Doppelgänger Dudes: Landon Donovan & Some Chanel Model


Presenting Landon Donovan and a random Chanel model, who could quite easily star alongside one another in a remake of the Disney movie where twins switch places, ‘Freaky Friday.’

Only theirs would be called, ‘Freaky, Fraternal-Twins-Separated-At-Birth-Holy-Cow-They-Look-So-Much-Alike-We-Can’t-Get-Over-It Friday.’

Too long of a title?


Cheers to @DanielleLlanes for the spot. Images via Getty and Tumblr.


Clint Dempsey: Pucker Up, Pretty Boy


Clint Dempsey scored the only goal in Fulham’s 1-0 victory over Liverpool at Craven Cottage last night, breaking Brian McBride’s record to become the top American scorer in EPL history. His former club, New England Revolution, tweeted their congratulations to the USMNT player after the goal, which takes his EPL tally to 37.

For the statisticians among you, Deuce is also the only American player to score against Liverpool. Awestruck by this amazing feat, UN peace envoy-in-waiting Craig Bellamy was on the scene to offer his hearty congratulations and clearly couldn’t wait to do so.

Pucker up, Clinty-boy. We’re on our way to do the same.

The week started as a soap opera, segued gently through fantasy into fashion commentary before coming to rest in Xabi Alonso’s shorts. Unfortunately, it’s gonna finish on an horrific note – first visual, then emotional.

Sorry Kickettes. We only spread the gossip – we don’t have control over the content.
