While Chelsea is officially into the 2012 UEFA Champions League finals, there's still business to settle between Real Madrid & FC Bayern Munich. Bayern holds a 2-1 lead in the first leg of the semifinals match (Wedneday, April 25, 2:45 p.m. ET | Fox Soccer Channel). Cristiano Ronaldo says his team will overcome the one-goal lead. "It's a big game [on Wednesday] and we're going to win it because we're playing in front of our fans," he told reporters. JUMP!
Everyone gets all crazy over inadvertent porn these days. Guilty as charged. Usually this sh*t is isolated to a few blogs and is forgotten two hours later. But when that inadvertent porn is on your Spanish sports newspaper, it creates headlines around the world. You see that cover (left)? Look closely. What do you see over Messi's right shoulder? One of the best ever, right? It goes straight into the hall of fame. JUMP!
Ever go to a NYC strip club and ask the beautiful ladies where their homeland is on a globe? 7 out of 10 will be from Ukraine. Not kidding. Lots of 'novas in those clubs. Which brings us to the UEFA Euro 2012 taking place this summer in the former piece of the Soviet empire. Yes, we've checked. There will be cheerleaders at the Euro. And they'll all be hot. And if there is a country in Europe that knows cheerleaders it's the Ukraine. The place is crawling. JUMP!
You know, usually we're of the mind that soccer players are pussies who claim to run for like 80 minutes but really stand around for like 15 of those minutes just watching some tool kick the ball back and forth with another tool. Then we watched APOEL's Paulo Jorge take a teammates melon to the mouth. The result: teeth just flying around the pitch. Jorge's team got drilled, too. JUMP!
Via: FIVE Hibs fans have been arrested after trouble following last month’s Scottish Cup match against Ayr United saw one man lose an ear. There was “serious violent disorder” at Glasgow Central Station after the match, with one man taken to hospital and the severed body part found. Detective Inspector Grant Cathcart said “Football-related antisocial behaviour will not be tolerated and we will continue to work closely with all Scottish forces to take action.”
Of course you didn't realize there was a Mexico vs. Canada Olympic qualifier this weekend at Livestrong Sporting Park in K.C. The useless news: Mexico won the match, 3-1. The more interesting tidbit from this game: some Mexico fan one-punch KO'd a couple of Honduras bros in the best one-sided fan fight of the weekend. Wait, what were Honduras fans doing at a Canada-Mexico match? It was a doubleheader. Honduras faced El Salvador. JUMP!
Who you got in this fight? Crazy Muslims starting sh*t with Diego Maradona's WAG? Or Diego Maradona and his batsh*t crazy mustache going into the crowd last night at a stadium in the United Arab Emirates? You see, Diego has seen his share of soccer fan fights over the years. Just think of those wars in the Italian Serie A league. And who knows when homeboy is jacked up on coke. Wrong move, UAE WAG hecklers. Diego is coming for your asses. JUMP!
Cristiano Ronaldo's WAG Irina Shayk spent the weekend in Miami because that's what hot chicks do with their girlfriends on Sweet 16 weekend. You know how all your 'cool' buddies at work get fired up about going to Vegas for #1 vs. #16 games on the first weekend of March Madness? We hear that Euro WAGs consider Sweet 16 weekend their time to 'get away' and act like fools. Our spies tell us that Shayk had a OSU-Louisville-UK-UNC moneyline parlay that got busted. JUMP!

Watch closely because you're about to see the biggest thug move in soccer history. JUMP!
So Real Madrid played Real Betis this weekend and, of course, Madrid won the game thanks to a two-goal day from Cristiano Ronaldo in a 3-2 victory. Blah, blah, blah. Of course we're not going to get into the intricacies of international soccer because you guys have like 3 minutes of jerking off time at work. Let's cut to the chase, C Ron scores a goal and a Betis fan starts grabbing his junk. Suck this, Ronaldo. JUMP!
We thought it was a prerequisite for world-class soccer players to have model girlfriends. Well, Atalanta winger Ezequiel Schelotto just thumbed his nose at the rules. He broke up with his model girlfriend, Mariana Diarco, but get a load of the reason why. His family deemed her "too sexy." Apparently, they were just tired of seeing her naked body everywhere. Well, they can go to hell. We like her naked body.JUMP!
Two big questions going around the BC office today. (1.) Is that really Alex Morgan in the bodpainted bikini for Sports Illustrated? (2.) If it is, did she really need airbrushed to that extreme? Don't get us wrong, there are other questions like "What lucky soul was given the job of painting that region?" Anyway, the Internet is freaking out today over the Team USA smokeshow and her upcoming appearance in the SI swimsuit issue. JUMP!
