It’s Gijon Time!

2 Dec

Ah, our adorable boys are in the midst of some big dorktasm here (as is Marcelo in the next picture!). I made it through surgery. Shiggers and I had an insane cabbie on the way home from the hospital who got pulled over by the cops for speeding. He didn’t seem to want to shut off the meter while we were waiting for the cop to check his license and reg, but Shiggers firmly insisted. He also told the cop that he had three other tickets! Fun! Anyhow, I made it home in one piece, but that ride gave me a wee adrenalin rush, so here’s a few piccies before I get some sleep.

You know who was looking super pretty today? El Pirata. You just go on with your beauteous self, young man, don’t let me stop you!

Sergio tweeted a photo of himself and Iker in their travel outfits. Note Mesut in the background and no clue what hand gesture El Pirata is making!

And the boys are already in Gijon! Here are a few pictures of their arrival and on that note, I’m off to bed. I really need some sleep!

Doh! Before I forget, here’s the list of the players called up for the game. I really, really hope that they rest Cris for El Clasico.

Goalkeepers:  Casillas, Adan, Mejias
Defenders: Ramos, Varane, Pepe, Marcelo, Albiol, Coentrao
Midfielders: Kaka, Ozil, Di Maria, Sahin, Altintop, Callejon, Lass, Granero, Khedira
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Higuain, Benzema

– Lozil

    Looks like El Pirata is flashing everyone’s favorite finger..except for Sergio, we know he’s a thumb man.

    Jeez the universe does not want you to slow down does it?! Have a good nap, I’m glad the surgery went well 🙂

      It apparently does not! I blew up the piccie and I think you’re right. Naughty El Pirata! He’s going for the Martin Caceres schlong in the background shock value isn’t he? Well, seriously nothing beats that.

    That first pic of Sergio is unfortunate. He looks like the Crackovia version of himself. But I agree about Granero looking pretty. How YOU doin’? ;o)

    Alright, who the f*@k was that ref?! He was clearly insane! He even tried to book Iker AFTER the match ended! WTF?!

      Itturalde. He’s only 7 red cards away from the most ever in La Liga. He’s also an orthodontist. 😉

        OMFG He clearly has his eyes on the prize. I’ve never seen anything like it. And God help his patients!

        P.S. Barca has another manita going! 😛

          Itturalde makes for a scary dentist. “You didn’t floss! Yellow Card!” He was such an Angry Bird on the pitch whipping out those yellow cards at any chance he could get.

      He was just a mess. “A yellow card for you… and you… and one for you just for looking at me funny…” I sure hope he’s not scheduled for the clasico. Ugh… I’m already losing sleep over it.
