Getafe are the kings of Europe


What does a fast food chain responsible for rising cholesterol levels in America and a physically demanding sport have in common?



Say hola to Getafe CF's new kits for the 2009/10 season made by Joma and sponsored by hamburgers. The combination of french fries and football seems bizarre, but the company tries to draw similarities by saying how "Burger King's philosophy of 'fun, fidelity and authenticity' identifies with the world of football, especially with 'the spirit of Getafe and their unconditional passion'" Really. I thought their philosophy was just "grease, grease, and more grease". Is it time to make a bad Cron joke?

And just when you thought they couldn't get worse...


They get even better!


Unlike traditional sponsorship deals that simply display the company's logo on the front of the shirt, the ever-so-innovative fast food joint went the extra step to include their mascot's face on the inside as well. Players lifting their shirts and giving us a flash of their yummy torsos just got even more delicious!

These are the instructions players are expected to follow during a goal celebration (Click to enlarge)


Don't laugh. This is GENIUS, just admit it

Abby Wambach Scores 100th Career Goal in Hometown As U.S. Women Defeats Canada 1-0

ROCHESTER, New York (July 19, 2009) – Abby Wambach scored her 100th career goal in her hometown to lead the U.S. Women’s National Team to a 1-0 victory against Canada in front of 8,443 wildly appreciative fans at Marina Auto Stadium.

Wambach, who was a high school All-American at Our Lady of Mercy in Rochester, becomes the ninth woman in soccer history to score 100 career international goals, and the fifth American, joining Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (129), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100). Wambach’s 100th goal comes in just her 129th career match, giving her the best goals-to-games ratio in U.S. history.

The milestone comes one year and three days after Wambach broke her left leg in the USA’s final tune up for the 2008 Olympics. It was Wambach’s first international goal since the injury and makes her the second U.S. players to score her 100th goal in Rochester after Hamm became the first in 1998.
