The TTO: Fernando Llorente Torres v Emmanuel Adebayor
Time for another Thursday/Friday Thigh Off. It’s a battle between the leggy and the leggier this week.
Come on in and share your quadrific analysis.
This week’s Thigh Off is brought to you by ONTD Football.
It’s been a busy week for us at Kickette HQ: The Virgin Bojan’s got a potty mouth, Fernando Torres is injured again, our unofficial community posterboy and mushroom-hater Cesc was named Capitán Fabulous (Fabrelous? Fabugas?) of Arsenal, and… Champions League matches! Please tell us you watched the arctic Real Madrid v BATE Borisov game and saw Iker, erm, adjusting himself before a goal kick… Mmph.
Once in a while, it’s important to take a breather and remember what’s important before you lose sight of things. Work, college, shopping, running out of room on your TiVO/SkyPlus/television recording equivalent because you’ve got too many footie matches, the credit crrrunch, people leaving empty milk cartons in the fridge, sleeping through all four of your morning alarms, some random stepping on your stilettos, relationship drama with your stalker of choice, these are all stressful obstacles in the journey of life.
Allow us to help. Though we may hail from all around the globe, we can all take a time out to make a little American Spanksgiving detour. Let’s send a quick prayer of thanks for what’s truly important in life to the big guy in the net, San Iker.
Hallowed San Iker, guardian of goal,
Give us this Thursday our weekly thigh,
So muscley and delish,
Our mouths go dry.
Hallowed San Iker, with your magnificent nose,
Thank you for thine blessing o’ thigh,
For the Thigh Off this week, these are the studs we chose:
First, ladies (and possible lurking curious gentlemen): Fernando Llorente Torres (what is it with Spain and tall, hunky forwards named Fernando Torreses?!). A striker for the Basque side Athletic Bilbao, he’s six feet and five inches(!) of legginess, blond curls, and virtuoso clarinet skills. And, we don’t doubt that he’s also done time as some sort of Abercrombie & Fitch model.
Next, Emmanuel Adebayummy. He’s an equally leggy Togolese striker who helps to up the Arsenal sexyfactor. He’s the star of countless hilarious Youtube gems (look at us sneaking in our daily dose of Hleb!) and daaang, boy’s got moves. He scores a lotta goals, too…
Mmm. Tall thigh. Happy voting.
Congrats to last week’s winner who took it by a chest hair – Zinedine Zidane narrowly won over Luis Figo’s awesome thigh power. Congrats!
