The Morning After

25 Mar

The boys got right back to work today (closed training) in preparation for the match in Cyprus vs. APOEL. In good news, it looks like The Silence is going to come to an end!

Sami & Mou will speak to the press tomorrow about the Champion’s League. I will certainly enjoy Sami, looking fantastic in blue giving one of his patented level-headed well-spoken interviews.

Called up for tomorrow are:

Goalkeepers: Casillas, Adán and Tomás Mejías
Defenders: Varane, Arbeloa, Marcelo, Ramos, Albiol, Coentrão and Pepe
Midfielers: Altintop, Sahin, Khedira, Özil, Granero and Kaká
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema e Higuaín

Xabi is suspended. Di María, Carvalho, Callejón and Lass are injured.

It was a good day for our young’uns. Muppet Baby Jese made his debut at the Bernabeu. He posted this piccie with Sergio in the locker room. You’d think that Sese’s purple top would dominate the photo until you notice Jese’s optical illusion dad cardigan. Some habits you shouldn’t pick up from the big boys, Mup!

And Rio Ferdinand singled out The Baby for a tweet yesterday. He likes the look of him. So do we Rio, so do we. Our baby played quite a match. His gangly limbs always amaze me. Speaking of gangly limbs, did anyone see Crouchie’s golazo against Man City?! Ooof.

One of the most indelible moments yesterday was when Iker took Sergio to task at the half. Sergio tried to explain. Iker was having none of it. Alvaro tried to listen in the beginning and then got the hell out of there. I don’t think he likes it when Daddy & Daddy fight.

Speaking of Arbeloa, there was a rather hot picture of him over on GFSports today. Mmmm, that is one fine lookin’ man!

El Pirata tweeted that he was at a Red Bull BMX bike event in Madrid today (of course he was!). He posted this one shot, but GF sports had two additional ones. The first is from the same event and the second is him astride a bike. Looking hot and hipster.

Meanwhile, over in London on Saturday, Nando was examining his chest to see if he had finally grown any hair there. Answer: Nope.

Why does that man manage to look good no matter what he’s doing? UEFA.com had a video all about Mesut! We could use a little of that all up in here. (Keep your eyes peeled for a guest appearance from Laverne & Shirley!)

Note the old bleachy tips hair. Glad that’s gone! Watishista Maddy sent in this great pic/gif spam of Mesut being angry. It’s adorable, which I’m sure was not the reaction he was going for.

Something really foul though? Complete and Utter Doucheweed of the Day has to go to Houston Dynamo’s Colin Clark who called a (reportedly 12 year old) ball boy a “fucking faggot” and there’s no doubting what he said because the cameras and sideline mics picked it up when he shouted it in the kid’s face. What a tool! Out of line doesn’t begin to cover it. Watishista notoriousjk sent me a link to the story. Unacceptable, buddy. You deserve a lengthy suspension and some education, pronto. Classless ignorant fuck.

Anyhoo, I’m going to go do Sunday type things. I’ll be back later undoubtedly with travel pictures, etc.

    I first heard about it because a friend of mine was at the game & then I read the Seattle newspaper’s report about it & good on Brooks at Dirty Tackle for calling that classless asshole out on his shit. How can you be “heated up” so much at the 7 or whatever, early in the game, mark, that you call a teenager/preteen a gay slur? Unacceptable.

    Nothing good comes out of Texas (ok I’m not saying that players on other teams haven’t done similar things, or that the fans of other respective clubs having said things like this, I’ve heard it from my own MLS team’s fans so……yeah, but Texas *shakes head*)

    Thank goodness there’s some Pirata to class up this post 🙂

      Hey now, I’m from Texas and I wouldn’t have done that kinda crap. Especially to a kid. Azzholes can come from anywhere, not just Texas. Although, to be fair, we do things bigger, don’t we?

    I was watching the match yesterday & when they went off for the half I was wondering what Iker was giving out to Sese for. Sese kept trying to put his arm around him to hug it out but Iker was not having it!

    And please oh please, someone get a screen cap of Arbeloa without his shirt after the match. ¡Madre mia!

    I told my roommate that Iker was likely to rip into Ramos at halftime for that mistake. But I thought they’d at least make it to the locker room first. I had to chuckle at Ramos trying to defend himself. And this may make me a terrible person, but I find Iker extremely sexy when he’s angry. I don’t know why, but I just do.

    Well we all know what happens after couples argue 😉 I just wish one of the cameramen had thought of following them into the tunnel!
