Alvaro Negredo & Clara Tapía: Just Married


Congrats to Sevilla striker and Spanish international, Alvaro Negredo, who took advantage of the winter holidays to wed his girlfriend Clara Tapia at the El Salvador church in Sevilla. The bride looked beautiful in her dress with a gorgeous lace veil and the groom looked incredibly hot, which is really unfair since he’s officially off the market.

Alvaro Negredo with his mom on his wedding day in SevillaSevilla hometown boy The Ramos was among the family, friends and teammates in attendance, and if anyone has a picture please send it over so we can see what he wore.

We’ve come to find that the Sevilla boys have a flair for the dramatic when it comes to their wedding videos. Following in teammate Jesus Navas’ footsteps, the couple hired the same company to film their nuptials and you can watch it here.

Seasons Greetings: Happy New Year From Us To You

We thought long and hard about how to thank our faithful band of soldier boys and girls for their support this year. Among the management proposals vetoed by the staff were:

  1. Spending the money set aside for the party season bar bills/lawyers fees on a couture outfit for each and every one of you, with the balance to be contributed towards the search for Fernando Torres’ mojo.
  2. A party at Kickette Island to which you would all be invited.
  3. A fly-on-the-wall documentary about the Kickette office, our staff and how we work. It would probably directed by Nick Broomfield, who we recently learned is good at handling ‘difficult’ women.

However, this year we learned that we’re more alcohol dependant, selfish and concerned about people finding out what we actually do all day than we thought. The upshot is, your gift is the above picture of Sergio Ramos, shirtless from Real Madrid’s recent Copa Del Rey match.

His hotness is about the only thing we all agree on.
