UPDATED: Bits & Bobs: The “I Need A Cocktail Something Fierce” Edition

13 Jul

Oh boy, it has been a long day. I was up really early working from home while waiting for not one, but two (!), visits from the air conditioner repairman and considering how humid and gross this NYC summer has been, it was an absolute must. So, now I’m a couple of hundred bucks poorer, but the house is cool again. Alas, my brain is fried though. Summers are supposed to be slow, don’t you think? Why is work so busy? Argh. Anyhow, I’m going to drop some bits and bobs that I’ve collected on y’all, then pour myself a nice glass of wine and kick back for the evening.

To start things off, the fabulous torso of Sami Khedira! He and Lena are now in Miami. However, he’s sporting the same trunks that Mesut and Sergio had last summer.  C’mon, Sami! Those trunks are sooooo 2011! He still looks hot as hell. Continue reading

Screw You, You Bunch Of Disgusting Bastards…

28 Jan

What a shitty couple of days it’s been in the EPL. This fucking charmer of a LFC fan was snapped making monkey arms and noises at today’s Liverpool – Man United match. Classy. The picture has been turned over to the police and people are being asked to help identify him. Then there are reports of 3 Man United fans being arrested for spitting on the Hillsborough Memorial, which is absolutely DISGUSTING.  Both sides also had supporters making really nasty chants. What the ever-loving-fuck, people? Are you all insane?! Oh, but there’s more… Continue reading

UPDATED: Complete And Utter Douchweed Of The Day: Rafinha (HJK)

5 Jul

Well, no case of not being able to read lips here. Total dickhead Rafinha got up in the face of KuPS player Pexi Oravainen and screamed “Fuck you, homo!” and when Pexi didn’t back down (and why should he?). Rafinha thought it was advisable to reiterate his point by screaming “Homo! Homo! Homo!”  Read the whole shitty, sad story over on 101 Great Goals. I have no clue who thought this was appropriate music to add but it seems a bit too upbeat. I don’t what the lyrics are saying except for, erm, “homo” but if anyone could translate, it might make more sense as to the song choice. Okay, your move FIFA. Put your fucking money where your mouth is.

UPDATE: Feeling as angry as I am? Channel it constructively. Help our friends at Red Card Homophobia with their weekly Twitter spam-a-thon. This week’s target is Anatoliy Tymoschuk of  Bayern Munich. All you need to do is tweet the following:

@timo_44 Could you RT @RChomophobia and help us in the fight against homophobia in football? http://t.co/PbCOgIC #redcardhomophobia

UPDATE 2: In case you didn’t see the comments, awesome watishista! Finnish Girl solved the mystery of the music for us: “The song is from Finnish singer Jukka Takalo and it’s called “Jokainen on vähän homo” (Everyone is little gay) and it talks about how the world isnt’t always black and white and how every flower is different. In the chorus he is singing how everyone is little gay, it doesn’t matter are you straight or gay and evereyone is their heart’s own boss :)”

Now that’s a sentiment that I can get behind! Thanks, Finnish Girl!  It’s good to know that the song is one of tolerance and is as appropriate as Rafinha’s behavior wasn’t.  xo

DAMN IT! New Roberto Carlos Racism Incident

22 Jun

Complete and utter bullshit. This clip made me cry. Poor Roberto Carlos. This man has been dealing with this shit since he signed to the team.

It’s just heartbreaking. The Russian Football League is investigating. Let’s hope they actually do something. As user rednigerian commented over on YouTube: “In 7 years this is where the World Cup will be held. Take a bow, FIFA.”  This just makes me want to punch a wall.

You Know What’s Not Hot? This.

17 Jun

Okay, I’m a long reformed smoker (I quit before I’m sure some of you were born) and I realize that it is a personal choice and I know that he is a grown ass man no matter how Bambi-like he looks. However, I gotta say, the next time I see Ozil, my absolute favorite player, out of breath or unable to play a full 90, I’m going to be looking askance at him. Your body is a temple, boo. An out-of-this-world talented one, may I add. Why on earth would you do something that would harm it and make you less efficient at playing the game you love?! Ugh. Not loving this in the slightest. Hey, I’m sure Real would splash out to get you some smoking cessation hypnosis, you know. Give it some thought, would you?
