Some wise old man, whose name I forget, once said ‘a man falls in love with his eyes, a woman with her ears’. To be honest I don’t agree. As a man I feel it paints us as simplistic, blundering idiots (we just have a deep appreciation of aesthetic qualities and the beauty of life that’s all, Your Honour) and most women don’t even listen anyway; they just pretend to, nodding away, waiting until you finish blabbering on so they can take their turn in the blabbering on game.
But, anyway, I’m digressing. When you can fall in love with both your eyes and ears it’s a perfect combination. So Fulham’s Clint Dempsey seems to have struck lucky. Meeting at Furman University, South Carolina, Clint and Bethany became friends before hooking up years later and eventually getting married in 2007. Bethany certainly has brains and beauty; having obtained a masters degree in America and trained as an educational psychologist in England, she has now – equally importantly – moved into the world of modeling.
Stripping off for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition, Bethany made a notable debut, wearing nought but a body paint bikini. When asked if it was hard to get the paint off after-wards, she replied ‘you have to scrub for a while’. I’m sure Mr Dempsey would have only been too pleased to lend a helpful hand, the lucky swine.
