Working for the Weekend

10 Feb

I say every training session should start off with a look from Crisepe & a look at Cris’ manty lines. Bum, bum, bums were everywhere as the boys prepared for Sunday’s match against Levante. Twenty one first teamers plus Castilla bunnies Mejias and Merchan took to the field to train with Mou, Rui, & Silvino Louro, while injured Lass & Altintop trained indoors.

Kaka has got some new leg adornments…wait til you see them, they’re….um, yeah.

Oh hai Iker!

Oh hai goal booties!

Mou was all smiles when he got a little visit from friend & fellow coach, Ricardo Formosinho. See what a haircut & a friend can do for ya? 😉

And lastly…Kaka’s new shinguards. So the name tributes are sweet but Aslan? Is a lion Kaka’s spirit animal? If so, beware. I mean if the thought of Koo Koo Kaka coming after you *cough* Shiggers *cough* wasn’t scary enough, the thought of Koo Koo Kaka sending his big ol’ Kitty Patronus after you will do the trick. Sorry Shiggers, Lozil had me do it 😉 But she means to terrify with love!

Now that there are no more training pics to look at, what is there to do? 😦 Well Albiol has to make good on his promise, even Arbeloa is getting anxious for the new look! I’m officially on Haircut Watch 2012, apurate Albiol! Oh & shout out to Lozil who had to be up at an insane hour this morning and haul herself & her tools of torture out on a winter morning journey. Leave a hello for the lady below! 🙂 And just curious, but how many of you knew it was me right away? Did the bum bum bums give me away? *sigh*

    I’m so happy to see Sunshine out on the pitch, training with the others again 🙂

    This may sound weird but there is a slight difference in writing styles between the two of you, so I can usually tell when you are the one doing the post 😉

    I’m not sure how I feel about those shinguards….

      I got the same feeling as well, I don’t know how but I know who has written the post 🙂

    those shinguards are just… yeah- i don’t see the lion link, or is the lion supposed to represent cris? they got all the other important names on there, there was just his name missing…

    The shinguards, wow. I had no idea that people decorated them. Or is it just Kaka? I don’t know what scares me worse, the lion or WE BELONG TO JESUS.

      The lion is just freaking weird. The WE BELONG TO JESUS is just freaking weirder.

      The Guardian made fun of it once – referring to him as the “Property of Jesus Christ, possible loan-prospect for Arsenal.”

    Kaka perpetually freaks me out. I’m just going to say it. It’s like watching a time-bomb. HE IS GOING TO KILL US ALL!

    As for “We belong to Jesus” – I hate to be ungracious (and to be channeling Sister Christine – the old witch who taught me chemistry) at this point, but Jesus himself probably had opinions about people who kept insisting they belonged to him – based on Matthew 6:5.

    Quanto a noticia vinculada na Capa do Diario Marca desse sabado, posso afirmar que em nenhum momento abri porta para uma saida do Real Madrid. Estou feliz e sigo absolutamente focado no sucesso de minha carreira aqui.

    About the news on the cover of Diario Marca of this saturday, I can affirm that in any moment I have opened doors for a negotiation to leave Real Madrid. I am happy and keep focus absolutely on the success of my career here.

      Regarding Kaka’s fb and twitter post, let’s see if I can get my translation right. I think he pulled an Iker and used Google Translate:

      “Quanto a noticia vinculada na Capa do Diario Marca desse sabado, posso afirmar que em nenhum momento abri porta para uma saida do Real Madrid. Estou feliz e sigo absolutamente focado no sucesso de minha carreira aqui.”

      English:
      “About the news on the cover of Marca this Saturday, I can confirm that at NO moment have I opened the door for an exit from Real Madrid. I am happy and remain completely focused on the success of my career here.”

      “Nenhum” Is like “ningun” in Spanish. It’s meant to negate. Typically you would put “não nenhum” but kind of like in English, they leave things off a lot. More so in Brasil than in Portugal, but both have their quirks 😉

      Now that I’ve gone all geeky linguist on you…. Don’t worry. He isn’t planning to leave 😀

        Thank you so much for clarifying! The language challenged among us are most appreciative! 🙂

        • mygypsyspirit February 11, 2012 at 9:14 pm #

          You’re welcome. My Portuguese isn’t great, but I understood that his translation was wrong. I think they all need to stop using Google translate!

          The club has a social media team who run the official twitter and facebook pages (and have quite a lot of interaction with the website). I think they should make the players run the translations through those people before posting them…. At least when it comes to things that have to do with their career, like that.

            Wow! What a difference one word makes! Thank you so much for that clarification! I got so worried even if I knew Shiggers might be relieved!
