Footie Love: When Did It Start For You?
It’s Friday, there’s news to report, but none that we can be arsed enough to bring ourselves to discuss (John Carew and Alesha.…we should care as she’s rather cute, and he was voted one of Norway’s hottest guys by Elle magazine, but… meh), Posh’s Vogue cover (she looks nice, but we thought the Elle US cover was spunkier), and so on. We will try to pull ourselves together, but it’s not looking good.
In the meantime, here’s a query dear readers: What first got you hooked on football? When did you become a fan? Did it start with a moment, ie a shirtless one, or has it been lifelong?
Before you answer, these are questions meant to be considered whilst nibbling on a chocolate eclair, sipping champs and gazing at your Xabi screensaver as you plan your weekend’s pulling ensemble. Please prepare properly before responding.
FYI, our love for the pain and pleasures of the beautiful game hit full stride watching the England/Argentina agony of 1998 (Michael Owen’s golden goal, curtain-haired Becks getting sent off, the freaking penalties); a year later, we crashed a party in London and the sight of Posh ‘n Becks up close and personal, (in their infamous matching Gucci leather outfits) and then-sizzler Ryan Giggs, (who was standing alone amongst the celebs, decked out in a great suit) started a fire under our borrowed Choos.
Oh yes, our obsession with footie and frivolity began to take full, stalked-out shape during those wondrous years of leather and drama and leather-filled drama. What started it for you?
