The TTO: Matthew Upson v Lucas Neill
Welcome to another Thursday Thigh Off.
On a day that isn’t Thursday.
Perhaps the time may have come for us to take on a thigh-specific expert willing to work tirelessly into the night uploading photos of quadriceps to our server without a single cocktail break. But that’s probably illegal under the employment act.
Anyhoo, let’s enjoy our pre-weekend West Ham competition between Matthew Upson and Lucas Neill.
30 years old. 6’1”. Central defender and England NT player.
Matthew’s the type to hover just slightly under your radar, slow burning, training in secret behind closed doors, waiting for his perfect moment to show you what you’ve been missing. We all know when that very moment came. Whether or not Mr. Upson has jumped the shark and can climb no further in our estimations remains to be seen. But he’s putting in a very good effort with these legs.
31 years old. Also 6’1. Defender. Captain of the Australian NT.
Mr. Neill tends to bring out a love/hate reaction in many. He’s quite firey and oftentimes you’ll find him in a pushy shovey aggro situ. Let’s face facts: Lucas is a sexy beast. He also has a soul patch. Tricky. But this is about the thighs, so take your time and consider what he has to offer you.
Who gets your vote this week, Kickettes?
Congrats to last week’s winner by a country mile – Marco Cassetti, who took the lush Philippe Mexes to school. Last we heard, Mexes was drowning his sorrows by shopping for more stone-washed denim and a Bedazzler.
