Wayne Rooney's stag party

wayneroony.jpgEnglish soccer star Wayne Rooney is said to be spending $500,000 for a weeklong stag party on the Spanish island of Izbiza. Rooney, 22, is set to wed Coleen McLoughlin, 22. As part of his party, his mates, which include his two brothers, are forcing him to wear a Borat-style "mankini."

For those not in the know, it’s a British custom for men on vacay, be it stag or otherwise, to bring some kind of novelty swimsuit along. Why? It’s as much the English way as burning your skin to a crispy lobster red, drinking 40 shots of rainbow coloured liquid from test tubes and waking up on a nightclub floor covered in cigarette ash. It’s not pretty, but it’s true.

The photo with this item is from the event but neither of the blokes is Rooney. More photos here. So this is what English soccer players are doing since they failed to qualify for the Euro 2008 tournament now underway. --Jim Buzinski
