As you can see by this rather stacked manpile, the Real Salt Lake boys are happy. They won the MLS Cup, beating the LA Galaxy 5-4 in a penalty shootout. (Congrats RSL!)
Let’s take a moment to talk about the penalties, shall we? There’s always gotta be someone. The fans know it. The players know it. So, Landon Donovan: you’re in the club now. We’re wondering if after the whole yakking it up to the Beckham book writer thing and then missing a penalty in the finals resulted in a brief moment of eye contact in the dressing room between Becks and Landon. Eye contact that says, “Karma, dude. It’s a beyatch.”
We’d also like to have been a fly on the wall in the Wigan dressing room after they lost 9-1 to Tottenham this weekend. Mercy. It’s like a cricket score.
Kudos to Jermain Defoe who has shaken off his man-whoreness and is looking amazing on the pitch right now.
How was the weekend for you? Did your boys give you the result you were after?
It’s a velvet waistcoat. Over a tight, white long-sleeved collarless shirt. We just want to know why.
Steven Gerrard does some shopping with a mate in Manchester city centre. He’s looking at the giant, “Call us! xox” billboard we had put up for the occasion.
Tottenham’s Carlo Cudicini has two fractured wrists and suspected broken pelvis after a motorcycle crash in North London. Ugh.

Why the hell don’t football teams/players do this kind of artistic calendar collaboration?
Gary Neville piles on proof of our footballer baby rule: all children bequeathed from footballing loins will be beautiful.
Franck Ribery holds a pose, goofs off in a shop window.
We beg to differ with Cristiano. Iker couldn’t possibly tell boring stories.

Helen Svedin (Figo’s wifey) looks gorgeous; shills jewelery for at Chamilla’s new collection at the Santo Mauro Hotel in Madrid.
Becks trims his beard, takes off his shirt. Son Cruz continues his reign of family superstar.
Want a kiss from Gerard Pique? Just ask for it (on a cardboard sign) and you shall receive.
Prioritizing minty fresh breath is an admirable trait.
A quick run down of John Terry’s weekend?

Also: How hard can it possibly be to score a photo of Frank Lampard with his rumoured new gal Christine? Yeesh. London paps what’s up?
Nemanja Vidic’s new ads for Puma: sexy or scary? Or (as we like it), both? Or, do you prefer Gigi Buffon’s version?
Cristiano Ronaldo says his move to Real was like getting a new girlfriend. Um?

The Real Madrid boys were out yesterday afternoon frolicking in the snow with their new Audis and making nice for the press call.
After the flash bulbs took a breather, the team was given instructions on how to drive in the snow. Incredible. Who knew that it snowed in Madrid? We need to do some swotting up on our world weather forecasts.
But let’s not get hung up on details. Except for this one: Kaka got his car stuck in a snow bank.
Aside from Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema working the over-the-shoulder gangsta snow pose, other boys on show included:
Sergio Ramos looking at ease with new and shiny things; Royston Drenthe looking relaxed and Guti looking for his hair straighteners.
