Special Delivery: Opening The Kickette Mailbox
It’s been a busy few weeks at our HQ, with the TTO’s surprising return and yesterday’s call-for-claws Finest Five write-in and all. You nearly sunk our site’s battleship twice, Kickettes, which is both impressive and frightening for our server.
As one small candy-coated token of our appreciation, we’re allowing everyone to have another gander around the inner layers of our mailbox’s lair.
Please apply your best hue of scarlet lippy and plant a wet one on Yoann’s cheek (your choice as to which one) in order to sign for today’s special delivery.
Short on the sticks of lip-smacking goodness? Your mobile number written in permanent marker should suffice.
The self-incriminating note from a ‘reformed’ fan girl:
I just spotted this on TV. David Beckham has a cameo in a new Diet Pepsi commercial with Sofia Vergara from the American TV show Modern Family….He’s barely in it, actually, and is fully clothed (boo!) but the crowd of screaming girls exactly expresses how I felt when I saw him in a friendly between the LA Galaxy and Real Madrid last summer. He didn’t play, actually, due to his Achilles tendon injury, but you know all Becks has to do to elicit screams is walk across a corner of the pitch. Or appear in a Diet Pepsi commercial.
Tru fax, y’all.
The “Gushy Love Letter” that we save for rainy/fat days:
I know this contact form is supposed to be for issues with the site, or whatever, but I am using it to generally assault you lovely, genius ladies with love instead. I adore your site and feel that it is truly the best of all possible worlds. Sexy ‘ballers + fantastically witty commentary + fashion + gossip + an entire section devoted to the beloved short tents + bona fide football knowledge = you are everything that is right with the internet. Please keep it up and know how bright you always make my day! I will one day repay you when my ‘baller husband and I buy your HQ its very own open bar. <3!
It’s a lot of pressure, but that’s what Kickette is all about: helping others feed their hot footballer addictions.
The “Double Dare Ya” e-mail of enticement:
I noticed that you guys didn’t have anything on one of my favorite MLS players, Robbie Rogers. He’s an absolute babe! Need some proof?
When horn to horn with promises of proof, we try not to let our excitement get the best of our afternoon snacks. We have to give generous kudos to Lily(?) for making good on the teasing, though, since Robbie Rogers has a DailyBooth account that features his Robert Pattinson-like looks and a great glass of Malbec. Mmm…
Oh, and he’s available for public consumption.
The non-worded news notification:
Listen, it’s cool. Gossip and story tips come in all shapes and sizes, just like Caroline’s precious bump. We often take what we can get.
However, to maximise your chances of us reading your e-mail and responding before the end of the decade – without you having to follow up with scorned soliloquies full of nail varnish chipping threats/wishes – it wouldn’t hurt to populate the e-mail window’s subject line and/or body.
Merely a suggestion, that’s all.
