On the heels of Chelsea FC’s opening US Tour 2012 match in Seattle on Wednesday, July 18, Frank Lampard, Branislav Ivanovic, Petr Cech and Romelu Lukaku were joined at training today by a few Seattle Seahawks players where they swapped shirts and sports for a bit of fun. The July 18 match is part of the World Football Challenge which takes place across North America July 18 through August 11.

    Lampard throws like a girl but kicks like a man

    • The Gaffer says:

      As a Brit, I was actually impressed by Lampard’s throw. We don’t play American football in the UK, so when we see an oval shaped ball like that, we only know how to throw it like a rugby ball which is completely different.

        I too was supprised at how well he threw the ball because most of the time you see anybody that doesn’t live in the western hemisphere try to throw a ball over hand they throw it like a girl.

      • Matthew says:

        I agree I thought Frank did well receiving and throwing the ball. I saw a video of him hitting some baseball, pretty well.

        • CTBlues says:

          I saw that video too and he wasn’t hitter ng baseballs they sounded like some sort of soft ball(not softball) and he was swing:ng the bat like a cricket bat lol.

    • MG says:

      The second throw, maybe. Not the first.

    I love that they have no idea who lampard is, and give him a jersey with fan written on it…. also who would love to see Lampard run a crossing pattern with a free safety lurking.

  3. CTBlues says:

    Chelsea noticed how ugly the jerseys that the Sea Hawks were giving them so they gave them ugly jerseys too lol.

    It’s a shame that the Yankees will be on a road trip and wont be able to show Frankie how to hold and swing a bat correctly.
