The TTO: Michael Owen v Owen Hargreaves

image

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.

    Michael Michael Michael. Sorry curly.

    Ok, this was a toughie!! FootballerChick43 you make a very good point. I got peeks at Owen H.‘s arms and abs..kinda unfair, but I just can’t leave out consideration of the other parts—kits didn’t persuade me really.

    So, cheers to Owen H. cause he’s got my vote!

  3. Emily (Giggsy's Gal) says:

    LTG, I *loved* that last Owen Hargreaves video you posted!!!  When Owen mentioned Rio and Cristiano were the best dancers and said they should have a dance-off, I yelled, “DO IT!!!!“ at my computer screen.  Holy cow, I would pay *serious* money to be present for that particular dance-off.  I vote that the song choice be “You Can Do It (Put Your Back Into It” by Ice Cube.  Man, that would be awesome!!!  LOL

    Security word: party.  Yes, that really would be one unforgettable dance party.  cheese

    Hey ladies, I’m back with my final decision.  It was a difficult one because of the two “propaganda” pics posted.  In order to try to keep things fair and concentrate solely on the thighs, I chose to eliminate the extreme close-up of Michael Owen’s thighs (good lord, I just about choked on my tea when I first clicked on that photo) and the ab shot of Owen Hargreaves (where has he been hiding that torso?!  He needs to strip more often!!).  I will point out that I did not gather any extra evidence on my own.  My opinion is based solely on these photos posted (minus the propaganda thigh porn and ab porn).

    As with most weeks that I’ve voted in the TTO, my decision usually comes down to the actual camera shot and angles.  Whoever shows the most muscle in the most thigh-flattering angle is usually my winner.  It was difficult for me to choose between a beautiful player for my #1 team (Man United til I die!) but who is also a former Canadian/now Englishman, and a beautiful player for my #2 team (bless their hearts, those Magpies have such incredible spirit!) but who is also the alternate on my personal Finest 5 list.

    My vote goes to… (deep breath in, close eyes…..)  Michael Owen.  He has the better photos and it’s very impressive that such a wee little man can be so hot and so ripped.  The gorgeous face helps, too.

    And I do realise that my fellow Red Devilettes will likely shun me now.  downer  Especially LTG.  downer  Please forgive me, girls!  *Going to hide in my little corner now…*

  7. Elise says:

    Michael Owen is much prettier. With much prettier thighs.

    FootballerChick43, I think I’ll be needing to join you on your run.  Perhaps we can run in circles around Stamford Bridge until we drop from exhaustion at which time we’ll be swept up and carried inside by a concerned, delicious, blue jersey-wearing bit of hotness.  I’m planning to drop right at John Terry’s feet.  But I suppose I don’t really need to exhaust myself with all that running.  Better to save all that energy for John!  LOL

  8. LoveLamps says:

    LTG, not wrong at all to troll for votes for your man.  I had my co-workers vote for Frank. It was, alas, for naught. . . :(

  9. Meredith says:

    Michael Owen!!!! Hargreaves has nothing on Owen!!!

  10. Erin says:

    Michael Owen, Michael Owen, Michael Owen!!!! 

    I see nothing all that great about Hargreaves’ thighs.

  11. noora says:

    Owen Hargreaves, without a doubt.

  12. FootballerChick43 says:

    I am angling for it. I think its a brill idea.

    http://www.realmadrid.com/cs/Satellite?blobcol=urldata&blobheadername1=Content-disposition&blobheadervalue1=attachment+filename=Schuster_y_Manuel_Ruiz.jpg&blobkey=id&blobtable=MungoBlobs&blobwhere=1202833157079&ssbinary=true

    This picture scares me quite a lot. Berndt Shuster could put some more clothes on. This is one person who would definately NEVER win the TTO.

  13. Hey FootballerChick43…in a way it sounds like you’re angling for a kit-less TTO—I think we’d all be up for that!

    <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/surprise.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="surprised" style="border:0;" />  If only!!  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/surprise.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="surprised" style="border:0;" />

  14. FootballerChick43 says:

    Okay. I’m over my anger in the Ballackness part of life. I had to go run nine miles to get over it, but it was worth it.

