Questa non la sapevo: WAGs

Se in questo periodo leggete riviste, potreste incappare nella sigla WAGs: che significa?

WAGs (or Wags) is an acronym, used particularly by the British tabloid press, to describe the wives and girlfriends of high-profile footballers, originally the England national football team. The term came into common use during the 2006 FIFA World Cup, although it had been used occasionally before that.[citation needed] The acronym has since been used by the media in other countries to describe the wives and girlfriends of sportsmen in general.
