The Late Grab: 04.09

I'm not sure what's funnier, the prospect of DB and his willowy wife on rolls of toilet paper or the below quote, referencing the fact that LA's own "Riot Squad" have prepared for Posh's visits to watch hubby at the Home Depot Center:

"A group of fans called The Riot Squad have bought Posh a seat in their section and sent her an invitation to join them. One Hollywood source revealed: “They are the rowdiest fans, so Victoria might decline their offer."

I recall seeing some jackass on Fox Football Friday last year, sporting the Riot Squad shirt and making some inane promises about the Galaxy dominating the MLS as well as Chivas USA. While I don't necessarily disagree with his sentiment, I do find emulating England's hooligan culture a little pathetic. Perhaps a good ass-kicking is in order when the Blues come to LA in the summer. Chelsea firms, are you listening? [Daily Star]

David Beckham showcased his new tattoo while riding the pine this weekend. What better way to bolster his street cred for his impending move to Los Angeles. Apparently a teardrop on his cheek and spiderweb on his elbow are next. [Daily Mail]

It's heating up in La Liga, where nobody seems to want the title, as Barcelona fall to Zaragoza and Sevilla fail to take maximum points from Racing Santander. With Brazilian midfielder Emerson returning to cheers instead of jeers, and Goldenballs fit again, Real Madrid look to overtake the top two, who are separated only by a point. [Xinhua, SuperSoccer]

Sunderland go to the top of the Championship table with a win over Southampton. It's looking pretty tight at the top, with Derby a point behind Roy Keane's boys and Birmingham four points from an automatic promotion spot with a game in hand. Like the EPL relegation battles, the Championship promotion fight should be fun to watch. [Sporting Life]
