Bits & Bobs: Vacays, Videos, Very Compromising Positions & Much More

10 Jul

I had one of those days again – really hectic and I’ve got a bit of a headache going on. As I work during the day, I take notes, paste URLS, etc. on Notepad of stuff that I want to write about, interesting bits, etc. So today, I had a HUGE file going and my computer threw the Blue Screen of Death and I lost it all. I’m sure there were some major gems in there (or not!) but I’m going to try to add all that I can remember before bedtime. First up, some vacation goodies!

We rarely get to see Pepe and Ana Sofia together. Here they are with their family members vacationing in Menorca. Sofia looks great, doesn’t she? I think her due date is the end of the summer?

I love how Pepe is interacting with the kids. I think he’s going to make a great papi. He’s going to be one of those hands on dads, I bet.

Meanwhile over in Ibiza, Pepe Reina and Stevie Gerrard were hanging out together. Here’s a few shots, but if you want more follow the link.

Cesc and his ladyfriend Daniella Seeman were on vacation in Porto Cervo in Sardinia. I’m amazed that she wears those wedges all the time. She must be tiny, because Cesc ain’t very tall.

Cesc looks like when you throw a doggie in the water and they flail. Sigh. Well, he’s coordinated on the pitch and that’s all we can ask, right? 😉 More shots here.

Nando is in Dubai as previously reported and a store (Via Rodeo) that he shopped at tweeted a picture of him while he was there. Somewhere, Sergio is jealous because he’s having mall withdrawal.

Three cheers for watishista Jellyace who woke me up (REALLY WOKE ME UP) first thing this morning when she tweeted me these shots of Mario Götze, who suffered from a very embarrassing public boner or you know, he got a fish caught in his pants or something.

Bad enough it happens, even worse with the paps around. He was just caught adjusting himself the other day. He and his girl seem to have a good sense of humor about it though. I mean, what are you going to do? Wait, don’t answer that!

I’m also most grateful to the gorgeous Karalyn West who is the girlfriend of the delicious Stu Holden. She tweeted this smiley morning shot of him. Adorbs.

Oh Stu! How I love thee! Yesterday, we showed El Pirata meeting with the kids from the RM Foundation campus. I found 2 videos on RM’s You Tube Channel. The first is the visit with the kids.

The second video is a compilation honoring El Pirata’s 25th birthday. It’s so awesome! Lots of bebe Granero clips to enjoy.

Arbeloa’s brother Raul (not that Raul) tweeted this shot of Arbie and bros drinking out of the Cup with straws. Too cute.

Oh and I found some more lovely pictures from Iniesta’s wedding today. It looks like it was an emotional occasion for them both. They look so in love! And Valeria is adorable. I see watishista Uli also left me one of these pictures in the comments tonight as well – thanks!

It’s making me all verklempt looking at these pictures! Mazel tov, kiddies. May you grow in love more each day and chuck that little woobin’s cheeks for me please – she’s too cute. (Iniesta pix via Davinia9Torres)

Marcelo is off with the national team again and he’s been posting up a storm. Does this pose look familiar? It should! Enzo copped it yesterday.


Sergio was meeting the fans again and then spent the day with the bulls. He was at a ranch watching the matadors practice (I think – I don’t know anything really about bullfighting and prefer to keep it that way).

Here’s his tweet:

Big news: it appears that Sergio and Lara have broken up for the third time. It was on Telecinco and here’s an article. Guess that explains her absence at the Euros and the parties afterwards. It says they split before the Euros.

In other news, Galatasaray has announced that they have opened official talks with RM  in regards to the transfer of Hamit Altintop. We knew it was going to happen but I still feel bad for Hamit. He had shit luck being injured and then there just never was a place for him. I wish him the best of luck with his new team.

I rolled my eyes and kind chuckled at this joking article at Gawker today: Crazy Mixed-Up Women Hate Sports But Like Men. But when I read the article about the research it was based on, my eyes rolled so far back in my head I thought they’d never return. Their sample was “19 women in heterosexual marriages“? That’s your sample? 19 women? “Study participants were between 26 and 43 years old. Of the 19 women, 15 had children at home. The sampling included one black and one Latina. The rest were white.” Um, okay. If I had done my thesis with that small a sample, I probably wouldn’t have graduated. I’d also love to know region of the country, socioeconomic status or did they just call up 19 people they knew? One thing I know, I’m going to write up my research now as my advisor keeps bugging me to do, because shit, they’ll publish anything. So married ladies, in case you weren’t aware, you’re not watching footy for your own enjoyment, you’re watching it to maintain your relationship with your husband. Just so you know.

Whatever, now I have another excuse not to get married. I want my love of sports to be pure. And about me. 😉 Updated: I found the actual research article. I’ll have to give it a read through to see if I’ve judged them unfairly based on the media reaction. If you are so inclined, read it for yourself.

I did however enjoy one thing: This KickTV video of the “LEAKED Unreleased David Beckham H&M Commercial: NO AIRBRUSHING!” that watishista Lizzie sent me to cheer me up (thank you! It worked!)

And on that note, I think I’ll end this post! I’ve got a couple other things to put up tonight and then I really need to get myself to sleep.

