Consider Me an Official Fan Now

Playing in Northern Ireland is tough enough, so in order to drum up some publicity, Linfield FC launched their new away jerseys with some fanfare, or more accurately, Lucy Evangalista, a former Miss Northern Ireland.

I was unaware Evangalista was an Irish name, but I’ll look well past that because she isn’t wearing any pants.

I find it particularly amusing that alone, she can pose in just her underwear, but when the team’s players show up she has to put shorts on. Whateves, to mix metaphors, I have a new horse in the Northern Ireland soccer game!

Soccer Can Be Interesting

Here’s two things you don’t see everyday in a soccer game. In the first video, after receiving a penalty kick Costin Lazar, a player on Rapid Bucharest refused the penalty, ultimately kicking the ball out of bounds and giving it back to the other team. Rapid was up 2-0 at the time, but even still a penalty kick, inside the box is a valuable thing and he willingly gave it up, I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before.

Then in this second video from a friendly between Northern Ireland and Poland comes an awful goalie miscue. This is just embarrassingly bad.
