Things We Learned From Being The Talk Of ESPN’s Terrace
Nothing pleases us more than seeing a group of grown men get together to discuss hot footballers, as inspired by our mancandy lust lists of objectification. We’re like, so legit.
Wait, we take that back. Seeing Chris Cohen hold up a tonguetastic photo of Fabio Cannavaro was the cherry on top of our post V-day sundaes.
See how fickle we are? Knowing how quickly our taste in ‘baller boys changes, it’s no wonder ESPN Talk Of The Terrace guests Darren Huckerby, Michael McKell and Tom Davis had a hard time naming any member of our Finest Five list during a game of ‘hottie or nottie’ earlier this week.
In spite of the fact that all three ‘contestants’ were unable to conjure up correct guesses, we did find a bright spot in Birmingham City’s Curtis Davies thanks to Michael McKell. He told us to check him out, and that we did and are still doing.
Anyhow, here’s a few things we came to appreciate as each of the show’s cohorts decided which players were our faves.
- Michael McKell has good taste in manpieces and has an open invitation to join the Kickette clubhouse. He’s entitled to such a prestigious position after calling Xabi Alonso and Fabio Cannavaro ‘hotties’.
- Kelly Cates’ dress was highly covetable.
- We were troubled by Tom Davis’ views on good-looking game players, and are weighing up the possibility of an intervention. Not only did he incorrectly say that Freddie Ljungberg is a ‘hottie all day long’ (here’s why not), he denied Iker Casillas as he explained that the Real Madrid goalkeeper/captain was ‘not his type’. Well, Mr. Davis, other than his boyish charm and painfully pretty face, his pockets full of paper are nearly bursting at the seams. We certainly consider him to be ‘our type’ and have a persuasive photo gallery to prove it.
- Chris C. was right, Paolo Maldini is ‘a dreamboat’.
