Kickette Catch Up: Your Weekend Gossip Cheat Sheet
- Jealous that their team-mates were getting their fair share of physically-bothersome advances whilst on tour, MCFC’s Edin Dzeko and Alecks Kolarov decided it was time to ditch their shirts once and for all (during their club’s beach party in L.A) in order to get our attention. Mission accomplished.
- Speaking of ‘ballers who get dressed in the same close quarters as Joe Hart, it’s time to reveal our Umbro t-shirt giveaway winner. Kickettes, please give a rowdy round of applause for Christie and her valiant begging efforts. Since we’re suckers for children, we’re pleased to report a second shirt will be going to Sean B (or possibly his daughter). PS: e-mail us your address to claim your prizes!
- FIFA announced its lifetime ban on Mohamed Bin Hammam, the former Asian Football Confederation president who was found guilty of bribing officials during his run for Sepp Blatter’s seat mere months after he assisted Qatar in securing the World Cup hosting rights for 2022.
- Word is that Victoria Beckham has plans to open her first retail store along the street shopping mecca in NYC, 5th Avenue. Will you be visiting during your next trip to the Big Apple, Kickettes?
Finally, for Kickettes in and around the New England area, if you wish to have the likes of the Revolution’s Benny Feilhaber and AJ Soares slave over your nightly sauce, the MLS club is having a Celebrity Bartending night for charity this Thursday in Boston. Show ‘em some love and bring singles in case they’re down for shirt removal via tips.
