Mario Balotelli: Iced Out


Kickettes, thoughts on the “other” Balotelli news this week? Image: Getty Images.

Notice Mario Balotelli wears not one, not two, but three diamonds in his ears. Large ones, that sparkle and shine when held up to our jewellery appraising expert eye.

As footy fans like yourselves know, the fun is mainly in the details.

Exhibit A: David Beckham admitting he has a fetish for snacking on that cutie patootie baby sundae of his. Harper does have a scrum-diddly-umptious set of chubby wubby legs, doesn’t she?

And as you lot can probably vouch, often it’s the tiniest, most obscure facts or photos that forever settle themselves into your brains – unintentionally or not.

Exhibit B: the length and width of Mesut Ozil’s “sideburns.”

Zlatan Ibrahimovic: Premature Aging & Posh Preparations

Isn’t it about time some beauty guru/company created a miracle eye potion that truly erases the visible signs of aging (i.e. under eye bags and crow’s feet)? We plan on carting around some serious Zlatan-esque demarcations this weekend, so ideally this would happen sooner rather than later.

In Ibra’s case, let’s hope the VIP hotel super suite that Sweden specifically arranged for him and four other players (while the rest of its squad suffers in lower tier “common rooms”) comes complete with soft, non-skin tugging satin sheets.

Car services and elite access airport lounges worldwide had a busier Monday than normal it seems, Kickettes.
