Puyol/Pique TTOToday’s Thursday Thigh off is brought to you by the sexy chicas at ONTD Football. Please pay them a visit; embrace the crazy, it’s for the best.

We still can’t get the Champions League theme song out of our heads.

Please send help.

We had a good final, and yourselves? We quivered on the edges of our seats in cross-legged anticipation and excitement. Not even the sight of Prince Will’s balding skull could slow us down.

Barcelona, it seems, should be the capital city of Earth. Beautiful league trophy, beautiful European trophy, beautiful football, beautiful architecture, beautiful people, beautiful food, beautiful beaches, beautiful Vicky & Cristina… and as word on the street would have it, some decent quads.

We’re still floating about in a sparkling red ocean of sangría over the Catalan victory. A toast, perhaps? To thighs. And delicious defenders. Come on a flex and tone journey with us.
