So Victoria's Secret is hosting a model search to find their next Runway Angel. They held open casting calls in New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and Chicago. 10 girls were chosen to go on to the final round, where they will live together in New York, attend Victoria's Secret Angel Boot Camp, and be featured in webisodes on VS All Access so that we, the general public, can vote for who we want to see as the next Angel.

One of these ten? Sacha Kljestan's girlfriend, Jamielee Darley.


Some background info on Jamielee, she's 23, played volleyball for UC Santa Barbara, born in England, and is 6'2" tall. From her UCSB bio: "When off the court, enjoys going to the beach, listening to Coldplay and playing with her Rhodesian ridgeback mix, Indy...Favorite movie is "Pirates of the Caribbean", while she respects the works of author Iris Johansen."

The webisodes start tomorrow on http://www.VSallaccess.com, and you can start voting on Monday, November 9th, at 3PM.

Chelsea transfer ban is suspended

Chelsea's transfer ban has been temporarily suspended by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) pending a final decision on the matter.

Fifa had ruled the club could not sign players until 2011 after inducing Gael Kakuta to break his Lens contract.

But Chelsea appealed to Cas, which said on Friday: "Such sanctions are now stayed until the Cas renders its final decision in this matter."

The decision means Chelsea could be able to sign players in January.

No date has been given for a final decision from Cas.

Fifa had banned the Premier League leaders in September from any activity during the next two transfer windows after they were found guilty of inducing Kakuta, now aged 18, to breach his contract with French club Lens in 2007.

Under the terms of the original Fifa punishment, French teenager Kakuta was ordered to pay compensation of 780,000 euros (£710,000), for which Chelsea were "jointly and severally liable".

Chelsea were also told to pay Lens "training compensation" of 130,000 euros (£118,000).

I shall call this the Diva post!

So it is time for a little Ronaldo round up!

"I have another seven, eight years in football, or more. If my legs give me a chance to play until 40, I want to play," he told FourFourTwo Malaysia.

"But I want to be in the first page of history, the same as Maradona and Pele. I want to be there.

"I know it’s very tough but I think it’s possible if I carry on like that, to win things. I think it’s possible. I know it’s hard, but in my head, it’s possible."

And the former Sporting Lisbon starlet added that he hopes he does not have come face-to-face with former employers Manchester United in the Champions League either this season or next, as he still retains many friends from his successful six-year stint in England.

"I don’t want to play against Manchester. It’s a strange feeling if I play against them," he said.

"But you never know. In the Champions League, everything is possible but I don’t want to play against Manchester.

"I still have the same friends. I speak sometimes with Rooney, Vidic, Ferdinand, Nani, Evra, Anderson.

"It’s good to know what’s going on there and the people like to know if I’m happy here."

Joaquin Gonzalez is a Real Madrid Club member for almost twenty years. On Tuesday, he was going to go with his friends to see the game between Milan and Madrid at the San Siro, but Saturday he had to be admitted to the hospital after suffering gastrointestinal bleeding. He missed the game, but on Wednesday became one of the protagonists of the day after receiving the visit of Cristiano Ronaldo. "I was shocked, I could not believe it," said Joaquin, who adds that "he is a very nice person. You can tell that that he is a good person and has a big heart."

On Wednesday morning his friends came from the airport with a very special gift for Joaquin. A scarf commemorating the encounter between the two clubs, his cousin Aris came to see him at the hospital and he was not the only visit he had that morning. "I got the white eyes, it cost me to react when my mother entered the room with Cristiano Ronaldo," said Joaquin added that."I was so shocked that I couldn't move. Then I got up, hugged him and introduced him to my friends."

Joaquin's mother, Antonia Muñoz, had learned that Portuguese was getting an MRI at the hospital and went to fetch him. "Cristiano told me that my mother had asked him and he could not refuse," said Joaquin, and stresses that the player is a very nice and friendly perspn. The Real Madrid fan said that the expereience gave him "great joy to see Cristiano, but also to see the happy face of my mother because her son was happy as well. It was an unforgettable experience.

By having met forward Cristiano Ronaldo, Joaquín confessed that "He is the best player in the world, the most critical and destabilizing, in addition to my captains, Casillas, Raul and Guti. I also told him that I was proud to defend the shield of my team, "recalls excitedly. He was discharged from hospital last night and is resting at home.

(I think that outfit is from the future, and that it's attacking him.)

Among others, Puma have chosen a certain Serb to pimp their winter gear. On one hand, this is a sad thing, because he's wearing a shitload of clothes. On the other, though, he can pull off pretty much anything, so it's all good.

This is Not Hunty's Year

Milan Striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar Involved In Car Accident - Report

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has failed to settle at Milan since his summer transfer from Real Madrid, and his morale will not have been helped after an incident off the pitch.

According to Sportmediaset, Huntelaar was involved in a car accident in the streets of Milan. Although the Dutchman's vehicle was severely damaged, fortunately the player did not suffer any serious injuries.

It is another mishap for the out-of-form and out-of-favour striker, who is yet to score in a competitive match for the Rossoneri.

Rumours surrounding the player are suggesting that he could leave the club as soon as January as vice-president Adriano Galliani looks to cut his losses after an outlay of €15m in the summer.

Meanwhile, the Rossoneri's move for Ghanaian sensation Dominic Adiyiah is virtually complete. The 20-year-old is set to sign for the club in the coming hours. He may send Huntelaar further down the pecking order when he arrives in January.

It definitely has not been Huntelaar's year, Madrid sell him after only 7 months. He has not been scoring for Milan (considering he hardly ever gets playing time, but that's another story), apparently Holland's coach is basically warning him if he doesn't get first team football his chances of playing in the WC are slim...and now this. :(

if I go crazy then will you still call me superman?

While the rest of the German national team is busy fightin' crime, Rene Adler spends his time on the side being a journalist and/or battling pink eye from those pesky contact lenses.

Although, I saw this photo and my Spidey senses started tingling -- from laughter.
