Christmas Ideas

Need gift ideas for the special lady (or guy in some cases) in your life this Christmas season?

UF has you covered, well, not covered because you have to buy it yourself.


German accessory manufacturer Abteil has designed a soccer fashion handbag. Just wait until Cheryl Cole has one her arm but only after your special someone has the purse. It will make her (him?) forever grateful.

But, it is kinda steep for a purse made out of an old soccer ball with some plastic handles. It appears to be retailing for about $160. Not too mention, they probably paid some Indonesian child $0.75 to make the bag.

I'm fairly certain this guy will be getting one for Christmas:

Goat: I didn't think I could really quantify my contempt for that human being, but with more pictures like that, I promise I will try.

LB, it was the picture accompanying this post a few days ago that did it for me:

Wow. That's one ugly purse. It looks like something Little Red Riding Hood would deliver food in.

Oh, Ronaldo. Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?

Goat: yes, that one is the absolute worst. I pray for his swift disappearance to La Liga.

Misantrophic: what food could she even fit in there. Scotch eggs, perhaps?

Lingering Bursitis: since it was supposed to be for her sick grandma. I'd say canned chicken soup and Strepsils.

LB: I would much prefer his swift disappearance to Serie A. I like La Liga and really couldn't care less about Italian football.

Also fellows, please don't buy any woman that purse. I guarantee you she will not appreciate it.

Sarah: fair comment. Spain is much better all-round (sorry, Precious Roy). Serie A is the epitome of all that's wrong with the sport.
