Lazy Links & Randoms

Ever been on a double date as a favour to a friend and she swears that this massively hot guy she going out  with has a ‘lovely’ friend who is single? So you go along as a favour to her, with faint hopes that he might be the man of your dreams and are then confronted with something like this (above left).  Hmm. We have.

Upsetting and confusing, Kickettes. But it’s that kind of week. For a start, we read this article and discovered we quite like Elen Rives. Then, if that wasn’t bizarre enough, accent aficionado and ex England manager Steve McLaren has put his er… umbrella behind him to win the Dutch Eredivisie with FC Twente.

Wow. If redemption is available at this level, people, there may even be hope for Sergio Ramos (left).

- We thought the results of our fantasies about building the ultimate footballer were a bit weird. But not this weird.

- And now we’re reaaallllly confused. But in a much better way.

- Okay. So people are GIVING cake away now. But not to us. Seriously?

- On the plus side, all this makes the news that C-Ron will be having his own waxwork at London’s Madame Tussauds seem a like a plausible idea. For future reference, if anyone is ever arrested, say, for being drunk & disorderly and trying to mount the aforementioned waxwork, our in-house solicitors have already prepared a statement of denial. Just so you know.

- Speaking of mounting people in the Greater London area, the rumour mill has thrown out the possibility of  Marco Boriello and Kaka (left) starring in the midfield for Chelsea next season. Bound to be rubbish, but we love the transfer window for this exact reason.

- Sylvie Van Der Vaart happily remains in ‘Let’s Dance’ for another week. She gained 31 points last Friday for her Paso Doble and ran into a few challenging questions from an unexpected source. Bless.

- Loss of earnings? Status? Nope. Studs Up confronts the real peril of relegation.

- We want to live in this dressing room. We’ll sell a kidney for it. Hell, we’ll sell all of our internal organs. To medical science. They wouldn’t be much use to anyone else.

Finally, for today at least, everyone should become an honorary Seattle Sounders fan. Why? Watch this.  We. Want. To. Die.

If anyone knows where they retail those light-sabers, please let us know. We really need one for the Kickette office.

    I will definitely go for the Puyol hair for the ultimate footballer. I love his hair! It's gorgeous. But…Xavi's eyes? Er, no thanks. How about Sebastian Larsson's eyes? Yoann Gourcuff's extraordinary lashes? Yeah, take that into consideration next time, Castrol!

    Although what does an oil company really know about sexy footballers?!

    • senora ramos says:

      as far as xavi’s eyes, i think it’s less for looks and more for ability to see the field and be creative

  2. jackie says:

    What in the world is Zlatan and Pique doing? so…awww…confusing

  3. IbraPique says:

    I want in that ibra/pique photo

  4. coco says:

    OMG… pique and ibra!!!! Nice to see the Ramos ..haven't seen him around lately…he looks pretty good in anything…:)

  5. carly says:

    Yep, becoming a Seattle Sounders fan as we speak. So cute! :D

  6. beri says:

    First off, wow…Elen Rives who knew an ex WAG lived through such a horrible ordeal. I have a new found respect for her…good PR job!

    Then…the Ramos! He’s a cutie with an odd sense of style, but on the bright side his hair looks amazing!

    CRon getting his own wax statue. All I can say is Kickette, I’ll be your accomplice in the drunken and disorderly mounting of said wax figure. It’s probably the closest I’d ever get to CRsexy!

    Oh and how could I forget, the weird RM add. It’s weird yes, but still cute. I would give anything to be that kid or to step foot in that dressing room with all the players inside. Hmmm….Real Madrid such a yummy team!

  7. Merel says:

    No Sylvie-scale this week?

  8. TB says:

    After reading the Elen article, a friend reminded me that she left out a good chunk of years… namely the 2-3 major ones where she was married before meeting Frank. Nice PR spin, though.

  9. GoonerGal says:

    anyway, kaka just made my day. The Pique(?) thing too. Rawwwwrrrrrrrr

  10. Ella says:

    Elen's article was very interesting! I now get why she's done some of the things she's been doing….the modeling, tv show, etc. Good for her.

    I also will join all the girls breaking into the wax museum to mount Cris' statue, LOL!

    The vid with the Sounders was probably the sweetest thing I've seen recently. And I've always like that team anyway, but now even more!

  11. lilah says:

    ahh the ramos just made my day..and my week, and month. luv that guy!
    i’d really like to see that poster where he’s holding that kids hand..dont see it well enough on the pic above :) anyone?

  12. senora ramos says:

    well, sergio is forgiven for the red pants (which actually don’t look bad) for being an amazing person. and for holding hands with the little boy in the poster thing behind him. and for calling out people who think madrid don’t play “beautiful” football. and for being sergio, b/c he is awesome!

    lol at the cake! no fair y’all didn’t get one.

    kaka going to chelsea! ha ha! him, kun, nando, etc, etc. who do they think they are…real madrid :D (it’s always ok to laugh at yourselves)

    • senora ramos says:

      also, omg elen! i actually like her as well now. how can you not?!

      • senora ramos says:

        one more add. that kid is full of win. what i wouldn’t give to be in madrid’s locker room

  13. cutecurls says:

    That article by Elen Rives is just incredible. Completely blew me away.

  14. JMG says:

    I've never wanted to be a little boy in a superhero costume so badly before…

  15. tammyv says:

    OK I hate Seattle but that was darling…I mean, I really hate Seattle.. that was adorable.

    The Elen article is great and I can't wait to see the documentary.

  16. MrsNesta says:

    Ok I've decided that Seattle Sounders will be my MLS team, The Make a Wish Foundation is a fantastic charity (and I squealed when I saw Freddie) :)

    OMG that photo of Ibra and Pique <3 <3

    Definitely strange advert but I would sell as many body parts as poss to get into the RM dressing room, and Sergio can wear what he wants cos he's lovely on the inside and out!!

    Marco needs to go to Arsenal if he's going anywhere, along with Yoann, and Kaka can come too, especially after the VF cover shot!!

    I have access to a light-saber that can change colour from blue to red so you can be good and evil, mwah ha ha :)