    I apologize for the negative CRon comment but seriously… I don’t think the thigh off should have faces OR kits beings shown. I mean, obviously if it was between a footballer from your fave club against one from a club you absolutely HATED, which one would you go for? Despite the muscles, even if he had chicken legs, you’d still go for the one on your club.

    Or maybe I’m still upset and need to go run another mile…

  15. Okay…one more Hargreaves vid for the night…(Cris, Rio, Anderson all make appearances as well):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOvRPN3bInM&fe…

    Love when he talks about being a crappy dancer! So adorable and smiley!!

    And this post concludes my Owen Hargreaves broadcast for this evening!  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/kiss.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="kiss" style="border:0;" />

  16. Come on, TFO. Fess up….Rio or Vida?

    MORE OWEN…look what he can do blindfolded!
    (no…not that….

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEhr2_IC7yY&fe…

    Is it so wrong to love someone so much that you can’t help trolling for votes??  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

  17. RedGirl (Mrs. Casill says:

    My vote goes for Michael Owen. I immediately decided after looking at the first one of those three pics. Yummm

  18. KJ Ronaldo says:

    i got to go with my united boy.

  19. Sarah says:

    Owen!!

    Oh wait…

    Michael Owen, please and thank you.  I kind of have a thing against short guys, but Michael is just so small and cute, like a puppy dog!  He kind of reminds me of Michael J Fox in that respect.  What is it with short guys named Michael?  Hahaha.

  20. c9 says:

    Tastey vid of Owen there LTG!!!! My goodness, who knew how sexy he sounds when he speaks German?!!

    Oh and my vote still goes to Mr. Hargreaves <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/kiss.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="kiss" style="border:0;" />

  21. Holy crap.  That’s hot.  I’ve never paid particular attention to two men working out together.  (My gym is all women.)  It’s quite . . . . fascinating.

  22. Check out those moves!

    Hargreaves working out (in German!). So THAT’S how he gets such a fine bod!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dg0AxHnl7PM

  23. Michael Owen is cute….like a puppy.

    Owen Hargreaves is so much more than that. He’s quiet in public – bet he’s so much different when he’s one on one.
    The quiet ones are always the worst!

    <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/tongue_rolleye.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="tongue rolleye" style="border:0;" />

  24. Tammy, some of those are absolutely adorable.  I hope Mickey comes to United.  The Manchester United, I mean.  smile

  25. nicole says:

    owen hargreaves that is

  26. nicole says:

    this is a no-brainer. it’s owen all the way!

  27. tammyv says:

    Let me see if I can sway the voters…<Tammy ponders why she is doing this>  A year in the Life of Michael Owen..watch him be adorible with his kids, lovely with his team, oh and work out at the gym/training…

    He wins..

  28. Speaking of Keano, I have Beach Keano love going on the blog.

    Sorry to interrupt the Owen(s) worship.

  29. Well, there’s no question.  I crush on Vida, but I worship Keano.  Keane wins every time. 

    Now, a thigh-off between Vida and Rio, that would be tougher.

  30. Asma:)CR7 says:

    LucyLu got to admit it is true but I would still love for him to be in a thigh-off for staring purposes.

    Plus I wouldn’t be voting for him as team loyalty, he’s that hot that he would get my vote and by chance he plays for my team lol

  31. Sorry, gals but the team loyalty card doesn’t fly…not in this case!!

    All the gals who are Red Devils fans here typically rate Owen Hargreaves *anyway*.

    He’s hotter….and we can’t help that he plays for United.

    LucyLu—you took the words out of my mouth. If Keano was put up on the TTO against say, Vida, TFO…what would you do?

    OR…if it was Rio vs. Vida? Who wins?

    That’s why I’m lucky I’m a one man woman. Hargreaves for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  32. LucyLu says:

    But Fourth, what if Kickette does an old school TTO that features Roy? <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

    Asma, I don’t think it’d be fair to have Cristiano in a thigh off! Who could possibly give those bad boys a run for their money?!

