WAG Watch: Wear Cheryl Tweedy’s Face
‘Tis a tad “can you hear the lambs screaming, Clarice”, no?
While the gossip is about fellow X Factor judge, Simon Cowell, asking contestants to call Cheryl Cole her maiden name – Tweedy – we’re more intent with understanding the need for white-eyed paper faces.
Not a new phenomenon across the pond, American sports fans have been using cardboard cut-outs of sports’ stars WAGs to taunt the players during high pressure moments. For example, during the L.A. Lakers v. Boston Celtics championship series, Boston fans wore Khloe Kardashian masks (wife of Lamar Odom) in an attempt to “distract” the traveling team from Los Angeles. Prior to that, NFL fans rooting against the Dallas Cowboys would don Jessica Simpson’s bone structure as a way to jinx Cowboys’ quarterback, Tony Romo.
Since Cheryl barely came ’round to the Chelsea grounds for matches, seeing a few thousand of her face would probably be more surprising than distracting for Ashley. Perhaps someone needs to make Cheryl’s mom and dogs for added measure?
