Big China Update!

1 Aug


Okay, I’ve come to the conclusion that Iker is a watishista! Why else would he post a picture on his Facebook with him Charlie Browning It which is one of our most cherished poses here? (Check the HB & HB Glossary if you’re still flummoxed).  He said it’s because of the heat and humidity, but we all know that it’s a loving shout out. 😉  (Thanks to watishista! jellyace again for letting me know that Iker posted this.)

The boys have been moving non-stop since their arrival in China and have done quite a bit. Kick back and relax, lots of pix to share!  While they were in China, they dedicated the Realmadrid Foundation School in Guangzhou. There was a gala to celebrate the event and the guys did a signing for fans attending the event.

There was also an Adidas sponsored clinic with about 100 kids which produced some absolutely adorable pictures.





The kids are just so cute and our guys aren’t so bad either!  Apparently it’s hideously hot and humid in China right now. Los Blancos should thank the city of Philadelphia for preparing them for that action.

Both games in China are completely sold out.  A funny bit on the Real Madrid website pointed out that among Chinese fans “Iker Casillas is one of the most beloved, Kaka one of the most desired by the female audience and Cristiano Ronaldo one of the most imitated by fans.” It’s easy to see the first one, but I would have expected the other two to be reversed. So, the ladies like some sensitive Kaka? Good for them. Bad boys don’t always win!  And how exactly do the fans imitate Cris? Do they roll their shorts into hot pants? Do they all tan until they’re orange? Do they wear Gucci all the time? Inquiring minds want to know! 4,000 lucky fans watched today’s open training session. Flo P was also there in a suit keeping his eyes on the boys and their progress.


Oh dear! It’s the hot Mup! I can barely look at him without blushing at this point.  Must. Focus. On. Cristiano’s. Thighs. Instead.

One thing that made me very happy was the return of Crozil! Oh gentlemen, it’s been much too long!


I love their identical slack jawed expressions. Perhaps someone just showed them that picture of Varane? 

Sahin was on the pitch and it was a beautiful sight. Can’t wait to see him in action.






Oh god. Why do the baby’s legs look that good? And why is he next to Karim, who also looks really yummy? And Fauxnando in the background? This team is going to kill me with their hotness one of these days. Speaking of…

This one’s killing me softly with his arm muscles. And his headband. And his thighs and his… Oh to hell with it. I give up. Let’s just ogle! It wouldn’t be a training without Cris hiking up his shorts, would it?  And can you name those buttcheeks?


After the training session, our lovely captains were the spokesmodels at the press conference.


Someone has learned a new hand gesture! Guess Iker’s been spending more time with Mesut. Sergio went for the tried and true. If it ain’t broke, why fix it?




I have to admit, I’m not feeling Sergio’s hair right now, but considering how my hair gets when it’s humid, I’m sure he has to gel it within an inch of his life in order to keep it from turning into a giant puffball, so I’ll cut him some slack. Anyhow, the boys looks amazing and I can’t wait to see more of their adventures. HALA MADRID HOTTIES!

    — oh my goodness, I laughed out loud at work because the same thing was going through my head.

      LOL! The baby is causing me…issues. I’m spending a lot of time talking myself out of ogling him.

        Girl, he is legal! No jail involved. Let yourself go, denial is unhealthy! Men have been doing it since the beginning of mankind. Men get to say “baby got back”. Well..how about “baby got front” can I get an amen??

      Alas, no peace making Xabi and fighting kidlets but there is Sahin looking gorgeous and general all around RM hotness. This works for me as well. 🙂

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 1, 2011 at 5:08 pm #

      Found some gifs of Xabi playing bouncer here. That little one is fierce!

    i think sergio’s hair looks great in the picture where he’s signing th shirt! shiny 🙂 the kids are super cute, too!
    and i’m soo jealous, i’d love to be in china right now. i spent some time there and it was awesome, so i hope the boys make the best of it despite the heat and humidity!

      i apologize for the overuse of exclamation marks, blame it on the wine.

    I think what they mean by fans imitating Cris it’s stuff like his hair style, some of his signature moves? You know, the affordable things haha. I just LOVE how you tried to put up an anti-ogling fight but then completely gave up. Wouldn’t be HB&HB if we didn’t ogle freely right? 🙂

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 2, 2011 at 3:45 pm #

      It’s true! I made a valiant effort, but I can’t even pretend I’m not ogling the baby. Because I am. Oh boy, am I ever. 😉

    Those shirts they’re wearing during the signing remind me of The Love Boat! 🙂

    And the pic of Benz with the kids is just adorable.

    It’s kind of awkward to sit and scroll through these pictures when your daughter is standing behind you reading the captions and judging you… Yes, it is possible to make ‘MO-ommmm…’ a two syllable word…

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 2, 2011 at 10:46 am #

      LMAO! When I was young, I exceled in that. You may want to send her out of the room when you check out the “Half Naked Hotness” post. That turned us all into a bunch of slavering cougars. 😉

      Sorry… My reply to your comment is down below! I’m still learning…

    Lozil, you are sharp! The Charlie Brown (in Spanish, Carlos Marron…esss true!) thing didn’t even occur to me!

    So the GKs dress like Charlie Brown, and the white travel jersey looks like Love Boat. Seems like the Adidas designers are stuck watching summer reruns on TV!

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 2, 2011 at 10:43 am #

      CBI comes from the early days of HB & HB (oh yeah, way back in…January 2011). I saw Kaka doing it (hence the graphic) and then I started noticing it all the time. So it got added to the Glossary. Carlos Marron? LOVE IT!

      • jellyace August 2, 2011 at 2:18 pm #

        Always wanted to wear a Charlie Brown (Carlos Marron) costume for Halloween, but I’m really more like the fussbudget Lucy!

        This means Iker has 2 outfits: the Santa Banana and the Charlie Brown! oy vey!

  10. Suzanne August 2, 2011 at 2:19 pm #

    Oh my gosh! Yours does that too?!?! My daughter is constantly staring over my shoulder and I really do make her go away. “It’s impolite” I say… 😉

    Looks like Xabi is doing an Irish jig there!

    Benzema is the Pied Piper – can’t tell for sure, but it looks like the 1st kid following has grabbed his vest to hang on!

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 3, 2011 at 1:52 pm #

      That kid is going to grow up to be a watishista! We’d all be trying to grab Benz’s vest if we got that close!
