In a recent interview with ESPN magazine, Hope Solo confessed to being drunk during a 2008 Today show interview, just after the USWNT had picked up the gold medal.
The American goalie’s ability to simultaneously defy the laws of sobriety and maintain her composure is an admirable character trait that we hope to possess ourselves someday. On the flip, Hope’s conflict with former USWNT player/current TV presenter, Brandi Chastain, is giving us a massive migraine.
Whose side are you on in this she said/she said war of (partially tweeted) words, Kickettes?
The story of this weekend goes to us meeting Yoann Gourcuff, a day everyone at Kickette had been hoping, praying and taking bets for.
Why waste energy and hard cash stalking a global football star when other media outlets will do it for you?
Thanks to the New York Times’ recent interview with Thierry Henry, we’re in a position to bring you the following: he lives on Crosby Street, treats his daughter Tea (mum is Claire Merry – his English ex-wife he “had to get away from” when he fled to Barcelona) to Sarabeth’s cupcakes whenever she visits him in the Big Apple and is a foodie at heart.
Thierry, like Claudine Keane, is also an admirer of shiny things. Perhaps unlike Robbie Keane’s missus, the Red Bulls player loves the smell of concrete.
The quest to determine the hottest ‘baller not named Beckham in the MLS is a long and treacherous one, filled with much analysis of thunder thighs, large wage packets and appropriate hair gel usage. Our honourable journey has caused a massive debate amongst our devotees, and now even the players want in.
Beckham aside (‘cos that’d be just too easy), who’s the best-looking MLS All-Star player? Is it classic Californian Dan Kennedy, wavy-haired Graham Zusi, steel-jawed Jay DeMerit, ab-tastic Heath Pearce, 2010 Cosmo bachelor Chris Pontius, bizarre fashion advisor Aurélien Collin or the perpetually-stylish Thierry Henry?
Rather than use our usual lengthy algorithms that take pitch prowess, chin dimples and astrology into consideration, we’ve gone old school and simply created a photo gallery of players who we believe will truly make this year’s All Star game a more beautiful thing.
