Not only does Everton and USMNT goalkeeper Tim Howard have the distinction of being one of the best keepers in the world, but he also has the distinction of being the only ‘baller to have single-handedly crashed our server with one of his epic ESPN The Magazine naked photo shoots. We’re sure he holds one in higher regard than the other, but we won’t speculate as to which one (*cough* ours *cough*).

We had the great pleasure of being granted a little one-on-one time with Mr. Howard and he gave us his thoughts on Everton, women’s football, and who should be the next USMNT playing to pose naked.

All in a day’s work, Kickettes.


The Bocagraphic: A Breakdown Of His Body


Celebrates 100th cap

Thnx @esanchez6 for the tip!

Remember that time, way back when, where we charted Skankocity’s course? That was loads of laughs, right?

Well, there’s finally something better. One that didn’t require us lifting a fancy finger to create.

In honour of Carlos Bocanegra’s 100th cap with the USMNT – which he earned last night versus Slovenia – US Soccer has put us and our charts to shame with their aptly-titled Bocagraphic.

Sure it’s got tons of distracting words in all caps mixed with flashy colours, but you need to rise above that, Kickettes, and appreciate this for what it is: 2.5MB of downloadable Boca Burger art.

Have fun clicking/zooming/screen-grabbing the ‘Goals by Body Part’ section, limb by limb. We sure as hell did.

Midweek Results: Hot Boys & Hobo Chic


Presumably there will be consequences for Robbie Keane failing to return to LA Galaxy to prepare for the MLS Cup game on Sunday. We doubt he gives a crap, though. Image: Laurence Griffiths/Getty Images.

A bumper edition of results for you today, including the odd sneaky reference to games we *may* have neglected to cover at the weekend.


Weekend Results: Lunacy & Lessons Learned


Wow. JT’s only been benched for a game and already Frank has found a new BFF. Will his former bezzie cope? Image: Alex Livesey/Getty Images Europe.

Bad news. Due to a series of unexpected international friendly results at the weekend, the ‘Kickette Betting for Beverages’ budget has taken a massive hit.

That means that today’s editorial meeting will be fuelled by coffee. Not the morning mimosa mayhem we rely on.

We’re not optimistic as to the quality of our output today.


Good Week/Bad Week: Warnings & Wine Worries

What did we learn this week, Kickettes?

After careful consideration of all the available information, we all decided that Team GB was in fact a brilliant idea, although not necessarily for footballing reasons. That our tolerance to drink driving offences is inversely proportional to our tolerance of alcohol abuse.

Oh, and we really like pictures of bottoms. Regardless of who they belong to.

Who knew?
