Five? Sixth time’s the charm and holy crap, what a goal it was!) And also thank you for Angel and his tireless work ethic. My heroes! CAMPEONES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO PROUD!

El Pirata, He Swims With The Fishes

15 Apr

Man, I am SO FREAKING JEALOUS! El Pirata and teammate Mikel Gonzalez got to swim in the big tank at the San Sebastian Aquarium. As someone who has gone all over the world to swim with the fishes, I would love to have this opportunity. I’ve swum with rays, turtles, sharks, etc. but never any sharks as big as the ones that were cruising around in that tank. What a great experience they must have had! I love how El Pirata seems to just be enjoying the hell out of San Sebastian.

Sergio Ramos For Hugo Boss

15 Apr

tumblr_n432zzYvg01rmsk02o1_r2_1280Well then, do we have a little model competition going on at Real Madrid? Sergio Ramos is the new face of Hugo Boss’ #SuccessBeyondTheGame perfume campaign. The previous spokesmodel was none other than Xabi “GQMF” Alonso. Maybe they’re just adding Sergio to their, ahem, stable of star representatives? Well, if nothing else, we have some spectacular pictures and video to look forward to if they’re anything like what was produced for Xabi’s stint.

The Daily Drool: Jaba Kankava

15 Apr

Jaba Kankava2Midfielder Jaba plays for FC Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk. He has represented Georgia at the U17, U19, U21 and senior levels. Not only is he a big hot daddy, he’s a lifesaver – literally. In a match on March 30, 2014, Dynamo Kiev captain Oleh Husyev was knocked unconscious and swallowed his tongue. Quick thinking Jaba immediately stuck his hand down his throat and cleared his airways. He got bit for his troubles but he saved Oleh’s life. You can read about/see the dramatic rescue here. Amazing!
