Ronaldo Hides from the Limelight... For Once

Cristiano Ronaldo brings a whole new meaning to the Corey Hart classic “I Wear My Sunglasses at Night.” Back in October when he got a black eye in the Champions League game win over Roma, Captain Vanity wore a cap and sunglasses to hide his Quasimodo-like appearance during a press conference the following day at Old Trafford. But he was quick to relieve the masses that worship his good looks and chiseled features by saying: “It’s OK, in four or five days I will be beautiful again.” (What a t*t!)

But according to some gossip sources he didn’t feel the need to take off his ineffective disguise off for over 48 hours, not even for a good romp with a promotions girl that he spotted at the press conference. I don’t know about the rest of the females out there, but I think that’s bad taste. I mean, who wants to see their o-face reflected in a bad pair of aviators. My advice to Cristiano: go back to having orgies with hookers, because your one-on-one style is less than desirable.

Chelsea and Tottenham: Wembley Bound

chelsea v 2evertonpetr cech v 2everton
Chelsea beat Everton 0-1 (AGG 1-3) in the second leg of the Carling Cup semifinals and earned a trip to Wembley on Sunday, February 24th to play Tottenham in the final. The Londoners went into the game with a 2-1 lead, but Joe Cole scored a beautiful volley on 69 minutes to officially send the Merseyside squad to the showers in dismay. Petr Cech had the performance of the evening with 7 saves, holding Everton at bay throughout the match. He dedicated his amazing performance to his wife, Martina, and his new daughter, Adela, who was born Tuesday shortly after 6:00 AM in Prague, the Czech Republic’s capital, and Cech’s home country.

Nicolas Anelka and Shaun Wright-Phillips also had good performances for the Blues, both frustratingly hitting the woodwork rather than the back of the net. Juliano Belletti and Alex, while performing well on the defensive end, also produced some close shots on goal at the other end. Steve Sidwell and Florent Malouda acted superbly as middlemen, moving the ball well and feeding the forwards with crisp passes, the latter sending the lobbed ball to assist Cole’s goal. Claude Makelele, who was named captain for the evening with the absence of John Terry, Frank Lampard, and Michael Ballack due to injuries, performed well in his defensive midfield position, covering well for the defenders who were pushing the ball forward to the offensive half.

With injury problems coming to a close for many players, Chelsea look like contenders on all fronts and aren’t holding back either.

Nicolas Anelka Signs with Chelsea

Chelsea have finally cashed in on their promise to score Bolton striker Nicolas Anelka in the January transfer window. Not only will he make an amazing cover for Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou while they are n Ghana for the African Nation's Cup, but what I am more excited for is when he gets to play WITH these players once they return! (I think £15million is a little steep though.)

Anelka is planning to make his debut for the Blues tomorrow against Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.

Blackwell Thinks Posh Just Isn't So

Mr. Blackwell named Victoria Beckham the worst dressed female of 2007. The more likely scenario is that he’s approaching a state of dementia. While touting Madonna, Barbra Streisand, Elizabeth Taylor, Helen Mirren and the Queen for their fashion forward sense of style, Blackwell states that Posh is “in one skinny-mini monstrosity after another.”

But oxymoronically enough, Blackwell names Katie Homes, the prodigy of Mrs. Beckham herself, one of the ten BEST dressed. I’m sensing come confusion. I don’t trust this Blackwell fella, no matter how many years he’s spent in fashion, to name the Queen as fashionable is just downright preposterous.

Posh Confused

I'm sure I'm not the only one that picked up on Victoria Beckham's similarity in dress to that of Chelsea's away kits.

(Think she's subconsciously trying to hint to David that she'd rather see him training with the Blues rather than Arsenal?) I think the hypnotic color of the dress must have distracted him from dressing himself properly as well. Did he accidentally put Brooklyn's vest on?
