2008 was a big year for sport.
We watched Michael Phelps win eight gold medals in Beijing, Usain Bolt smile and dance his way to world records like some sort of superhuman, a Superbowl that gave us one of the biggest upsets of recent memory, the best Wimbledon final of all time (yeah, I said it!), and Spain win Euro.
Yes, this year definitely gave Ladies… lots to whine/gloat/gasp/talk about, but aren’t you curious…
What were our absolute favourite sports moments of 2008?
Oh, how I do hate you
Breaking news: I still hate Cristiano Ronaldo.
Fact: Robin looks pretty hot when he’s disappointed.
This season is going to be amazing.
Or Arsenal will drop three points to Fulham in the second week and just generally be hilarious.
Dear Oussama Mellouli, marry me. K thx!
I’m completely consumed by the Olympic spirit.
By ‘spirit’, I mean hotties.
Tyler is yum.
While the other Ladies drool over Ryan Lochte et al. — and I’ve done my fair share of Lochte drooling/google-stalking, I’m not going to lie. (Blame CC) — I think it’s time we take a look at what the boys in red and white have to offer in Beijing.
Because Ladies… is 1/10th Canuck after all…
Tutu on the right, of course. And oh, look, the only photo I have of him happens to be one of him shirtless. You know me so well.
Lillian Thuram is retiring from soccer. Two things: One, I’m happy this has nothing to do with some sort of scary heart defect as previously thought. And two, I’m going to miss the man immensely.
Tutu’s always been classy as hell and made glasses look incredibly hot
Because, you know, this wasn’t painful enough.
Will Dimitar Berbatov ever actually go anywhere? Is Thierry Henry about to break my little United-hating heart? Wouldn’t it be awesome if Diouf spat on Keano?
A brief rundown of done deals and transfers that may never actually happen after the jump…
