    Picture Of The Day: Chewbacca Cheers For The English

    The English soccer WAGs are not wookiees, but their fans are…literally! Chewbacca appears to be happy in this picture.  It must have been taken following the first goal of the game by English captain Steven Gerrard, and before the gaffe by goalkeeper Robert Green, which led to the USA’s game-tying goal.  If I know Chewie […]

    Picture Of The Day: How I Picture Africa

    I don’t know about you but I’d like to take a vuvuzela and smack someone upside the head with it. They are so annoying that BBC is considering a buzz-free broadcast of future games. We get it — you like blowing things. Now stop. But how to get them to stop? How about more hottie […]

    USA Can Thank Hot Toronto Model For World Cup Gift

    When Clint Dempsey scored from about 40 feet in the World Cup match between England and the US at Royal Bafokeng Stadium, it wasn’t just because goalie Robert Green made a huge blunder.

    South African Prisoners Get World Cup Fever

    They may not get to watch the games of the 2010 World Cup, but that has not stopped prisoners in a South African jail from catching soccer fever.

    Picture Of The Day: Soccer and Oil Spills

    You almost want to feel bad for Robert Green, England’s goalie who went from making a routine save to sieve in just seconds and allowed team USA to score the game tying goal in their first of the World Cup games.  I don’t feel bad about him giving up the goal — I love that he […]
