Welcome to another Thursday* Thigh-Off, Kickettes.  Hope you enjoy the competition between two stellar competitors this week.

Click through for the deets.

Coming up first, it’s Manchester United’s Nemanja Vidic.  He is of strong and mighty-thighed Serbian stock and he has a seriously hot girlfriend.  All good and admirable qualities indeed.

However, his competition comes via the Brazilian talent-machine that is Alex Pato, a striker who plays for AC Milan. He may be young (just eighteen), but he is most certainly worthy.

It’s the battle of the dirty-hot versus brace-face hot.  Who gets your vote?

Congrats and air-kisses to Niko Krancjar, who beat out the lush Florent Malouda by several impressive strides in last week’s draw.  Don’t worry, FM, we’re available for thigh-therapy and so forth.

* We have issues with schedules.

We’re late, we know.  It’s like the good old days when our Thursday Thigh Off would happen at random intervals, usually not actually on a Thursday. Feeling nostalgic? No? You just want the thighs, not the half-arsed rambling, we get it.

Another week, another Thursday Thigh Off, and in our continued Euro-themed quad comps, we’ve decided to pitt two of our favourites against each other.

image

First up, we’ve got the asstastic Cristiano Ronaldo, who will be on the pitch later today (for the quarter-final against Germany). One has to applaud the gene pool that created the muscle groups that live together in harmony so happily in C-Ron’s world.  We’re clapping for them now.

However.

The lush Mr. Ramos is also known for his superior arrangement of flesh and bone. SG, (who’ll we’ll be able to see in action in a few days in Spain’s QF match up with Italy), has much to offer by way of quadly goodness, and deserves a few snaps for his gym time routine and flexing ability.

Enough with the rambling.  Let’s get to the voting.  Remember, this is not a decision to be made lightly, Kickettes.  We suggest you pour yourself a drink, take the phone off the hook and get a note pad to make your comparisons.  When you’re ready, tell us who you think takes the title this week.

Last week’s winner will be updated later on, we’re having a few problems with the site and our new comments section today. Soz, Kickettes. Please post in our old comments box below if you are having trouble as well – we’re working on getting this fixed asap.

It’s our second in the Euro 2008 Thursday Thigh Off series, and this week we look to Group B for some action.

For your quadly consideration, please observe Croatia’s Mladen Petric (he of the dirty hot variety);

vs Germany’s Philipp Lahm (of the baby-faced cute variety).

Both are in action today in the Croatia / Germany game – but we know the true victory that matters is right here, man to man, thigh to thigh.

Who gets your vote?

Congrats to last week’s Group C winner, the incomparable Luca Toni, who comfortably beat the lush Adrian Mutu. Poor Mr. Mutu now has to bear the tragic loss of the Thigh Off, and the wallet crunch of owing Chelsea 80 squillion quid at the same time.  Chin up, hon – you’ve still got your looks.

Let’s begin the first of our Euro 2008 themed Thursday Thigh Offs, shall we?  This week we’re focusing on Group C – Italy’s Luca Toni v Romania’s Adrian Mutu.

What do you need to know about Luca? He’s hella tall (6’4”), loves beer, and has his own website with craptastical dance music playing.

image

His competition comes via the former Finest Five member Adrian Mutu. Mr M. has staged a fabu comeback in both his career (with Fiorentina) and in his happily married w/two three kids personal life (anyone remember the good old days when he used to date porn stars? No? Just us then.)

Who gets your vote?

Congratulations to last week’s Thigh-Off victor: David Beckham, who won by ONE vote.  Cesc luv, don’t despair, you’ve still got years of thigh goodies to bring to the pitch. Let the sizzling elder statesman have his moment before his knees give out.