  33. Deanna says:

    LucyLu LOL !

    Please, give us one more chance! I just need to reserve one vote for my Mikey, Michael Carrick that is. Then you can send me off, if you like! LOL

    Cristiano doesn’t need team loyalty to be voted as having the best thighs. Even his most ardent haters will have to admit that!

  34. Thanks, TFO! I appreciate all your enthusiasm (and Deanna’s too!) for rallying votes for my Owen.

    I think there’s a slight bias in the photos that have been posted. It’s true, Hargreaves does wear base layers far too often and his socks come up those delish legs a bit too far. It makes sightings of his fine flesh even more *special* because he’s not flaunting it at every opportunity. Perhaps if more photos of his bod on display were here, he’d have a better chance at taking the trophy.

    My photobucket account doesn’t want to let me in – otherwise, I’d add some visuals to my argument.

  35. Deanna says:

    Hello, LTG! Glad you finally made it! People here are accusing us of voting only on team loyalty. I’m deeply offended!  wink

    We need to convince them otherwise!

  36. J.V. says:

    Owen Hargreaves

  37. Asma:)CR7 says:

    I’m up for team loyalty but sometimes your team player is the best out of both. 

    LTG you finally came on to vote for your man I think it should count more than once since your so loyal to him.

    When do we get Cristiano in a thigh-off?

  38. LTG!  I tried valiantly to hold the fort, honest I did.

    Lucy Lu, I’ll reserve my one remaining loyalty vote for Vida, if and when Kickette ever features him.  (I’ve sent pics . . . lots of them.)  I promise, next TTO, if a Red Devil is featured, I’ll try to be unbiased.  It will be hard, but I’ll try.

  39. Ladies!

    I am here now! Figures—MY Owen finally gets to be part of the TTO and it’s not posted until *after* I head out to work!

    As if there was any debate …Owen Hargreaves!!! My man doesn’t just offer up killer thighs but fab shoulders and a great a**!

    I think that I’m just going to live in this thread for now on…<sigh> could stare at my Owen’s gorgeousness forever.

    Because I’m always so over the top regarding my man, can my vote count for more than one??

    THANKS KICKETTE for giving my sweetie his time in the spotlight.

  40. LucyLu says:

    Hmm <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" /> There is *definite* team voting going on here! But I can’t really speak since I voted for Carragher a few weeks ago purely on team loyalty.. But Ibrahimovich’s thighs didn’t look like Michael’s!

    You ladies should get a yellow card. One more loyalty vote in a Thigh Off and you’re off!

    (Where *is* LTG? Come on girl, your man has been called up for battle!)

  41. Deanna says:

    Sorry LucyLu, I’m afraid I can’t see beyond the gorgeous green eyes, delicious curly hair that I want to run my fingers through,& lovely English-Canadian accent that is Owen Hargreaves!!!

    Also, the crest on his jersey has something to do with it!

  42. Jamie says:

    Michael Owen.

  43. Oh, and I’ll take my punishment.  As long as it’s Vida’s thighs. Or Rio’s.  Or Owen H.‘s. 

    I’m such a slut.

  44. Kaya:  LOL  LOL  LOL  Who ME??!!  Vote on the basis of team loyalty???!!!!  Never.  I’m insulted.  Thigh to thigh (so to speak), it’s Owen Hargreaves all the way. 

    Where is LTG?  For damn sure, she counts for at least ten votes.

  45. LucyLu says:

    I’m completely thrown. How are people looking at *that* pic of Michael’s thighs and NOT voting for them?! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/bigsurprise.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="big surprise" style="border:0;" />

  46. Deanna says:

    *squeals*

    How wonderful Kickette!!! My darling Owen Hargreaves!!! Thank you so much!

    And I adore that last pic! I don’t think I’ve got a shirtless one of him, mmmm, very delicious!

