Lager Ladies: Caroline Celico & Sarah Brandner

So how did Kaka’s wife recover from Brazil’s stunning WC loss last week? With beer and tickets to see Claudia Leitte in concert, natch.

As exciting as bonging your beer is, Ms. Celico’s mood couldn’t be lifted as she was supposedly “looking concerned” on her mobile whilst trying to keep a safe distance from the press. Perhaps it was the joke she tweeted about Brazil’s now former coach that was weighing heavily on her mind? Or bumping into Sthefany Brito backstage?

Word to the wise: Twitter should not be used as self-expression dumpster bin. For Caroline, we recommend social media etiquette classes as taught by Julio Cesar’s wife, Susana Werner. Earlier that same day, she took to her Twitter feed to tell her hubby to keep his head held high. Aww.

On the flip, Sarah Brandner apparently enjoys Budweiser by the case. Bastian Schweinsteiger’s WAG was papped carting a dozen or so drafts through the stands as Germany defeated Argentina, also last week.

World Cup Hottie Hunting: Pedro Rodríguez Ledesma, Spain

When you think of spry Spanish studs, does your mind immediately gravitate towards Sergio Ramos, Fernando Torres or Cesc Fabregas?

All three at the same time? Naughty!

Perhaps Pedro Rodriguez once found himself on the lower on your awareness totem pole, but that’s about to change. This 22-year-old striker’s marquee is his hair. As it turns out, he has lots of it.

He spent a brief period riding in the caboose of the SNT facial hair train, but has since opted against punching his ticket for round two. For some strange reason, we’re digging his unwaxed, macho manbrows. Since he might be the only SNT member who seems to be getting some this World Cup season, maybe his hair care formula will sweep the football fashion scene in the coming weeks?

World Cup Results: We’re Down To Four

It’s time to face the truth, Kickettes. We’re running out of football. Only three games remain before that yawning chasm that is the off-season opens up before us. Frankly, we’re nervy.

Our only consolation? After all this is over is we will pick ourselves up, pack our lotion, sunnies and industrial-size drum of vodka, before heading off to stalk football players across the globe as they attempt to have a peaceful, private holiday with their families.

In the meantime, please enjoy our thoughts on the feast of footie that was the WC quarter final matches from Friday and Saturday. Wooh hah!


The Friday Fit: Cesc Fabregas, Spain


He’s fierce and he’s fluffy. So deal with it.

FYI: in case you missed our recent Cesc-related tweets, 1. He loves strawberry Actimel and 2. He has an interesting choice of songs selected on his iTunes Playlist.

Robin Van Persie: Conference Room Chit Chat


Robin Van Persie talks to the media prior to the Netherlands v Brazil game this aft. He also took time to discuss the 40 ft electric fence he had to erect outside his house to keep Kickette staff away. Psht. We got stilts, baby. PS: The socks/sandals? They all do it. We are choosing to ignore.
