After a restorative nap aka “drunken face plant on my bed after the match” I’m awake and ready to celebrate with a hearty HALA MADRID! Sergio tweeted this picture from the locker room. I love Pirata, Calleti and Sergio’s commitment to being photographed half naked. Much appreciated, gentlemen! He said “Three points that feel like glory. Now more work. Hala Madrid!“
He also tweeted this shot and said “Good night all of you. Now to rest and think about Bayern. A great photo with “The Marshal.” Vamos!”
He wasn’t the only one who took to Twitter. Cristiano posted this shot with his ever present buddies Marcelo and Pepe and said “Mission accomplished. Thank you for the support today on our win against Barcelona.” I see your ear in the background, Mesut!
Snarkmaster Xabi Alonso posted this shot from the Camp Nou and said “Relaxing and listening to Belle & Sebastian” The song was Another Sunny Day. Cheeky fucker. I love him.
Here are a couple of beautiful shots from the match that I can’t resist posting. I’m just so in love with our boys tonight!
Meanwhile back in Madrid, the fans were going nuts driving around Cibeles, waving flags and chanting, filled with excitement (can you blame them?!) Cibeles shots from @RMadridInfo
When the boys got back home, over 600 fans were waiting for them at Barajas Airport to welcome them as heroes. People were going nuts.
Here are three videos of the fans waiting at the airport. I admire their ability to get their arses to the airp0rt. I could barely make it the three blocks from the pub. I was just completely drained of energy and emotionally wiped. They must be running on pure adrenalin.
And finally, this tweet cracked me up. I’m not trying to be petty, but I do take a bit of pleasure in wiping the smug condescending smirks off some people’s faces. Now please understand, I’m not saying every cule is a total dick because that’s not true at all, but there’s a few folks I personally know who are truly humorless about their team and pretty darn nasty when it comes to bashing my team to my face, so I must admit, I’m gloating a wee bit today.
But consolations must go out to our watishista bi-teamuals and cules who are suffering today. We well know how it feels to be in your position. Please know that we love you, but we’re going to be whooping it up here pretty hardcore for a few days, so we understand if you’re avoiding us. xo
