::cough:: said MyGypsySpirit ::cough:: (Who am I kidding? I happily depants Arbie with little or no provocation). The team had their final training at the Bernabeu before tomorrow’s Copa Del Rey clash with Cornellà. CR7 had the day off again while Medrán, Raúl de Tomás, Lucas Torró and Jaime from Castilla joined the big boys. (Video) Continue reading
400 million. That is the estimated number being reported as the viewership for this Clasico. Amazing, no? Want to know what I find really amazing? Neither Pepe nor Ramos logged a single foul in this game. NOT. A. ONE. In a Clasico. All hail the gods for such blessings. I count this statistic as a double win for Los Blancos. I may actually be more proud of this than the actual win. Only just a little though.

Incredibly sad news was relayed today by watishista forzasusan.

But of course we knew that already! Nike has produced a rather overblown commercial for CR7’s Mercurial Superfly boot and the Clasico. Unintentionally hilarious is the special guest appearance of Carlo, Flotsam & Jetsam. Ya gotta love it!
Apparently it is. Seems like just yesterday that watishista mygypsyspirit and I were parked in our seats at the Bernabeu singing (and swearing) our hearts out at the last Liga Clasico. Let’s hope this one ends up better than the last time and that I don’t nearly get run over by a SWAT team on the way home from the pub. Just sayin’. As you can see, Sergio is back in action and giving us two thumbs way up. Continue reading
