This one is good. Pishgam (پیشگام) is a celebrity in Iran. And his publicist, the Islamic Republic of Iran, mixed up a photo of him with that of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
I’ve heard of political leaders getting big heads at the job before, but this candid picture of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is ridiculous:
The blog Bleacher Report has a slideshow of the 50 Fattest Soccer player of all time. Do not, whatever you do, click on this link. I winced through the intel and selected one colorful character to highlight. If you have watched soccer in the late 70s, 80s, or 90s, the name of the Argentinian superstar Diego Maradona is familiar to you.
Diego had a serious drug problem:
He was banned for 15 months for taking cocaine while playing for the Napoli team in Italy in 1991.
He has shot at reporters with an air-rifle:
Former Argentine soccer great Diego Maradona has been given a suspended jail sentence of two years and 10 months for shooting journalists with an air rifle.
Maradona also likes his dictators. Like Fidel:
Maradona recovered after gastric bypass surgery in Cuba and befriended/worshipped Fidel Castro. Yes, that Fidel Castro.
Maradona is also chummy with Hugo Chavez, and has said he hates everything that comes out of the United States.
Awhile back, there was speculation that Maradona might coach Iran. Why? Because he’s pals with Iran Prime Minister Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
What’s a tattooed arm without a little Che?
What are those two names, Dalma and Giannina, on the inside of his forearms?
“My legitimate kids are Dalma and Giannina. The rest are a product of my money and mistakes.”
Classy Diego. . .