    Ok, so I personally can’t wait to see Pepe as a great daddy! I love how sweet he seems off pitch 🙂 And onto the big part that I’m sure Maisougio was happy about- the supposed Sergio and Lara break-up. I have to question though, how could they have been broken up before the Euros if he has a pic with the trophy making the L sign? (Said pic which is currently the wallpaper on my iPhone *blushes*). I dont know what to make of it, I finally warmed up to him settling down and making bubbas! Coukd that have been the reason behind his look of sadness when surrounded by the little bubbas, and the L pose woth the trophy was a hint to Lara? So many possibilities! Finally, the Iniestas just look so darn happy and cute! Looking at their pictures made me feel all smiley 🙂

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 11, 2012 at 12:47 am #

      He’s trying to win her back? Convince her of his sincerity? We’re sticking by our story that the L was for me and the M tat above his junk is for Maisougio. 😉

      • GinaM July 11, 2012 at 10:52 am #

        yea I agree I think it’s just rumours because why would he dedicate the win in Euro for her if they broke up? On the other hand I don’t remember them posting in the papers pics of her being there like the other wags.

        • April July 11, 2012 at 3:11 pm #

          Agreed- I don’t know what to make of the article. She wasnt there and that was suspicious, but he tweeted their first initials together and did his little “L” sign several times. So unless there is another “L” in his life or he is trying hard to win her back, I am assuming she just wasnt around or available to be there.

          I’d like to see Sergio with kids… I feel like he’s getting all grown up like now… and with all those bubbas around, he looked like he wanted some of his own!

    Does marcelo have a wife or a baby mama nd if he does y is she never on his twitter

  3. Allison July 11, 2012 at 2:17 am #

    Holy crap, I guess I’ve never seen Pepe Reina in all his glory before. Come to mama!!! Seriously!

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 11, 2012 at 11:10 am #

      He’s a big hot daddy. I’ve always had a crush on him. Yummy.

      • Allison July 11, 2012 at 3:12 pm #

        I like a baldie. 😀

      • maddy July 12, 2012 at 12:08 pm #

        pepe reina.. sergio.. you no longer get mesut. dont be a baller hog, lo’

    Perhaps that’s the reason the hair came off, a fresh start! The picture with the trophy says TQM, is that IM language for te quiero mucho? S&L, I can’t quite decode that, but am working on it!

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 11, 2012 at 11:11 am #

      Yep, TQM = te quiero mucho I’m guessing the S&L is for Sergio & Lara but who knows, it could mean something else.

      • Kristine July 11, 2012 at 11:22 am #

        I dunno, he’s been on break this whole time and no sign of her anywhere.

        • headbandsandheartbreak July 11, 2012 at 11:25 am #

          She definitely wasn’t at the Euros or the Euros parties. I think they’re dunzo. Again.

          Maisougio and I have another theory that he has a secret boyfriend named Leonard and all the L signs are really for him. 😉

          • HermosaChica July 11, 2012 at 1:29 pm #

            I really wasn’t going to hurt my brain with this Sexio & Lara issue, but I vote for the Leonard theory.

            And Lozil, I can sympathize with you. Just recently my hard disk decided to kick the bucket. All my personal files were saved before hand, but sadly..ALL my football photos are gone. I’m still grieving. 😦

            • headbandsandheartbreak July 11, 2012 at 1:48 pm #

              Oh Chica! That is the WORST! I need to do some backups on the work computer, because I got another blue screen of death this morning. 😦

          • jellyace July 11, 2012 at 1:47 pm #

            I gotta come clean. L is for Lellyace! bwahahaha!

            • Allison July 11, 2012 at 3:10 pm #

              No, it’s for A-LL-ison. 😉

          • Ellie July 11, 2012 at 6:11 pm #

            Its David Luiz http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRG0PYVaEHyggBY3R40Ydh_NGB8v6jNGWpHBcCvrkqf325rInxpaQ cant say I blame him, they both wear number 4 and are a bit loopy

            😉

          • Ellie July 11, 2012 at 6:18 pm #

            I stand by my view its David Luiz http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRG0PYVaEHyggBY3R40Ydh_NGB8v6jNGWpHBcCvrkqf325rInxpaQ
            They both play in number 4, both are known for their hair, and both are crazy (though SR seems far less so) both love kissing and hugging team mates

            😉

            I may have posted this twice having a blonde day

            • Allison July 12, 2012 at 1:48 am #

              I love this theory!

              • Ellie July 12, 2012 at 11:25 am #

                That would be a great Bromance, talking about hair and Torres

          • black widow July 11, 2012 at 11:22 pm #

            it isn’t nando’s middle name initial, by any chance? luis, maybe? heh. :p

      • Mel July 11, 2012 at 1:07 pm #

        The something else is the option I choose 😉 does the article say anything about who ended it with who? And it says they have broken up for the 3. time. I now of 2 counting the most reasent before the euro!

  5. kfunk22 July 11, 2012 at 10:18 am #

    my god, this post!

    1. pepe interacting with his family is precious.
    2. marcelo. what else needs to be said here?
    3. pirata! snorting at the bruce springsteen soundtrack to that celebratory video!
    4. that beckham video is just plain hysterical.

  6. jellyace July 11, 2012 at 1:50 pm #

    The one advantage of us living in time zones half a day away is that one of us is always monitoring the footie news! So HB&HB never sleeps!
