Lately we’ve been pondering the hotness factor of many pocket-sized ballers that trot around on the pitch like pedigree miniature ponies.
There are quite a few of these such players that we find rather fetching, but their smaller stature limits our appreciation.
The analysis tends to go like this: Pro, they will fit comfortably and attractively in a WAG-sized handbag. Both portable and pleasing to the eye!; Con, we have a severe addiction to very tall shoes and thus, we may not even know if they were standing nearby or had pissed off to the pub instead of handing the credit card over to the shop assistant.
But enough about us. Do you like your ballers pocket-sized?
Although we were somewhat amused by the story published over the weekend about a possible Cristiano Ronaldo/ Sergio Ramos/ Nereida Gallardo love triangle, we suspect it is completely fake.
So let’s not dwell on who whatsherface may or may not have slept with in the past.
Instead, let’s tweak this example of love amongst the ballers and head into a new, PG16-category of Sizzle Query: The Mandatory Triple Challenge.
Here’s how it works. There are two options, and you must choose one of the following:
A mad, passionate night of passion-filled madness featuring yourself and
David Beckham / Ludovic Magnin;
or Iker Casillas / Ivan Campo?
Which will it be?
A few sidenotes:
- We recognize that some Kickettes may find either option appealing, in which case we must ask that you excuse yourself from the enquiry and seek immediate help; This post idea is shamelessly nicked from an archived challenge at Celeb-Alert; and we’re concerned this story may be a tad too mean and narky for a Tuesday. Should we discontinue this line of SQ’s?

We may not know much about the MLS, but we commend the hiring process and priorities of D.C. United.
It was a sad, less attractive day when one of fav DC United players, Bobby Boswell, moved on to play for the Houston Dynamo, a team we know exactly nothing about, other than the fact that they may be located in Texas. If you will remember, Bobby was rated the 2006 Defender of the Year, is tall like a mofo and had no issues with going on record exclusively for us to rank the various “mingers” we had chosen for our Finest Five list.

As our very astute Kickette, TFO, so wisely observed in yesterday’s balcony posting, “Does anyone agree with me that any Croatian with a surname ending in “ic” is pretty hot? I found that to be a truth yesterday.“
Agreed. Perhaps we should start a daily Croatian sizzle query schedule. Interesting.
Here’s Ivan Rakitic at a news conference this morning. Does the “ic” theory hold for you?

Hurrah, Euro 2008 starts tomorrow – bring on all that fantabulous footballing talent from Europe. Minus England, obvs. They’ll be spending their summer tanning and shopping and all the other etcs that come with being a shite team in an international competiton. No, we’re not bitter or weepy, thanks for asking.
It should come as no surprise that in lieu of any English talent, Kickette will officially be supporting Spain at the Euros.
Why? Because after extensive, back breaking research we’ve determined that La Furia is the sexiest squad (after all, three out of our finest five members are Spanish): Fernando Torres, Cesc Fabregas, Iker Casillas, David Villa, Xabi Alonso, Miguel Torres and The Ramos (© LD). Pullease. Game over.
Who are you supporting, Kickettes? Anyone heading out to see the games in person? And most importantly, who do you think is the hottest squad in the tourny?
