The Daily Drool: Aly Borromeo

6 Jul

American-born Filipino footballer Alexander Charles Luis “Aly” Borromeo has played as a center back and forward for Kaya since 2003 (last season on loan to Global).  He began his international experience in 2000 with the Philippines National U19 Team before moving up to the first team in 2004. He is currently the captain. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that he was an underwear model. Take a gander…

    Awww, you featured one of our boys! Our national team’s nickname is “The Azkals”. It means “half-breeds” Most of our players are half filipino and half something else.

    We are currently trying to qualify for the 2014 World Cup. Wish us luck! 🙂

      Ahahaha! I got my slang words mixed up. Azkal doesn’t mean “half-breed”, it means “street dog”. Our national team likes to this nickname because street dogs are resilient, aggressive and loyal, just like them. So, there!

      And if you’re wondering what the filipino slang for “half breed” is, it’s “Aspin”. 🙂

    hell to the yeah! FILIPINO! FILIPINO! 🙂

    Thanks so much Lozil for featuring one of our own. a power hug and a big smooch for you! ü

    He’s our El Capitan! XD He was a beast against Sri Lanka. Too bad he will be suspended in the 1st leg against Kuwait.

    Anna Buena (hello kababayan! c:) is right. We have many HOT half-breeds – half-British, German, Spanish(!) but we have talented homegrown talents as well. we really hope to qualify for the 2014 world cup!!! go AZKALS!

      Hi Mari! Kamusta? 🙂 yes, we have a talented lot, don’t we? Very proud of our boys! 🙂

        Another Filipina here! I adore Aly! Like Iker he is all captainy in the way he carries himself!

        Another Azkal you could feature is Neil Etheridge, our British-Filipino goalkeeper, who is also the 3rd GK of Fulham!

        • AnnaBuena July 8, 2011 at 1:14 am #

          How can I forget Neil! He was my first favorite! That guy’s huge! Did you see how the sri-lankans would just bounce off him!

          Yay! There are a lot of filipina wa-tishistas! 🙂

      I’m so glad that I found someone you two liked! Whoooo! If you have any other suggestions, please, please, please send them on to me! I found a nice picture of Anton Del Rosario as well. Wishing you guys tons of luck in qualifying for WC 2014!

        You got it, Lozil! Do you just need names? I’m really liking our new midfielder Angel Guirado. He’s kinda like our Sergio Ramos (looks wise), although I’m not sure either guys would appreciate the comparison. The Younghusband (James and Phil) brothers are the most popular here in Manila though. 🙂

      hey hey, sri lanka has a football team that plays internationally??? how do i not know this? i’m going to look into it and make sure they work really hard and next time we bring it (or atleast the papare band) 😛

        The Sri Lankan NT is called the Brave Reds; however they don’t get as much popular support as cricket does.

    very very cute! love those freckles!

    My life’s almost back to normal again, YAY! I’ve missed everyone here so much! Very glad to be back, but boy do I have some catching up to do..

    I can’t help but misread his name as “Bromeo”. *sigh* This leads to bad bad thoughts about bromances.. 😉

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 6, 2011 at 8:42 pm #

      Welcome back! I was just wondering today where you’ve been. Sorry, we’ve been a bit…prolific. So much for stuff slowing down in the summer, eh? 😉

      • HermosaChica July 7, 2011 at 8:20 am #

        Are you kidding?! 😮 No apologies needed!

        And who ever said things slowed down during the summer?! ‘Cause when I see them ‘ballers bathing those abs on the beach, my heart beats fast fast fast!!! 😆

  5. mari July 7, 2011 at 8:03 pm #

    yey! so glad to know that there are other Pinays here 🙂

    – Anton del Rosario is a Real Madrid fan! that’s 1 million+ points in my book!!!

    – i agree with Anna re Angel Guirado. A promising talent. I heard he will not renew his contract with his club in Spain and other Asian football teams are monitoring him. and yes i can see the Sergio thing going on – the hair, and the fact that he can’t speak English! hehe.. got all giggly during his interview in Hardball! :))

    • AnnaBuena July 8, 2011 at 1:22 am #

      And he wears a headband too! I must catch that interview! 🙂

      I did not know Anton is a madridista!!! For that, I will cheer for him during matches. Madridistas help each other out! 🙂

  6. jellyace July 8, 2011 at 4:56 am #

    Thank you Lozil for posting on Aly Borromeo and in doing so have brought together 3 Pinays who are kindred spirits! Hala Madrid! Go Azkals!

  7. headbandsandheartbreak July 8, 2011 at 4:05 pm #

    Ladies! Your Azkals made Kickette this afternoon! Looks like the whole world is discovering their beauty.

    • Kat July 9, 2011 at 6:22 am #

      I’m taking full credit for that Azkals feature on Kickette, my fellow Madridistas! I sent in the link to the twitpics.

      And yes, Anton del Rosario is hot, so is Neil. And Angel is not my type, but indeed very Sergio Ramos with the hair, the shape of the face and the headband. The guy in the picture with Neil and Anton, I don’t have his name but I find him adorable. Does anyone know?

      • penny July 9, 2011 at 7:51 am #

        @Kat the other guy is Yannick Tuson of the Azklas U-23

        • Kat July 9, 2011 at 8:53 am #

          U-23?!?! Damn, too young! Hahaha.

        • jellyace July 9, 2011 at 2:07 pm #

          Spelling correction: Yannick Tuason,

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

          Wowsa! Looks like there’s another generation of hottie Azkals to come!

      • headbandsandheartbreak July 9, 2011 at 5:14 pm #

        Well then, thank you very much! Feel free to send us any pix or suggestions for The Daily Drool!

  8. jellyace July 9, 2011 at 2:09 pm #

    Saw the Kickette post. Thank you, Kat!

    When I first saw this entry I thought to myself – why is Lola featuring some guy with his shirt on…

    …then I scrolled down a little further and…

    …OMG! BFH – totally!


    • headbandsandheartbreak July 10, 2011 at 10:42 am #

      Heh! I think he looks hot with a shirt too! 🙂

      Occasionally, I surprise you all and leave a fully clothed man lying around for you to objectify. Sometimes, guessing what’s underneath can be just as fun. 😉

      • Jenny July 10, 2011 at 10:54 am #

        Objectification…it WOULD be a problem – if they didn’t all date models!

        Jenny’s conscience is clear!
