More Of Yesterday’s Valdebebas Session

17 Aug

Of course, both Real Madrid and Daylife added lots more pictures of training yesterday after I’d gone off for the evening. I attended (along with Shiggers, ginboonmiller and Billina) a reading in the East Village. It was a very good friend of our’s who has a new book coming out in January. She was amazing and of course, we got tipsy and giggly. Me especially, because I didn’t have time for dinner before the reading. I stumbled home, ate some ice cream and called it a night. So you get a double dose of training booty today. Believe it or not, that is Albiol’s arse on the right! He’s giving Pipita a run for his money in the Applebum stakes right there. 

“Hey gang! Let’s play a game!”

“You put your right thumb in, you put your right thumb out…”

“You put your right thumb in and you shake it all about…”

“You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around…”

“…and that’s what it’s all about!”

Mou, this is not the Hokey Pokey. It’s just the Pokey Pokey.  Awkward!

A little AHA! action with a side of Benz

“Hey, that whole Hokey Pokey thing was just a misunderstanding!”

After training, fans were waiting outside of Valdebebas to see if they could get the team’s signatures. I don’t know about you, but I think that Kaka looks like he just picked out his next victim. Skip that picture, Shiggers! It’ll just give you nightmares.

Mou looks like a total badass in his Aston Martin. Predictably, Pirata and Xabi also look boss in their Ray Bans.

Onward! More training shots to be had! (Gif courtesy of gh20siempreargentino)

    Boy, is my roommate in for a surprise the next time he borrows my laptop, because guess what my new wallpaper theme is! Booty-booty-booty-BOOTAY!! Fair is fair, right? He’s always got bikini-clad women on his laptop. About time I sexied (did I just coin a new word?) up my own computer. Gonna freak him out, though. He’s a lifelong Real Madrid fan, but I don’t think he appreciates the guys’ … er, “attributes” the same way I do.

    Now my amusement had bubbled over into genuine curiosity. WHY does Cris hike up his shorts like that? Does he just love to show a bit of leg, or is he prone to overheating and so needs to expose as much skin as possible to keep cool? XD

    You’re due in court for an underage prostitution scandal, and what do you do? Get snapped chatting on the phone while driving. I hope there’s another ironic twist to that, like he’s talking to his lawyer. Oh, Benz … Maybe that’s why he was lurking around AHA! (God, I love that name, mainly because it sounds like a combination of ABBA and WHAM!, and now an entire medley of their songs is playing in my head.) Sami’s finally put his foot down and dragged Bambi off to the other side of the training field and poor Benz is left to find new friends 😦

      i’m going to go with tan lines.

      Cris’ shorts… my guess is not wanting all that fabric rubbing on his quadzilla legs when he’s running. Or, y’know, he’s doing his daily public service 🙂

      I’m going with tan lines and freedom of movement! Either way, me gusta!

    i don’t want to scare shiggers, but if you watch “dexter”, kaka has the exact same face when he decides to kill someone…

    Is that a wedding band on Calleti !?!?

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 17, 2012 at 10:20 pm #

      Spaniards don’t wear the wedding ring on the left hand. He and Marta aren’t married but they are a seriously solid couple. They’re raising her daughter Paula together and seem to absolutely adore each other. A happy little family.

        Oh thanks 😉

    Okay, I know Shiggers will have something to say, but…

    I’d be side-eyeing someone the way Kaka is too if people were shoving their hands in my car window. I realize I stalked a bit in Philadelphia but I keep a distance and just people watch. That’s a serious breach of privacy to me… Maybe it’s just me. I dunno. That really makes me angry

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 17, 2012 at 10:16 pm #

      I don’t blame him either. Even Shigs (who gives a damn good side eye herself) wouldn’t wish that on him.

      • mygypsyspirit August 18, 2012 at 1:34 am #

        Shigs does give a good side-eye….

        • shiggers August 20, 2012 at 10:10 am #

          Ha! Thanks!

          I’m not saying Kaka doesn’t get provoked…

    of COURSE mou drives an aston martin. of course he does. don’t know if i’m amused, jealous or both (prolly both).

    and yeah … there’s “stalking” and then there’s STALKING. for me, what these people are doing is totally crossing the line. when it becomes an issue of personal safety and personal space invasion, that’s just not cool. :-\

    Esteban Granero is so hot! OMG I started seeing this like a week ago but damn he is FINE.

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 18, 2012 at 12:03 pm #

      We’ve got a lot of El Pirata on this blog – we lurrrrrrve him! Check out the El Pirata/Esteban Granero tags.
