A “Homolicious” Sounders Pick?

posted by on October 27 at 14:50 PM

So says Perez Hilton.


The newest Major League Soccer team, the Seattle Sounders, is expected to announce on Tuesday that Swedish soccer sensation, homolicious Freddy Ljungberg will be part of their team…

That panther tattoo makes me chuckle.

One more reason the Pro-American portions of the country should fear Sweden's encroachment into our way of life.

This is such a Seattle thing to do. We can't get the top guy, so we dump a truckload of money on a lesser version. Beckham Lite.

Regardless, this certainly increased my interest in the Sounders.

Just waiting for the Abby comment.

She's always drooling over that has-been Arsenal team.

do the gays love panther tattoos THAT much?

Posted by Bellevue Ave | October 27, 2008 2:55 PM

I would like a lighter that is that tattoo. With emerald eyes. I'm dead serious.

I have a very squishy soft spot for Freddie- I even sent in a Slog tip about this over the weekend, but no one reads my Slog tips. He was one of the first footballers I ever got interested in, albeit for not entirely footballing reasons (although he was, in his prime, a very good footballer, and if he can stay fit he can definitely be more than adequate in MLS). I'd actually been talking about Freddie as a Sounders signing since he left West Ham, so it's kind of bizarre to be a precog. Also, the panther tattoo in those ads was painted on, the real ones are on his back.

Needless to say, I'm actually very excited. Sure, this is going to be a basically-retired Freddie, but it's Freddie nonetheless, damn it.

and Karlheinz- the current Arsenal team are 12-year-olds, not has-beens, get your slurs right.

OMG I am SO the Sounders biggest fan from now on!

Wasn't Karlheinz fluffing Harvard the other day, on a Darcy Burner thread? Now he's dissing Arsenal? Rankings whore. Probably a Chelsea fan.

@5 - I don't know I can't say, regarding the gays. It just makes me chuckle, that's all. It reminds me of that one Adina Howard video, if anyone knows what I am talking about.

Abby's been going around all day singing:

We love you Freddie, cos you've got red hair
We love you Freddie, cos you're everywhere.
We love you Freddie, cos you're Arsenal through and through.

Blah blah blah...the ONLY red that matters is on MUFC kit.

Still, nice to have Freddie in town. Now how about Owen Hargreaves, minus his pants.

12 will be live-blogging the announcement tomorrow afternoon.

Posted by Mike | October 27, 2008 3:26 PM

He played, what, nine games for West Ham last year? Are crutches included in the deal?

Well, at least they signed HIM. I was worried that we were being treated to a litany of possible ex-Arsenal signings, each one worse than the last, that would end up with Pascal Cygan signing for the Sounders.

That said you’re right Abby, if he stays fit he’ll do fine. Best late runs into the box this side of Robert Pires.

Posted by Biff | October 27, 2008 3:27 PM

I was, until the fire spooked me. But now I'm back to thinking happy thoughts.

Hargreaves? Where's he gone, anyway? 17 million well spent for your team, Jubilation...

Posted by Abby | October 27, 2008 3:27 PM

is there any possibility i could get him drunk enough to fuck me? abby and i are VERY happy about this. and NO OWEN HARGREAVES! he is a racist motherfucker who beats up asians! he comes to play here and i will personally kneecap him. square biz.

sounds like someones still bitter about one particular free kick and 2-1 result that ended any hope for arsenal last season.

that or you just like to blame canada.

Posted by green party | October 27, 2008 3:54 PM

Isn't "homolicious" a redundant descriptor for anything soccer-related?

Posted by uhhh | October 27, 2008 4:03 PM

@16: I'm just saying, he's pretty much vanished.

Okay, maybe a little.

Posted by Abby | October 27, 2008 4:14 PM

Scary, you dropped your meds in the p-patch.

What in the world are you on about? I even googled for any instance like that you discuss and there's nothing...please enlighten me.

Posted by Jubilation T. Cornball | October 27, 2008 4:20 PM

@7 for the win (automatic my neighbor building burnt down default win)

Posted by Will in Seattle | October 27, 2008 4:36 PM

oops. it was jonathan woodgate, not owen hargreaves. now i MUST get both freddie and AND owen drunk enough to fuck me. football sarnie!

Aren't all hot men "Homolicious"? And for that matter, aren't they "Straight-Womanlicious" too?

Posted by yucca flower | October 27, 2008 6:27 PM

another washed out euro player movin to the states. hurrah.

freddy hasn't been at top form in almost 5 years.

henrik larsson is a better player, and scored one of the top 10 goals of all time...

@21, yer still my girl, STM (well, aside from my GIRL, PopTart).

Posted by Jubilation T. Cornball | October 27, 2008 6:57 PM

i still think the sounders is a really stupid name.

Every time PH's blog gets a mention, a daemon gets its wing-flaps.