    I like Michael Owen, he’s a cutie, but sorry, I can’t see beyond Owen Hargreaves. I don’t care if his thighs are pasty, they look perfectly fine to me! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smirk.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smirk" style="border:0;" />

    I’m here TFO!!! No way is Owen Hargreaves losing, come on girls, get to voting! Where is LTG, surely her vote counts for more than one?  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  47. emmetbeth says:

    Oh hands down Hargreaves!
    Easy peasy.
    This is the best competition ever.

  48. carly says:

    A tie perhaps?

    No? Well, then I’ll vote for Michael Owen and yes I’m biased by that impressive tanned picture. Jesus… red face

  49. marmitey says:

    owen or owen? LOL AJ for your unintential “owen” vote.

    my vote… goes… to… ummmmmmm… crap… it’s a tough one. The MO TTO photo of him working out is heavenly… ahhhhhh….

    but, i will go for (thinks again, and one more time) Mr OH.

    Hi from Prague by the way!  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    FA Cup Final – 39hrs awaaayyyyyyyy!! Come on Pompey.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/cheese.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="cheese" style="border:0;" />

  50. kaya says:

    Fourth…
    First you clearly violate the terms of TTO by suggesting people should be voting on the basis of team loyalty. Then you suggest that we use some new-fangled technology to make voting easier and would strip us of our influence wielding discussions that go along with our votes!
    I think as punishment you should be held in a body vice by a nice pair of thighs… like Ballack’s. LOL. OK, no, pinned against a wall by his nips. Don’t worry, I’ll eventually send Vidic over to rescue you.

    Idk about my vote… I’m still thinking about it.

  51. Asma:)CR7 says:

    Got to be Owen Hargreaves.

    Don’t worry TFO your fellow United fans are here.

    Security – Red.  Of course Red Devils

  52. I’m still chortling over Mr. Ballack.  hehehehehe   Please someone feed me a big fat juicy rumour that he’s leaving Chelski.  That would just make my whole entire frickin’ day.

    Sorry,  don’t mean to be bitter.

    And I still vote for Owen (Hargreaves.)

  53. Cesc's lil bird says:

    Michael Owen. How can you people not vote for his thighs? They’re hot! Unless you’re biased.

  54. Cesc's lil bird says:

    Michael Owen. How can you people not vote for his thighs? They’re hot! Unless you’re biased.

  55. Johnna says:

    Gotta go for Owen Hargreaves! Love love love the hair (my hands itch to tangle in it), plus he’s one of my United boys.

    I am dying about Ballack losing due to his Germanness, nipples, or the Chelsea shirt. My reason was all of the above moo hahahaha.

  56. Rusty says:

    For many reasons, none of them Newcastle-related, I am voting for Michael Owen.

    (the left shift key doesn’t work on this computer!!)

    I was just thinking, if that girl who was angry that people were making negative comments about CRon were a Ballack fan, she’d probably sue Kickette or something like that.

  57. FootballerChick43 says:

    Owen Hargreaves!!

    Oh my steak and kidney pie, Ballack lost. I’m going to cry. I mean, come on, the guy had his pants pulled up past his butt cheek. If that was Frank Lampard or your precious Cristiano Ronaldo (whom I still think is a dungeon fag) you would have been going abso-bloody-lutely barmy on us. Not fair in the slightest.

    I DEMAND A THIGH OFF SANS FACES AND JERSEYS.

  58. SB (Mrs.MO) says:

    Michael better win this, he and his thighs are just perfect!

    http://uk.msnusers.com/OneMichaelOwen/louise.msnw…

    these are just examples and tests, I’ll post better pics later tonight.

  59. dos santos girl says:

    MICHAEL OWEN OF COURSE!  Yes, it was that photo of Owen in training did me in, it was just that easy.

  60. LoveLamps says:

    I’m supposed to be working and could be fired for this, but I had to see the TTO.

