What If: Alternate Plans for Ballers
Wayne Rooney and Coleen McLoughlin have been holidaying in Vegas. Reported activities include: drinking, sleeping, pool drinking and sleeping, gambling and possibly cuddling, if these attached photos haven’t been doctored.
Within this busy schedule, Wayne found the time to drop in on the Ricky Hatton vs someone else boxing match on Saturday night. Looking at this photo, we started thinking how much better suited Wayne Rooney would be to another career. If you went by sheer looks alone, surely Mr. R would be laying some good bricks whilst swearing like a trooper and whistling at women walking past the scaffolding where he stood, eating a bag of cheese and onion crisps listening to Kiss FM. Or, he would be a boxer – and a mean one at that.
Through the powers of boredom and a vivid imagination, we then started thinking about other footie boys, and what alternate careers they may have chosen had they not had the thighs to join the Premier League…
