Europa League Results: Fulham, Atlético Madrid to The Final

Though some may say the Europa League lacks the luster of a leather couch, we were ready to embrace watching this “consolation” cup once we opened our eyes to Fulham’s inner beauty…’ya know, the abs beneath the surface layer kit.
As such, we’re fine-tuning our attractiveness analysis to include a grandfather clause: teams that aren’t top of the hottie totty food chain can succeed if they get naked willingly and often.
For example, while Fulham may not be as collectively pretty as Fernando Torres in the stands, they peel off the layers come crunch time. Thus, we are claiming partial victory on our long-held footie results system: the universe (justly) rewards the better-looking amongst us; it also rewards those that remove their clothing to give their abs some air. Facts are facts.
Kickettes, will you be watching the tournament’s finals? While the only English team left standing in Europe will be in our hearts, Atlético Madrid’s Diego Forlan and his abs will be in our loins. (Oh and there are many, many more shots if you’re so inclined.)
