Strap on the Old, um, Feedbag and Check Out 'Footballers Wives'

If you haven't already been watching the british import Footballers Wives, then it might be time to finally pop for premium cable. Of course the "football" here means "soccer", for you nonmetropolitan types. Thanks to our man Tim Goodman, the TV writer for the San Francisco Chronicle, we discovered that the season 3 premeire was Sunday and checked it out. And we have to say, we're a fan. Of course, when it comes to European soccer, it's hard to top real life. But Footballers Wives manages to do it. Writes Goodman:

Hard to imagine any primetime soaps here — "Grey's Anatomy" included — attempt something like this: A new star on the soccer team turns to his hot Bollywood wife in a sexy moment and asks her, coyly, what happens to boys who are bad. She, in turn, pulls out a huge strap-on. "They get punished," she says.

OK then.

You know what they say — in the TV ratings game, as in life, it's tough to beat a strap-on.
