Oh boy! Facebook was full of silliness today. First off, Iker posted this picture of him and Aitor Karanka with a slightly crazed looking El Pirata photobombing them in the background. It’s probably for his show of self-portraits at a gallery in Madrid’s equivalent of Williamsburg. The words “culturally referential,” ”irony,” “semiotics” and “deconstruction” will feature heavily in the artist’s statement. (You know, sometimes I think that life that I’ve made up for El Pirata in my head is probably a lot more interesting than his reality. Poor Esteban, I do tease you so, but that’s what you get for taking a Moleskine journal to the beach, babe!)
Speaking of self-portraits, Karim looked hot in his Facebook entry, if you ignore the outfit, especially the hat. Feast your eyes on the pouty lips and leave it at that. Tasty!
In terms of just plain ol’ hotness, who can bring it more than Mesut and Sergio? The first two pictures made their way into my inbox courtesy of watishista Maddy. Mesut is deeeeeelicious!
And last month (I know, hella late – just haven’t had time to get my act together), watishista Melissa Wright (and also Maddy!) sent me this great gif of Mesut gettin’ his sassy on. I just want to bite him, he’s so cute! This came via Mesut Means Happy.
Something else I found the other day (via bluenicole) was this gorgeous close up of Sergio signing autographs in Ponferrada.
Good lord. That boy is so gorgeous, he oughta be illegal. So pretty it hurts. He was also very sweet about signing for the fans waiting in the rain.
And finally Guti… What’s he going to do now in terms of his playing career? Well, apparently he’s going to decide next week. He’s had offers from Shanghai and Dubai. Sigh. Guti, Guti, Guti. In your heart, you know you belong here in NYC. C’mon, you know you want to! Don’t make me wait, Guti! I’m willing to buy season tickets to the damn Red Bulls if you come. You think you’ll find that kind of devotion in Shanghai and Dubai? Yeah, you probably will, but it’s New York! I’ll throw in all the NY metro area watishistas, a pound of the best nova lox, lunch with Marty Markowitz and a couple of egg creams to sweeten the deal. You’re not going to find that anywhere but here.
