Cris was in Bangkok to re-sign his presenter deal with Toyota today. He’s looking quite tan from his vacation.
El Pirata posted a picture of the books he read this summer and it’s so frigging him. Of course he read ‘Metamorphosis’ and ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’. OF COURSE! Throw in a little De Maupassant and Bukowski and you’ve got yourself a super duper hipster read-a-thon right there.
Imagine my surprise seeing Pirata’s bestie, wee Juan Mata, featured in the New York Times Magazine’s Men’s Fashion section.
Here’s how you can duplicate Juan’s “look” for a mere $4,028.98! I think I can easily bring that shiz in well under budget, thank you very much. I’m pretty sure Juan did too.
Xabi posted this great shot of La Concha in Donosti on his Twitter. Not sure when he took it as you can see from the next shot.
Oddly enough, Gary Lineker ran into both Nando and Xabi while on vacation today. Apparently, they’re all in Mallorca. At least that’s where Lineker is, so I am assuming they must be as well. Confusing.
He tweeted “Funny who you bump into on holiday. 2 good young players.. Torres and Alonso are not bad either.” - @GaryLineker
David Silva is now on Twitter! It was confirmed by Manchester City. His username is @21LVA and he also tweeted this picture of him hanging out with his brother.
Here’s some more shots of Sami and Lena in Miami. I have to say I don’t usually wear multiple necklaces to the beach (tan lines, yo!) but that’s why she’s a model and I’m not. I can’t accessorize for shit.
And here we have Sami’s Die Mannschaft teammate Mario Gomez on a boat. Why? Have you seen the dude’s chest? I rest my case.
There are tons more pictures of the wedding of Carlos and Mirian including video. Here you go! (Pictures via GF Sports, FxckYeahSergioRamos and Ballerazzi). I apologize if some of these are dupes from what I’ve already posted. My eyes are starting to cross from looking at wedding pictures.
Here’s a couple of more quick pictures of Sese on his vacay. The latter shot he posted on Twitter today.
And I know you all want some more awesome Marcelo, Enzo and Clarice shots, because they are amazeballs.
Marcelo posted this shot of himself with his buddies, but Clarice gifted us with some of the most adorable pictures of her little family that we’ve seen yet.
They are just too wonderful. Here’s a video promo for the match Marcelo’s partner in crime, Pepe, did with Arbeloa in Jakarta last week.
Iker is in Venezuela and posted a shot of himself on Facebook along with another of his new gloves.
Speaking of team gear, what do you think about the new training shirts? I love them!
Here’s a quick video of the guys at their medicals today. Pipita is supposedly winking, but he does it so many times, he looks like he has an eye twitch! I wonder if they gave The Baby a lollipop after they took his blood? I’d be tempted to!
Congrats to Spain’s U-19 team who won the European Championship yesterday! Our own Muppet Baby, Jese Rodriguez, scored the game winner.
In other news, Gerard Pique would like you to be aware that he knows how to get to Sesame Street, oh yes he does! Friends in high places, that Pique!
And finally, this story on Dirty Tackle cracked me up. I think we all might need a traveling contingent of drunken German fans to cheer us on as we complete our mundane tasks. I can just see them “whooing” as I clean the litter box, put away the laundry or file all the crap that’s laying around on my desk. I might be slightly more motivated.
