A Clasico Result I Could Get Used To

31 Aug

It’s so hard not to be blue on this Blue Moon Friday (it’s also hard not to make stupid comments like that one), especially when a certain someone took to twitter to pic spam some of the sweetest moments of last season…I won’t say his name, I won’t say his name! So……shall we try to overcome the blues by rewinding back to a time where ‘he who must not be named’ still belonged to us and we had just kicked ASS in our second Clasico of the season?! Yes? HOLYYYYYY SHIT, we did it! Hey, the Supercopa may not be the most important title to win, but a Clasico is a Clasico and beating Barca on Wednesday feels as damn good as it does any other time. I yam happy woman.

In the Tunnel of Loveeeee

I love these jackets, which are identical to last season’s jackets minus the gold & plus the blue. I still wish I could wear one without showing off a striped boob shelf, ah such is life.

“We…love…Moubs….what is Moubs?”

“How does Sergio do this, when he just picks you guys right up?”

I can’t believe how much we were dominating from the get go. I so love when we have our shit together, because you know what that means. Early goals. With just eleven minutes under our belts, PIPIIIIIIIITA leveled our aggregate score to three all, giving us the chance to focus on taking the lead right away. Third time was the charm for our big bootied boy. An assist from Pepe and a little help from Mascherano & Pipa got it in. It also helps when you’re going up against a keeper that looks like walking guacamole, I mean your confidence can’t be too high wearing something like that. If confidence starts in the kits, then that only means good things for us this season!

Eight minutes later and we’d done it again! Well, CRISTIANOOOOOOOOOO had done it!!!! My celebration commenced and concluded with a long, loud, FUCK YEAHHHH!…ok, my eyes did water but come on, WE. HAD. THE. LEAD. IN. 19. MINUTES. Tears are warranted in this kind of situation! It wasn’t even just about the lead, it was that we were playing so freaking well. The ball was constantly being moved forward, creating like a bazillion chances (very accurate amount, right there.), and we were very close to scoring on each & every chance. The boys made us all so proud!

Another thing that makes me so proud of the team is that both of our goals were scored before Adriano got sent off, meaning no one can bring our game down by saying we couldn’t beat Barca with 11 men…them on the other hand…. 😉 We actually would have had three goals before he got sent off with Sergio’s header that was annulled due to a foul by Pepe. BOO!

That’s how you put your back into it.

Thank you Pique, but next time pull on his waistband.

Ah, Messi goal in the 45th minute. Woo-freakin-hoo. He tried to poo on our perfect first half, it did make things a little worrisome, but he definitely did not ruin what the boys had done!

“No more goals for you!”

Coming back from half time, the boys never really got their momentum back and they never seemed to take advantage of the fact that they were playing against 10 men, but we pulled through via Iker. The Saint was the one to shine in the 2nd half, making saves that, honestly, I didn’t see because I had my eyes closed for the scary parts, but I’m told they were nothing short of amaysing!

“Look Ma! No hands!”

Xabi, the last of the Classicans, received a yellow card in the 72nd minute and poor Sergio took the onscreen fall. The camera people got it twisted, even though you can’t really blame them. Sergio and yellow cards go together like Sergio and colorful pants. I did appreciate his reaction to the mishap though!  Please, thank you, and may I have some more?

Thumbs up.

Wink and lick.

Wipe and flash.

Smooth and hubba hubba.

The ogle-fest continued in the 79th minute when Pipa almost scored his second goal, it was sent to the post but he had a very special apology prepared for us. Thank you camera person for airing it!

Pipa, I like the way you work it, no diggity. We love face time but booty time is even better! The last minutes of the game were coming up & Mou decided to debut Modric, the guy almost scored too! If that’s not going to make people like you, I don’t know what will…well unless you’re like me & it takes you about half a season to have feelings for the newbies.

“I’m out bishes.”

“Bless you, child.”

AND WE WON! WE DID IT!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, El Clasico Gods. We so deserved this!

“Yes, we did!”

Whatchya got there?

“Oh, made you blink!”

I wish I could do this without hurting a boob.

I love this pic so much, I hate to say it but it’s like the last family photo now that our Pirata is a Ranger. 😦 Pirata is the cherry on top! And what is Lass looking at? And shame on Callejon for covering Xabi’s face. And I can’t look at Adan without hearing “VAMOSSSS JODERRRRRR!”.

Ack, I love these boys.

    Suuuuch a ridiculous game. Drama, and shouting, and yellow cards- oh my! Have to give Mesut some props for running at breakneck speed basically the entire time he was on the pitch. And to Iker for being fantastic in the second half (sidenote: his kit makes me think “Tony the Tiger,” I can’t help it). Also, having a bit of a bi-teamual moment because of that pic of Xavi; it’s the gorgeous angle he’s running on. My track athlete heart appreciates such things.

    I love that Modric probably has no clue whatsoever what Ramos is saying to him, but still lets himself get dragged along into pictures with him 😀

    “We…love…Moubs….what is Moubs?”

    BWAHAHAHAHA! love it!

    i think iker and victor should have an ugly kit-off. between iker’s blinding nuclear orange disaster and victor’s multi-shaded hideous green trainwreck, it’d be a tough call. the loser (winner?) would have to play in his under armour for the rest of the season. 😀

    sergio is so good at welcoming the newbies (and canteras) and making them feel welcome. he really seems like a very warm, caring person. bless. (goodness, modric is wee, isn’t he?!)

    i will never, ever get tired of seeing iker hoist trophies. 😀 first title of the season … hope it isn’t the last! 🙂

    What made me smile most was at the end when the guys were posing for the family photo, Pepe was tickling Iker, causing Iker to thrash about like a little boy. A quick moment that I figure Unamadridista would have enjoyed.
