Good Week/Bad Week: Babies, Bumps and Books
Lampsy and JT comic (which takes a true, special love and makes it super-creepy) exclusively for Kickette by Studs Up
The newly engaged Fernando Torres took his gal Olalla on a weekend break to Monaco. There is definitely a little Nando in the oven: Olalla made no attempts to hide her bump. She looks a good four+ months along to us.
Arts & Crafts
Fashionistas/wagabees in the making, we’ve got great news for you: looking like the budget version Alex Gerrard or Victoria Beckham just got easier. Grab a pair of scissors and stop eating any kind of food because information on how to make your own pair of latex leggings has hit the internet.
Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero has made an annoucement that his wife Sonia is pregnant with their second child. They already share a son, Tobias, who was born in October 2007. Congratulations!
Inter Milan’s Cristian Chivu is a father. His wife, Adelina, gave birth to a little girl on the 12th of Feb, and they’ve named her Natalia. Sweet!
Steven Gerrard (Liverpool) has revealed his favourite book is Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. “I’ve read the story from cover to cover so many times the book has almost fell apart,“ he says. Stevie also admits he used to love creative writing in school and wrote a brilliant piece about winning the World Cup.
Pato (AC Milan) is back together with his ex-girlfriend Sthef. (Who we’ve just discovered, spells her name with a “th”. Bad week for fact checking). We wondered what was up last night when we saw him making his patented “heart” goal celebration - looks like they’re giving it another go.
Danielle Lloyd is writing a tell-all book about her life and loves. Her loves, of course, involve dating several gazillion footballers. Not sure who the book is aimed for: men (who surely don’t want to know the intimate details of Jermain Defoe’s night moves), or women (seeking advice on how to rocket from the D list to the C list and then back again)?
Keeping it classy
They’ve had a tumultuous relationship from the start (got married on Friday the 13th, broke up mere minutes after the wedding, then got back together a few months later), so the final end shouldn’t come as a surprise. Sunderland’s Michael Chopra has been dumped by his wife, Heather, via Facebook. Don’t worry. He got her back by canceling her mobile phone service. Take that, romance.
Speaking of which, if any of our Kickette readers are Facebook members, you might want to have a read of their new terms of service. And then hire a lawyer.
QPR. Service Station. Pizza. Cardiff City and Brighton supporters. Food fight.
When poetry this good is freely available, quite frankly, card shops have got no chance.
