World Cup Countdown: Vanity Fair Brings The Pants

So: We really needed this Vanity Fair June issue teaser photograph of Sulley Muntari (too late to pull the “shy” card now, luv), Landon Donovan (doo rag or t-shirt?), Kaká (ace bedhead), Samuel Eto’o (gold star fo’ sho), and Pato (groom fail).
As you can see, the media powers that be in America have woken up to the importance of photographing football stars in their skivvies prior to the biggest sporting event in the world. (38 days to go!)
North American Kickettes: from now on, if you have the ick and displeasure of running into someone who doesn’t “get” this sport, show them the above photo. At the very least, you can discuss Armani briefs vs Calvins, one of the more important debates of our generation.
