Cristiano Is Out Of This World

24 Oct

But of course we knew that already! Nike has produced a rather overblown commercial for CR7’s Mercurial Superfly boot and the Clasico. Unintentionally hilarious is the special guest appearance of Carlo, Flotsam & Jetsam. Ya gotta love it!

Is It That Time Again Already? On To The Clasico!

24 Oct

Satellite (10)Apparently it is. Seems like just yesterday that watishista mygypsyspirit and I were parked in our seats at the Bernabeu singing (and swearing) our hearts out at the last Liga Clasico. Let’s hope this one ends up better than the last time and that I don’t nearly get run over by a SWAT team on the way home from the pub. Just sayin’.  As you can see, Sergio is back in action and giving us two thumbs way up.  Continue reading

Match Recap: Champions League – Real Madrid Vs. Liverpool

23 Oct

Liverpool FC v Real Madrid CF - UEFA Champions LeagueFull disclosure: I was a little nervous going into this match. Not because I didn’t think we were strong, but because of where it fell in our schedule. I also kept thinking of our record against Liverpool. We’ve faced them three times and never beat them.

Sweaty, Half Naked, Decidedly Victorious

22 Oct

Works for me – as did today’s victory at Anfield. We get some half nekkid Arbeloa with Stevie G’s jersey covering his junk (well, that’s novel), Man Edith flashing some surprising, rarely seen abs and Isco looking like he’s participating in a wet kit contest. And how could I forget some classic Team Show Me On The Doll bad touching? Not too shabby for a day’s work.
