Real Madrid knows that sex sells, so the team has decided to start up its own futbol inspired lingerie line for men to enjoy. Well i mean i guess women can enjoy it too, but c’mon, you add a submarine sammich in this picture and its about every man’s wet dream staring right at you. You want another picture? You got it.
The underwear sets are pretty subtle though, its not like the Real Madrid branding is all over it in a gaudy fashion, no its subtle, delicate…smooth…supple…ahem. God bless the soccer marketing geniuses. If you want to pick up some of these suckers, you gotta wait until March tho. Boo-hoo.
I hope the NFL, kings of marketing here in the US, take notice here. Well, for that matter, lets hope all American professional sports look at this and copy it. This is how it should be done if you want to get your name plastered on the sexy naughty bits of women everywhere. Lets hope they can make it happen. Of course if it does happen here in the states, i guarantee you that the majority of the women everywhere who would actually wear this stuff…probably shouldnt be seen in it if you want to keep your eyes intact.
Like, for example, her…
From the Daily Mail UK
Colombian footballer Javier Florez shot a man dead last night for teasing him. Yea, you read that right, teasing him. The Atletico Junior de Barranquilla player was driving near his house when a group of people began taunting him about his team’s recent loss in the Colombian Apertura championship final. Apparently, since he’d been drinking, this was a bad idea. The drunken Florez then got out of his car, with a gun in hand, shot at the group, hit and killed a man with two of the shots, then left his car and ran away from the scene of the incident. Luckily (for him) he just turned himself in to the authorities.
Tragic…truly sad. What I want to know is, how has this not happened here in the states? Who do you think would be the first American athlete to kill a fan for making fun of him? Or has it been done before and I just totally missed it?
I’m thinking Ron Artest might have a good shot. Its too bad Albert Belle doesn’t play anymore cause he’d be MONEY. What do you, our readers who never comment, think?
In a page taken from the Uday Hussein handbook of how to motivate athletes, the Chinese National soccer team has made an oath to qualify for the World Cup or die. The players said to their country on Tuesday:
“I pledge to advance to the World Cup, which is the professional goal that we strive for. We swear by death to kill along the bloody road of defending the honour of the motherland and realise our youthful dreams.”
As added incentive, the China Football Association will pay the team eight million yuan (1.09 million dollars) if they qualified for the World Cup.
If China actually does qualify, thus saving the lives of its team members, it would be only the second time they have advanced to the World Cup, the first being in 2002 where they failed to get a point or even score a goal in their first round exit.
I wonder what FIFA has to say about this? Is this the standard for all other teams to follow, mass suicide or murder of entire teams that fail to meet their goals? The Deuce, for one, is intrigued by their passion and will be rooting for Australia, Iraq, or Qatar to knock the shit out of them in the qualifying rounds to see if they will actually follow through with their pledge. Yes, we’re sick, we know, but damn do we love drama.
If so, then sign up with MyFootballClub. This website was set up by Will Brooks, a man with a dream, a dream to own a soccer team…and he wanted to share this dream with everyone he could because he certainly could not afford it on his own. Basically, you sign up and pay $72 bucks American (35 British Pounds) apiece and you will get membership in a trust that owns the football club after it’s been purchased. You’ll get an equal say in team selection, player transfers and the overall running of the club. The Vancouver Sun states:
“They started collecting dues when they hit their membership target this week; $215,000 poured in during the first six hours…” and “Four teams have already approached [Brooks] for negotiations…”
This really is a pretty good idea. Why this hasn’t been thought of for teams like the Nashville Predators or some other failing team in American sports, I just don’t know. I doubt it would fly in the tightly held ownership groups of American sporting leagues…but for a minor league team or even an Arena league team, this would be fantastic.
The sport is supposed to be for the fans, why not see what happens if you let the fans own the team and determine how it should be run? We already have millions of bloggers out here stating how things should be run, billions of fantasy sports leagues, why not get a group together and own a team? I’d love to see it happen, wouldn’t mind being a part of it too. I might send in my $72 bucks just to get in on this…and I don’t even like soccer! I know my first vote will be to get some hot Japanese women to show up and kick the ball around like they are above.
