Summit Up 7-8-10: Runnin’ nude for the team

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that’s still sorta following this World Cup action. Apparently it’s gotten down to the finals, and we’re pretty sure the Netherlands is in it, but we’re not sure who else. One thing we do know for sure is that Paraguay is out, and that means lingerie model Larissa Riquelme isn’t going to run nude through the streets, which is what she promised to do if Paraguay won the World Cup.

What is it about the World Cup that makes people go crazy in so many ways? Sure, we like the Blue Goose Rugby Club, but if they win their next tournament, we’re not going to dress like Liberace and ride up Quandary on a unicycle. We support the awesome Summit High Lady Tigers rugby team, but if they win state again next year, we’re not going to dye our face green and promise to speak only Swedish for a month.

But speaking of Larissa Riquelme, we have to admire this young woman’s way of, uh, accessorizing with her cell phone (see photo). In every picture, she’s got her phone tucked into her somewhat attention-grabbing decolletage, presumably because her jeans are too tight to use for pockets, and the boob-ready cell phone approach is just ever so much more convenient. Oh, and also, this just in: Despite the fact that Paraguy (which is in South America, BTW) didn’t make it into the finals, Larissa has announced that she’s going to run through the streets of Paraguay in the buff anyway … as “a present to all of the players, and for all the people in Paraguay to enjoy.”

Given the fact that this stunt has been announced all over the world, we’re wondering how many people and cameras are going to be tuned in for this event when it does take place? Or is she going to do it sort of in secret, maybe at night, on a closed street in an unknown town in Paraguay? Given our understanding of Paraguay-an geography, she could do it in the biggest city and we’d still have no idea.

Anyway, keep an eye out … or not.

Gotta run folks. Ciao!
