Frankenstorm: FIFA, Finances & Footy Reactions


As millions up and down the U S of A’s East Coast brace for a storm inspired by footballers’ auto activities, let’s keep our taking-cover-Kickettes-in-arms safely stimulated and satisfied. Since we’re becoming we’re fully fledged obsessed with mother nature’s ability to interrupt normality at whim, let’s see how famous footy faces are coping so far.


The Friday Fit: Carlos Bocanegra, Racing Santander


Since he withheld his abs from us earlier in the week, it’s time for us to enjoy his biceps.

If you can’t strip down to your shorts and take a pic with your teammates after advancing to the next round of World Cup qualifying action, then when can you, eh? Well done, USMNT.

The fellas beat Guatemala 3-1 in a come-from-behind win in Kansas City last night. The US will now go on to the so-called hex, which is the final group of six from CONCACAF to play for spots in Rio.

That’s far too much technical speak from us today. Let’s admire Geoff Cameron’s arms shall we? We’ll take a special hug from those any day. Also, we want to hug the fan who made the giant Clint Dempsey face and then proceeded to let him walk round the pitch with it. Bravo.

sounds off on early hook DCU new signingWe spend our working lives testing the impact of asshattery on our affections, and in the grand scheme of things, Branko Boskovic’s bitching about being picked (or not) for D.C. United is nothing more than a tiny chink in his fetching love armour. Especially since he scored in DC’s victory over Chivas USA not too long ago, which kind of proved his point.

However, this kind of thing can escalate. Right now it’s whining because he keeps getting subbed, but we can visualise the future clearly. Moaning about having to wear what we tell him to, bitching on about our ambitious credit card bills, grumbling as he drives us to our daily mani/pedi treatment in the super expensive sports car we made him buy.

Is that face worth the bother, Kickettes? Or would you sacrifice a little smoothness for a better behaved ‘baller boy?
