EA Sports usually makes their games pretty authentic, but we didn't know how spot on they really cared to be. Until now. EA has updated FIFA 12 with a new Wayne Rooney. They've ditched the balding one and replaced him with a Rooney with a full head of hair. Those plugs are paying off in more ways than one. JUMP!
You know you love Isaiah Mustafa's Old Spice commercials. Chivas USA's Michael Lahoud has a nearly spot-on impression of Mustafa in this promo for his team. It's so good it will make you want to buy tickets to a Chivas USA game. Check it after the JUMP!
Didn't watch the MLS All-Star game this week? Yeah, you didn't miss much other than a group of MLS scrubs get destroyed by Manchester U. But at least David Beckham gave our friends at OutSports an indelible image of some pre-game stretching with Thierry Henry. Our friends at Caught Off Side have the full shot for those of you who get a chuckle out of Becks being bent over. Have at it.
Our friends at Dirty Tackle introduced us this morning to Leicester futboler Paul Gallagher. Must admit, we'd never heard of Paul - ever. That all changed when we got a look at Paul's spanking new Twitter account and certain tweets coming from his wife Hayley. Paul opened his Twitter account with a bang, telling followers that he was off to bed to enjoy his hot wife. He's also been known to upload photos of his deuces. POWER COUPLE! JUMP!
Our friend @bubbaprog was up to his usual good work last night during a 3-0 Real Madrid blowout of Chivas in the World Football Challenge. No way we'd be sticking around a 2-0 match in the 75th minute, but Bubba plowed ahead and earned himself this masterpiece from Real chick. We're pretty sure in San Diego that gesture means 'Let's grab a beer and talk penalty kick strategy after the match.' Can't wait to see her Facebook updates.
Your move, Longoria. Three really big black dudes have been photographed with your future trophy WAG today and she might not get out of Bristol without a wedding band. Better send the private jet. Seriously, Evan Longoria sent this tweet to Morgan just before tonight's Rays' game: "once your done w your whirlwind tour let me know, and follow me! #Congrats." Favre Jr. His competition & the growing tweet chatter - JUMP!
Yes, we've created this Evan Longoria making a play at Alex Morgan and the Internets are sorta running wild with it. In today's Daily Dump we mentioned a Longoria tweet directly to Morgan about the Rays wanting her and Team USA to throw out a first pitch. That's called a power move. You pick out the hottest chick on Team USA & use your star power. Guess how soon Morgan accepted? Guess who has a boyfriend in Seattle? JUMP!
Whether it was the little chubby USA fan raising his shirt after a goal, Michelle and Barry eating a dinner on a historic ottoman in the White House (Michelle drinking a 312?) or a black guy in Uncle Sam gear at a bar, America was riveted yesterday. Personally, the 105-degree temps had our asses firmly planted on the couch. For one July afternoon women's soccer really mattered. It doesn't go away without one look back at the fun. JUMP!
Real Madrid is currently training on the UCLA campus for its upcoming friendly against the L.A. Galaxy and it has people in a frenzy. How big of a frenzy. You have to see this woman come out of nowhere to run in front of a Real golf cart on its way to/from practice. Of course there is a low-speed collision. Of course the lady goes flying. Of course the Spanish media was there to record it and as of 2:45 p.m. EST Marca.com has 428 comments on this video. JUMP!
When you fork over nearly $500,000 for a car, you expect it to be pretty badass. Real Madrid star Christian Ronaldo did just that and the results are predictable, but so is his douchey behavior. JUMP!
Philadelphia 76ers guard Jrue Holiday and U.S. Women's World Cup soccer player Lauren Cheney appear to be dating, but may actually be a pair creepy, saccharine robots with great athletic prowess made in a lab somewhere. Holiday is in Dresden where the women came through with a Biblical victory over Brazil. The triumph sent Jrue & Cheney into a Twitter love-making session. JUMP!
