Ryan Giggs Officially Named As The Love-rat Super-Injunction Footballer

Yesterday Ryan Giggs’ badly kept secret was finally out, as it was revealed in the House of Parliament that the Manchester United legend was in fact the footballer who had taken out an expensive super injection to stop the media from covering or even mentioning that he had an affair with lads mag model Imogen Thomas.

The soccer idol’s six-month affair with the former Big Brother star was rattled out by The Sun newspaper, but it was Giggsy’s shocking nature of how determined he was to keep the truth from coming out that has really made him look bad.

After being caught cheating, he ruthlessly dropped his mistress like a hot potato and hit her with legal papers saying she’ll go to jail, should she ever speak about the affair. And while his identity was kept a ‘secret’, Imogen was left to face the heat alone.

Of course she was in the wrong too, so she only has herself to blame, but why it’s OK for her to be ousted and hounded by the press and not him, just seems totally unfair.

But the thing that really made this story ridiculous is when Giggs’ legal team tried to sue Twitter and their laughable attempts to stop users of the micro-blogging social networking site for tweeting about the affair, saying they could face two years in jail. Yep all 75,000 of them – which is just damn right ridiculous.

As a hardcore United fan, it’s very disappointing to see one of our greats fall from grace at such a pivotal point in his career. But what will make this worse is not the fact he cheated on his wife. He could have just come clean, said sorry and people would have eventually forgiven him and forgot about it within four months. I’m sure another footballer with a wondering eye would soon come along and steal his thunder.

But is was the silly lengths Giggs went trough, in order to try and keep the sordid affair a secret and his attempts to sue twitter, that is what will really make this story and run.

Personally, I blame his lawyers for even thinking that they could successfully go up against Twitter, that’s just stupid. They should have known better.

I hope Ryan Giggs can publically get through this and won’t be remembered as that ‘super-injunction footballer who slept with that chick from Big Brother’. Because let’s face it, the tabloids are going to go to town with this story….

David Beckham Wins BBC Lifetime Achievement Award!

This weekend David Beckham Won the Lifetime Achievement Award of BBC Sports Personality of the year, for his contribution to sports over the last two decades.

The former England captain was joined by the whole clan – wife Victoria and the couple’s three sons Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, eight and four-year-old Cruz, as well as Becks’ mother Sandra and two sisters.

During the event in, which took place in Birmingham, David described loving wife, Victoria, as his “inspiration every single day”.

He said: “Of course, I want to thank my wife and my children. Not only has she given me three amazing boys but the support she’s given me and she is truly and inspiration for me every single day. So Victoria, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz – thank you.”

Cleveland Cavaliers Owner ‘Attacks’ LeBron James In open Letter!

OK I can’t say I’m much of a basket ball fan, I’m much more of a football fan (that’s soccer to all you Yank readers). But I’ve been hearing all this LeBron James transfer talk. To my knowledge LeBron is the best player in the NBA (I think he over took Shaq and Kobe), but rather than play for a top team like the LA Lakers, he chose to play for Cleveland Cavaliers – making him pretty much a saint in the town. My US basket ball knowledge is very limited, as you can probably tell.

Anyway LaBron decided to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers and there has been so much speculation over the last couple of days as to where he’s going to go play next. It was finally announced that he is moving to the Miami Heat and one person who is letting LeBron (and everybody else) know exactly how he feels about this is Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert – who wrote an open letter to fans, where he quite harshly let rip at the former ‘King of Cleveland’.

He wrote:

Dear Cleveland, All Of Northeast Ohio and Cleveland Cavaliers Supporters Wherever You May Be Tonight;

As you now know, our former hero, who grew up in the very region that he deserted this evening, is no longer a Cleveland Cavalier.

This was announced with a several day, narcissistic, self-promotional build-up culminating with a national TV special of his “decision” unlike anything ever “witnessed” in the history of sports and probably the history of entertainment.

Clearly, this is bitterly disappointing to all of us.

The good news is that the ownership team and the rest of the hard-working, loyal, and driven staff over here at your hometown Cavaliers have not betrayed you nor NEVER will betray you.

There is so much more to tell you about the events of the recent past and our more than exciting future. Over the next several days and weeks, we will be communicating much of that to you.

You simply don’t deserve this kind of cowardly betrayal. You have given so much and deserve so much more.

In the meantime, I want to make one statement to you tonight:

“I PERSONALLY GUARANTEE THAT THE CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WILL WIN AN NBA CHAMPIONSHIP BEFORE THE SELF-TITLED FORMER ‘KING’ WINS ONE”

You can take it to the bank.

If you thought we were motivated before tonight to bring the hardware to Cleveland, I can tell you that this shameful display of selfishness and betrayal by one of our very own has shifted our “motivation” to previously unknown and previously never experienced levels..

