Boy oh boy. He really needs to grow all his hair back and pronto, because this is not a good look for him, IMHO. (Screenshot courtesy of @Maia4Barca) Someone on Twitter said he looked like ‘a naked mole rat.’ Oh dear. I don’t think he looks that bad, but he just doesn’t look like Pique to me.
As we’re awaiting the start of the match, I thought I’d put up a wee bits & bobs post. The good news is that Angel arrived in Dortmund today and will be able to play. That is VERY good news, because it must mean that Jorgelina and the baby are fine. Thank god. I’m sure he wouldn’t leave if there was a major issue. Still sending good thoughts their way.

WOW. JUST WOW. I’m rather speechless. Pique shaved his head. When I saw the headline, I thought he had shaved his *beard* when I clicked the link, I shrieked. But not as loud as watishista P! I heard her howling all the way from midtown.

So for those peeps planning to see Manchester City/Chelsea or Spain/Ireland at Yankees Stadium, there’s still no news as to when individual match tickets go on sale. As it stands now, you must buy a ticket bundle, which means you have to attend both games. But now they’ve added a new wrinkle to make it even more annoying. Continue reading
I am sad and sick looking at the news/photos coming out of Boston. For those who don’t know, there were two explosions about 2 hours ago at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Many spectators and runners were injured. As of now, there are two confirmed deaths. Two other unexploded devices was found and detonated by police. There are also multiple reports of unexploded devices coming in. The Copley Square area is in lockdown and police are trying to evacuate as many people as possible right away. Obviously, this is a developing story. Boston.com has a live feed of news that they are constantly updating. Cell phones are not working, so if you have a friend who was participating today, Boston marathon run tracker still working, you can search for their last known location here. Social media may be the best way to connect with their loved ones. I know we have several Boston area watishistas, I’m hoping and praying that you and your’s are safe. Please check in when you can.
My heart hurts right now.
UPDATED: Call 617-634-4500 MASS HOTLINE if looking for missing loved ones. If anyone has information for police, please call 1-800-494-TIPS.
UPDATE 2: Google has set up a People Finder.
So my inbox was newly assaulted after those Barca training shirts with an offer from the RM online shop to purchase my very own Real Madrid Soccer Starz dolls. You know I sure ain’t going to pass up some shiz that gives me nightmares, so I just had to go and take a look.
At first gasp, they seem rather benevolent, at least in the packaging. Mou looks, ahem, more “fresh faced” than usual but hey, if I had a doll made of myself, I’d be thrilled if they removed my under eye bags, so fair enough. Upon closer inspection, you start to see some things that are missing from each doll… Continue reading
I’ve been in meetings all day and didn’t have a chance to see these until Shigs sent me an incredulous email. I raced over to Dirty Tackle to see the potential new Barca training shirts and almost spit out my coffee. Holy shit! When it debuted, I thought nothing could be worse than their infamous Tequila Sunrise kit, but this is just…OMFG. Cules & bi-teamuals, please know that our thoughts are with you at this difficult time. It’s going to be just as painful for us to look at these things as it is for you. Trust me.
Sorry, Shigs! I know the fact that Kaka’s wife has her own monogrammed set of super sharp knives is going to completely traumatize you (Carol was taking her culinary school exam) but honestly, it wasn’t the scariest thing that I saw yesterday. Continue reading
So this is making the rounds as one of our potential kits for 2013-2014. Not great, but not too bad, right? Well, check out the other ones. Continue reading
A friend sent this to me and I can’t even begin to explain it. I guess there was some sort of crazy dance party going on or is he just being extra silly? Lord, if pictures of me dancing got out in public, they’d probably be worse than this. He looks super young, doesn’t he? It did give me about a bazillion giggles though.
