Friday Brain Dump

1. Soccer on Bikes!?!?!?  Only in Japan...

2.  Flamengo striker Adriano has been caught up in bad publicity for years. His endearing affection to the Favelas where he grew up (Rio's slums and epicenter for drugs and crime) has put him in hot water with both club and country, and as of today he went to court for questioning. Not to mention his drinking problem. So, when he learned of his obvious non-inclusion in Brazil's World Cup squad, he celebrated as only he knows how (scroll down for the money shot). Now where did Adriano's friend get that golden assault rifle?! Looks like something out of bond movie.

3. More World Cup coitus  According to La Vanguardia, Mexico manager Javier Aguirre has allowed his players to have sex during 2 time slots: before the June 11th opener and if they reach the quarterfinals. After bashing him yesterday, Aguirre has re-established himself as a decent guy in my book. I bet Rafa Marquez would fancy his wife in any one of these positions (hopefully without the dude). As would Giovani Dos Santos or Cuauhtémoc Blanco for theirs. Let's hope they don't limp into the opening match...

4. Spain played their last friendly yesterday against South Korea before departing to South Africa, and were saved in the 86th minute when Jesus Navas' created this piece of magic. A quick note about this 24 year old: he's got a medical condition that the doctors describe as extreme anxiety which induces panic attacks. In layman's terms - he gets homesick. Really. He rarely EVER leaves his home city of Seville and still lives with his parents. However, with youth academy teammate and lifelong friend Sergio Ramos on the national team with him now, Navas is beginning to combat this very unfortunate illness. Spain will surely benefit from his presence.

5. Scoring with your junk    I'm not really sure what to say here. Only that people who think soccer players are fairies who fake injuries and dive all the time, should know that proper footballers bang the hottest pieces of ass on this planet and have more balls than most other athletes. With that, make what you will of this video (look around before opening).
