Show How Much You Love Your Team

How much do you really love your team? Even for someone like me, who pays close attention to soccer and the business of it, this is a highly unique way for a club to attract female supporters. Newcastle United F.C. has signed a lingerie deal with Premier Lingerie, whicn specializes in soccer-related underwear. The line will include bras, briefs, French knickers, stockings, suspender belts, and camisoles. Apparently, they’re not the first club to sign such a deal; Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C. already has one. The merchandise is designed in the club’s colors.

Paul Robinson, director of Premier Lingerie, adds that “women make up 20 percent of football supporters but only 3 to 5 percent of merchandise is aimed at them . . . That’s not good enough. Not enough clubs are doing anything sassy for their female fans, so that’s where we’re helping them.”

What an intimate way to show your support.

Jesus Is Not the Joker

Actors love to think they can play anything, but the job of any half-decent filmmaker is to tell them when they’re not right for a part. If the Rock wants to play Kurt Cobain, try to talk him out of it. Adam Sandler as King Lear is not a great match. And then there’s Joaquin Phoenix. He’s playing Jesus ... Read More

The Mueller Report Should Shock Our Conscience

I've finished reading the entire Mueller report, and I must confess that even as a longtime, quite open critic of Donald Trump, I was surprised at the sheer scope, scale, and brazenness of the lies, falsehoods, and misdirections detailed by the Special Counsel's Office. We've become accustomed to Trump making up ... Read More
