The Sizzle Query: Bawling Ballers
Last night, the lush Cesc Fabregas scored a great goal in Arsenal’s winning Champions League game against AC Milan. But is this news?
Well, short of him growing a handlebar moustache and/or losing all his money, we’re extremely interested in anything sexy Cesc does, so we vote yes. But his killer skill set aside, what really made the magic happen for us was seeing Cesc get a little emotional after the goal.
Can anyone explain why the sight of a baller crying on the pitch is sizzle rather than sad? Please, be aware: we’re not advocating that men immediately get in touch with their Oprah side and invest in numerous boxes of man-sized tissues because God knows that would annoy us beyond repair. We like our men manly (ish) and emotionally in control, please and thank you.
Do you share our love of the footballing tearful and thighful, or are you embarrassed for them, their fans and their family when they lose it in a match?
