Tales of Crozil…

2 Jan

Portmanteaus can be an odd things, can’t they?  CROZIL. Just let that one roll around on your tongue for a moment, why don’t you?  It sounds like a type of bruschetta or a new male enhancement pill, doesn’t it? (“I’ll have the Crozil/white bean pate’ bruschetta with a glass of Chianti, please!” or “Don’t use Crozil if you have high blood pressure and call your doctor if your erection lasts more than 4 hours” ). Alas, it’s simply Cristiano Ronaldo + Mesut Ozil. Whether or not they enjoy bruschetta or male enhancement drugs, I wouldn’t hazard to guess. I do know that they enjoy each other. A lot.  This is a good thing (for us). We get to search the internet for photos and zapruder videos of Real Madrid games looking for evidence to support our theory of their burgeoning bromance.

Exhibit A

Mmmm, Mesut...

"Mmm, Mesut, you feel soooooo good!"

Crissy looks a bit dreamy there, doesn’t he? Yeah, well, CR7 makes Mesut’s eyes roll back in his head as we can see below.

Exhibit B

Mmmmm, Crissy...

"Mmmm so do you, Cristiano..."

::sings:: “Sometimes when we touch/the honesty’s too much/and I have to close my eyes and hide/I wanna hold you till I die/till we both break down and cry/I wanna hold you/till the fear in me subsides…”

Exhibit C

Crozil again

"Oh Cristiano, you're the BEST."

Such a worshipful glance!

Exhibit D

Proud Mesut

"Are you proud of me, Cris?"

Oh those boys. Nothin’ but love.

Exhibit E

By far the most damning evidence of Mesut’s total man crush on Cristiano comes in the infamous T.Rex arms video.

Crozil T.Rex arms

"Come to Papi!"

Mesut completely loses his shit when Cris beams and beckons him with open arms. He runs like a toddler straight toward the object of his affections. Someone on ONTD_Football said that he had “T.Rex arms” and once you see that, trust me, it can never be unseen. He runs with his flailing little T.Rex/toddler arms and is enveloped in Cris’s loving embrace. This is how legends are born, people. If we didn’t see the Crozil before this, we certainly did after.  And so began the genesis of HB & HB.

Remember kids, C is for Crozil!

C is for Crozil

    ‘C’ is for Crozil?!?!?!?!

    My darlings – I’ve only just left a comment on another page – but this is too brilliant!

    I am now officially hooked on this exceedingly funny, witty, brilliant, clever and well-organized blog!

      Oh my gosh! Thank you so much! You are much too kind! Are you the Jenny that hangs out on Loew’s Miserables, is a big Ozil fan and does great German translation? If so, we’ve had some very nice interactions (under my “other” alias) and you completely rock. I’m so pleased to have you here. How did you find us? We’ve been working on the blog for a couple of weeks but just got the nerve to go public 2 days ago. – Lozil

        I am indeed “the Jenny that hangs out on Loew’s Miserables, is a big Ozil fan and does great German translation” – the description is too kind! I also hang around O_Ozil, Hala_Madrid, and Sami_Khedira (because next to Crozil and Podozil, there’s nothing like that particular bromance).

        I can’t quite remember how I got here. It could have been off Una Madridista – I’m the Jenny who hangs out there too.

          I’ve noticed you on Una’s site as well – she’s brilliant, isn’t she? I love that site. I’ll be updating here soon (I’m scrambling to meet a RL deadline). – Lozil
