Sami’s Back To Practice, More Albiol, Manlove! Music! Dancing! Traveling! Riding!

6 Apr

Hooray! Good to see Sami back to practice today. I hope he’s feeling 100% better and will be game fit soon. Muppet Babies Alex, Morata, Jesé, Nacho, Carvajal, Mandi and Jesús joined in on the training today as well.

I’m not even going to speculate what Kaka’s so enthused about. I’ll leave that to Shiggers’ fevered imagination. I’m guessing she thinks something along the lines of a Saw III scenario.  Me? I think what goes on inside of his head is more of the Nyan Cat variety. also did an interview with Albiol (sure is a pr0-Raul day, isn’t it?) He said that the atmosphere in the dressing room is great and Cristiano is an awesome player while shooting the photog a thumbs up. As you were.

The RM website seems to be promoting Pipita-style man love with this cover shot. Me gusta!

Xabi is in music recommendation mode over on Twitter. He said that Simple Song by The Shins is a “great song for this rainy morning” and also shared You and I by Wilco. You’re up, Pirata! Now you have to recommend something tasteful and indie for our delectation.

Speaking of music-related thangs, out ‘baller Anton Hysen is on Sweden’s version of Dancing with the Stars (which is called Let’s Dance)! Watch him cha cha-ing (quite well I may add) his fine boo-tay to Moves Like Jagger. You can follow along with his progress on his blog. He posted two adorkable videos of himself practicing at home. Love this guy – he seems like such a sweetie.

Sergio is still in Qatar. The scuttlebutt is that he is staying at the W Hotel and is leaving tomorrow. Some lucky fans bumped into Sese and the tablecloth he had tied around his neck. I swear I’ve seen Iker wearing that one. I shouldn’t be surprised, we know these guys like to swap clothes.

And sometimes fan art goes horribly wrong with absolutely hilarious results. Here’s Manuel “Duckie” Neuer atop a stallion Sergio. I can’t unsee this and if I have to suffer, I’m taking you all down with me. Sorry.

This comes via TforTravis.  I think we can file this one solidly under “WTF?” and “Things That Make You Go Hmmmm”

And on that note, my dears, I’m off to lunch! I’ll post more later, but just in case I forget: Chag Sameach to those celebrating Passover and Happy Easter to the Christians among you.

    That first picture is utterly hilarious. We always know when Sami’s back – because it’s when Mesut starts ignoring Karim – who continues following him around!

    it’s like sergio became a centaur or something … do … not … want!

    What is most disturbing is that if you think about it, essentially Sergio would be cobsiderd naked in the horse pic 😦 so awkward. Ugh. I wish I could have unseen it.

      I have NO problem with naked Sergio. 😉 naked Sergio as a horse; however, is a whole other story …

        my point exactly! There’s that one pic of him posing with just his booties, but that was when he was still a bebe. We need another with mature-and-filled-out Sergio, with some nice stubble mmmmmm. THAT I won’t object to.

        HAHA! I know, right? Disconcerting to say the least.

      Sorry, I had to make you all suffer with me. It’s burned in my brain too.
