Gee, Kaka, thanks a lot for getting between the Double As! They need as much together time as possible. You should have put yourself between Albiolita. Work on that, wouldya?
The team took the short (less than an hour) flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and checked into the Four Seasons hotel.
Fabio, that hat’s a big ol’ no, honey.
At the hotel, the team conducted a signing for lucky fans and posed for photographs with them. Sigh. How come they never do this in NYC?!
The more I see of Sergio’s new tattoo, the less I like it. Ugh.
Cristiano made a special fan’s day. Young Salvador Arena has cancer and his wish was to meet his idol, Cristiano. Cris met with Salvador and his family, took pictures, signed autographs and gave the young man a shirt with his name on it.
Here’s some leftover post-training shots when the guys were signing for the fans. These come via GF Sports, FootballVT and Luhreyah.
Oooh! What’s going on here? Lookit how Benzy is staring at Mesut and how Sami has a grip on his arm (and Karim’s clenched fist!) Boys! Calm down! There’s enough of Mesut to go around! Bambi is such a little vixen.
Sese tat close up – notice the dogtags with 15 on them.
Iker with a bebe in a Real Madrid onesie.
Hope he practices his baby holding before he has his own kids. Yikes!
Kickoff is just about 3 hours away. I sincerely hope that I can stay awake long enough to watch the match. Those of you there in person, have a great time and let us know all about your experience!
Updated: Here’s a training video in English.
