Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About HB & HB But Were Afraid To Ask

30 Nov

Image-Question-markSo, as our little community grows, people seem to have some questions that are asked over and over (number one is “What’s Shiggers’ problem with Kaka?!“).  So I guess it’s time we did an FAQ to supplement our HB & HB Glossary (which if you haven’t already read it, you should). So what do you want to know that’s not in the Glossary? For instance, “Does that girl Jenny who comments have an ear fetish?”, “How did you start the blog?”, “Are your real names Lozil & Maisougio?“, “Why don’t you repeat Drools?“, etc. etc. Here’s your big chance! Send in your questions (via comments below or to our email) and we’ll throw something together and post it when it’s done. We’ll do our best to answer everything, but obviously, that is not always possible. For example, “Why is Xabi Alonso so perfect?” is a question for the ages and really doesn’t have an answer. I’m sure you understand.

– Lozil

    Of course there’s an answer to “Why is Xabi Alonso so perfect?”

    He’s Xabi Alonso.

    See? Question answered.

      I applaud this use of logic.

    • headbandsandheartbreak November 30, 2012 at 1:20 pm #

      I guess I’m going to have to consult you on all the tough questions because the best answer I came up with is “Just because he is” 🙂

      • shiggers November 30, 2012 at 2:43 pm #

        Much of a muchness.

      • mygypsyspirit November 30, 2012 at 4:07 pm #

        Best answer I came up with is “Because he’s Basque”

    If you had to choose one team (apart from Real Madrid)- what team this would be? (And no, national teams don’t count as I know your preferences here :D)

    I thought I was the only one who though Mou has man boobs!

    • headbandsandheartbreak November 30, 2012 at 2:14 pm #

      Oh no. We’ve been chronicling the adventures of Laverne & Shirley (aka Mou’s Moubs) for quite awhile! 🙂

      • Miss_F November 30, 2012 at 2:22 pm #

        “Laverne & Shirley”

        You crack me up! 🙂

    I’m going to push to boundaries and be totally greedy, but I have a few questions…1) so girls, who REALLY makes you moist in all the right places? 2) where do you both operate out of (city wise), 3) are those your real names and 4) do all these wonderful,drool worthy, license to perv photos, news stories and general yumminess get you any special privileges with the boys of Real? They MUST know of H & H, no? ( I suddenly shudder at some of my posts if they do, in fact, read this stuff)

  6. MissLadya November 30, 2012 at 2:56 pm #

    1. Is it hard being football (or at least Real Madrid) fans in the states? Mind you, I know it’s not like you’re persecuted and hanged for liking football, but what’s the attitude of those around you regarding your interest in the sport? Are people curious, or dismissive?
    2. Apparently football (“soccer”) is growing in popularity in the US; do you notice that shift, or is it still just a very small niche?
    3. Your manifesto explained the origin of this blog, but when did you guys get into football? Do you support a national team, or only Real? What made you fall in love with Real? 🙂

    • em December 3, 2012 at 6:05 am #

      It definitely isn’t hard to be a footy fan in the US. The proliferation of the internet makes it easy to follow the international teams. We have several soccer specific networks available on cable, and if you subscribe to Latin packages, as well, you can watch matches all day. The pundits on TV and radio say it’s actually easier to watch football here than in the rest of the world now.
      People here are definitely coming around about soccer. I am a soccer mom and have conversations on the sidelines with the other ladies and they really enjoy discussing the cute international boys.
      One other important point is that our MLS is now 6th in the world in total ‘gate’ attendance and there are several very active supporters groups that model themselves after the European ‘penas’. Timbers Army, Emerald City, Angel City Brigade, to name a very few. The Portland/Seattle rivalry is very hot and they both pack up their stadia. Look them up and you will see how active the fans are. See also: Timber Joey. The MLS will be adding a new team soon, and the NY Cosmos are being rebuilt to join the NASL.
      Our MNT played in my city recently, and we sold out the stadium, I was in the section with the American Outlaws supporters group and it was a blast. The pregame lunch and the march to the stadium, the chanting and the songs, all very authentic. Made me proud. Footy has a ways to go if it wants to win the hearts of the really old guard, but it’s doing great in the USA. It helped that the Beckham experiment went so well, too.

