QWK KCKS is our way of helping you get your day started with a refreshing blast of football culture right in your face.

 

PHOTO: MITT FOLLOWS THE FIRST RULE BY KEEPING HIS EYE ON THE BALL.

Mitt and Ann Romney took time out from their campaigning thing to watch little Mitt Jr. Jr. (sorry, I don’t know the grandsons’s name) play soccer. Woo!
 

 

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME MOST OF YOU WILL BE OKAY WITH SOMETHING INVOLVING THE HANDS BEING CALLED ‘SOCCER.’

In Ghana, a variation of the game called “skate soccer” lets physically disabled men compete. Unlike most versions for the physically disabled, this one involves the use of the hands. // A Football Report

 

FIRST OF ALL ‘ROMARINHO’ IS TOUGH TO SAY FOR ENGLISH SPEAKERS. SECOND, UH DUH.

Corinthians starlet Romarinho decided to celebrate in front of the Palmeiras fans. This elicited an emotional response from the Palmeiras faithful. // 101GG

 

I VOTE FOR COMPLETELY SARCASTIC TWO-HANDED HANDSHAKE. OVER THE TOP FAKE GUY STYLE.

Anton Ferdinand didn’t shake hands with John Terry or Ashley Cole, but it couldn’t stop the football. I was afraid for a second. // Dirty Tackle

NOT ANOTHER ONE OF THESE…VIDEO GAME GLITCHES ARE SO BOR—HOLY CRAP! HAHA! BOING!

FIFA 13 demo slide tackle glitch. Literally send your opponent into next week. // Off the Post

 

FOR $5.7 MILLION, LA COULD HAVE GOTTEN LIKE 20 ALAN GORDONS.

An agency is suing the LA Galaxy and MLS for a fee they believe they earned as part of the Robbie Keane deal. A deal which cost LA $5.7 million. // The Original Winger

 

OTHER TYPES OF WEEKS: SAD, SUPER, ITCHY, UNFATHOMABLE, AND TOM.

Good week/Bad week brings us a photo of Djibril Cisse that makes me wonder if he’s just messing with us. Probably not, which is scary. // Kickette

 

PHOTO: CURRENTLY RESISTING THE URGE TO MAKE SOME KIND OF CROCODILE DUNDEE REFERENCE.

Australia is more than Crocodile Dundee, Men at Work, and vegamite. I know that. Still hard not to make the jokes.

 

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS IS SAYING BECAUSE I AM ENTRANCED BY THE DRAWING.

Something something AVB is still figuring things out blah blah blah. I want whoever drew that portrait to do one of me. And Roy Hodgson. // When Saturday Comes

 

DISASTER OF DISASTERS OF CALAMITY OF TRAVESTY OF PAIN AND SORROW.

FIFA 13 will not have the Camp Nou. // Bleacher Report

 

ALL OF THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES LOVE SOCCER, WHICH CLEARLY MEANS IT’S AMERICA’S GAME OF CHOICE.

The above is a thing I tell myself, even when I know that access to quality coaching is too limited and most of the adult population wouldn’t know a Rabona from a Cruyff. Give it 30 years. Follow KCKRS and like KCKRS. Mitt and Barrack would if they knew we existed.
