Here We Go!

5 Apr

Are you ready for some football?!  I know I am.  Mou looks 8 kinds of adorable here, doesn’t he?

Other people looked adorbs…

Foxy Pipita! He looks like he’s been taking pouting lessons from Nando. Me gusta and then some.

Also looking very, very nice? Crispy. Glad to have him back. He looks tanned rested and ready.

And hello, Rafa! Welcome back to Madrid. I’m happy to see you looking so fine but I still want to beat your team:

I wonder if he borrowed that Louis Vuitton bag from Sergio or is it just standard issue to anyone who plays for/did play for Real Madrid?

Some puzzling things: Why is Iker looking like shit lately and what the hell is going on with his hair?  It appears to be raining, but still…

What the hell are Pepe/Marcelo doing? Do I even want to know why Pepe is strangling Marcelo while they hold hands? Pepe looks like he’s about to liplock Marcelo. This whole picture is…confusing.

Not sure exactly how I feel about the white headband Ozi is sporting lately. I prefer the more formal black headband personally.


Scruffy Kaka in the picture too! Hee! It’s weird to see him looking like he’s just come off a 10 week bender, isn’t it?

I don’t know about you, but I’m totally going to be watching for Arbeloa to be fangirling over Crouchie after the game. I bet Albiol is pissed that he didn’t call up. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out Sid Lowe’s article. It’s beyond adorable. Arbeloa also tweeted this about the article:

Here’s the object of their affection, brand new papa Peter Crouch:

Dirty Tackle has more on the story and also an adorable picture (taken by Xabi Alonso apparently) of the boys in their England jerseys. I could just eat these boys up with a spoon! Sid Lowe also did a recent interview with Arbeloa that is well worth a read if you missed it.

I’m getting so excited for the game (which I will be surreptitiously checking in on at work). HALA MADRID!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Wow, it’s a good thing you stayed home from work today! That cough sounds bad! 😉 If you have some good, reliable streams, please do post the links.

      I also have flu-like symptoms. What an unbelievable coincidence!

      One of the nice things about Canada is that no one pays enough attention to football schedules (outside ordinary Premier League matches, which are quite popular) – it’s not like hockey, where people are clued-in enough to know when there’s a big game and people are skiving off!

    Mou is adorable. So is Pipita.

    I wouldn’t have recognized hungover!Kaka if you hadn’t pointed him out. How utterly appalling.

    As for Pepe and Marcelo – it’s plainly the throat throttle of love!

    I love that Cris is doing his fancy ball-tricks in practice – that would suggest he’s not in pain!

    As for white headbands – hell yes (that is to say, no)! Not naughty enough! Classic black is better for the “Headbands and Heartbreak” story-line too! I do hope Nike isn’t forcing him to wear it because they have an unexpected glut of white ones!

      Kaka looks terrifying – like a gone to seed bleary eyed couch potato that smells of beer and Cheetos. WTF? That is *not* a good look for him. Doesn’t inspire confidence in the slightest.

      I’m glad I’m not the only traditionalist who prefers a basic black headband. I know we have white kits, but seriously, the white looks like he has a shoelace tied around his head. Not good.

    Never thought I’d want to be a thumb, but I definitely wouldn’t mind being Pipita’s in that pouty photo..

    I’d have to agree with you on the headband issue; the black is nice and discreet.

    Not sure why, but Iker in that photo reminded me of this sexy man right here:

      OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just spit coffee on my computer screen. Evil, but spot on, HermosaChica.

      So who is watching the game? Half Time and I cannot believe Crouchie was sent off so quickly. We’re chatting about the game over on twitter. If you’re looking for me and Maisougio, we’re dld_ftw and @ihearttomas We don’t usually tweet during games from the HB & HB account. But feel free to follow us.

        Oh I’ve banned the consumption of beverages whilst reading this blog a looong time ago! 😉

      I honestly don’t know whether to laugh or go into a huff because you’re making fun of my Iker. I guess, given the fact that he looks like a total doof in that picture, I’ll just laugh. Sure does ugly well for such a pretty man.

      • kfunk22 April 5, 2011 at 4:22 pm #

        fully agreed, shiggers.
        i am loving this fluffy, 80s-era hairdo of his.

        • headbandsandheartbreak April 5, 2011 at 4:25 pm #

          Ladies, he looks like a freaking Muppet. Recognize!

          • GinaM April 5, 2011 at 4:50 pm #

            AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH my “cold” paid offf!!!!!

            HALA MADRID!!!!!

            • headbandsandheartbreak April 5, 2011 at 9:16 pm #

              You do realize that you are now required to have a “cold” for every remaining game of the Champions League, right? 😉

      • HermosaChica April 5, 2011 at 6:40 pm #

        But but but, I called Telly sexy..
        Naah, I can never hate on El Capitán. But honestly, these types of photos provoke such ugly yet imaginative descriptions. Lord knows I don’t hold back on descriptions of Sexio. 😉

        On another note, Iker looked mighty fine tonight!

    • headbandsandheartbreak April 5, 2011 at 9:19 pm #

      It was an amazing game! It made me even more pissed about missing the trip because I would have been there. ARGH. But I’m so happy that we won.
