While we were off collectively losing our minds (and wallets), Christian Vieri and his anonymous lady friend were scootin’ and tootin’ around Miami Beach. Wonder if he and Pato trade dating secrets or something because Melissa Satta’s ex (a frequent habitué of SoBe) always pulls the pretty birds.
Unidentified lady friend’s windblown waves: do you like or lurve? Not that we’re judging her already or anything.

Usually we lean towards a ‘multitasking’ approach to the weekend matches; the tendency towards exhibition football by the bigger clubs allowing us to freely surf for handbags whilst keeping half an eye on the games.
Not to worry, though. We’ve compiled a short montage of this past’s key moments for our beloved Kickettes today.
And by key moments, we mean gratuitous shots of men focused on doing their jobs as professional athletes that we have turned into cheap, tawdry moments of objectification for our own amusement.
Reports insist Roma’s Federico Balzaretti is in a race against his fitness so he can face former club Palermo this weekend. Federico’s hair, while we don’t understand it, is quite endearing. And weird. But more endearing than weird.
From what we’ve seen of Italian footy’s wives and girlfriends, they’re just normal girls doing their best to support their husbands and boyfriends. Case in point Mrs Balzaretti, Eleonora Abbagnato, who’s helping her man’s strained thigh heal by forcing them to accompany her at the shops.
Well done her.
