Real Madrid’s twitter feed posted a couple of pix of the guys chillaxing pre-match. First up, Mesut! Always cracks me up to see big ass headphones plugged into an Ipod. But then again, I’m an in-ear Sennheiser kinda chica. Less to carry on the subway.
Pipita hasn’t said a word about Abiol on his Twitter yet today. Is Albiolita over already? I certainly hope not. What would this pairing be? PepPipElo? Doesn’t roll off the tongue, that’s for sure.
I feel like we’re in the middle of a series called “Deep Thoughts With Sergio Ramos.” This is the second picture we’ve seen of him in recent days, posing on a staircase, looking lost in thought. Maybe he’s wondering what Nando is getting him for his birthday? (Nando, if you need suggestions – CALL ME).
No pre-match stretchies pictures have surfaced yet, so I’ll be back later. Here’s another update on Fabrice Muamba. Oh, and una has translation of a really interesting piece from El Mundo about Maryam Abu Ghanem, a former Bedouin goalkeeper in Israel who is a hijabi and her experiences as a woman of faith in the sporting world. It’s at the bottom of that post. Well worth checking out.
I’m off now to grab some lunch and give one more read through to my final paper before turning it in. ONE MORE DAY! ONE MORE DAY!