    I have a few questions (you don´t need to answer every of them :D)
    1. How old are you guys?
    2. When/How did you found out, that you have an obsession for footballer bromances?
    3. Which one is your favorite bromance couple?
    4. Can I contact you besides this blog and your email?
    Sorry for any mistakes, I´m from Germany (: I would appreciate if you would answer at least one of my questions ^-^

  8. ramoslove November 30, 2012 at 3:40 pm #

    Well at first, I do really want to know why shiggers is so scared of kaka and second I’d love to know: do any of your friends and family know about this place of perviness?

  9. cindy yin (@meridiansour) November 30, 2012 at 4:09 pm #

    Well first I want to ask Lozil why Guinness is her drink of choice, and while we’re on this topic, what Shiggers and Maisougio prefer when they’re watching?

    Also wanted to ask what your National teams are? I mean I know you guys support Spain quite a bit, but do you also support your own team (assuming you girls aren’t all Spanish).

    • Jenny December 1, 2012 at 12:22 am #

      I drink Guinness.

      Guinness is the finest thing on earth…after Glenlivet. It’s like Xabi. It just exists in its perfection.

      • cindy yin (@meridiansour) December 1, 2012 at 2:06 am #

        Oh Jenny. Guinness and Scotch Whisky? We definitely do not have the same taste in drinks. But on that note, I feel like Xabi would definitely be a scotch guy, served neat. Or maybe a clean martini.

        • Jenny December 2, 2012 at 1:31 pm #

          I am a whiskey drinker, yes. Glenlivet or Glenfidditch. 12-15 years. Neat. NEVER on ice. Whiskey on ice is an abomination.

          As it happens, Guinness should never be refrigerated.

          Gin on the other hand should be kept in the freezer!

          • headbandsandheartbreak December 2, 2012 at 1:35 pm #

            Vodka should always be kept in the freezer. I’m not a whiskey fan, sadly. I try but I just don’t love it. I did have a shot of Jameson’s after the victory last night though.

            • MissLadya December 2, 2012 at 1:38 pm #

              … Following all this knowledgeable liquor talk leaves me feeling pretty damn unsophisticated. The only alcoholic beverage I drink is beer. Wouldn’t know the first thing about how to store and consume anything else 😦

  10. mygypsyspirit November 30, 2012 at 4:10 pm #

    I’m thinking! I’m thinking!
    I feel like I know too much… Including why Shigs is afraid of Kaka… GRRRRRR

    • headbandsandheartbreak November 30, 2012 at 5:58 pm #

      You do know a fair amount, don’t you? Hmmmm, that’s dangerous! 🙂

    • Allison November 30, 2012 at 9:05 pm #

      Don’t worry, Shigs, Kaka is going to move to LA.

      • headbandsandheartbreak November 30, 2012 at 9:28 pm #

        She’s not going to be comfortable if he’s on the same continent. She’ll never sleep again.

        • mygypsyspirit December 1, 2012 at 9:23 am #

          It’s okay. I’m going to steal him anyway…

  11. number1barcachick November 30, 2012 at 4:55 pm #

    1) if you could marry anyone out off all of footydom besides who you already claim as your ” future husbands” who would they be and 2) main what was your first thought when sergio responded to your tweet

  12. HermosaChica November 30, 2012 at 9:09 pm #

    If you had to, HAD TO, pick a piece of clothing from either Iker’s or Sergio’s wardrobe to wear for an entire sober day, whose would it be and which item would you choose? You can’t choose underwear or footie kits!

    Sorry that this is like one of those “how would you like to die” questions, but sometimes you’re gonna have to answer some extremely tough questions in life. 😉

    • headbandsandheartbreak November 30, 2012 at 9:27 pm #

      Man, that’s EVIL. I love how you qualified it as a “sober day” – that makes it even harder.

