Cheery Uppy Bits & Bobs

24 Jan

BBZzqgTCQAAxXdJOn such a drama filled day, we need some cheering up, don’t you think? Marcelo kindly posted this shot with the caption “So much swag!!! #enzoboy”  These two are the best. I’ve missed regular Enzo pictures. Onward for some assorted giggles…

Close runner up in the adorable stakes is Stu Holden. When I read these two tweets, I could totally picture the scenario. Oh Stu!

Stu 1Stu 2

How I love that boy! My adored Ox is fashionably posing in Esquire looking kinda (but not really) grown up.

BBY2P-yCUAEAjoXSweetie, does your mama know you’re drinking coffee and out past dark eating chips? Bless!

Prepare to be terrified. @IsraQM linked to this horrifying visual which she found on realdramadrid. It was created by a tumblr appropriately called Stars Without Their Eyebrows. There are so many ways that I have never wanted to see Xavi, but I had no clue this was one of them. It is. It SO is.

BBZMUL7CIAAckC0IsraQM and I got hysterical looking through the blog and imagining other players browless: Pique, Hamit Altintop, Nando bitchfacing browless…

And if there can be too little hair, there can also be too much. @CalvinoCupini (via@Goonerette_7) shared this shot of a young Mikel Arteta looking less suave than he does today.

ArtetaDear god! But hey, at least he has eyebrows (vaguely manicured, no less) and a headband which is more than I can say for some players. Hmph! (He looks alot like a young Ronaldo there, doesn’t he?)

DidierNOTDrogba on Twitter shared this pretty awesome clip of Mata totally owning Chori during a La Roja training. I mean, not cool to see one of our defenders being owned, but sweet skills from tiny Juanin!


Speaking of Chelsea, here’s OldHair!Nando in the most recent installment of Dream the Blues.

Hey Valdez, this is what Xabi thinks of your penis size!

Mazel tov to Fernando Llorente and Serie A fans – he’s heading to Juventus on July 1 after spending an unhappy year mostly warming the bench for Athletic.

Pique posted a picture of baby Milan’s feetsies today in customized booties. I’m praying like hell that those are seriously about 50 sizes too big for his wee bebe feet because otherwise, POOR SHAKIRA! You knew it was going to be tough as she’s 4’11” and Pique is 6’4″ and has a head the size of a pumpkin, but OUCH.

BBVMdWACAAADK2DAnd finally (for now) here’s a little Cristiano Nike Mercurial action. Zoooooooooom!

      Also those no eye brown pics are very very creepy and funny

    hahhahahaa The xabi Gif is killing me!

    I also doubt the size of baby Piquera’s shoe.

      His feet CANNOT be that big yet – they just can’t!

        I doubt that Milan got custom made baby shoes from Nike, because newborn babies don’t wear any shoes if they don’t look like socks. So they just sent the parents a pair of their smallest kids size and they squeezed him into it for some Nike promotion 😛

        Well, he is Pique’s son. Know what they say about big feet?
        Big shoes.

        Yeah, but these are probably not his size yet. Give him a few months.

    Arrteta does look like a young Ronaldo!

  4. Pammie January 24, 2013 at 5:23 pm #

    Now I wanna see a pic of young Arteta without the hairband! And maybe one with him and Xabi with the mushroom hair next to him 😛

    The Xabi gif is the best thing that came out of this mess of a match.

    😦 no Llorente fix when he’s with La Roja & now he’ll be gone from La Liga too. Double 😦 …sigh…I wish the very BIG man (I ain’t just talking about height, ehem) all the luck in the world!

    I seriously want to smack the tar out of the Pique’s for putting those hideously over sized shoes on those wee bebe feets. It’s just not right. We should be able to see the toes at all times.
    And yes, Nelson, Xabi is right. You need to shut your trap. I don’t know that I have ever seen such abject dissatisfaction on Xabi’s face.

    • em January 24, 2013 at 8:02 pm #

      Or, is he saying, ‘I’m crushing your head!’

  7. CinematiqueChic January 24, 2013 at 9:26 pm #

    So this was like Enzo YAAAAAY immediately followed by HOLY HELL XAVI WITHOUT EYEBROWS NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Please, never do that to us again.

    • headbandsandheartbreak January 24, 2013 at 10:42 pm #

      There really wasn’t any good place to put eyebrowless Xavi, you know? Thought cuteness before might soften the blow. Think he’s bad? Simon Cowell is WORSE!

      • CinematiqueChic January 25, 2013 at 7:40 am #

        I had I stress dream about Barcelona last night, which I think was 90% 3 clasicos coming up and 10% Eyebrowless Xavi Coming For Me. And Simon Cowell’s is a thing I never ever want to see!! Sometimes, I really wonder about the internet… 🙂

    Honestly, if Marcelo, Clarice, and Caio just posted pictures of their lovely families all day, I think my days would go by quicker…

    Oh man, I didn’t think anything could be worse than Xavi complaining about grass!

    You ladies will appreciate this – my friend saw Pep and his wife getting lunch today on the upper west side. He said he looked shorter than he imagined him to be. Anyone else seen him??

    • headbandsandheartbreak January 24, 2013 at 10:44 pm #

      I haven’t seen him, but since I live in Brooklyn and work downtown, I don’t get uptown all that much. That’s pretty cool though!

  9. Phédre January 25, 2013 at 5:25 am #

    OMG, that gif of Xabi is the best. You would expect the other guy to get on his knees and bow to him and say: ‘Sorry Xabi, I won’t do it again, promise!’