    My vote goes to . . . .Owen Hargreaves.  The thighs are pretty much a tie, but it’s that curly hair that wins me over every time.  Don’t get me wrong ladies, I do think Michael is adorable, just too injury prone for me.  Reminds me of my co-worker Scottie who’ll be playing footie when his final bone breaks and they carry him off the field with all his pins.  I need a man that can stay fit – FRANKIE BABY!

  61. EmmYouEffSee says:

    I’m going to unlurk for the time it takes to vote for Owen Hargreaves.

  62. MrsMichaelOwen says:

    come on Michael fans we all know hes delectable. That hargreaves boy is nothing..pfft.
    Yea admit Michael is yummy 4 this tto i grant you permision to drool but after back off. Much appreciated!! lol..x

  63. Moongirl (Mrs Sender says:

    Got to be Hargreaves for me.

  64. Pavi says:

    My vote has to go to Michael Owen this week because of that beautiful close up of his thighs.  And of course because he was my first football love and he has worked really hard to get those thighs into top form.

  65. SB (Mrs.MO) says:

    Michael Owen, Michael Owen, of course Michael Owen!

    Great contestants, Kickette, thanks

  66. LucyLu says:

    Good suggestion Fourth! It must take an age to read through and count the votes, Kickette smile

  67. HoneyBee says:

    I’m not a Red Devillete but I would not mind a little bit of red devils each morning,day,evening.Vote goes to Owen HARGREAVES,great thighs,cute face.I would so like to run my fingers through his hair,kiss those sensual lips,touch his well defined body,eat chocolate of his well defined body…….-rest of my fantasy about Mr.H.is censured for your own good-don’t want you to get a heart attack(and some of you are minors so I don’t want to get a jail sentence). red face
    (in)come22

  68. witty says:

    I’m a lurker (love the site though and the commentators!!!) but had to pop in to vote for M. Owen—lovely thighs and I recall him playing as a young ‘un <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/grin.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />

  69. Kickette, maybe you should have a poll thingee (where you select an option and press “vote”) on the TTO to save confusion over, for example, the two Owens.  Not that this problem would arise very often.  I mean, how many Habibs are there?

    It would also make it easier for you to count.  Just a suggestion.

  70. Chel.C says:

    I’m an idiot as well and did’t really clarify.  I think Michael wins, not Owen.  Although, Hargreaves looks better in person than in pics, i still need to go with the Newcastle man.

  71. tiliana says:

    im sure michael didnt go to a salon it was probably the lightin or somrthin. still got to appreciate the hard work that goes on those thighs…yum….yum………oh michael how i’ve missed u

  72. brandy says:

    Deffo Michael Owen – my first footie love <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    Hargreaves is too pasty/pale to be delicious IMO.

  73. Candae says:

    Fourth Official – Here I am and I’m backing you and Owen thighs down! Some of the best thighs around and look at those pipes, yummy!

  74. Two Yellows says:

    Props to Hargreaves for his chest. I didn’t know THAT was lurking underneath the jersey. I’d have to vote Owen Hargreaves (because I like them pale). I’m disturbed by Michael’s tan. I wouldn’t put it past him to go to the salon for color #23, Nudie Brown.

  75. Jacey says:

    Oh Kickette, you’ve outdone yourself with this week’s thigh porn. That shot is yummy. Despite it, I’m going with Hargreaves. He delicious all over. (OK, not that MO isn’t, but—oh I hate being conflicted).

    Hargreaves, dangit, that’s my final answer.

  76. Where are all our Red Devilettes?  Come on, girls, Owen Hargreaves is losing!!!!!!!

  77. Linz says:

    def. Michael Owen…biased or not, that man’s got thigh-tastic thighs!  The picture screams winner…sorry Hargreaves

  78. tiliana says:

    can u people stop droolin over my ex-husband, just cause im married to sex fabregas it dont mean u can get your claws into michael owen

  79. AJ says:

    I’m an idiot. “Owen” doesn’t quite clarify does it?  red face

    By Owen, I meant Hargreaves. He’s a Man Utd lovely with curls you want to run your fingers through, green eyes you want to lose yourself in and thighs you want to…think I better keep that one to my self. ohh

  80. Laura Dagger says:

    Lol its getting a bit confusing here with all the Owen’s.
    I vote for Mickey O. Yes this is mostly because of the gym shots, which i do not feel offer unfair advantage and in fact should be a lesson to Owen H if he wants to compete in future rounds.

