Cristiano Ronaldo = we like.
Louis Vuitton = we love.
Put them together and it’s a good day.

His sidekick in the background = we do not know, we do not care to speculate.

Sidekick has his own admirers, however: Cristiano Out For A Little Shopping

Beware the Angry Ginger

Comments Off

Paul Scholes of Man U is in a spot of bother after calling a referee a “poofter” when he received a yellow card.

He’s being pressured to apologize by gay rights activitists who are urging disciplinary action – giving the example that if he had said something racist, he would be instantly punished.

We’re thinking spouting off like this was not a wise move for Mr. Scholes, who already has enough going against him.

You know, being a ginger minger* and all.

Bad red-headed step-child. Bad, bad ginger!

*for our North American readers, that’s pronounced with a hard ‘g’ sound: “ghin-gher min-gher” and is an insult that can usually be thrown around freely with very little recourse. Go on, try it now, you’ll feel great afterwards.

Extracurricular Activities: Freddie Ljungberg

Comments Off

This report says Freddie Ljungberg is moving on from Calvin Klein underwear modeling to become a more “statesmanlike” representative for Arsenal.

What is this world coming to when such drivel, lies and drivelous lies will be tolerated in the press? Being paid to flex your abs in your skivvies is honorable and taxing work, something that should be taken up by more members of the Premier League, not less.

Idle threat: The day Freddie hangs up his CK undies will be the day Kickette starts buying from Fruit of the Loom. And dear readers, you do not want that day to come in your lifetime.

As we mentioned last week, the ish is goin’ down, and tonight was the night the BBC made their big reveal about who’s been naughty and who’s been nice. Unfortunately, no information was given on why a word like “bung” had to ever be created and/or spoken. It just sounds wrong.

Materazzi Makes It Official

Comments Off

After slagging off Zinedine’s sister and getting a WWF style head butt in return, Marco Materazzi has formally apologized. 

Not to Zizou, but to his sister.  We’re not sure how exactly he did this (flowers? a card? perhaps he baked her some delicious bread), but he’s so serious about making it up, that he has invited Z to his home so they can work out their differences.

Fifa president Sepp Blatter has made it clear he wants the two to reconcile.

Earlier this week Materazzi revealed what he had said to Zizou: “I was tugging his shirt, he said to me ‘if you want my shirt so much I’ll give it to you afterwards,‘ and I answered that I’d prefer his sister.“