Gotta admit that we'd never heard of hot German chick Lena Gercke until this afternoon when she came into our lives via her new work on the cover of GQ Germany. The model and her Real Madrid futbol playing boyfriend Sami Khedira. He's a 24-year-old German national playing midfield for Madrid. Lena is 23, won the 2006 Germany's Next Topmodel competition and is traveling the world modeling bras & underwear. JUMP!
Some Egyptians have taken soccer hooliganism to a whole new level. By this time there are probably more than 100 people dead after fans of Al-Masry and Al-Ahly rushed the field throwing stones and sticks following the teams' match Wednesday night. More than 1,000 are injured. Not even the players were safe. We're talking about some crazy shit. Here's how it all got started. Check the video!
Via: Phil Gannon, 58, was caught on camera apparently aiming abuse at Patrice Evra during the match against Manchester United. Police are still reviewing the footage and yesterday released the him on bail after questioning. The father also wrote on Facebook that his interests include 'inter-continental rioting' and 'global regime change'. And d-bag politicians want to enact SOPA. You want to kill off screencappers? They're free police investigators.
Usually British people are normally pail but in this case Sir Alex Ferguson looks either frost bitten or sunburned beyond belief. Manchester United met Arsenal at Emirates Stadium where these two bitter rivals faced off. A Manchester United player was carried off on a stretcher after a his ankle bent 90 degrees. Video of Valencia scoring an amazing header goal to end the first half after the JUMP!
Let's face it, football is going to dominate your Sunday viewing schedule thanks to a 11 a.m. EST match featuring Manchester U. vs. Arsenal on Fox which leads in nicely to CBS coverage of Patriots-Ravens at 3, followed by 49ers-Giants on Fox at 6:30. Of course you know the Man U. & Gunners rivalry is legendary, going back at least a century. There is, however, another battle between these teams. The WAG War. Who has the hotter WAGs? You make the call. JUMP!
We've got another hot soccer WAG for you and you probably already know her. She's pop star Shakira. You know, the chick with the ass not named J Lo . Unfortunately for you, she's getting hitched to F.C. Barcelona defenseman Gerard Pique . Somehow, their relationship floated largely under the radar, but no more! Here are the details and a nice little gallery of Pique's future wife just for you. Check it!
There's something wrong when one of the world's hottest women can't get a front-row seat to a second-rate basketball game. Wouldn't you say? Irina Shayk and fiancee Cristiano Ronaldo had to sit in the second row when they went to see Real Madrid play F.C. Barcelona in a nail-biter last week. What the hell is that? Fortunately for sports hottest power couple the result was better than when Ronaldo's team played Barca in soccer. Check it!
While Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is off being his controversial self, saying La Liga is a superior league to the English Premier League, is fiancee, model Irina Shayk is doing God's work.

What is Manchester United without Wayne Rooney? They're probably no better than the last place Blackburn Rovers... or so it seems. The Red Devils lost to the Rovers after Sir Alex Ferguson benched Rooney for -- get this -- going out to dinner with his wife and a couple teammates. You don't eat no dinner here, Rooney! So says a dude with a Sir in front of his name! Here are the details of this unfortunate incident. Check it!
We leave Matt The Screencapper by himself this weekend and wouldn't you know it his head is squarely up the ass of the NFL and ridiculous college bowl games. Meanwhile, WAGs Aida Yespica and Claudia Galanti are STILL hanging on Miami Beach. These broads might as well get citizenship. Out of 26 days this month there have probably been 3 days they haven't been on the beach. Guess who was in a bikini for Christmas? Galanti. A blue one. JUMP!
Barcelona forward David Villa broke his leg in a Club World Cup match with Al Sadd. The injury will require surgery and keep the Spaniard on the shelf for up to five months, leaving his status for the European Championships in jeopardy. And, if you're not a soccer fan, but you are a fan of gruesome injuries, then we've got something for you too. You probably don't want to watch on your iPhone while snapping chicken wings. You've been warned. Check it!
We're about to get out of her for the weekend, but not before this gaffe from ESPN gets posted. An intern better get his/her resume together. That's a Barcelona logo on the right. One of you soccer dorks might be able to fill us in on what that is on the left, but from our Google Image searching, it doesn't look like a Man. U. logo. Go ahead, destroy us in the comments section as being idiots. It's going to be slow sports weekend. Direct all hate mail to: email@example.com
The hottest WAG in the world has finally shed her cloths. We are, of course, talking about Cristiano Ronaldo's fiancee and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Irina Shayk. Her old man was just named a finalist for the Ballon d’Or, but Shayk has made us completely forget about that with her shoot for Germaine De Capuccini Skin Care. Guess what? We've gathered the photos for you right here. Check it!
