Night Of The Living Selfies, Cast Off, Birthday Cake Issues, Brothers, Underpants Mania & More

5 Feb

485150_10151388844249663_1363281096_nEveryone is all about the selfies lately. Mesut has picked up Karim’s bad habits and it looks like they’re trying to out-selfie each other. At least he hasn’t gone straight up duckface on us…yet.

French master of duckface (or should I say le visage de canard?) Karim Benzema is never one to back down from a challenge and gifted us with two recent selfies.

karim 1 398155_411045995653519_1432417244_nHis acolyte, Remy Cabella, may have outdone the master with this confusing selfie.

5e11d5986d7b11e2b6fe22000a9f12db_7Oh these crazy kids. Over in Spain Caio & Yasmin shared their own selfie to which Marcelo had a tart response. I burst out laughing when I read it.

385012466e3611e2af7e22000a1f8ae5_7marcelocaioDavid Luiz gave us a shot in which he looks like a burgeoning serial killer. Must be Kaka’s influence? (said Shiggers)

a63dd1046cc311e2a73722000a1f9317_7Speaking of Brazilians, it’s also Neymar’s birthday today! He turned 21 and got a cake from his teammates.

article-2273823-175D4CD4000005DC-983_634x466You know, between this and Cristiano’s cake, I want to weep. All that cake that can’t be eaten by elite athletes. I hereby volunteer for the job of cake eater for national teams. I will happily join them on their concentracions and erm, eat their cakes. I am so selfless.

In magical, wonderful news Iker got his cast off! He can enter the next phase of his rehab. He looks so happy!

Mesut was suspended for the match on Saturday so he lit out for the homeland. He posted this shot with Cris & Sami saying “Germany/ Düsseldorf- Im happy to see my family… Good luck to my boys tonight. Im watching you from Germany…” 


Marcelo put a shot on Instagram with Edith saying “Black and white !”  Should we all start singing Ebony & Ivory?


I was looking at Luka’s Instagram (@lukam10 ) and he had a couple of sweet shots of wife Vanja and little Ivano from a few months back.

6bdec33cc77411e19e4a12313813ffc0_7db4093a0343311e2925f22000a1fb71a_7Clarice posted a shot showing most of their menagerie. Where’s big doggie Lola? I love her!

fceb763a6e5f11e2b9c722000a9e07b7_7Looks like Marta took a side trip to London. She posted this picture the other day. That’s one thing I miss about living in England – quick and cheap trips to other countries.


Alicia posted a shot of three sets of slippers saying she was having fun with her girls. Looks like a spa day, no? Now I’m imaging Azahara & Alma having tiny girl manicures with their mama.

447d9c726e3211e2bb5122000a9e2955_7Pepe reached 2 million followers and posted this adorable picture surrounded by baby bottles. It’s kinda of funny to think of him feeding little Sofia, changing diapers and the like, isn’t it?

537777_474775689255557_1348473142_nJuan Mata reached a million Twitter followers so he made a silly, cute little thank you video.

And now, we have a bunch of brother-related stuff (I know, that sounds weird but it will all make sense soon…)

Remember how I said that Calleti had made some tweets that led me to believe that Juanmi was going to play in Greece? Well I was right. Watishista Mandi, in a bid to avoid her ethics homework, tracked down the info. Juanmi is now playing for Levadiakos FC. Here he is from the front page of their website. Thanks, girl!

JuanmiPipita’s brother Frederic plays for MLS side Columbus Crew. He was awarded Best Newcomer!

BCXIY5WCEAE2j0TAnd I came across this picture of The Baby with his little brother Jonathan – too cute!

Rafa and bro JonathanAlinny Deris had a couple of pictures of Sergio & Pilar together along with ones of Pilar hanging out with his mami. I’ve seen pictures of the Pilar, Paqui and Mirian shopping together recently as well.

Wonder if those are Sergio’s red pants she borrowed? I can imagine them sharing the veritable rainbow of trousers that Sese has in his closet.

For those that are stressing about Sergio dating again, please enjoy some nerve soothing Nando via GF Sports.

Watishista Em’s daughter made this for us – Em explains: “The monument, Appeal to the Great Spirit, has been a part of my life since I was a child.  We had an image of it hanging in our cottage on Cape Cod.  Every time I see Sergio, I am caused to think ot him being referred to as El Indio de Camas, especially when he stares upward during the lineup, this is all I see……” Pretty apt, don’t you think?

sergio appeals to the great spiritWatishista Conflicted48 posted this adorable shot of Drool alum and Borussia Dortmund center back Neven Subotić with a group of school children. I squealed when I saw it. Adorbs.

Neven SHere’s a behind the scenes video of the USWNT’s Alex Morgan who will be posing as Katy Perry for ESPN magazine’s music issue. 

Alex is a total babe. Something I didn’t need to see today? Gennaro Gattuso dancing to Gangnam Style. I would have enjoyed it about 100% more if Joe Jordan joined Rino.

And what better way to end a post than David Beckham in his underpants?

404783_10151214068341571_735227441_nThe great news is that tomorrow, a new H&M commercial featuring Becks and directed by Guy Ritchie is going to be released. Is it my birthday? Because, HOORAY! As Zlatan said about Becks joining PSG “Now we’re not only good, but beautiful as well. His attitude & competitiveness will take us to another level” And if Zlatan thinks you’re hot, then you should be well pleased.

And I think that’s enough for now. I’m off to have a nice steaming bowl of pho with my girls watishistas Dollo & Notorious JOD. It’s the perfect weather for it!