Ahh, love us some Sun newspaper on a Thursday afternoon in the summer with the NFL and NBA locked out. It's true, we've been crossing the Atlantic quite a bit lately because we've become quite bored by baseball players and women's World Cup. Enter the Manchester U. legend Rio Ferdinand. Dude is now 32, has made HUGE coin & has left a trail of road beefers that just happened to be exposed in a London court yesterday. So...much...fun! Details - JUMP!
We've identified the two Peruvian tarts who flashed their gigantic fake boobs during yesterday's Peru-Uraguay Copa America match and they have a Larissa Riquelme-like promise for you -- more nudity! Until we get to that here's some photos of the ladies in question, Irina Grandez and Daysi Araujo. JUMP!
Totally noticed a trend over the weekend concerning our Google search traffic and the name Larissa Riquelme. You might remember her as the Paraguayan 'model' who promised last summer to get naked if Paraguay won the World Cup. She's making new promises for her home country. More on that later today. Our focus right now is on the Peruvian chick who flashed cameras during last night's Peru-Uruguay Copa America match. Go crazy, Internet. Go crazy! JUMP!
About 6 weeks ago we told you about a chick in the U.K. whose name isn't even a D-lister here in the States - yet - but Imogen Thomas isn't going down without a fight. Now infamous for the futboler Ryan Giggs affair that gripped London tabloids, Thomas has invaded the U.S. for the L.A. paparazzi scene. Anyway, she's been bopping around different California locales and has given us the tennis outfit of the year & the obligatory bikini shots - JUMP!
Just a day after we awarded the "World's Hottest WAG" title to little known Federica Nargi, the infamous Messica Satta must have been tipped off to her snub. In retaliation, Satta hit Formentera Beach, Spain (yes, 3rd hot chick of the week at that beach) and unloaded on this blue-ish bikini that nearly caused a riot in the BC HQ. So, that quickly, Nargi has been bumped and Satta has taken over the title belt. It's like the WWF of the late 80s. Gallery! JUMP!
Nope, had never heard of Federica Nargi before 4 p.m. EST today and that's shame. Why? Because we would have given her the "World's Hottest WAG Crown" before June 28, 2011. Now it's all hers. Backstory: she is 21, an Italian TV presenter and is the arm candy of Juventus striker Alessandro Matri. She was a 2007 Miss Italy competitor, which must be like an NBA Draft for futbolers. Prepare to be amazed by her bikini performance this week in Formentera, Spain. JUMP.
Our old friend across the pond, Rob Parker, at Off The Post sent us a very strange video this morning from Australia where we learned something about soccer that shocked us. In Australia, soccer players aren't allowed to have penis piercings. How do we know? This referee takes a player to the men's room, checks his penis and comes out to flash the red card. Video - JUMP!
This is now the third post we've dedicated to Abbey Clancy & her bikini vacation to Sardinia with soon-to-be-husband Peter Crouch & their infant. Three days - three different bikinis. Seriously, is there anything to do in Sardinia besides lay next to the water? No beach volleyball? Snorkeling? Swim-up bar? Could we mix it up a bit, please? How about bird watching or a couple trips to the buffet for skin-and-bones Crouch. At this point our eyeballs can't take much more. GALLERY! JUMP!
You know why our new favorite national team in any sport is the Dutch national soccer team? According to Dutch media reports, mixed with translated Brazilian reports, we can report that the team tied Uruguay 1-1 last weekend, jumped on a plane to Rio and went straight to the bar. Look, who are we to judge the married guys grinding, running their hands over Brazilian skirt chasers? We're just here for the photos and the awesome details. JUMP!
It's at day 2 of the Peter Crouch-Abbey Clancy vacation and the kids seem to be putting in extra time at the pool. Can't blame them. Imagine living through a U.K. winter/spring. You'd be sucking up the rays, too. Yesterday we featured Abbey rocking the white bikini. Today she spices it up a bit, as all lingerie modeling WAGs do. As a bonus, you don't have to finger through this gallery and see Peter's pale chest. It's just a tribute to Abbey and that post-baby body. Enjoy! JUMP!
