Bits & Bobs: Training, The Mayor, Tourism Visitors And Candid Shots

4 Aug

Well, my lazy arse is finally sitting down to update the blog. I conked out early last night and then I’ve been running around all morning. There’s yesterday’s training to catch up on and later today, The Ramos will meet the press.

Mou invited the lucky fans who were waiting outside for a glimpse of the team into practice! So awesome for them. (Additional pictures via GF Sport)

The Mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa, stopped by for a visit. He presented the team with a framed proclamation honoring the club’s 110th anniversary.

The Tourism Board of Spain was also there and they brought along some lucky guests who were able to meet the team and get some autographs.

And now on to some personal pictures! El Pirata tweeted a picture of the band that was apparently playing at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Guess he was hanging out in the hotel bar.

The Baby tweeted this thumbs up shot after the match. He’s so adorable! I wonder who he had take the photo for him? I’m glad he hasn’t taken the duckface pose from Karim as his signature move!
Calleti posted a bunch of pictures on his Instagram account including some from home with his friends, Marta and his twin Juanmi.

David Silva tweeted some pictures from training with Manchester City teammates Mario Balotelli and Joleon Lescott.

Neymar always has really fun pictures on his Instagram account and these are no exception. He either looks scorching hot or totally goofy, doesn’t he?

And finally, what we all enjoy most: Marcelo and Clarice’s Webstagram photos! Seriously, they may be the cutest family in existence.

I love how Enzo seems to have tiny brightly colored Crocs for every occasion. That kid could not be more smooshable, could he?

More later,

    Someone needs to make a statue of Cris. A bronze statue, of course. 😉 He’s just so perfect.

    And what’s Marcelo’s instagram address? His pics make me happy. That Enzo is too cute, just like his Papi.

    I love how bored all the players in background look during the speeches in the second video. haha

      I love how, while the first speaker is praising the Real’s prestige and professionalism, Karim, Sami and Mesut are messing around in the back and trying desperately not to laugh out loud. Only gets funnier as the vid progresses as, slowly but surely, the players lose interest and start fidgeting. Even Xabi cannot maintain his composure! XD

      No worries – I make mistakes all the time. Happens when I type fast.

        Plus I guess having to name every person they put in pics with themselves is hard

    What’s Calleti instagram? If you don’t mind telling me 🙂

    i know calleti is a twin but every time i see his brother, it startles me! (he’s on the right in that photo and his brother is on the left, correct?) and paula, his girlfriend (i think that’s her name?) is stunning! they look great together! 🙂

    with the golden tan and honey coloured hair, sergio looks even more like top gun era val kilmer now!
