Aitor Ocio’s Abs: Unemployed Yet Undeterred


It’s a good thing Aitor Ocio has his abs to fall back on because starting next season, he’s out of a job at Athletic Bilbao. Gainful employers, now’s your time to step forward and hire this man’s bodily services – at a cut price, no less. Image: vanitatis.

The Midweek Mmm: Karim Benzema, Real Madrid

Question: We can see why adidas were keen to nail Karim down to another contract, but how much *more* fun would it have been had they tied him down to our bedposts instead?

Answer: Tons.

The Tuesday Torso: Luiz Antonio, Flamengo

Blindfolding players is a necessary evil if we want the exact location of Kickette HQ to remain a secret.

We tend to take their pleas for leniency a little more seriously if they help us out in the early stages, though.

Europa League Final: Atlético Madrid Wins, Strips & Parades

Hallelujah, the Europa League is over. Many games were played by various teams, all except one were not watched by ourselves.

Double hallelujah for the sexy six packs of Atlético Madrid (including Alvaro Dominguez; Falcao; Diego and Mario Suarez, at left, far left…who is dating Malena Costa…), who defeated Athletic Bilbao 3-0 to claim the Europa League title. As Kickette loyalists know, we often talk about stronger, prettier, fitter teams prevailing over their less studly competition, and last night’s all-Spanish final was no different.

Nice going to Atlético on the win and for following Kickette Celebratory Procedure to the letter!
