I’ve got a fever and the only prescription is more VUVUZELA

Am I slightly World Cup obsessed? Why, yes, yes I am. Let’s put it this way, when my 5 years of free mystery cable disappeared in March, I was ok with it.

Then, I couldn’t get the cable installed fast enough.

And thank the baby jeebus, World Cup 2010 has not disappointed. I’m not talking about the games, though they have been thrilling. Until the 12th, I was excited about the games, but not completely invested in any particular teams since Colombia didn’t qualify.

But then, during the national anthems for the UK/US match, the cameras panned over the US team and introduced me to this:

Never one to be chained down by one country, Uruguay is also receiving some support:

Diego Forlan

I might even cheer on France:

Yoann Gourcuff

And once more just because:

And now you’ve pointed out some good looking football totty for me to look out for, I won’t be looking away from the tv for the rest of the month!!!

  2. WELL HELLLOOOOOOO. what did you say his name was? bocaneYES YES YES YES YEESSSSS ..ahem. i’m sorry. what were we talking about?


    Honestly, I even have a little crush on Dempsey. I really think this sport-induced hotness is exclusive to football.

  4. Heyo! Thanks for the eye candy…totally needed it today 🙂

  5. If I didn’t know better, I’d say you OD’d on Vuvuzela and have been living on the streets for the last 2 years… ping?
