Lazy Links & Randoms

Kaka embraces Julio Cesar in celebration after Brazil squeeze through to the finals of the Confederations Cup with a 1-0 win over South Africa.

Julio’s fine form in base layers almost makes us accept under armour. Almost. Okay, we still hate them and wish they would die. Congrats Brazil!

People Magazine make an attempt at USMNT footie coverage. They picked some good ‘uns, at least.

The Beckhams have been holidaying in France. Victoria’s “new” boobs still look like her old ones to us.

Alex Gerrard continues to look fantastic on her family vacation in Spain.

New Manchester City signing, Roque Santa Cruz, is a ping pong master. Who knew?

Someone in the PL has been a naughty, injury-hiding boy. Who could it be?

Iker Casillas gets teary in public. Again. Seriously, we’re all for men being in touch with their emotions and all, but come on baby. Be a strong little keeper solider now.

    Pilly, the great Brazilian Pelé said today that the team he most enjoys watching is Manchester United.

    Honestly, who reads People? Pick up a Newsweek, a Time, a New Yorker, a New Republic. People is junk food for the brain. There is no sustenance there.

    Alex is looking slim but oddly shapeless.

    Victoria is becoming the Michael Jackson (God rest) of Wagdom.

    Well done Brazil :) That was an immense free kick.
    Poor Iker. USA just performed the best on the day, and unfortunately that had serious consequences for Spain. Anyway, the world cup is the big focus.
    Shame there’s no Brazil and Spain final though for the Confeds. That would have been an amazing match :(

    Pobrecito Iker. He's still gorgeous…

  5. aristeia says:

    And oh baby when JC removes those base layers. And goes down a water slide. *le sigh*

    Alex does look great… but DAMN Stevie… DAMN.

    Aw Iker… I’ll comfort you bb.

    I’m pretty sure it’s okay to be informed on world news and gossip. I read The Iliad for enjoyment. And I have a weekly comic book subscription. Sometimes we need the lighter stuff.

  6. Lolinha says:

    Boy did Julio Cesar make sure no one was getting a glimpse of him. Even Dani was all bundled up. I was thinking there wasn’t going to be any flesh exposed, but then he scored that beautiful goal and the shirt came off and all was well in the universe again. Love you Dani, you’re my hero (well for this summer at least). Pilly, I think they were talking about the base layers. And yeah Brasil f*cking rules! Aww Iker, this hasn’t been a great year for him.

Some do only one, some only the other, but it's more fun to get the best of both worlds! :)

    Congrats, Brazil!LOL, People Magazine. You should see my town's newspaper though if you want funny. Terrible coverage, you can tell they have no idea what they're talking about, but great pics.Really hating Victoria's outfit there. Yes, she's on vacation. Thats no excuse.And Alex Gerrard just proves said theory.Roque went to Manchester City? When did THAT happen?Hmm…Iker.. how can you be so hot?? Seriously… even when he's crying, he's still major, major hot. Wow.

  9. Pilly says:

    “Okay, we still hate them and wish they would die.“

    What??Well, I wish that someday the English Team win something, and some videos of Brasil National Team will help, no doubts, we

  10. kickette says:

    No Pilly – we’re talking base layers which are the most evil creation on the planet. NOT the delights of the Brazilian NT!

  11. Jo says:

    Pilly, Kickette was talking about the base layers – not the Brazil NT.

  12. The Fourth Official says:

    I believe it's Capitol Hill, not Capital Hill. I rest my case.

  15. TammyV says:

    I am all for People covering the boys, but a little fact checking? How hard is that? Benny did not score the second goa against Spain, the Duce did. and I am sad for IKER, though for about 90 minutes on SWeds, I find nothing attractive about him or his boys. It confused me too

  17. TammyV says:

    Typos happen to everyone…For example, I know it is not "a" New Yorker or "a" New Republic; it is "THE New Yorker" and "THE New Republic." "The" is in their formal titles. I have read my fair share of editions to pick-up these little things. People is still way more entertaining, though.

  18. TammyV says:

    Everyone I know reads People actually.. When I worked on Capital Hill, there was a pecking order for it starting at the top. It is just fun light reading that is mindless entertainment…and doesn't claim to be anything more.

  19. LoveLamps says:

    Oh where to begin?! Kaka and JC = pure beauty, but how much better that would have been nakey! Show us some skin JC! USMNT in People. Yeah America is trying to embrace football, at least this week. Posh still looks the same. *is confused* Alex is just not as pretty as her husband. Dear God, did I just type that? Sorry but it's true. I don't even like the man and he's looking seriously hot in those pics. Roque and ping pong? My how the mind wanders . . . . . And Iker, oh dear Iker. This man has won me over with his mad skills, his stellar profile and his intense passion for the game. I do love you Iker. I can no longer deny it. Now you can stop crying.

    To Pilly below….it's the base layers that should die, not the Brazilian team! We want naked flesh, that's all! :)

    Well… at least People tried. I’ll give them credit for that.

  24. Eternal Dreamer says:

    Vic – her boobs don’t look any different unless they are swollen from surgery still. Alex – I’m liking her more now that we only see her occasionally. She makes me want to work out. Kudos to her. Iker – I think my heart stopped for a minute there. I love a passionate man. HOT!

    Oh Iker, I love you, let me kiss away your tears.