    • maisoun November 30, 2012 at 9:30 pm #

      Damn it!! I had Sergio’s underwear chosen before I finished reading your comment! 😛

      Btw I’m loving everyone’s questions, can’t wait to answer them!!

    • HermosaChica November 30, 2012 at 9:49 pm #

      Hahah, you think that’s evil? I must have forgotten to mention that you can’t choose headbands either.. 😀 This should be interesting. Please show examples of your choices!

      • headbandsandheartbreak November 30, 2012 at 9:50 pm #

        AIIIIIIEEEEEEE! TORTURE! I’m guessing accessories like man bags are out, right?

        • sweethearthalo December 1, 2012 at 5:18 am #

          Can we take like a superman outfit or something? Like this super tight outfit? Like the one Arbeloa was posing with during Pre-Season?

          • HermosaChica December 1, 2012 at 7:12 pm #

            Haha, nope no man bag-like accessories. Only items that can be worn, preferably ones we know exist in their closets (which is why photos are encouraged). No need to photoshop them onto yourself, although that would be quite funny 😀

    • panama December 1, 2012 at 2:59 am #

      Awesome question!

  13. Andrea November 30, 2012 at 9:13 pm #

    Man, I’ve missed this place!

    I have a question – is there a Watishista WC 2014 viewing party planned? Yes, I know I’m getting ahead of myself, but I’m an event planner by trade 🙂

    • headbandsandheartbreak November 30, 2012 at 9:28 pm #

      If we’re not *at* the 2014 WC (which is the dream), then sure, I’ll happily host one here in NYC.

      Welcome back!

      • CinematiqueChic December 1, 2012 at 5:14 am #

        I’m hearing from a lot of people that they’re going to try to go to the WC (I know I already have plane ticket fare tucked away in a DO NOT TOUCH UNTIL WORLD CUP savings account). So what I’m saying is, Watishista WC meet up in Brazil?

  14. panama December 1, 2012 at 3:00 am #

    Since I have followed this blog so religiously for so long I have no really pressing questions… But I’d like to know if you’ve ever met in person or if your amazingly productive freindship is exclusively internet-based!
    There are some great questions on here already, looking forward to your answers. The Sergio/Iker-clothing one is my favourite 😉

  15. kfunk22 December 1, 2012 at 7:49 am #

    bit of a different question, since i feel like i’m all up to speed on matters HB&HB.

    if either of you could choose only one thing to change about the game, what would it be? would you ditch blatter, institute more equitable financial fair play, shrink the champion’s league, implement goal line technology? you know, that sort of thing.

    what’s on top of your wish list, ladies?

  16. andi no.9 December 1, 2012 at 1:07 pm #

    do your day jobs influence/are influenced by headbands and heartbreak?
    and who is your favourite a) bromance couple and b) real life couple?

  17. kiki09 December 1, 2012 at 5:47 pm #

    why is modric called null null round these parts?

  18. Kelsey December 1, 2012 at 8:31 pm #

    Do you prefer Sergio with long hair or short hair? And do you like him clean shaven or with scruff?

  19. black widow December 1, 2012 at 9:10 pm #

    i don’t have a question, i have a request, please and thanks: would you consider pre-programming a post to automatically go up after certain critical matches take place? (e.g. derbies, CL games, clasicos, etc.) not all the time after every match, but just when there’s something to talk about? none of my friends really like football (and the rare few who do only watch the premiership), so it’s a bit lonely having lots you want to say but not having anywhere to say it, online or offline. just a thought … thanks! 🙂

  20. Elisha Buckley (@elishasmells) December 2, 2012 at 6:22 am #

    Ahhh, I’ve barely been on here recently 😦
    But my question is: why are you ladies so damn awesome?

    • sweethearthalo December 2, 2012 at 7:44 am #

      OMG ELISHA I wanted to ask the same question but then I thought it’s one of those questions where the only answer possible is “Because they are”

      • jellyace December 3, 2012 at 4:43 am #

        I think you’re right, sweethearthalo, as “Because they’re Basque” doesn’t work! hahahaha! They are definitely awesome and amazing girls!
