Hello Dollies

23 Aug

Manuel Neuer

How many times have you seen a player so adorable that you wish you had a big ol’ plush doll of them to snuggle with? Marcelo springs immediately to mind. Well, Bayern Munich went ahead and made that wish a realityOur buddies over at Kickette discovered the (presumably not anatomically correct) Thomas Mueller doll and I went to the website to see if I could find a few more. I was not disappointed.

Now some of the choices were understandable: Basti Schweinsteiger, Philipp Lahm or Mario Gomez (I love the back with his little buzzed/curly haircut).

Mario Gomez Front

Arjen Robben seems to be a rather strange choice but perhaps appealing to fans of the Dutch National Team? ::shrugs::

However, seriously, who in their right fucking mind would want to cuddle up with a frigging Franck Ribery doll?! I just can’t even…

Ribery: Underage Hooker Doll Not Included

Good lord, that just completely freaked me out. What’s next? A plush John Terry (whose tiny little pants can’t stay up)? A plush Andy Carroll (with pony tail & arrest record)? I can’t wait for the Joey Barton doll with its little plush volume of Nietzche.

That said, I would love a range of Real Madrid dolls, preferably ones that, you know, actually resembled the players (unlike these). A little Ozil or Khedira with tiny interchangeable headbands, a Sergio doll with a closet full of multicolored pants, Iker and his murse, Cristiano & big Gucci belt buckles, Plush Pipita and his big old squooshy booty… Imagine the possibilities!

      Me too! Especially the Arjen Robben & Franck Ribery dolls. The Philipp Lahm doll’s eyebrows aren’t prominent enough.

        There should also be a Kaka doll with a huge grin, a bible and an ax. I would so get that for Shigs for Christmas.

            But how awesome would it be to watch you unwrap that on Christmas morning? The big grin would be the first thing you would see, the plush ax would be the next. 😉