It's that time of year when WAG bikini galleries start to pop up from the shores of Australia & South America. So imagine our shock when Keith in Charlotte sent us a link to Venezuelan Aida Yespica (flowery bikini) & fellow WAG Paraguayan Claudia Galanti soaking up rays yesterday in Miami. Yespica (was) a BC favorite thanks to her penchant to pick fights with other WAGs. Um, what's that in your hand. We've moved on....to Galanti! Ass shots! JUMP!
You've heard the name Eva Amurri via her pole work on Californication and the name Susan Sarandon. Yeah, it's her daughter. Anyway, Amurri last weekend married MLS analyst Kyle Martino. The two lovebirds are on their honeymoon and all Martino wanted to do yesterday was drink fruity drinks, admire his new wife's insane rack in a bikini and watch soccer. Instead he tweeted a pic of his wife watching the NFL. JUMP!
Real Madrid stud Cristiano Ronaldo today took home the European Golden Shoe for scoring the most goals in Liga play. He topped rival Lionel Messi by nine goals for the title, scoring 11 in his final four games while Messi was silent. While that surge may be awfully impressive, it isn't nearly as impressive as what Ronaldo's done off the field. We speak, of course, of his girlfriend, Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Irina Shayk. Um, check her out for yourself!
The UK tabloids are on fire today with news that Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli was spotted on a secret date with Nuts (among others) model Holly Henderson. Here in the stakes it's the equivalent of Rob Gronkowski taking a photo with @XXXBibiJones. Balotelli is 21. Henderson checks in at 32FF and 32-years-old. As an added bonus, Balotelli has a girlfriend, or at least he did last week. Ballotelli is our new Italian futbol hero. JUMP!
We've got an update on the world's hottest WAG Ilary Blasi. The last time we saw her she was playing paddleball on the beach, looking smoking hot in a black and white bikini. More recently, she appeared on the Italian gossip show Verissimo. What was she doing? Other than looking smoking hot, we really don't know. We don't speak Italian. The important thing here is the update. And by update, we mean gallery of a hot-ass chick. Check it!
And here's our train wreck video of the day! If you don't like soccer, well... here's some more fuel for your fire. If you are a soccer fan, then you should probably make sure stuff like this doesn't surface again. Here's video of Celta's Fabián Orellana, FC Barcelona's Alexis Sánchez, and Udinese's Mauricio Isla in an above-ground pool trying to sing a Backstreet Boys' song. If we didn't know they were soccer players, we'd be pretty sure this was a gay porn. JUMP!
So the boys with the Sandefjord club in Norway the other day had some fun at the expense of some junior goalies who happened to lose a bet with the veteran goaltenders. Somebody would be doing naked stretches. Can you tell who the losers are? Would this fly with the Jets or Patriots or the Jaguars? Not a chance. Think Blaine Gabbert is dropping trou for the amusement of Maurice Jones-Drew? Norway, where public dong is punishment. (via Kickette]
Leryn Franco, the 2006 Miss Paraguay runner-up, first wowed us during the 2008 Olympics where she competed in javelin.

We've got the dirty details of her breakup and some sexy photos to boot. Check it!
It's one of the more cryptic famous eBay listings we've come across over the the last three months. The listing, via Ryan P. at Beverly Hills Porsche, won't name David Beckham directly, but a Google search reveals that this 2008 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet used to belong to the washed up MLS stud. Known around Beverly Hills as the Batmobile, it originally sold this summer for $227,000 to some Middle Eastern movie legend. JUMP!
Fulham FC's Philippe Senderos is a tough defender. Newcastle United's Joey Barton is a great goal scorer. But ask Senderos about slowing Barton and Senderos will reveal something crazy -- Barton is going to come in your face. All over it, probably. Take a look at the video where he reveals Barton's secret. JUMP!
It's a story that has all of Argentina on edge. Did Lionel Messi actually run off this summer to Ibiza and marry some chick named Antonella Roccuzzo? There's some radio dude down in Argentina tweeting about it and claiming he'll close his Twitter account if the report is false. What we do know is that Lionel and his (wife?) were photographed on a yacht the other day and both were wearing rings on the traditional wedding ring finger. The Messi camp is denying this story. JUMP!
