celebrity lookeylikey of the day

A partly World Cup-themed offering today, almost certainly the one and only time you'll see the World Cup mentioned on this blog, football not really being my thing generally. But nonetheless here's Roberto Baggio, Italian playmaker of the 1990s and the man rather unfairly most remembered for punting the crucial penalty attempt over the crossbar in the shootout at the end of the 1994 World Cup final, thus handing victory to Brazil; and here's Lindsey Buckingham, Fleetwood Mac's creative powerhouse during their commercial zenith in the late 1970s and on-off member of the band since then during their many reunions. Bizarrely, the latest plot twist in the ongoing soap opera of the band's existence is the firing of Buckingham in April of this year in the lead-up to a major tour, and possibly even more bizarrely his replacement for that tour by a couple of guys including Neil Finn, formerly of Crowded House.
