World Cup Hottie of the Day is a Player

Today’s WCHotD is Chile’s Mark Gonzalez, who came off the bench to score the winning goal in Monday’s game against Chile.

Prior to today’s achievement, his greatest accomplishment was getting fired and sent home in 2006 from the Chilean national team’s tour of Europe after he was found in a Dublin hotel room with three women.


Hot or no, a player isn’t going to get more than a “meh” from me.

Benedick, where are you? I wanted to tell you that this weekend I touched an iPad. For the very first time. It was really special for me. I’ll never forget it.

@flippin eck: Was it real smooth and hard? Was it as big as noje’s? I think his is pretty powerful. He must spend hours working it. He can download a ton of stuff with almost no recovery time. It just keeps pumping out gigabytes. I haven’t touched one yet but I don’t know how long I can hold out before I get my hands on one.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: I saw it yesterday and it upset me terribly (I am a creature of raw emotion) even to the point of keeping me awake. It’s part of a series on homosexuality at a very slick and obviously well-funded site and I don’t know who pays for it. Girlfriend with the neck scarf seems to be a professional ex-gay. There is a very funny moment when he screams, and I do mean screams, out the name of Jesus to celebrate his straightness as he fucks his wife for the first time, with so much sibilance going on he could etch glass. Watch at your own peril.

The French national soccer team has grudgingly come off its strike at the World Cup and they are getting their collective arse handed to them by the host South Africans.

Cheese-eating surrender monkeys!

@SanFranLefty: Promise me you’ll feature some tear-stained jerseys in tomorrow’s hottie post, m’kay?

Speaking of surrender monkeys, Limey announcer just slipped in a comment about tail being between legs. Coincidence? I think not…

ADD: tomorrow’s dilema: invitation in hand to a group hug/social hour-dinner at the Ambo’s house. We’re all invited, but many of us grumbling that she didn’t anticipate the Momentous American Celebration/Nightmare that will happen in Sport somewhere in between the main course and desert. Do I phone in my regrets, confirm but not show up, or Do the Thing and go. I’m a short-timer, so it’s not a career ender if I don’t show up, although it will be noticed.

@Nabisco: Go, and I guarantee you the game will be on somewhere in the residence. I’d start with the kitchen as the most likely location, but perhaps it’s a viewing party and you don’t even realize it… I would have no shame in suggesting that it be turned on, frankly.

The “not MSNBC” ad on this thread is headed “Gay Romance Does Exist!”

@SanFranLefty: Frogs just scored. Didn’t see it, I have the Mexico game on my computer, Univision.

@Nabisco: Go. It’ll give you all something to talk about.

@Dodgerblue: As am I. Trying to figure out how I can be on a conference call while watching the game. Considering doing a split screen so I can watch the Frogs collapse.

@SanFranLefty: This is exactly what I’m doing. On conf call with management, muted, watching both games on Univision, tabbed browsing on Google Chrome. I’m not adept enough to have them side-by-side on the same screen. I’ll bet Mike Lee could do this.

@Dodgerblue: Open them in two different browser windows, then minimize and resize the windows as you see fit.

@Dodgerblue: Mike Lee’s got a thing for the French. He’s a frogophile.

@mellbell: Thank you. These early World Cup games are making long conference calls almost survivable.

@Benedick: The Frogs did not put up much of a fight today. Quelle surprise, no?

@Dodgerblue: They’re all in a huff about something. Words have been exchanged and players have been flouncing about and striking. Something to do with the lack of camembert, I should imagine.

@Dodgerblue: @Benedick: Franch coach (himself an Italian) refused to shake SA coach’s hand. Even after the latter grabbed him by the jacket. Quelle huff, eh?
@Benedick: The Ambo is one of the most awkward persons of distinction I have ever met. Socially, diplomatastically, in all ways awkward. They have people to tell them these things are going on (I was just there for lunch, and I had not only a seat card, but a menu fer xistsakes).

I’ve lobbied to call her social arranger to make sure there is a tv on somewhere, so who knows….

@Nabisco: I wonder, when the French play the Germans, do they just go all buns up? Do they hide behind an imaginary line drawn up by Coach Maginot while the Germans run around it? Is Marshall Petain still alive?

@Dodgerblue: Before you get too hard on France check your history. Start with Napoleon’s victories over Prussia at Jena and Auerstädt. It took France all of 19 days to destroy the Prussian armies and occupy Berlin. There probably wouldn’t be such a thing as Germany if Napoleon hadn’t begun consolidating territories into the Confederation of the Rhine.

@Dave H: Indeed, the “small person,” as BP would refer to him, was on a roll and out-generaled the Huns. But that Russia thing, that didn’t work out too well for him.

@Benedick: I saw that one too. Scary. There’s another video on that organization’s channel from a woman, Kathy something-or-other, who seemed very nice and pro-gay. She’s commenting on this video over at Joe.My.God.
