
