UPDATED: Bits & Bobs: Awards, A Case of Mistaken Identity, Kaka Kraziness, Puppies!, Bebes! And More

28 Oct

While I’ve been working, lots of bits and bobs have piled up so let’s start with Iker and his new Instagram fetish, shall we? He posted some shots from the Prince of Asturias awards.

Watishista MyGypsySpirit found these shots of Xavi from the ceremony being misidentified once again. She pointed out that one was in Portuguese, but the other was Spanish! As Maisougio quipped “How does the Spanish media not know their classiest from their grassiest???” LMAO!

Iker also posted a picture of his and Sara’s puppy, Doce, chilling out on the couch. I need to take a page from Doce’s book and do more of that.

He also posted a shot from what had to be his summer vacation as he said it was the Canon de Colorado. What is this thing about Spaniards going to the Grand Canyon in flip flops?! And jumping around near the edge?!  It reminds me of Cesc’s trip there. As watishista Kfunk22 said at the time, it ‘has 127 Hours written all over it’

Seriously, if you’re going to stomping around canyons or climbing rocks, WEAR APPROPRIATE SHOES. The team has enough injuries, thank you very much. Plus there are snakes out there. ::shudder::

Speaking of scary things, he posted this picture of Kaka with an absolutely ear to ear grin. Shigs, you may want to step away from the computer for a wee bit and then come back for the Enzo pictures. Watishistas Jenny and blackwidow saw all of these shots and thought immediately of poor Shiggers. You can see why. Most shots and gifs from hala_madrid.

Yep, that’s A LOT of Kaka action. I like how he talks about training with Cristiano who is a ‘good example’ for him. Aw! Criska love!

Marcelo is recuperating and is his wonderful, positive self. He posted this shot of his cast (with art work by his brother in law, Caio) saying “Life’s too short ! #behappy” He also posted some other great shots  as did Clarice.c

And this wonderful couple can’t resist showing off their pride and joy, which means it’s Enzo time!! You can’t go wrong with a little Enzoboy! Here he is with Nalla, swimming, walking and napping.

I love how Nalla and Enzo always seem to conk out wherever they are, wrapped up in each other. A boy and his dog. So sweet!

Also sweet is Ivano Modric. His mama, Vanja, just got on Instagram and has been posting pictures of her bebe and her sweetie, Luka.

UPDATED: I can’t believe that I forgot to add this picture that I saved the other day. Nuri & Omer Sahin have matching Mercedes SUVs!

Here’s one of our favorite ‘ballers as a bebe. That wee one is none other than Juan Mata Garcia! I’m guessing that must be his sister Paula. His dad was a forward and spent most of his career at Real Oviedo.

Mesut posted this shot prior to the Dortmund game, the less about which is said, the better. But how delish does he look?

My beloved Arsenal bebe Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain decided to try on the headgear of another sport and watishista P sent this along knowing it would make my day.

Here’s something super cool: this gentleman, Norman Duncan, is a 100 year old Arsenal fan. He’s been going to matches to support his team since he was 8 years old! Isn’t that incredible?! Now that’s a fan!

And three cheers for FC Dallas goalie Chris Seitz, who put his MLS career on hold to donate bone marrow to someone that he didn’t even know when he was notified that he was a match.

You can read about his incredible story here and here. You, sir, are nothing but class. Bless you and your willingness to help a fellow human being.

Watishista Jules tracked down the “El Clasico” deli that we’ve been talking about lately. Here’s her report from her visit with the exact location: “The deli is actually at the SW corner of W 55th and 10th Ave and has the generic name of 10th Avenue Gourmet up on the awning. Sadly, the folks who work the counter definitely think you’re crazy if you try to order by the player names rather than the listed numbers. They also find you certifiable if you have to stand in front of the board for 5 minutes, daydreaming about taking a bite out of Xabi (even if only by proxy) before sadly ordering something less spicy. I got the Sami Khedira sammie, which was pretty fantastic despite having entirely too much meat. Make of that what you will.” BRILLIANT! Thanks for the report, girl! Once I finish with this damn conference in a few weeks, I’m heading uptown for a snack.

Speaking of yumminess with entirely too much meat (NEVER!) How’s about some Sergio, both clothed and barely clothed. I know you all prefer the latter. He tweeted a shot waiting to head off to Mallorca and I don’t have to tell you where the other two shots come from.

