We met a man carrying a “Huge Ass Beers” sign over the weekend, Kickettes.

He was a lot of fun.

This is not a picture of him but we’ll explain why not in a sec.

George Lucas didn’t spend billions of dollars on laser beam technology for Star Wars on a whim, y’know. The man knew that exciting zappy type things are appealing to most boys (and the occasional Kickette staffer), and when Nike released their new NT kits last month, they proved that 35 years has not dented the laser’s appeal in the slightest.

But how to reach the new demographic of football – the visually stimulated, slightly pervy demographic that make up the majority of our readership? It isn’t as though we don’t tell everyone on an hourly basis, but we’re still supremely gratified to see that with their latest tranche of NT kits, they’ve taken our comments on board and focused on the crotch.

David Villa: Hot ‘Baller Presents Bronzed Book Cover

Earlier today David Villa presented the eighth edition of the book ”Relatos Solidarios” – a compilation of short stories written by 42 journos with Villa contributing as well. The book was dedicated to Dani Montesinos, a journalist who tragically died in an accident but was represented in spirit by his parents, widow and brother (L-R, above) at Thursday’s launch. This year, all book proceeds will be put towards building a leisure space for teens at the Hospital de Sant Joan de Deu.

Whew. That was a lot of “real” reporting work right there, regardless of whether or not it was translated properly (it probably wasn’t – our fact checker’s out sick today).

As a reward to ourselves, we’re putting up our out of office messages so we can sit back and enjoy that sassy soul patch of Dah-veed’s for the next 30 minutes without interruption. We highly recommend you do the same, Kickettes.

Everyone keeps telling us that this video was made to launch Chelsea’s exciting new adidas home strip, which goes on sale on 10th May.

Honestly? We cannot fathom how anybody is supposed to concentrate on a bit of gold piping when this lot are posing their little hearts out.

And they say women are difficult to understand.