    I’m watching the Real Madrid – Ajax replay right now and Benz needs a haircut. And I thought David Luiz was doing his best impression of Sideshow Bob (he’s doesn’t have to try hard) and that’s why he looks like a serial killer. Also, did Neymar go blonde with blonde beard as well or is it just that photo?

    • Mehreh February 5, 2013 at 6:29 pm #

      neymar is blonde on hair and beard and he looks ridiculous. for some reason, he is enamored of this look. silly kid.

    • headbandsandheartbreak February 5, 2013 at 7:09 pm #

      No, he totes has been blonde for awhile. I think he goes back and forth!

    • randomthoughts57 February 5, 2013 at 7:47 pm #

      Ohh, I was hoping, for his sake, I was seeing things and he didn’t actually go fully blonde.

    • CinematiqueChic February 5, 2013 at 8:58 pm #

      I was watching the replay of the Lyon match and lordy I wanted to go back in time and shave Cris’s head!

  2. GinaM February 5, 2013 at 6:23 pm #

    What’s Alicia Roig’s instagram?

  3. Rose February 5, 2013 at 7:43 pm #

    Hahahahahaha, Rino Gattuso usually terrifies, but I don’t think I can ever look at him again without laughing! He’s adorable horrendous at dancing. And Zlatan is very wise no? Waiting for this newest video with baited breath!

    And Iker, oh Iker I’m so glad for you! But I’m laughing at the fact that his cast made his hand even paler than I thought it could possibly go!

    • jellyace February 6, 2013 at 12:17 am #

      Iker does have lovely hands. I hope he gets full motion soon. He can always have a fallback career as a hand model, like George Castanza, maybe?

  4. Backwards February 5, 2013 at 8:36 pm #

    Oh David, that photo will give me nightmares.

    • headbandsandheartbreak February 5, 2013 at 11:15 pm #

      For a second I thought you meant David Beckham in his underpants would give you nightmares and I was like “Huh?!” Then I remembered the David Luiz serial killer shot! 🙂 Agreed!

      • jellyace February 6, 2013 at 12:19 am #

        And we are worrying about Kaka? I’d keep one eye open around David Luiz. (And both eyes open and on zoom mode for David Beckham in any pose! thank you for that piccie!)

      • Backwards February 6, 2013 at 2:04 am #

        Yeah the Beckham pic scared me in a completely different way!

  5. Natalie February 5, 2013 at 9:03 pm #

    ok, number of things,
    1) Thank u Mr Beckham, always appreciated
    2) Raphael with his brother, very cute,
    3) not a fan of Nandos haircut, sorry, i like his long hair,
    4) YAY IKER, get better soon,
    5) Pets and baby bottles with Pepe are cute,
    6) is pilar afraid of germs? she put on single use gloves when pumping gas in her car?? i know it is not the cleanest of places but still, odd in my world (i am sure they have full serve gas station in spain)

    • headbandsandheartbreak February 5, 2013 at 11:18 pm #

      Oh that’s so weird! I didn’t even notice the plastic glove until you mentioned it! I was too caught up in the red pants. Maybe it’s common for people to use those when they pump gas in Spain? ::shrugs:: I have no idea. That’s some serious germ phobia if she’s just carrying around some plastic gloves for any time she comes in contact with stuff other people have touched. If that’s the case how does she date Sergio? ::rimshot:: Sorry! couldn’t resist. 😉

      • Natalie February 6, 2013 at 5:40 pm #

        LoL!! At least carry small hand sanitizer or something.

        • jellyace February 6, 2013 at 10:43 pm #

          No Glove, No Love!

      • drea February 7, 2013 at 9:44 am #

        Hahahahahaha… as much as I love Sergio, I would probably have him fumigated and then disinfected first.

      • Dr. Heidi February 7, 2013 at 2:29 pm #

        If that’s what it takes to get some Ramos love, I’ll cover myself in a tarp!

        • Dr. Heidi February 7, 2013 at 2:30 pm #

          the pictures with Pilar still make me weep though….

    • Mehreh February 6, 2013 at 10:09 am #

      it kind of ruins my day when i get gas on my hand but i’d think a girlfriend of sergio would be able to spring for full service… unless she’s going for a common touch like nago does when she takes the kids on the bus?

  6. Ira February 5, 2013 at 11:11 pm #

    Silly question but anyone know what Marcelo’s brother-in-law, Caio does for a living?

  7. Lizzie February 6, 2013 at 12:29 am #

    A) i’m so not loving Nando hair b) Luiz photo eek! And C)I just finished watching a nearly 11 minute video of ALL the photos that Neymar had posted on instagram (via kickTV) ….I believe the only cake eaten today was my bros b-day and my bud Kenneth B-day yep there birthday was today also

  8. Mehreh February 6, 2013 at 12:01 pm #

    okay i finally have time to take in all the goodies of this post!
    1.) mesut seems like he’s struggling in his hair journey. i hope he’s not trying to do what sergio’s doing. his trash talk to karim on twitter today was so cute. i’m VERY much looking forward to today’s games.
    2.) luiz looks so much like sideshow bob, i can’t handle it. stop it, sweetie.
    3.) happy iker is so sweet. i’m so excited he’s gotten his cast off. poor bebe is probably dying of boredom.
    4.) luka’s son is so freaking cute! what a little angel in his stones shirt. love.
    5.) i love the idea of pepe taking care of his daughter.
    6.) mata’s video made me giggle. he’s too darn cute.
    7.) i’d be lying if i said i wasn’t worried about where nando goes next with his hair. wait and see…
