Pose Off: Sergio Ramos vs Leo Messi


Sergio Ramos flexing in the above promo for the November issue of Men’s Health Espana or Leo Messi’s khaki craze for something or other. Who wins?

Well, to paraphrase Brooks of Yahoo’s Dirty Tackle writes, a ‘baller modelling clothes pales in comparison to a ‘baller modelling bulgey briefs. Thus, we gotta give this no contest to Sergio Ramos.

Betcha didn’t see that one coming.

We’ve all experienced the shame of shutter paunch (definition: an upsetting phenomenon caused by people photographing you when  your tummy is folded into an unflattering position) but doubt Luke Sherbon will give a crap about his excess baggage this morning.

When this shot was taken the Dandenong Thunder midfielder had just scored in the final of the Victoria Premier League, and the 2-1 victory over Oakleigh Cannons made them the first side in thirty years to secure the Victorian treble.

If that isn’t enough win for you, the Victoria Premier League is frequently referred to as the VPL in Australia. The potential for crap jokes is ruddy endless, no?