Wayne Rooney is still keeping his fans up-to-date on the new mane that's rooting on his formerly bald dome. You might remember earlier this week we showed you how the Manchester U. legend's head was all scabby and bloody after hair transplant surgery. Well, it's amazing how well skin and hair can progress in 3-4 days. Roons now tweets "The new hair is coming on people. Swelling gone down #hairwego." BEFORE & AFTER - JUMP!
This one actually goes out to all the ladies who read Busted Coverage. Let U.K. futbol WAG Abbey Clancy serve as a hero to all of you who are pregnant, plan to become pregnant or just haven't lost a single damn pound since putting on the extra 35. You're going to see a baby stroller after the jump. Ms. Clancy just pumped out a little girl March 14. Please notice how a 25-year-old lingerie model body should look just 3 months after giving birth and learn. When you are Peter Crouch's WAG nothing but excellence will be excepted. Bikini shots! JUMP!
The Doncaster Rovers have fired mascot Tracy Chandler because she appeared in her skivvies with the costume in a national newspaper. Chandler, who's donned the club's Donny Dog costume for the last four years, was notified via email her voluntary services were no longer desired and was accused of disgracing the club. Classy. The racy photo that got Tracy booted - JUMP!
Brit tabloids are blazing hot this morning after Wayne Rooney tweeted the first photo of his new head of hair post-transplant to rid baldy of his mane issues. This photo dropped just over an hour ago and Daily Mail has already pumped out a 500-word-or-so piece on the Man U. striker's new head. Full shot of that head and Wayne's tweet - JUMP!
Spanish, Uruguayan and Argentinian web outlets are abuzz today after photos of Diego Forlan and his fiance Zaira Nara frolicking in Miami hit the interwebs, giving gossip sites something to chatter about. Never heard of these two? Then you aren't up-to-date on your Uruguayan and Argentinian WAG rankings. Zaira is #47 on FHM's hottest models list and Diego is famous for looking like a young Roger Daltrey. Diego has a month off until Copa America. Time to hit the NBA Finals! Photos - JUMP!
Barcelona was lit up last night after fans and police clashed post-UEFA championship in which the Barca boys won 3-1 at Wembley. Remember late last week when BC warned you this futbol match would result in legendary fan reaction? Yeah, well the streets of Barcelona turned into mayhem as police tried to restore order. But the real highlight of the night came when one fan went full-shorts-to-his-ankles on the fuzz. Video of the clashes & mooning - JUMP!
It's Manchester U. vs. Barcelona tomorrow for the 2011 Champions League final and none other than Fox (your network channel) will carry the game 2p.m. EST, which is huge news. The two clubs met in an intense 2009 final with Barcelona winning 2-0. We love the on-field action in the UEFA Champions League, but the real action will be in the stands and outside Wembley where the fanatics will be up to their shenanigans. Here is our tribute to these fan bases and the crazies who'll make this a can't miss event. Photos! JUMP!
Some in England are saying that a court order preventing reality starlet Imogen Thomas from outing a Premiership futboler for his affair with the Zoo bikini model could be a huge game-changer. According to The Guardian, some lawyers argued it could amount to the death of the tabloid "kiss and tell". Why this is happening now is unclear, but reports from the U.K. say that Thomas and The Sun are ready to name names, but the 28-year-old player filed an injunction which will prevent such a move. Not surprisingly, the athlete thought that giving Thomas a signed jersey and a 'please leave me alone' talking to would keep her quiet. His jersey wasn't enough and she's ready to cash in.
Guilty. By the age of 26 all of us had/or will do something stupid that would have attracted the cops, but Scottish soccer fan John Wilson took his arrest story to the next level yesterday when he went after Celtic football boss Neil Lennon with one of the most impressive flying leap attacks on a sports figure you'll ever see. The video is quite impressive. JUMP!
