Beware the Angry Ginger

Paul Scholes of Man U is in a spot of bother after calling a referee a “poofter” when he received a yellow card.

He’s being pressured to apologize by gay rights activitists who are urging disciplinary action – giving the example that if he had said something racist, he would be instantly punished.

We’re thinking spouting off like this was not a wise move for Mr. Scholes, who already has enough going against him.

You know, being a ginger minger* and all.

Bad red-headed step-child. Bad, bad ginger!

*for our North American readers, that’s pronounced with a hard ‘g’ sound: “ghin-gher min-gher” and is an insult that can usually be thrown around freely with very little recourse. Go on, try it now, you’ll feel great afterwards.

Extracurricular Activities: Freddie Ljungberg

This report says Freddie Ljungberg is moving on from Calvin Klein underwear modeling to become a more “statesmanlike” representative for Arsenal.

What is this world coming to when such drivel, lies and drivelous lies will be tolerated in the press? Being paid to flex your abs in your skivvies is honorable and taxing work, something that should be taken up by more members of the Premier League, not less.

Idle threat: The day Freddie hangs up his CK undies will be the day Kickette starts buying from Fruit of the Loom. And dear readers, you do not want that day to come in your lifetime.

Taking their inspirations from the Beckhams possible move into film, John Terry and Frank Lampard are in talks with producers of a big budget Bollywood film. Even Jose Mourinho, the smilingest man in England could have a walk on part. Chelsea are “delighted to be involved.“

We hate Mondays, but pictures like this sure ease the pain of having to work for a living.

Now, how does the saying go?

“Hate to see you leave, but love to see you walk away?“

Or in Robbie Savage’s case: we don’t care if you move to Siberia, but that gym time is obviously working out well for you. Really. Well.

So apparently, Katie Holmes will be playing Victoria Beckham in an upcoming biopic about David Beckham’s life.

*pause for deep cleansing breaths*

Up until now, we’ve been happily putting our fingers in our ears when stories fly about the Beckhams’ friendship with TomKat, even after David’s very recent tabloid comments that he had a long heart to heart with Tom when he was dropped from the England squad.

We successfully ignored the photos of Victoria shoe shopping with Katie and carrying around a Scientology Indoctrination handbook. But this, we cannot ignore.

One small mercy: Tom Cruise will not be playing the role of David, due to “marked physical differences”.

He’s twenty-five, super-fine, born and raised in Madrid, has lightning quick reflexes, and enjoys long walks in the park eating Skittles.

Okay, we made up the last bit, but how great would that be if he did?

No? Just us, then.
