style files: thierry henry


American designer Tommy Hilfiger held a launch party for the opening of his flagship shop in Paris, and wouldn’t ya know it, the fabulous Mr. Henry showed up and stole the show.

Looking dapper in a pinstripe suit, Theirry dropped a little insider info: he’s going to be working with the Hilf for a project in the future. What that project might be, we have no clue. We’re guessing something with an accent. And possibly a Renault.

The launch was full of A-List-ish types, from Lenny Kravitz, Lindsay Lohan, Kate Bosworth and Virginie Ledoyen (pictured with T, above).

Rooney Gets Physical

Comments Off

After watching this video of Wayne Rooney in a onesie hitting a punching bag and beating down a pinata, we found ourselves strangely attracted to him.

And the masculine yet sensitive way he popped those balloons? Yowser.

You know we’re totally kidding right? *nervous laughter*  We could never be into him.

WTF files: england v croatia


… we’re not even going to talk about it.

Because our throats are hoarse from booing.

If, dear readers, you’re feeling some discomfort over the Paul Robinson/Gary Neville own goal fiasco, or the Steve McClaren craptastically crappy game plan, think of it this way: it’s nature’s way of proving, once again, that unattractive people can’t be trusted.

See you Thursday eve, we’re off to eat bon bons and cuddle up to our David Beckham posters.

walcott shows the oldies how it’s done

The embryonic Theo Walcott done good during the England v Germany Under 21s game, scoring twice – in what many are saying were very Thierry Henry style goals. (But without the sexy accent or the good looks.)

As was the subject of much discussion this summer, bubba Walcott was brought along for the ride to the World Cup by then England coach Sven Goran Eriksson.

So what’s the deal here? If he’s old enough to play in the big man England squad, why does he also get to play in the little man England squad too?

It’s like professional athletes competing in the Olympics, or Victoria Beckham eating food. It just doesn’t seem right.

Actually, being 17 and earning the levels of wonga Walcott is earning could also fall into the “doesn’t seem right” category. Such is the wonder of the beautiful game.

So, yeah.

We have no real point here: it’s a slow gossip day, we’re feeling old and poor and we felt the need to say something about it.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving everyone. As we’ve mentioned before, we take all possible public holidays off, and this is no exception. Don’t think Canadian Thanksgiving qualifies? We’re sure he-of-the-sometime-attractive Owen Hargreaves would disagree. He’s kinda Canadian, right?

One thing, though: thanks to the wonders of Blogger, our long list of links and witty repartee freshly prepared for Thanksgiving Day was deleted without warning/thrown out into cyberspace/etc and we sure as heck aren’t writing them again when we could spend that time pouting and trying to figure out how to use WordPress.
