We’ve got less than 24 hours to go until the FINAL kicks off! Training done? Check. Interviews & pressers done? Check. Tucked in at the hotel? Check. Freaking out? Check. Hopefully that last one is happening only on our parts, we need cool, calm, & collected boys who are ready to kick some ass tomorrow. I want to see big goals, a big win, and a big celebration! Make it happen boys, we need that trophy!
Remember game recaps? Those things I used to be so on top of? Yeah….so sorry about that. After our exit from the CL, writing time kind of flew out the window, which resulted in a bunch of semi-started game recaps, just sitting & collecting on my computer. I just finished breaking my back over an eight foot painting, so here I am able to bring you MalagEspanyolisticexpialidocious (even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious!), two recaps in one! Hopefully y’all don’t mind some old news & a little been there, seen that.
Look at that goofy smile. Winning the Europa League will do that to a person and it looks good on him! Chelsea beat Benfica, 2-1, with Nando scoring the opener & Ivanovic supplying the last minute winner. Congratulations to Chelsea FC & their fans! Continue reading
Look at those defined calves!! Just kidding, you know I’m only looking at Pipa’s ass, but I must say…that thing is de-FOINE also Today the boys trained for the second to last time before Copa del Rey Friday (it’s like casual Friday, but not). The team is getting ready! Are you guys ready?? All I know is that all Madridistas deserve to see drunk Xabi this season. We’ve earned it with all the ups & lots of downs. I want the bus. I want the people. I want the confetti. I want Sergio to do something stupid. I want the drunk Xabi. I want it all. I want it allllllllll and I want it nowwwww!
I’m leaving for the airport in an hour or so if I can peel Max the Cat off me. He’s very sad. I hate leaving him behind but he’s not a beach sort of cat! Maisougio will be your daily Perv Concierge while I’m sunning my rivaling-Iker-Casillas-pallor in Mexico for a couple of days with watishista P. So this will be a drive by. The day has been textbook Lozil thus far. I tripped over my suitcase earlier and nearly knocked myself out. Never fails. I am the world’s biggest klutz. So I’ll be starting the vacation bruised but hopefully I’ve gotten all the drama out of the way. If I owe you an email, please forgive me – I’m totally behind on work, packing, everything. I’ll get on it when I return next week.
The team trained again today and the good news is that Mesut was back with them – hooray! Looks like he’ll be just fine for the final on Friday. Continue reading
Getting Ready For The Copa Del Rey, Even MORE Tennis, USWNT vs. Korea, Update on Spain vs. Ireland And More13 May
Why is the last day in the office before vacation always a nightmare of epic proportions?! I’ve been racing around for days trying to get things settled before I leave tomorrow afternoon, but I feel like I’ll be up until midnight easily sorting things out. Haven’t even packed yet. Anyhow, Here’s a quick and dirty catch up post.
The team did their first training to prepare for the Copa Del Rey final on Friday. Sami was back to training intensely, Pipa was inside while Sese, Mesut & Marcelo continued with their recovery. Continue reading
Mesut, Pipa, Fabio and The Baby (when he was in one piece ::sniffle::) participated in a little football golf for BWIN with adorable results.
I’ll have a training post up shortly. I’ve been tied up in meetings all day.
