How to blow a Vuvuzela

July 14, 2010

The World Cup may be over, but, God bless it, whether perceived as aural ecstasy or a hellacious case of tinnitus, there’s no denying that the ubiquitous call of the now internationally infamous vuvuzela lives on in the minds and eardrums of millions.

Thankfully — though one would think that what’s essentially a roided up kazoo could be skillfully demonstrated sans operating manual — the world now has access to step-by-step instructions for bringing the vuvuzela’s inescapable awe and/or agitation to friends, family, and utter strangers alike. Enjoy..

Cristiano Ronaldo Comes Out of the….I Mean, Becomes A Dad

July 8, 2010

Cristiano Ronaldo’s World Cup with Portugal ended last week thanks to David Villa and Spain, however he is now embarking on a new chapter in his life. The Real Madrid star announced Saturday that he is going to be a proud papa! Just not the way you would’ve assumed.

Allegedly, his son was born via a surrogate in NYC. Via Ronaldo’s facebook, “As agreed with the baby’s mother, who prefers to have her identity kept confidential,” he writes, “my son will be under my exclusive guardianship.”

The baby’s mother wants to remain confidential??!?! Cristiano Ronaldo is arguably one of the biggest sports stars in the entire world and his baby’s mama doesn’t want anyone to know? Ok, I’ve already come to grips with the fact that he is the one that doesn’t want anyone to know, but why??

Let me preface this next point by saying, I understand people dress a bit differently in Western Europe. They never got the memo that bathing suits could be longer than 6 inches or that males don’t need to shave their entire body in order to be a man. I also admit, I don’t know much about the family values of the Portuguese. It may be that having children by the time you’re 25 is so important that tons of guys are trying to buy theirs without actually being in a relationship. With that being said, c’mon.

Kim Kardashian and Cristiano Ronaldo are a couple…

And it’s a official, according to Perez Hilton. While it’s certainly disheartening that my chances with Kim have now apparently been shot down, at least, as Perez says, this is still quite an upgrade from Reggie. Why? Money, obviously.

Absent endorsements, Real Madrid’s, Madeira born Winger rakes in close to $18 million annually. The sum of Bush’s salary in three of his four years with the Saints doesn’t eclipse that amount, so I’m confident Kim should feel well taken care of.  Good timing, too, given that Ronaldo is about to star on the sports world’s biggest stage: This summer’s 2010 World Cup.

Let’s just hope Ronaldo’s newly acquired assets aren’t such a distraction that they contribute to a paltry pitch performance…

No, not our Football, nearly everyone else’s.  And it’s not technically a fortnight I suppose, closer to a month really, but I’m a sucker for alliteration.  Make the jump to see what’s on tap in the coming weeks, one of the most saturated periods for quality soccer in recent memory.
