UPDATED: Preparing For Deportivo/Grand Opening

20 Feb

Entrenamiento (8)The boys are fully back to work today, preparing for Saturday’s match vs. Deportivo. They were joined by reserve player Burgui  Benz stayed inside (the better to take selfies in the gym, no doubt) and Iker worked on his recovery.  Animo capi!



The new Adidas store is having its grand opening tomorrow at the Bernabeu. Iker, Xabi Alonso, Arbeloa, Calleti, Sergio Rodriguez, Felipe Reyes and Carlos Suarez will be attending the unveiling along with others. The mothership had some sneak peeks at the store along with mannequins posed in classic RM photog formations. Head on down and get your Iker striped socks!


UPDATED: Thanks to watishista VAMOSteph who clued me to the adorable Adidas commercial that goes along with the store opening.

    I love how Xabi didn’t get the blue shirt memo for training today… Or maybe he just thought that shade of blue would clash with his ginger beard…

    The ad is adorable! Tumblr is already gif-ing the heck out of it. Also adorable? Pepe and Adan hugging it out at the top of the post. I’ve felt kind of bad for Adan lately- he cannot be in a fun situation, professionally speaking- but, yay, hugs!

    That is the best ad I’ve ever seen. Morata is in it and Iker looks very sexy while disapproving. I feel like Adidas didn’t even need to script it. You could just let them loose in the store and they’d be naturally adorable and Iker would be like “I’m surrounded by foolish yet endearing man-children.”

    OMG this is commercial so adorable. I really want Xabi’s jacket [and I wouldn’t mind if Xabi came along with it].

    Oh the commercial is just great! How sweet (and funny) doesn’t Iker look with those carpenter protection glasses? (if that’s the right way to put it, English isn’t my first language…) I wonder when they filmed btw, it appears as if they covered up Iker’s hand with a shirt in some of the scenes, which indicates that he was still in the cast or at least had som protection on the hand. Makes me hope the filming took place at least some weeks ago, because I’m sooooo hoping for him to recover earlier than those previously estimated 8-12 weeks, and his hand still being covered up and protected doesn’t really speek in favour of that 😦

      You’re right. His left hand is covered by a shirt draped over it. But on 0:38 he touches his cheek with his left hand — unless that is a mirror image taken using his right hand?

        You’re right too! When watching it a second time now, I actually had to freeze the picture at 0:38 to get a closer look though, and it almost seems as if they have done some airbrushing on his hand, it looks strangely blurry… Well, I think I’m just gonna keep believing that this was shot a couple of weeks ago and that Iker will be back between the sticks any time now!

        (Also, I really believe that the “video detective” in me has to stop here… I better start concentrating on today’s work instead of focusing on freezing a YouTube-video in exactly the right second… )

          Agree…need to focus on the income earning work.

          We need Detective Mais! But it seems she is busy with schoolwork, too.

    As much as I love all the boys, I think the best thing about that commercial is Morata. I haven’t seen him in any (I don’t think) others.

    This has made my night. This team will be the death of me. At least I’ll die happy, of cuteness.
