Another Bloody Nose

17 Aug


So this happened. After the Bastia vs PSG match Saturday, Bastia forward Brandao decided to wait around in the tunnel and headbutt PSG midfielder Thiago Motta. Then he ran away like a coward to the Bastia dressing room, with a bloody and fractured-nosed Motta in quick pursuit. Continue reading

So Does ‘Big Hugh’ Play In La Liga?

15 May

If anyone is going to be in Miami on June 23rd, you need to check out the World Soccer Masters match. Who is playing you may ask? How about Messi, Falcao, Diego Forlán, Didier Drogba, Dani Alves, Javier Mascherano, Luis Suárez, Edison Cavani, Jozy Altidore, Julio Cesar, Diego Milito, Materazzi, Lucio, Torrado, Diego Lugano and Alessandro Nesta to name just a few (more to be announced)? In our second unintentionally hilarious footy commercial of the week, Lil’ Leo falls prey to someone’s Ikerlish translation and tells us of a “big hugh” with a thumbs up. Whether he’s offering us a gran abrazo or announcing a special guest player remains to be seen. 😉

The Daily Drool: Torsten Frings

16 May

OMG! Chest hair! It’s almost like it’s not allowed (well at least in La Liga)! Thankfully, Torsten plays in the Bundesliga where you can rock the manliness. He’s been a defensive midfielder with Werder Bremen since 2005. He began with the German U-21 team in 1997 and then up to the first team from 2001-2009.  In this picture, I think he looks like a member of mid-90s indie rockers Gin Blossoms. He certainly wouldn’t look out of  place in the Hey Jealousy video, that’s for sure. Hmmm, as a matter of fact, yesterday’s Drool, Edinson Cavani would fit in as well. Maybe we should put together an all ‘baller Gin Blossoms cover band?
