The TTO: Michael Owen v Owen Hargreaves
Michael Owen (Newcastle) and Owen Hargreaves (Manchester United) are up in the mix this week – both of these players have strong fan bases, so it will be interesting to see who strides to victory on this one.

Michael Owen may be prone to injury, but he can still pack a wallop in those quads if he needs to. Kudos has to be given to the sheer amount of rehabilitation this man has endured – ie, those thighs have done a lot of curls and had many a massage to get them into tip top shape. Let us respect the dues these muscle groups have paid.
As for Owen Hargreaves, he does frequently partake in wearing evil base layers and has been known to combine that crime with yanking his damn socks so high we are left with less than 5 inches of muscle to observe. Let us not hold this against him. Perhaps he does this for our own protection - seeing too much of the flesh might induce a riot, for example.
Who gets your vote?*
Congrats to last week’s thightastic victor, Habib Beye, who barely (and we mean, by five votes or so) beat Michael Ballack, who unfortunately suffered much unfair bias due to his jersey, Germaness or nipples, we’re not sure. Regardless, HB, you’re still a worthy winner, nice job!
*We recognize that the zoom shot of Michael Owen in training is slightly biased – after all, most players would look fantastic in that position, regardless. So, to even things out and/or pre-empt the Hargreaves-backlash, please enjoy the attached gratuitous tum shot of MH.
