Sammy Hagar Would Be Proud

First, this was linked to in Backpasses last night but we thought it worthy of a full post (and hat tip to Dirty Tackle). Second, pardon our ignorance if these guys are like the Regis and Teller of Italian TV and pull these kind of hijinks all the time, but we'll cop to not being as worldly as we pretend sometimes. Plus it's foreign TV. I'm Alan Partridge is about obscure as I get when it comes to the overseas boob tube.

That doesn't make this any less awesome.

Some Italian TV station hung out around the training grounds of a few soccer clubs. They waited for the players to leave the grounds, then put a radar gun on them as they drove away.

Meelan is above. To little surprise Beckham is indeed a pussy safe driver (and he appears to be behind the wheel of some sort of emasculating family station wagon).

Lazio is here, AS Roma is here, and Inter is here.

Apparently when you sign for Milan you get a free Audi.

Seedorf has a chauffeur. Of course he does.

Ha ha... That was my exact reaction. They almost all drive Audis. Strange.

Brooks said...

Audi is a sponsor of the club, so I'm guessing the players get a nice discount. You might be right, though berg -- maybe even free?

bergkampesdios said...

Still doesn't quite make sense. They all drive Q5s and Q7s? If I'm getting a free Audi give me a damn R8 or RS6.
Senderos should only have gotten a A3, though.

bergkampesdios said...

"an" A3.
And while we're at it...
"Senderos should have only gotten an A3, though."

Senderos should have gotten a kick in the balls by Rupert Stadler.