Some people think they should go to heaven but NOT have to die to get there. Sorry, but that’s simply not how it works

This shocking act of disloyalty from our home grown “chosen one” sends the exact opposite lesson of what we would want our children to learn. And “who” we would want them to grow-up to become.

But the good news is that this heartless and callous action can only serve as the antidote to the so-called “curse” on Cleveland, Ohio.

The self-declared former “King” will be taking the “curse” with him down south. And until he does “right” by Cleveland and Ohio, James (and the town where he plays) will unfortunately own this dreaded spell and bad karma.

Just watch. Sleep well, Cleveland. Tomorrow is a new and much brighter day….

I PROMISE you that our energy, focus, capital, knowledge and experience will be directed at one thing and one thing only: DELIVERING YOU the championship you have long deserved and is long overdue….

Damn! He didn’t take the departure very well then, did he? Those are some pretty harsh words. What LeBron did is nothing compared to what goes on here in the premier league. Loyalty is practically a foreign word in the premier league.

This move sucks for all Cleveland fans, but according to my American friends – who are not Cleveland Cavaliers Supporters – this move is a very exciting one and next season in the NBA is going to extra interesting because of it.

Errm… Man Utd to win the premier league J

Cristiano Ronaldo Announces He’s A father!

Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has taken to his facebook and twitter to announce that he is the father of a new baby boy. The Portuguese footballer plans to raise the boy alone and has kept the identity of the child’s mother anonymous, asking for the media and public to respect his privacy.

In an official statement he wrote:

It is with great joy and emotion that I inform I have recently become father to a baby boy. As agreed with the baby’s mother, who prefers to have her identity kept confidential, my son will be under my exclusive guardianship. No further information will be provided on this subject and I request everyone to fully respe…ct my right to privacy (and that of the child) at least on issues as personal as these are.

WOW! That really came out of the blue. Congratulations…

Khloe Kardashian Blogs About Her Man & The Lakers

I can’t say I’m much of a basketball fan, I’m more of a football kinda gal, but I do like the Lakers. They’ve got a really cool name – my sir name is Laker 🙂 – Oh and Shannon Brown’s really cute as well.

Anyways, the Lakers recently won the NBA play-offs (see above) – which I’m assuming is like the equivalent of winning the premiership. Khloe Kardashion, who’s married to Lakers Star Lamar Odum, took to her blog to express her delight for the Lakers and love for her husband – its really cute:

She writes:

What a year this has been for Lamar!!!!! Cheering on my hubby from the stands and watching the Lakers win the NBA championship

last night was one of the proudest moments of my life!!! The whole Kardashian/Jenner clan came out to support Lamar and we were all going crazy throughout the entire game! I was literally screaming, kicking, jumping up and down. You name it! It was neck and neck from start to finish and those were probably the most nerve-wracking three hours of my life LOL. In the end, the Lakers came out on top and I’m not sure I’ll ever get my voice back after screaming so much haha.

When the team was presented with their Championship t-shirts, hats and trophy, I was literally bursting with pride. I even cried of happiness. Seeing that huge smile on Lamar’s face seriously melted me — I will never forget that moment! It’s embedded in my mind forever and I am so grateful for this experience. The people, the confetti, the screams, the tears of joy! Such an amazing feeling

I love you Lamar!!!!!! You are my life! GOOOOOO Lakers!

These two are so adorable. When I first read that they were getting married after knowing each other for only two weeks, I thought they were slightly crazy. But when I watched the Keeping Up With The Kardashians wedding special, it was so sweet and even though they’d known each other for two seconds, it totally made sense and just seemed right that they were getting married. That episode actually bought tears to my eyes, it was beautiful. And nearly a year down the line they’re still together. They’ve proved a lot of people wrong.

Adidas Originals | Star Wars Cantina Commercial

Check out Adidas‘ new Originals Star Wars inspire advert, which features the likes of David Beckham, Snoop Dogg and Noel Gallagher.

Normally I prefer Adidas commercials, but on this occasion I think Nike wins hands down. Their world cup advert is ridiculously good.

Nike’s New World Cup Advert 2010

WOW! WOW! WOW! This advert is ridiculous. Nike took it to the next level with this one. The Adidas commercial hasn’t got anything on this.

Football stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Didier Drogba, Franck Ribery, Fabio Cannavaro, Cesc Fabregas, Andres Iniesta, Landon Donovan, Thiago Silva and Theo Walcott are featured along with short cameo appearances by tennis champ Roger Federer, basketball superstar Kobe Bryant, and a special appearance by Homer Simpson.

The commercial, filmed by Alejandro G Inarritu, marks the start of Nike’s global marketing campaign ahead of the World Cup in South Africa next month. Just three weeks ’till the world cup – woo hoo!
