The Friday Fit: Fredy Montero, Seattle Sounders


Oh ickle Fweddy, did you get covered in the muddy mud? Don’t worry, we’ll get you all nice and snuggly clean again. Have no fear, our entire staff will just be approaching quietly and in a loose pincer formation, brandishing soap, sponges and a large bag of jellybeans. Image via Sounders FC.com. Thanks K!

Chris Pontius: Is He The Wolf Or The Goat?

Sometimes a hectic workweek at Kickette HQ results in us needing to find photos that tell a story for us. (See earlier post on Yoann Gourcuff’s posterior.)

Continuing on in this motif of half-assed posting, here’s a shot of D.C. United’s Chris Pontius modeling one of our favourite camera angles for the Wolf vs Goat catalogue.

In The Stands: Thierry Henry & Tony Parker

Would You: Omar Gonzalez, L.A. Galaxy

Since our one-way ticket to ‘Cougar Town’ has yet to expire, we’d like to get your thoughts on Omar Gonzalez, Kickettes. The L.A. Galaxy defender made his debut for the USMNT in their friendly against Brazil last night, and he is giving us the feelings. All 6’5″ of him.

He would appear to have some skills too: Omar was named MLS Rookie of the Year in 2009 and also played in the recent MLS All-Star game. Well done, you.

Ever the faithful Kickette servant, yesterday Brazil’s Alexandre Pato made sure to lift up Omar’s jersey just enough to give us a torso preview (left).  Good work Pato, your muffin basket is in the post.

Obviously, someone will have to have a stern word with Omar about those anger-making, thigh-hiding compression shorts, but all in good time. At only 21 he’s got plenty of time to learn and concede to what we find acceptable in the game.

You likey? Anything else we should know about Mr. Gonzalez, Galaxy Girls?
