You know, it’s difficult in the off-season to get some good stories going on as the boys are on holiday. They hardly tweet. So there’s not really any coherent strands to this week’s column, but there are some fun things! So here they are, in no particular order.
Jens Jens Jens, Jens is all you need
It has been said that 2014 is his last season. Get those pics and autographs while you can.
Bit of a question as to why people want autographs. Of course, Dim couldn’t see the point of those really groovy retro team cups from one of our Christmas guides, so he’s not a collector, that’s for sure. But this strand has a picture of Jens on the loo (nothing crappy, I promise) so it goes in!
These two tweets are priceless. Just priceless.
Lordy, if Rigoberto Uran doesn’t look like a young Mick Jagger in these pictures then, well, I need my eyesight checked.
Accidento Bizarro looks into the future for The Sacred Haunches’ hour record.
And Panache and I inadvertently spoke of Bernie Eisel and Mark Cavendish as if they got married this summer – to each other. #BROMANCE
A manly man who does man things
Oh, how we love That Boy Phinney – wearing his heart on his Twitter stream. His hair, might I had, has gone bananas in the off-season! It’s uncontrollable, it’s taken on a life of its own, it could wrestle Marcel Kittel‘s hair to the mat and pin it before Kittel’s hair was even in position. It is awesomeness incarnate.
