Women love David Beckham

Yeah, that’s not a shocker. But this tidbit is still interesting:

Those crazy folks at AshleyMadison.com, who were once banned from airing a commercial during the Super Bowl, recently did a poll in which they asked more than 13,500 women across America which athlete they would most likely cheat on their husband with. David Beckham was the winner (not sure if that’s the right term to use here, but we’ll go with it anyway) with 43.1 percent of the votes. The man, the myth, the legend, Tim Tebow, came in second with 19.6 percent, while Tom Brady (did you know I interviewed him last week?) rounded out the top three at 17.9 percent. The rest of the top 10 looks like this: Derek Jeter (16.5 percent), Alex Rodriguez (13.2 percent), Cristiano Ronaldo (11 percent), Michael Phelps (10.5 percent), Peyton Manning (9.6 percent), Aaron Rodgers (9.5 percent), and Kelly Slater (9.2 percent). Tiger Woods came in 15th (6.1 percent). There’s a joke in there somewhere.

What, no Diego Maradona? Are fat, middle-aged ex-athletes out of the mix when it comes to dating?

USA shocks Italy for first win ever against the Azzurri

This one is a shocker.

The United States beat Italy for the first time in 11 games over 78 years, a 1-0 victory in an exhibition Wednesday night on Clint Dempsey’s goal in the 55th minute.

Dempsey took a short pass from Jozy Altidore following Michael Bradley’s cross and put a right-footed shot from just inside the penalty area just past an outstretched hand of goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon. It was his 25th goal in 83 international appearances.

A native of Nacogdoches, Texas, who turns 29 on March 9, Dempsey has had the most accomplished season by a U.S. attacking player in European soccer. He’s scored 16 goals this season for Fulham, becoming the American career scoring leader in England’s Premier League with 43 goals.

The loss was particularly deflating for Italy, a four-time World Cup champion preparing for the start of the European Championship in June. The Americans, who are getting ready for their opening qualifier for the 2014 World Cup in June, had been 0-7-3 against Italy and had been outscored 32-4.

Italy dominated for stretches but the American defense held and the Azzurri were called for offsides nine times.

The Italians had been playing well, but forwards Giuseppe Rossi and Antonio Cassano were out with injuries. Also, Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli was “left off the squad because of his temper and unpredictability” according to this ESPN article. He’s a well-known hot head so this shouldn’t be a surprise.
