We spend our working lives testing the impact of asshattery on our affections, and in the grand scheme of things, Branko Boskovic’s bitching about being picked (or not) for D.C. United is nothing more than a tiny chink in his fetching love armour. Especially since he scored in DC’s victory over Chivas USA not too long ago, which kind of proved his point.
However, this kind of thing can escalate. Right now it’s whining because he keeps getting subbed, but we can visualise the future clearly. Moaning about having to wear what we tell him to, bitching on about our ambitious credit card bills, grumbling as he drives us to our daily mani/pedi treatment in the super expensive sports car we made him buy.
Is that face worth the bother, Kickettes? Or would you sacrifice a little smoothness for a better behaved ‘baller boy?

Damn it must feel good to be Karalyn West.
ICYMI: Howler Magazine is a brand new footy mag containing roughly +100 pages of original writing, humour, op-eds plus beautiful illustrations and photography. Emphasis on beautiful photography.
Shameless plug: since the pub’s editor was gracious enough to give you, our lovely and loyal readers, a sneak peek at Stu’s feature from issue one (we’ve been promised “several” more of where the above came from as well), do us a favour and order your copy of Howler Magazine’s first issue now. It might be wise to add a yearly subscription to your Crimbo wish lists, too. Either way, you should buy Howler for the sole purpose of objectifying Stu Holden the Super Hero.
Trust us, Kickettes. We’d never steer you wrong in matters as important and life changing as this.
He’s so excited to be a Malaga player, we’re so excited that his eight pack abs are TK.
Obviously this photo begs two questions:
1) At what point on the happy meter does Gooch need to reach for his trousers to come off?
2) How long do we have to keep hitting refresh on his Twitter feed to find out?
It’s Labor Day in America today, so we want to wish our US Kickettes whatever salutation is in accordance with this paid day off from work! We’ve decided to limit our labour today as well, so Weekend Results will be posted tomorrow.
In other news, the dignified Dimitar Berbatov finally has his smokin’ hot groove back. Hurray!
Bit of a hoopla in the press today about Mario Balotelli’s latest late night excursion involving a bevy of ‘beauties’ piling into his white Bentley GT. Horrendous fashion aside, the Man City player was photographed smoking a fag at some point in the evening.
What’s your take on cigarettes and athletes, Kickettes? We can’t understand why anyone who needs to be strong of lung and body would smoke, but a lot of footie players do.
