So this is what Victoria Beckham looked like 20 years ago … pretty much exactly the way you’d imagine, only funnier.

Somebody break out the leather jackets, cashmere gloves, random-just-because leotards (while sitting in a chair)  and MOM jeans! Yes. Thank you, Retronaut.com for drudging this all up.

More Victoria face (don’t you dare smile girl!) is after the jump.

I don’t know what the rest of you college programs are out there doing, but Furman is killing the game right now. Here’s another nice goal from Paladins attacker Coleton Henning (at 15 seconds) who gets extra points for using his non-dominant left foot. This score helped the Paladins beat College of Charleston 1-0 Tuesday.

And just you so you know college soccer, you’re welcome to send us your own highlights … or you can just continue letting Furman dominate.

Part of the fun of Van Persie going to Man U was the prospect of seeing him teamed with Wayne Rooney. So imagine our disappointment when six games in the pair had yet to start a match together.

It finally happened Tuesday when a Rooney to Van Persie game-winning goal gave the squad a 2-1 win over Cluj. Van Persie discusses that, as well as his desire to get more assists, in the interview above.

The rumor mill is abuzz today that there was age cheating at the U17 World Cup.

A Reddit user has accused Nigeria’s U17 captain of being too old to play on the team. In a developing story also picked up by Canadian Soccer News, the user posted a screen caption that shows the player’s 19-year-old sister referring to her as the older sibling on more than one occasion.

You can see the rumored evidence HERE.

Upon further review, this looks like a dust devil rather than a run-like-hell tornado (Must have been NFL replacement referees who titled the YouTube video). Be honest though, for the first couple seconds it was kind of nerve-wracking when you thought everyone on camera was about to get swept away to the heavens …

No such hysteria; these guys just keep right on playing. It’ll take more than a fog of dust to keep these dudes from finishing their Saturday morning men’s league. Players just keep playin’, ballers keep ballin’.

I’ve always imagined that stingrays are pretty much just like people. Sure, they’re flatter, they live underwater and don’t say a whole lot but other than that we’re kindred spirits. Deep inside, all they really want to do is party, eat tacos and photobomb.

This incredible photo is proof. Taken by three TCU students back in 2008, it recently went viral for reasons only understood by people who study virality and or stingrays.

A more recent Kodak moment, taken Sunday, can be seen after the jump.

We know she’s great in the box, but what about in front of the camera?

USC goalkeeper Caroline Stanley was more than ready for her closeup Monday when she worked with ESPN to cover the Los Angeles Lakers Media Day. Stanley, who is pursuing journalism or public relations at USC, rubbed shoulders with Kobe, Dwight Howard, Steve Nash and the rest of the insanely tall men in their purple and gold jerseys.

Stanley will be sporting her own gold jersey again this weekend when her Trojans return to the field. She’ll do so with a new Hollywood swagger (and perhaps a renewed respect for reporters … uh, and bloggers … ahem!).

Four MLS squads have put out FIFA 13 promos, and I have to admit, I’m a little impressed.

Players from Sporting KC, Chicago Fire, Portland Timbers and San Jose Earthquakes showed off their acting chops during these short parodies with surprisingly good results. I knew that the likes of Kei Kamara and CJ Sapong (a natural character) would be money, but Shea Salinas? Who knew?

Sporting KC is above while the remaining three are after the jump.

It was just a typical Monday match between Chernomorets Odessa and Metalist in Ukraine but it all went cray when this Barney impersonator ran on the field and Latrell Sprewell’d the linesman. Dude came out of nowhere!

First off, I want to commend the linesman for taking this like a champ. He was locked in a pit bull choke collar for a minute there but he didn’t panic. And did you notice that he never dropped his flag? That’s dedication.

Now, about crazy Purplesaurus Rex fan: it isn’t just his actions that I question, but his decision-making. I mean, come on … you rush the field in a purple shirt that doesn’t even fit? It’s kind of hard to wrestle five cops when your mandom is hanging out of your shirt. Let’s plan better next time, bro.
