Iker saves! World -1  Mayans – 0

Congratulations! We survived the end of the world! And good timing too, as I was finally able to get out of bed and drag myself into work. This is going to be a quick and dirty post because I’m about to head up with old friends of mine from London and Copenhagen who are in town for some pre-holiday cheer.

The exciting training news was that Pipita and The Baby were back training! Granted, they’ve still got a way to go in their recovery but I’m so happy to see them. Also? Calleti got a haircut.

Goalkeepers: Casillas, Adán and Jesús.
Defenders: Ramos, Pepe, Carvalho, Arbeloa and Nacho.
Midfielders: Xabi Alonso, Khedira, Özil, Essien, Modric, Callejón, Di María and Kaká.
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema and Morata.

Here’s a video of yesterday’s Samsung reception. I’m still giggling at the idea of them all making dirty videos for each other.
crosergzilSese posted a little shot on Twitter today with Mesut and Cris. Crozsergzil? I give up!

And all I’ve got to say to Deportivo Altura is “LEAVE SERGIO RAMOS ALONE!” ::ugly mascara running cry:: Not really, but, you know.

Sergio also modeled for Nike Air Max – looking good, boo (even though that’s more of your ankles that I ever wanted or needed to see)! (Pics via GFSports)

tumblr_mfd30gkDnN1qftb6ko1_500SergioRamos_Shot_2SergioRamos_Shot_3@Twisted_Blood posted this shot on Twitter and I burst out laughing, so I think that’s a good way to end a post non-starting Mayan Apocalypse Friday. I give you Snoop Dogg and Petr Cech.

    Well, imitation is sincerest form of flattery but i do not think their english is much better than sergios. and also, why did they do their video in the bathroom???

    I am not amused, Deportivo Altura, I am not amused. Sergio speaking English actually makes me want to weep from happiness and I’m deeply concerned that after all this public mockery it will never happen again. Sidenote: he is rocking those Nike ads.

    SO happy to see Pipita back! Varane too, but I feel like Higuain has been out forever.

    That video message is hysterical, he just needs conversation practise. Happy to help, it would be such a sacrifice on my part. “Please take your top off……”

    i know it’s meant to be a joke, but that video actually makes me furious. even if it weren’t sergio or a real madrid player, i think it’s incredibly cruel, insensitive and ignorant to mock someone who is brave enough not only to try something new and entirely out of their comfort zone, but who was doing it for a philanthropic/charitable reason, and with the whole world watching. shame on altura. it made me so sad when i saw that the original video was taken down because people were making fun of him (i had thought it was a copyright issue), and i thought his tweet about it afterwards (where he said it didn’t matter the language if it put a smile on a kid’s face) was very, very sweet and dignified. i hope it doesn’t deter sergio from trying english again sometime. i, for one, would love to hear it!

    SO glad to see pipa and varane back on the pitch! all i want for christmas is an entirely healthy team who are all pulling in the same direction!

    1. Boooo … a 3-2 loss 😦
    2.. Wait, making dirty videos what?? What’s the story behind that and PLEASE tell me dirty videos have been confirmed to have been made in the past!
    3. Oh, Sergio … I have to confess I had a hard time keeping a straight face through the greeting, but bless him he did his best AND it’s for a good cause. By the way, am I the only one now more intrigued than ever on how he and Özil interact with one another?? Özil’s English is probably worse than Ramos’, so how the two of them get by without tons of misunderstandings is mind-boggling … Oh, hang on. I got it! They speak Serzil, of course. Silly me! 😀

    Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time he’s been made fun of when he speaks English. Its a shame, how are people supposed to learn if you humiliate them?

    That said, even CR7, with his very very good English, sounds bad when he’s reading from a teleprompter.

    Those Deportiva idiots speak English much worse then Ramos.

      They totally do. It’s shame that people were mocking him. I thought it was sweet that he made the effort.