Oh lawdy! ::fans self:: Yes, please, I’ll take a few of those. Unf! Anyhow, it’s time for me to get to sleep. Gotta get up early and continue my better-safe-than-sorry preparations for the Storm-pocalypse that is heading toward the Northeast of the US. Stay away, Hurricane Sandy! (Or at least, be very tame).

    Awww, Modric’s son is adorable!!!

    I cracked up when I saw those shots of Xavi mistakenly captioned. I bet his WTF face was out in full force if anyone told him about it. Also? I want the dress Sara wore to the awards ceremony. Super pretty.

    A) Arnsenal needs of honor Norman Duncan with something! Heck free tickets, meet n greet,his own jersey ……Name a couple of seats after him. He’s almost as old as thec club!

    b) Chris Seitz’s is a helluva guy! His story needs to be out there, hopefully it will encourage other people. I like that the club was responsive…I hope the receiptent is okay…and he BETTER get his contact renewed. Whoever his wife is…she picked one of the good ones.

      Oh no! Are you and your loved ones all doing okay? They are warning us that we could lose power for a couple of days as well.

      • number1barcachick October 28, 2012 at 12:18 pm #

        • headbandsandheartbreak October 28, 2012 at 12:54 pm #

          Thanks – we’re all stocked up with food, water, batteries/flashlight/radio. We’re not in the evacuation zone so we’re just going to hunker down and ride it out.

    More babies.

    ;w; omg these bebes are sooo cute~~

    Also, can someone explain the whole shiggers and kaka relation please? LOL.
    I’ve only been following H&H since the summer (unfortunately since this blog is great!)

    • headbandsandheartbreak October 28, 2012 at 11:07 pm #

      I should really put something about this in the HB & HB Glossary since it’s often asked. Kaka creeps Shiggers out. She thinks that no one can smile that much and be that happy. She’s positive that he’s going to snap and kill us all in a berserker rage someday. She’s convinced that he’s total serial killer material. When you see that first picture in the series, you can kinda understand right? He looks kinda crazed. Also, dead eyes, like a shark. Kaka does not smize. Tyra would not approve! 🙂

    OMG, so much good stuff in this post!

    Xavi called a ‘jugador del Real Madrid’ … hahahahaha (actually I feel sorry for Alonso they put his name on Xavi). Iker and Sara looking so good, I love her dress!

    Enzo with his doggies, too cute! He always makes me smile.

    Nuri with his son in matching cars, I melted, it’s so freaking sweet!

    And Sese finally giving our ovaries a bit of rest and wearing the most hideous denim and suede shirt … Very thoughtful of you, Ramos, since so many of us were on the edge of a mental breakdown. But I love his jeans tucked in those Panama Jack’s, so sexy! I guess he doesn’t want us to fully recover. And I hope he’s doing fine, we can not lose him too!

    who goes hiking in flip flops, seriously?
    what an awesome human being that chris seitz is!

    and while marcelo’s injury is devastating, i can only imagine how glorious his instagram is going to be these next couple months!

    stay safe & dry, east coasters!

    Holy mother of ovaries all the cute bebes in these photos! Little Juan Mata!

    I must have laughed for a full 5 minutes when I first saw that photo of Xavi with the wrong caption. It’s hysterical with a hint of how dare you! mixed in.

    Mmm… I think Sergio looks adorable in his clothed photo. Much as I’ve been enjoying all the nudity and sexy smolder, I also love his efforts to dress himself also. He’s just so damn cute!

    i’m sorry, call it childish, but i couldn’t help but laugh when “xabi” there was identified as a jugador for real madrid! i can’t imagine he’d be too thrilled if he saw that!

    i love kaka, but in that first shot, he looks like the joker. *shudders*

    all the kidlets are so cute! nuri and omer’s matching cars kill me!

    chris seitz is a remarkable human being. 🙂 all class.

    and again, i know you’re going to think i’m mad, but i’ll take iker fully-clothed in that black suit and skinny tie over sergio in his skivvies any day!

    • Phédre October 28, 2012 at 6:55 pm #

      You’re not mad … maybe just a little ;-). You can have Iker, just leave Sese for me!
