Let’s talk footy and fuchsia, shall we?
We approve of Everton’s funky pink and black striped kits, if only because they seemed to have had a thigh-inducing effect on the team Saturday. And we’d definitely be remiss if we didn’t properly thank the Italian National Team for providing us gratiuitous shots of Fabio Cannavaro in a pink practice ensemble.
But pink on the breast plate is just that: pink on the breast plate. If real men wear pink, then what do we call jumping, head-banded men in matching pink shirts and socks?
Let’s consider a few footy moments in rose before we seek your opinion.
The premise of this Sizzle Query is simple, dear readers. Three National team footy players. All offering champagne, grapes and an overnight cuddle sesh. You must divvy out your responses as follows:
1. Submit willingly to one by saying “yes”;
2. Rubber stamp a big ‘ole REJECTED sign on on another, signifying “no”;
3. Ask for a raincheck by regrettably informing them “maybe so/not now but absolutely later babe, pinky swear!”
(Let us pre-empt the inevitable – you’re not allowed to vote “I throw a rope around the trio and group-run like hell to the nearest shower.”)
Just to throw another wrench your way, we didn’t necessarily select the most obvious choices of man candy. To play fairly, we decided to give some of the other NT members the spotlight for a change. “Some” being the operative word.
That being said, hypothetical circumstances are irrelevant. You must choose and there’s no other way about it. Keep in mind that while we’ve included our own thoughts, You.Must.Choose. Since we are co-conspirators of the original version of this game, we just supercede the rules.
This should be good.
Let’s keep this one simple as today’s pretty much a write-off, what with the day jobs and the pre-WC game drinking and what not:
Who wore the World-Cup-track-jacket-on-a-stool-with-a-smile better: Cristiano for Nike or Kaka for Adidas?
Jermaine Jenas and Aaron Lennon took their gals out for dinner at Nobu in Mayfair recently.
Which couple do you think deserves the style points?
Think of science and what springs to mind?
Hey, wake up, we’re not done yet. We think that the science-folk out there might just have discovered their inner cool.
*sounds boat horn* Please. Attention. Come back and sit down.
Let us explain: We’ve got a sneaky suspicion that the folks down at New Scientist have been following us on Twitter. Their latest foray into male forensics has Kickette written all over it: rating footballers’ levels of attractiveness. Our ears have pricked up – have yours?
After some meticulous research, which involved showing participants pictures of sportsmen and having them pass judgment on their looks (why were we not invited?), New Scientist proposed the theory that the best athletes tend to be the best-looking ones.
