something you will likely not see in america for quite some time, a small club in madrid, getafe, that is looking for supporters in a market that already supports two major clubs has produced a cheeky marketing campaign. in this case the cheeks do not require blush so much as a paddle. the ad itself is somewhat pornographic but the campaign didnt just tease potential converts, it actually produced a short porn movie that would make (insert reference to american athlete connected to salacious behavior) consider donning the whatever colors represent getafe. as they are playing today i can just flip the channel and... oy, neon yellow with a burger king logo on the chest.
i was never a huge fan of ny cosmos striker giorgio chinaglia but was sad to hear that he died of a heart attack today.
he was a prolific goal scorer but i didnt appreciate his style of play. i guess when you are 10yo players strike your fancy or they dont. maybe it was his self-serving "italian" demeanor but more likely he lacked the flair of the brazilians or the industry of the dutch and german players.
but i did attend his soccer academy when i was in sixth grade and somewhere have a picture he took with all the campers. that was his sole interaction with us, coptered in, sat for photos and off he went.
and off he goes....

The television program had too many similarities in character and plot to be coincidental, and when Don and Ed sued the network they won a huge award."
