Christmas Keeps Coming And Other Bits & Bobs

30 Dec

The Christmas videos keep coming and additional pictures. Guess they wanted to prolong the holiday season? Oh well, I’ll take it no matter how late

Lots of other bits and bobs to get to. Here’s some footage of Mou at the Globe Soccer Awards ceremony and wife Tami along with Jose Jr. joined him.

Watishista Matea emailed us the great news that Luka Modric and his wife Vanja Bosnic are about to become parents for the second time! According to the Croatian newspapers, Vanja is 5 1/2 months pregnant and is due to give birth to a baby boy at the end of March. Mazel tov! Here’s a picture from Luka’s presentation with his little family.

Onward to checking out some other players…

Albiol spent his Christmas hanging with his brothers and they had what looks like an absolutely mouthwatering paella! Can’t believe Brian is wearing a Psy t-shirt!

Sami changed his cover photo on his Facebook and it’s so PHWOAR! that I had to share it. How amazing does he look? DAMN.

375245_578843908808007_662875140_nMygypsyspirit tweeted me today to point out this Kaka shirt and she wondered how Shiggers would feel about it. We came to the conclusion that she would run screaming.

the-brazilian.american-apparel-unisex-fitted-tee.white.w380h440z1While I was over there looking at t-shirt (yes, I’m evil, I thought I might possibly buy it for Shigs), I came across this great Callejon shirt in the same Skreened shop.

hala-calleti.american-apparel-unisex-fitted-tee.white.w380h440z1I totally need this shirt, like, yesterday! You can find both shirts (and many others) in the Hala Tees shirt on Skreened.

My wee French boo, Remy Cabella posed with friends, family, an artfully tied scarf and his challenging haircut. I think  you have some cappuccino foam on your upper lip, Meow.

Sergio has posted some pictures lately (some from awhile ago – I’m behind on things!) But better late than never, eh?

A_SrH_MCQAEOZsDA_SsHBICUAEMyM8Sese familyWow! Daniela is getting bigger, isn’t she? She’s looking really grown up now. Sergio was celebrating his parents’ birthdays in this shot.

NadeenAlk sent me a link to this tumblr, which has some older Sergio shots. They posted a couple of pictures from his book (via

Unfortunately for Doce, his daddy is fast and used to chasing down things. These shots are all from December 2012  (via OneIkerCasillas).

Haven’t seen that in awhile. Well, it’s time for me to finish this post (which took me HOURS – granted, I stopped for a dinner break but argh!) I’ve got some more pictures from Real-Valencia and more training shots from today in the next two posts.

    A boy and his dog… 🙂

    Maybe Madrid is doing more of a “week between Xmas and New Year” thing this year? Although I was grouchy about waiting, I like that we’re getting stuff over the break. It’s great to see them smiley and laughing and happy together. But where are bloopers from Sergio, Iker, Mou and Flo’s video? HMMMM Madrid? You know that’s gotta be the good stuff. (Actually, it wouldn’t surprise me a bit if that was a serious business shoot and no blooper moments happened).

    Are Albiol’s brothers twins? Poor Chori, I have clearly neglected to properly stalk him. I’m sure he’d be devastated if he knew I hadn’t devoted the same time and energy to his personal information as I have his teammates 😛

    DYING of Sergio’s baby photos. I love how both he and Nando basically look the same. But lordy was Sergio exceptionally cute. I might* be biased, but I think his little face is the most precious thing. I also love how there are early signs of the unique fashion sense we’ve all come to love.

      no, his brothers aren’t twins, not that i know of. i do love that he and his other brother were allowed to name their baby brother, so they came up with the decidedly un-spanish name of “brian”. he was named after a footballer, if memory serves me right. 🙂

      love the photos of iker and doce. iker actually looks decently dressed in those shots! (and i’m going to excuse the murse on the grounds that it hopefully contains baggies to clean up after doce and therefore was a necessary addition to his wardrobe. 😉 )

      all those sernando shots are fantastic! it’s amazing how similar they were in so many of them!

    • headbandsandheartbreak December 30, 2012 at 11:18 pm #

      Nope, Albiol’s brothers are actually pretty far apart in age. Miguel is the oldest (he’s 31), El Chori is in the middle at 27 and Brian was born in 1994, which would make him just 18.

      BTW, Miguel is a midfielder for Real Murcia in the Segunda Division.

    Cristiano’s faaaaace in those bloopers. *thud* I’m dead.

    Love the “keep calm and callejon” shirt! That’s terrific.

    Iker and his dog = best thing ever. And I totally think my older brother has a plaid shirt just like that (most likely cheaper), which is kind of amusing to me.

    Torres booty shot changed my life

    • headbandsandheartbreak December 31, 2012 at 12:21 am #

      Oh well, we’re big fans of that. We always end each year with a focus on Nando’s butt so look for some arse tomorrow night! 🙂

    Awesome post!

    Haha, Iker! Dog 101: put the leash on the dog BEFORE opening the front door.
