Hulk scores on scintillating solo run as Zenit reach UCL group stage


Hulk doesn’t need to smash to be a menace on the field. Sometimes, a little solo run past three hapless defenders will do just fine, as was the case Tuesday against Standard Liege.

The robust Brazilian striker scored two goals to send Zenit into their third straight Champions League group stage. The first was a penalty kick, and the second was, well, just watch:


Hulk scores cracking goal in season opener


Uh oh. Hulk is back smashing things again.

Probably still angry over Brazil’s embarrassing end to their World Cup campaign last month, the Zenit attacker took all his frustration out on poor Arsenal Tula on Matchday 1 of the new Russian Premier League campaign.


Lord have mercy! Goalkeeper Aleksandr Filimonov might actually be glad he didn’t get in the way of that one. He easily could’ve lost a hand or worse.

Zenit won their season opener on the road, 4-0.


The Hulks take over Instagram

Simply adorable.  This picture was posted to Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk’s Instagram over the weekend, along with the caption:

"Besides the protection of God, also have two super heroes at home."

Apparently, the two were quite pumped up about daddy’s performances recently. In last week’s Champions League bout at his former club Porto, Hulk scored the match-winning goal after paying a visit to Porto’s new sculpture dedicated to him at the Estadio do Dragao stadium:

Brazilian TV measures Hulk’s bum; it’s bigger than we thought


During the Confederations Cup, social media was all abuzz over Brazilian forward Hulk. No, not because of his name, or his tendency to blow chance after chance, but because of his “hulky” behind!

After many fans, reporters and even players pointed out that Hulk might possibly have the biggest bum in sports, Brazilian TV show “Esquenta” took up the case, convincing the burly forward to have his heinie measured on live television.

Turns out, we totally undersold the magnitude of this man’s backside.

The circumference of Hulk’s buttocks measured an astounding 43.7 inches. To put that into proper context, Hulk beats out Brazil’s current “Miss BumBum,” Andressa Urach, by a full 4 inches! You can see a comparison below:

Friends reunited at Stamford Bridge?


Could Hulk and Radamel Falcao link up once again at Chelsea? That’s the mouthwatering prospect mooted by one of the UK’s papers should Jose Mourinho return as Chelsea boss over the summer. The pair proved to be an electrifying combination at Porto, then managed by Andre Villas-Boas, but went their separate ways when the Europa League-winning side was broken up two years ago.
