FIFA has peed on ENGLAND's Parade

ENGLAND GOT BEAT BY RUSSIA AND THE U.S. BY QUATAR HOW BIZARRE!


Soccer’s governing body chose the risky options to host the World Cup in 2018 and 2022, picking Russia and Qatar as it tries to expand the sport in emerging markets.
FIFA selected the pair during a secret vote yesterday in Zurich. They were the only nations out of nine candidates that didn’t get an overall “low risk” rating from FIFA’s technical assessment team. The Gulf state was the sole “high risk” bid, with Russia the lone “medium risk” candidate. The decision means that the world’s most-watched sporting event will be in developing nations four times in a row. South Africa held the World Cup this year, and Brazil is preparing for the 2014 tournament. Russia, which will be the first Eastern European host, beat England and joint bids from Portugal-Spain and the Netherlands-Belgium for 2018. Qatar’s victory over the U.S., Japan, South Korea and Australia moves the event to the Middle East for the fi…

A Picture Says A Thousand Words with Uncle Elton!

Editor Sir Elton Marks World Aids Day With Symbolic Flower Front Page










SIR ELTON JOHN used his role as guest editor of Britain's The Independent to clear the front page of all news on Wednesday (01Dec10), instead using a painting of a rose to symbolise the fight against AIDS.
The Rocket Man took charge of the publication to mark World AIDS Day, with all circulation revenue from the edition going towards his Elton John AIDS Foundation.
But rather than put a hard-hitting piece on the front page, Sir Elton used a specially-commissioned painting of a rose, by British artist Gary Hume, for the sentimental cover.
In his editor's piece, the singer writes, "This is a day of firsts for me. It's the first time I've had the privilege of editing a newspaper... it's the first time I've switched on a computer, and it's definitely the first time I've been able to say 'hold the front page' and people listened.

A kiss on the Ewan!!!!

Image
Ever wondered what it's like snuggling up to Scottish-born actor - Ewan McGregor? well just ask funny MAN Jim Carrey. Recently he told an interviewer that he loved kissing Ewan McGregor in a new film 'I love you, Philip Morris'.
Said Carrey about the kiss: “[It was] a dream come true. I mean, look at the guy. I have to say, he is a great kisser. As Ewan said, 'When you're kissing another guy, it can get a little prickly. Actually, you had to put out of your mind your own sexual preference and just try to understand that you were loving another person, who just happens to be a guy. “It wasn't about male or female; love is love,” he added.
'Alrighty Then' think we're clear on that Jim or not!! Can you see these two doing 'Brokeback Mountain', Nah! perhaps not! - well, lets hope it's funny!
