Moucation and Other Bits & Bobs

22 Jun

Watishista! super sleuth Maddy tracked down this picture of Mou and the fam kicking back over on Mesut Means Happy  When I popped over there to see what was happening, I came upon this hilarious ESPN Women’s World Cup commercial with Abby Wambach.

And any resemblance to the recent Clasicos is purely unintentional, I’m sure. 😉 Speaking of Barca, Pique and Shakira were in Israel and Mademoiselle Hips Don’t Lie produced a classic statement that had everyone on the Internet howling with laughter yesterday.

When meeting with Shimon Peres, Shakira said (and I’m using una’s translation because I trust her): ““I would like a world that functions like Barça does.  In this way, we can win the game against discrimination.”  Um, yeah. Because that worked out so well for Marcelo.

Sandro Rosell continues to keep flapping his jaw and it’s exhausting. Someone seriously needs to rein this guy in. He’s just stoking the flames. Mou is on vacation. He’s not saying shit. Rosell needs to just stop already. We all need to move on. Can I get an amen?  Una has this along with an excerpt of a Cris interview where he mentions being in wuv and how it improves his game, and a translation of wonderful, wonderful AS interview with the delightful Jerzy Dudek. It’s so worth a read. Head on over here and get all the deets from Her Awesomeness. tells us that Mesut is tied for the all time most wins in a debut La Liga season record while Ricardo Carvalho is the most honored member of the Real Madrid squad! He’s won 18 titles in the last 10 years.  He has had only one season in which he didn’t win a trophy: 2007-2008. However, that year, Chelsea were the runners-up for the Premiership, League Cup, the UCL and Community Shield. That’s pretty damn impressive. Just goes to show that the most visible players are not always the most successful. Also pretty damn impressive? Carvalho’s former head of hair as evidenced by these pictures:

After causing plenty of controversy with his choice of swimming companions, Cesc swanned off to Indonesia on what watishista! notoriousjk hilariously referred to as his “Eat Pray Love” tour. He tweeted this photo of his airport arrival.

Boy oh boy, am I ever so glad that I’m not famous. I look like hot buttered ass after a long international flight. There’s no way in hell I’d want a shrieking throng with cameras greeting me. He also just tweeted a picture of him and two friends on their way to have dinner with the  “Biskuat team.”  He looks very dashing in his suit!

The Twitterverse is all ablaze with reports that Raphael Varane and his agent are putting the finishing touches on a deal for him to come to Madrid (Sid Lowe – among others – mentioned this last night, so it seems legit).

The 18 year old (A  Muppet Baby! Cris will be thrilled!) center back plays for French side Lens. He’s seen as a long term replacement for Carvalho.  He totes has the cheekbones to play for Madrid, but has sadly from what I can see, cut off his beautiful braids since this picture was taken.  The other rumor making the rounds is that we are thisclose to signing Neymar (Another Muppet! It’s going to be the best season evah for Cris!) It’s going to be interesting to watch all this go down. And now, I must get ready for work. I’ll leave you with this rico suave piccy of Cris that Maddy found on Mesut Means Happy.

    Goshhhhh. The Barca circus just needs to shut down for the summer and recharge, because their clowning around is getting lamer by the minute.

    The Ricky Carvalho circa Porto hair is amazing.

    “hot buttered ass” – you kill me, lo!
    and yes, fully agree with manie, carvalho’s tresses are completely mindblowing. i’d totally forgotten that he’d sported that look.

    OMG, Carvalho looked like that before??? Sorry, new football fan here. Hahahaha! I’m glad his hair is tamer now. A lot tamer. I love you, Ricky! 🙂

    man… what a load of good looking men we have here. That Sportscenter add is hysterical. I saw it yesterday and laughed, esp when John just got up and walked off with his papers.

    I kind of liked Shakira pre ‘High tower’ alias Pique……….
    Now, not so much. What a blonde, brainless thing to say. Perhaps she will start singing songs about Barcelona making the world a better place, and the song wil surprise, surprise be written by Barcelonas marketing department……….
    It will be legen-wait for it-dary……… (I like how I met your mother, and esp. Barney :D)
