In Pictures: Gooch and a Gal
This is the American centre back Oguchialu Jacob Onyewu, more commonly known by the rather frathouse-inspired moniker of “Gooch”. He’s 6’4″, plays for Standard Liège (Belgium) and is in talks for a potential transfer to the EPL or one of the bigger sides in France.
BTW, did anyone catch the Liverpool/Standard Liège game last night? Let’s all send some supportive, steady-handed thoughts to the surgeon who’ll be operating on Stevie G’s groin.
But back to Mr. Onyewu. Before you ask, no, we do not know who the graduate of Professional Video Hoes 101 is. UPDATE: she’s his wife, Salome. Golly.
Nor do we have much information on whether these photos were taken for Gooch’s private Athena collection of bicep and skeeze or as an ad campaign for denim, undies or draperies.
What we do know for certain is that footballers and their ilk have bizarre addictions to these such photoshoots. Need we remind anyone of the IKEA cardboard arthouse?
This spread may not be able to rival that of the bat-shite crazy nun on a bicycle, but we applaud Gooch for his effort. Also being applauded: his abs.
