Gasping. Melting. Swooning. After Arsenal’s 4-1 win over Norwich City – thanks to Jack Wilshere’s “goal of geometric grace, lacerating speed, and compelling innovation” (The Independant) (love that purple sports prose, btw) – things got a little bromantic when Olivier Giroud SLID IN on his knees (!!) to embrace his teammate. That move is smooth as fuck, dude. It just needs a soaring soundtrack and I’m in TEARS. (via seriouslygooneeriffic)

Is former New York Rangers forward Sean Avery involved with Bravo’s Andy Cohen? The rumors started on Tuesday after gossip blog The Fame Driven posted pics of Avery and Cohen in The Hamptons. According to the website’s source, they’ve have been engaged for more than a year. Here’s their words; “I’m not sure if you are aware or not, but Andy Cohen has been dating former NHL Sean Avery for almost a year and a half now, it will be two years in March. And get this, they are secretly ENGAGED!” Andy Cohen responded to the rumors by saying, “ask [Sean Avery].” He posted one of The Fame Driven’s photos of him and Avery along with the caption “How’d they find out!?!” Avery addressed the rumors by posting a photo of The Fame Driven’s article to his Instagram account, along with the caption “#Busted.”
What’s really going on? Andy is a friend of World of Wonder and was featured in their just-published coffee table book (that I designed) The World According To Wonder. But I have no inside knowledge one way or the other. I think it’s exciting! They sure look like a couple to me, I hope they are. And if not, I hope they keep teasing the press. The media needs more gay intrigue, and certainly more out sports stars. Yeah, our team! UPDATE: When Cohen was asked about this post, he responded with, “I love a hockey puck” So, there.

There’s nothing like a soak in the brine to draw out the poisons from a night spent carousing. (Or you could drown because you’re too hungover to fight the undertow.) German footballer Jerome Boateng and his friends spent the day swimming in the Atlantic Ocean and laying on the hot sand in Miami after a late night spent celebrating the Miami Heat winning the NBA championship. The next day he and his brother would be taking part in a charity beach football match for Soccer Without Limits, raising awareness for the fight against racism in football.

A player goes for the crotch in a typical rugby tackle. Most effective. Rugby jocks famously don’t wear cups. (via me-me-me)
In captioning these pap shots of Liverpool footballer Steven Gerrard on holiday at the beach in Marbella, Spain, today, the photo agency Pacific Coast News pointed out that Gerrard was “with an older male friend” and “was careful to avoid eye contact with a topless bather as she wandered past him.” Not sure what PCN was implying – if anything – but it’s that sort of unintentional innuendo that gets rumors started. Starting here.
