Xabi Alonso & Nagore Aramburu: Your Football Power Couple Of The Year 2011
Congrats (and Happy Belated B-day to the most Gingerific man in La Liga) you crazy kids! Image Credit: Vanitatis.com.
While the global footy community is full of hot and heavy, high profile relationships, not all of them are as wonderful and easy going for us to cover as Xabi and Nagore’s is.
And whaddya know, at least 2,000 of our loyal Kickettes agree! With the largest majority of votes in all of the polls we’ve ever published, please give a good-looking standing ovation for Mr & Mrs Xabi Alonso of Real Madrid, 2011′s Football Power Couple of The Year.
The standings were overwhelmingly in this couple’s favour, leaving Gerard Pique/Shakira and Iker Casillas/Sara Carbonero in distant second and third places, respectively. Image Credit: Vanitatis.com.
Though successful marriages in general are diamonds in the rough these days, this happily married couple juggled two nummy kids and two equally demanding professional careers all whilst raising the bar and our hopes for footy love last year. Besides being envious of their all-around beauty, glittering personalities and ability to make you interested in a game of chess [Ed Note: naturally, none were part of the voting criteria that we asked you to consider, but you did so in droves anyway. No worries - it's one of the infinite reasons we'll always love you guys & gals], a number of Kickettes voiced concern for all the awards they collected and events they attended over the last 12 months that we forgot to mention.
Soz everyone, but at the end of the day, we can only be good at one thing. Typically that’s dehydrated, drunk bloggers who hate spell check.
So without further ado, please offer up a mushy round of jealous applause* for this year’s FPCOTY. If your of able body and mind, throw ‘em a whistle, holler or leftover confetti while you’re at it because the degree at which Xabi must bend over during his victory bow will be dictated by how obnoxiously loud our celebrations are.
His bum will be front and centre facing all of us, of course. We didn’t call this a Rear End Review for naught.
