The Friday Fit: Kevin de Bruyne, Werder Bremen

Michael Morganella: Embarrassed & Excluded


We’d love to tell you that Michel Morganella of Switzerland has been sent home from the Olympics for infringing the Games’ rules on crap hair.

The Infidelity Files: Mario Balotelli


Really, how many times can we pull out the thesaurus to find a different way to say “love rat” and “man whore”?  We’ve reached synonym burnout when it comes to Mario Balotelli’s love of keeping a bevy of ladies on the down low.

Over the course of the past year or so, we’ve been privy to details concerning the Man City star’s dining style, affection for fancy dress parties (dressing for them, not going to them), 12 hour private tours and hooker habits.

The latest? Throughout the last 18 months or so, MB was cheating on Raffaella Fico with that chick from the Euros. You know the rest.

San Jose Earthquakes: Wigging Out
