Arrival In Sevilla/Marcelo & Pepe Meet The Fans/Today We Train With…Iker/Alma Gala

9 Mar

Our fine gentlemen arrived in Sevilla tonight in anticipation of tomorrow’s game against Real Betis. I can’t believe they flew. Why didn’t they just take the AVE? It’s like 2  1/2 hours by high speed train right? The flight can’t be more than an hour but I guess when you’re Real Madrid, you don’t have to deal with all the crap like security lines, etc. I’m guessing they probably get to skip that because everyone of them would get pulled aside for a pat down. Because seriously, if I were a TSA agent and they came through my airport, I’d be conducting as many first team strip searches as humanly possible.

200 fans awaited Los Blancos to cheer them on their welcome. Afterwards, some lucky fans had the chance to meet with the ever bubbly goofballs Marcelo & Pepe, who had autograph signing duty. Cuteness ensued (and the metal braces are back)!

And the Today We Train With… series continues with Iker. You get almost 5 minutes of Iker going through his paces (actually pretty interesting) to The Black Eyed Peas “I Got A Feeling” – that’s a warning in case you want to watch with the sound off. I know I did.

I’m guessing that the video might be blocked in a few countries due to the music, so here’s a direct link to view it.

And finally, the Real Madrid Foundation had their annual Alma Gala on Thursday night honoring Placido Domingo, who is a huge Madridista. Of course, since the boys were in training, they weren’t in attendance (except for the two below). Mou, along with captains Iker and Sergio appeared via video.

Angel Di Maria and Fabio Coentrao being our current injured players were in the audience representing. Also in attendance? Some of the Castilla Muppet Babies.

And they also did a bit of a tribute to the late Marquitos, which is a lovely thing to do. In general, they celebrated Real Madrid’s 11oth birthday in style.

    ❤ Iker Casillas ❤ If I took even one of those dives it would take me a bottle of Aleve to recover.

      I’d probably just lay there and die. Although I did make one legendary save in a game of pub soccer in which I slipped in a puddle of beer and ended up doing a split. I don’t think that my body has been that flexible since I was 8. Must of been the Guinness. Anyhow, did I stop the shot? Yes, I sure did. Are all the boys afraid of me now? Why, yes, they sure are. 😉 They should have known not to challenge me.

    Some things to say about this post-
    I love, love, LOVE Marcelos watches. Pink, purple, etc., I’m too weak for this tempation. As well as for the Marcelo & Pepe + baby shot.
    Fábio on this picture is way too delicious. And there again, the watch. The boys know how the wear the right things. Well … at least with the watches 😉 He should wear suits more often.
    And I almost forgot- Kakás legs. No comment. Sigh. *.*