  81. Chel.C says:

    Woah, close one here…but I’m gonna go with Owen.  He looks good from any angle, and despite the fabulous toned tummy of Mr. Hargreaves, the face just doesn’t do it for me.  Oh, and he plays for United.  That counts against him too…

  82. sarabee says:

    Nice one, Kickette!

    My vote goes to the delectable MICHEAL OWEN.

    Thighs of steel. Fact.

  83. Paris says:

    My vote goes to Michael Owen

  84. sweet_dreamz says:

    Micheal Owen’s thighs make me wanna *drool* so its definately Micheal Owen!

  85. TammyV says:

    Ladies remember there are TWO Owen’s in the this Thigh-off.  You might want to clarify which Owen you are voting for.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    LET ME FIRST SAY!!!  WELL DONE HABIB!!! BRING NEWCASTLE GLORY…

    and now as much as it pains me, I have to keep the TOON ARMY LOVE STRONG and god he does have fantastic thighs..

    Mickey O gets my vote

  86. Re:  Michael Owen – that closeup of his tanned thighs is just low,  Kickette.  Tut tut. Do you think I’d actually fall for that obvious ploy?  Well . . .  maybe, if the opposition wasn’t the wonderful Owen.  I absolutely must vote for Hargeaves.  He’s a fabulous player, a member of my beloved United, a fellow Canuck (sort of), and he has Thighs of Frickin’ Thunder. 

    Laughing my ass off at Michael Ballack.  LOSER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  87. boo says:

    owen H. cuz..well no special reason i just like his better and since i am one to watch both reds and black/whites i got a better view than a couple of pics. though i must admit those pics with mikey during rehabilitation are something to hold to too.
    so mr. canadian born please

  88. dani,,PLQ,,Mrs Niko Kranjcar and Steve Finnan x says:

    yaya kickette is back
    and my vote goes to owen hargreaves god he has a good torso aswell as thighs x

  89. Kelly says:

    oh my my i can’t get past owen’s arms to even look at his thighs!!

    one for owen, please.

  90. LucyLu says:

    The tanned close up wins it – Michael Owen!

  91. Gretchen Weiners says:

    I’m more excited about the abs there on Hargo – good morning! My vote goes to Owen Hargreaves!

  92. Shelby says:

    This is a tough one, because I am a Man Utd supporter.  If is further complicated by the fact that I know a family from Newcastle, and I can’t understand anything that they say. 

    On a thighs-only basis, it would be M.O., because O.H. thighs are too pale for my taste.  But if Hargreaves had a bit of color there would be not contest.

    Side note – if Owen Hargreaves has his own website, then why doesn’t Cristiano?

  93. kelza says:

    ***deep consideration

    not deep anything else i swear!!

    just thought i’d clear that up <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    Kudos for the timing of the TTO posting, Kickette!  I sit back down at my desk after a lovely hour-long lunch, come to the Kickette site and find two gorgeous GOAH-JUSS hotties awaiting my perving eyes.  I actually let out a high-pitched squeal and had to explain why I sounded like a twelve-year-old at a boyband concert.  Good thing that all the managers in my office aren’t in today!  Oh how sweet life can be… <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/grin.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />

    I am so conflicted!!!!!  I am a HUGE Man United supporter and ardent admirer of Canadian-English deliciousness that is Owen Hargreaves.  I am also a long-time luster over the beautiful face and tiny but smokin’ hot body of Wee Michael Owen.  HELP ME!!!!  WHAT DO I DO??!!  I DON’T WANNA CHOOSE!!!!  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/downer.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="downer" style="border:0;" />

    I’m going to abstain from casting my vote until I can perv during a lengthy examination of these photos from the privacy of my own home…
