I don't want to alarm you, but you should know that the Tom Cruises are multiplying and descending upon world football like its a couch on a talk show.
First we have the Tom Cruise -- actor, creator of new realities, pilot. Turned on to the sport by his good buddy Davey Becks, he took time off from shooting a movie to attend tonight's Sevilla v Rangers Champions League match with his wife and co-stars Cameron Diaz and Peter Sarsgaard.
I don't think he actually did anything of note (except, you know, continue to exist), but the mere fact that he was there on the same exact night that at another Champions League tie in Greece, 18-year-old Tom Cruise made his debut for Arsenal, starting at left back.
“For me there is only one Tom Cruise – and it is the one who plays for Arsenal!
“You get used to the jokes about his name and I would like him to come in not under too much pressure.”
Pressure? Come on. All he has to do to live up to the name "Tom Cruise" is appear psychologically unstable at times, smile way too hard, and marry a girl off Dawson's Creek. That's not too hard.
