I cannot put my finger on why I’ve avoided writing about the Springboks during this years Rugby Championships. Perhaps it’s because I have felt uninspired by them. Or perhaps, with all due respect to the Pumas, I first wanted to see what they could do against those wankers chaps from Australasia as the true test of any team is how they perform against the Wallabies and most importantly the All Blacks. This weekend’s result was a tough pill to swallow and whilst it would be far easier to lambaste the team, I wouldn’t consider that to be constructive. Alternatively, I feel there are a few questions which Heyneke Meyer has yet to answer and the fact that these questions are still being asked a year outside of the Rugby World Cup is of a far greater concern than losing by a whisker to an average Wallabies team.
Before we knew it the World Cup had come and gone and whether the champions were to your liking or not, there is no doubt that the entire competition will be hailed as a success. Brazil brought the heat on all fronts, despite their team’s poor showing and credit to them for it. Despite the opportunity to watch some top-class footie, what has always kept me interested in World Cups is the droves of diversely beautiful people who flock from every corner of the globe to support their teams. These are some of this year’s hottest.
Whilst there’s been a lot of action on the pitch during this year’s World Cup, there has certainly been a fair amount off it too. Especially with sports reporters like Vanessa Huppenkothen strolling up and down the pitch. I mean WTF!? This 29-year-old Mexican beauty studied as a sports analyst and is reporting for Mexican station Televisa Deportes at this year’s comp. Last year Esquire Latinoamerica did a little profile on her and as they do at Esquire, they got her to star in a little photo shoot for their viewers. Bless them and bless her.
I wouldn’t mind being a footie player. Kick a ball around once – maybe twice – a week in front of millions of fans, get paid big bucks for it and get to date some of the finest beauties this planet has to offer. Sheez, sounds like fun. Sign me up. With the World Cup well under way and with Spain having being knocked out – insert expletive here – I’m still searching for a little gees to get me going. Having a look at the various WAGs who have made their way to Brazil to support their significant other, maybe be the gees-cocktail I’ve been looking for.
I seem to have found and then lost the World Cup hype over the weekend. I was all stoked for it on Thursday afternoon and – barring a terrible opening ceremony – the Brazil v Croatia game brought the heat and had me in a samba mood throughout the following day. I lost that mood later that evening when I watched Spain catch a hammering at the hands of the Dutch. Whilst I’ve erased that match from my memory and refuse to entertain the thought of it, I’m sure I’ll find the samba gees soon enough. The lovely women of Brazil can certainly help me look for it. We’re all aware of the exotic beauties who roam the beaches in Brazil and those who’ve managed to roam the catwalk’s of Europe. Here are six beauties who I’d prefer to see handing out the cup than that pug, Sepp Blatter.
Here’s some food-for-thought for you on this fine Friday morning. What with the World Cup having kicked off last night, I felt it apt to have the first post of the day sporting a soccer theme. This post is about that FIFA and is as entry level-a-read as your coffee-deprived brains can handle at 08h00 in the morning. Don’t worry, you don’t have to do too much to get up to speed with how corrupt FIFA actually is. All you’ve got to do is finish reading this blurb, click ‘Continue reading’ button below and watch the clip. You don’t even have to stop eaten your Frosties. Everything is simply a click away. It’s a pleasure. Enjoy.
