Tim Howard: Supporting the Everton Ladies
Given the mayhem that ensued when he did this, it’s probably better that Timmy Howard covers up for Everton Ladies celebration of the new FA Women’s Super League. Image of Tim and Everton keeper Rachel Brown via everton fc.
The last time a Kickette staff member attempted to set foot on grass without a safety harness and/or assistant, she suffered an excruciating panic attack due to heel sinkage and had to be resuscitated by a nubile young park keeper who just happened to be standing by. We get allergies, you see.
However, these disabilities do not preclude us from admiring the prowess of female soccer players, who, with their on pitch endeavours not only put our ‘athletic’ inclinations to shame but may have perfected the most ingenious technique of meeting hot ‘ballers yet.
If you just happened to be passing Liverpool County FA HQ yesterday, you would have probably run into the delicious hunk of manmeat that is goalkeeper Tim Howard (top), who was in attendance to celebrate Everton Ladies entry into the newly launched Women’s Super League.
He had this to say to the Everton FC website:
Women’s football is fantastic and I think all you have to do is look at the result from the national side last week – they beat my home country!
There are so many little girls going out and watching their idols play – it’s a family friendly game and it’s really good to see.
The fact that they are not forced to go in goal and don the gloves and the shirt – they are excited to do it and dive around and get muddy – that’s what I do everyday!
Oh, and you do it so well, Tim.
Inappropriate leching aside, we think this is great news and will be keeping half an eye on the WSL when it kicks off with a storming Arsenal Ladies vs. Chelsea Ladies fixture on Wednesday 13th April. The match will also be screened live on ESPN UK. Will you be watching, peeps?
