#ManCandyMonday Sexy #Soccer Player #WorldCup

My sympathies to those in Latin America who were hoping for a win for Argentina. Congratulations to the German team for winning this year’s World Cup!

To the U.S. team, you rocked it!

As for soccer, or football as the rest of the world calls it, there are some exciting moments, I must confess. My favorite ones?

When the players celebrate by taking off their shirts! LOL! So we end our World Cup fascination today with this sexy soccer player.

#ManCandyMonday Some #WorldCup Action with Gerard Pique

Since the world is in the throes of soccer mania, I thought it would make sense to share a footballer with you today.

Gerard Pique was born in Barcelona and currently plays for FC Barcelona. He is a member of the Spanish team playing for the world cup and he is also Shakira’s partner.

He was a member of the 2010 Spanish team that won the World Cup in South Africa.

#ManCandyMonday Cristiano Ronaldo

Had a blast this weekend at the Turn the Page Bookstore! It was so nice to meet the other authors, fans, friends and of course, the wonderful Nora Roberts. I’ll have photos for you tonight.

We went out to dinner on Saturday night and the discussion turned to sexy men. The younger crowd thought Beckham was so done, but that Cristiano Ronaldo was way hotter. So in honor of them, today’s Man Candy Monday is soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo!!

Guilty Pleasures Monday – David Villa

Besides watching my daughter play soccer for many years, my one real experience with viewing a match was several years ago when we had the opportunity to be in Rome for Holy Week. The Rome team was playing a team from Great Britain. Fans were in the streets everywhere, sporting their colors. The match was sold out, so we decided to buy chips, soda and some wine and go back to our lovely hotel room to spend the night watching the match.

It began and then it didn’t stop. None of the commercial breaks or big half time shows we were used to seeing with football or even baseball. Ninety minutes later, the show was over and we still had an entire night ahead of us. So we left our room and returned to exploring the streets of Rome.

The next day, since there had been some altercations in the stands, we were treated to the site of various fans sporting shiners, slings and assorted cuts and bruises.

Quite an experience and we did enjoy watching the game. I guess what makes me think about that game is the advent of the World Cup and all the hype. Like many Americans, I have little interest in the game, although I will watch the highlights to see which country won what match. But thankfully, all the hype has helped me select this week’s Guilty Pleasure Monday! What do you all think of Spanish soccer player David Villa? I think he’s kind of hot and I understand he’s quite a good footballer.

Guilty Pleasures Monday – Colin Farrell

I must confess this Guilty Pleasures Monday choice is all Bad Boy. He’s got those wonderful Black Irish looks and I’ve enjoyed him in several of his movies — from his villian turn in DAREDEVIL (which is so not as bad as people say) to his appearance in THE RECRUIT and THE NEW WORLD.

Colin comes from a family of footballers, both father and uncle, and I understand that at one time he considered becoming a soccer player as well.

Last night Colin won the Golden Globe for Best Actor: Musical or Comedy for his role in IN BRUGES.

Hope you enjoyed this Guilty Pleasure Monday!
