She’s a Beast With A Ball

19 Feb

Tottenham HotSpurs forward Emmanuel Adebayor re-posted this fantastic video earlier today. And I haven’t been able to stop smiling since I clicked the link in my inbox. Moments like this always remind me Mia Hamm’s comment: “My coach said I ran like a girl. I said if he could run a little faster he could too.

How About A Sergio & Mesut Nightcap?

26 Feb

I just finished watching the Oscars and I’m about to hit the hay, but I found a few tasty shirtless shots that I thought I would share to give you all (and me!) some sweet dreams. But first, Sese posted a piccy of himself with birthday boy Pepe (and happy b-day to Emmanuel Adebayor and Fernando Llorente as watishista mygypsyspirt reminded me). Continue reading

Despicable Behavior

3 Oct

I just rolled home from the office and I’m finally getting to post something I’ve been thinking about since watishista! Jenny brought it to my attention this morning. During yesterday’s always bitterly contested Tottenham/Arsenal derby, some (note that I said some, not all) Arsenal supporters hurled particularly disgusting abuse at Manu Adebayor. I won’t call ’em Gooners because they don’t deserve to be put in the same category as regular fans.

Two Manu Adebayor Articles

17 Sep

I think Manu looks very handsome with his new look, what do you think? He seems to be settling in nicely, scoring in his debut match for Tottenham and in his interviews. The first interview says some lovely things about Mourinho and the latter talks openly about how the tragedy at the 2010 African Cup of Nations affected his world view. I have to admit, I teared up reading both of these. He comes off as such a lovely person – total class – so different than perception of I had of him as a sullen, angry player that I dreaded getting from Manchester City. I was delighted to be proved wrong and grew to love him. I think that being at Real Madrid did him a lot of good and I hope he enjoys his time at Tottenham just as much. Read on…
