While I Was Sleeping…

2 Jun

…y’all were busy! I woke up to a ton of comments. Watishista Mais kindly sent in this video of La Roja on the plane to the US. She got it from Isabella who found it on Twitter (but didn’t send it in to us. Naughty!!!! ;-)) Thanks, Mais, I actually do need to occasionally sleep (it’s rare, but…) so it’s nice to know that people are there are finding and sharing goodies with us. A watish! of the headband to you, young lady! Scandals from this video? Nando sitting with Xabi, (which to be fair, given half a chance I would sit with him too) and Sergio sitting with…Bruno? Hmmm, this lack of bromancing is seriously pissing me off. Think of the fangirls, Sernando! Other goodies that showed up…

First off, it was a good day for Nigeria, not so much for Argentina. Nigeria spanked them 4-1 in a friendly yesterday. Ouch.

Iker is getting his Facebook and Google Translate on again, bless. Here’s his latest which I can only imagine is the view from the Westin.

I’m looking forward to Sergio and Arbeloa’s upcoming tweets and pictures. You know they can’t resist. So onward to some other National Teams…

Portugal is gearing up for their game with Norway tomorrow and Cris gave us an up close and personal view of the Crisberries today as well. COVER YOUR EYES, SHIGGERS!


Oy vey. Let’s move right along, too much to see there.  Germany are getting ready for their own match vs. Austria tomorrow (and France is playing Belarus). Jogi and Duckie did a press conference today.


How cute are they? Here’s a couple of quick leftover shots from yesterday’s training.


Iker wasn’t the only one getting his Facebook on. Jailbait! put up this demon-eyed shot of himself at a benefit for Fundación Caíco which deals with children’s cancer.  Good for you, Jailbait! I’m glad you have the philanthropic spirit.


El Pirata graced us with pictures from his Los Piratas de Granero summer camp which are absolutely adorable. I thought we were going to borrow some kids and do a field trip there? What happened? Must plan better next year!


Aiiiiiieeeeee! Look at them all doing the Pirata thing! They are absolutely yummy.


Ruud van Nistelrooy is coming back to La Liga! He’s signed a deal with Malaga.

The wait is almost over. We’ll soon know for sure what they intend to foist upon us in terms of next season’s kits. Let’s say a prayer that they’re not too hideous.

And finally, the original Copa Del Rey, mangled as it is, has been installed in the RFEF museum, which is kinda hilarious.


 I wonder if they’ll have a video of Sergio dropping the cup next to it running 24/7? And because everyone has to get in on the cup dropping trend that we started, here’s Patrice Evra pretending to drop the Premier League trophy.

    I’m sorry Lozil, I found this video while I was at work very busy so I literally had no time to write to you. I was only able to check my phone once in a while and now I’m rushing to training so today is out of life for me… But I’m glad you like it! 🙂

    Lozil! I’m officially not talking to you until Saturday! Drawing me in with a nice, sleepy picture of Xabi and then flashing Crisberries at me. Sheesh, it’s far too good dream gone bad.

    Oh, wait–just remembered my which shoes to wear conflict. I guess I’ll forgive you, but you’re on warning.

    and can I just say: Iker, so cute.

      I am duly humbled. I will behave myself. Just remember though, I have the game tickets! 😉

    Here’s another video I found a few days ago but couldn’t share (stupid exams!) it involves some of the boys and Mou speaking some chinese to promote the game coming up in China! It’s all just so cute. http://youtu.be/GjW5pfdhjKU Not sure if you’ve seen it, but it can’t hurt to share! 🙂
