b532da5ad5b011e2808622000a1f9aaf_7Sorry for the lack of updates today. Work has been…difficult. Anyhow, I’m off to see the USWNT play South Korea shortly with watishistas Shigs, forzasusan and J9.

The Daily Drool: Cha Du-Ri

28 Aug

German born Korean right back Cha is making the move from Celtic to Fortuna Düsseldorf. He has been a member of the South Korean National Team since 2001. Cha always looks like he’s having so much fun in his pictures.

Fun fact: He comes from a footy background. His father is (the fabulously named) Cha Bum-Kun, a football manager who was a standout in the Bundesliga and the all time leading scorer for the South Korean National Team. He was voted Asia’s Player of the Century by IFFHS.
