Frank Lampard: Consolation Cuddles
Ahem. Excuse us for a moment. We just need to save this to the Kickette hard drive for closer examination later. All in the name of science, you understand. (Getty Images/Zimbio)
Seeking solace in the arms of a buff bloke is an extremely popular way to deal with bad news here at Kickette. In fact, we actively encourage the practice, both for ourselves and between men, although the latter is largely to satisfy our slightly odd and potent lust. You may have noticed.
Frank Lampard is a man who is comfortable enough with his sexuality to freely express his affection for other males. And considering the latest news regarding his ex-partner Elen Rives, we’re not surprised he felt the need for a loving embrace or two. What did surprise us was his choice of partner. Instead of common-law husband John Terry, Lamps chose nubile nineteen year old defender Jeffrey Bruma for his post-traumatic snuggles (top).
Is he so traumatised that he requires two men to nurse him through this devastating blow? Or has John’s famous wandering eye been caught by Ipswich Town’s, as the above photo suggests?
It’s stuff like this that can really affect a team’s performance in the league, y’know.
