Training, More Tennis, Men’s Health Finds 2 New Cover Boys & More

10 May

Sorry about the earlier double post. That’s what happens when you have two people in different cities working on the same blog. I had an open post that I hadn’t saved so Maisougio couldn’t see mine and I didn’t see her’s until after I hit ‘publish.’ So you got the happy news twice! This is going to be another quickie as a work project just rolled in.

Yep, no one is speaking to him.

Yep, * everyone* is on bad terms with Mou.  I can tell from the smiles.

What do you want to bet the press will twist it to say they’re laughing *at* him? ::rolls eyes:: Both Marca and AS are continuing to stir the shit today. I’m just going to ignore it and maybe all this drama will eventually go away. I definitely don’t want to discuss it anymore.

The last training before Espanyol went on today with Casemiro & Llorente joining in. Sami & Cris exercised inside while Mesut & Marcelo worked on their recovery.

Here’s some more pictures from the tennis. The ones with Sergio’s red sweater are obvs from yesterday. (Watishista Ana was right, those sleeves are crocheted! Oy!) Today, Cris, Irina and Karanka were there. I can tell from the smiles and greetings how badly Cris is getting along with the coaching staff. ::rolls eyes again:: (If you don’t know what I’m talking about Cuatro is claiming that Cris angrily screamed “Fuck you” at all the coaches after he scored the other day. Sigh.) All tennis shots via GF Sports

OMG. Those sleeves are dire.

OMG. Those sleeves are dire.

Sese also posted this shot with Nadal from the dressing room. Here’s some video of him from yesterday.

tumblr_mmlhelukJq1qltyj3o1_500God bless Men’s Health! They certainly seem committed to giving us some seriously hot men on their cover. The month of May brings Drool Amnesty King Victor Valdes to Men’s Health Espana and Olivier Giroud to the French edition.


menshealthgrioudcover6a00d83451d8ee69e201901b5dd944970b-500wiBIJfv1QCUAAtEbH1You can see more pictures and hear about Victor’s interview at Con La Roja. For more on the luscious Mr. Giroud, check out Sport Witness.

Marcelo posted a nice smiley shot on Instagram and Clarice gave us some new Enzo – hooray!

I can’t get over how much she looks like her papi!041780d6b83711e2a54022000ae911f0_7Here’s a great shot of Adan totally fangirling with Albiol’s jersey from Wednesday’s match.
BJxucugCEAAQ_UuIker said on Instagram that Adan is now on Twitter. You can follow him here.  Adan put his Twitter to good use by posting a picture of his doggie today. That is a face filled with character, for sure.

AdansdoggieCristiano posted his sister Katia Aveiro’s new video today. It’s a collaboration with Wildboyz. What do you think?

I’ve been missing El Pirata so I checked in with his Instagram. His buddy Miguel had posted a couple of shots with him on his own feed that are worth sharing.

5887a1acb8bc11e2803b22000aaa07e6_7 eef39984882411e2bbd822000a9f15da_7And El Pirata was interviewed for Rolling Stone about the best gig he ever went to! It cracks me up because the picture they chose of him makes him look like a existentialist cat burglar. Oy.
dcd61a44b80b11e29e3522000a1fbc06_7Today I  got a call from the Yankees about the upcoming footy matches there this summer. They still don’t have a date for the unbundling of Spain vs. Ireland but they will call me as soon as they get one. I’ve heard that before. I also asked about potential International Champions Cup matches being there and they said probably not due to scheduling, so the NY match will be in another stadium. Depending on who it is I can imagine maybe CitiField or Red Bulls Arena. It all remains to be seen. ICC has delayed their announcement of the other 4 teams and dates/locations for the matches. So stay tuned.

So I had myself a little adventure: Even though I was snuffly miserable with allergies yesterday, I was offered a ticket to the NY premiere & after party for Star Trek Into Darkness and I jumped at the chance, as one does. (I mean can you really imagine saying “Nah, I don’t want to go to a premiere and meet some movie stars, thanks anyhow! I’ll stay home and watch Elementary instead.”) I just have to say this: GO SEE IT! The movie is awesome! If you can see it in 3D at the IMAX, I highly recommend it. It was super cool and the whole cast is great. But today I’m back to work & allergies with a hangover to boot. So much for the glamorous life! (It was great while it lasted).

And now it’s time to get more work done. Sending good vibes out to the RM basketball team who are playing Barca in the final four of the Euro Cup. As I’m typing it’s t the end of the third quarter and the score is Barca 51 – Real Madrid 48. C’MON BLANCOS!

    i was just starting to think that cris was dressing a little too tame to be cris, and then, i saw his neon pink undies. that man will be the death of me.

    thank you! sergio’s cardigan is vile. must go. i’d take the green jeans with a matching jacket in a jaunty variation on the canadian tuxedo before this cardigan.

    god, falcao’s hair is making me super jealous. i wonder what he uses…

    • Ana May 10, 2013 at 7:53 pm #

      Aw, thank you for the shout out for my eagle-eyedness in spotting the crochet work. I’m all proud at being called a Watishista! Don’t like the waistcoat on Cris tho, its way too eighties.

    • jellyace May 11, 2013 at 9:24 am #

      Thank you for pointing out Crissy’s highlighter underwear!

      Looks like Sergio is still fascinated by Frankencoats and Frankensweaters. ewww…

  2. Katie Ann May 10, 2013 at 6:11 pm #

    Aww, the guys look like kids playing in the sprinklers in some of those training pics. Also, Adan’s looking rather bootylicious, isn’t he? Check him in the pic of the group running by the sprinklers. I’m saying.

    Also, omg, rocking sheep. Need to get one for my brother’s kids immediately. That’s adorable.

  3. la-la May 10, 2013 at 7:06 pm #

    I quite like sergio’s cardi; red, navy & white is my fav colour mix
    Cris always dresses like an off duty waiter
    Irina rocks the vest/wayfairer look. No Dolly Parton wag look going on there (brit wags PLEASE take note)
    I think Falcao has a brazilian blow dry going on. Still lush tho
    Karanka = paul brandanovic

    • CinematiqueChic May 11, 2013 at 7:25 am #

      Finally someone else agrees that the cardigan is nice!

      • Dr. Heidi May 11, 2013 at 3:02 pm #

        I wouldn’t mind unravelling it with my teeth…..

        • CinematiqueChic May 11, 2013 at 4:01 pm #

          Haha! I like your way of thinking. Although if I was going to remove something of Sergio’s with my teeth I’d want there to be skin underneath, not another pesky layer of clothes.

          • Dr. Heidi May 12, 2013 at 2:46 pm #

            Well, the yarn could be used for restraints of course…..since there’s so freakin’ much of it……oh there goes my imagination again…..*counting the days until the arrival of the Ramos*

  4. Anonymous May 10, 2013 at 7:18 pm #

    U believe Raphael Varane was there also with his girlfriend Camille?

  5. Ana May 10, 2013 at 7:59 pm #

    And… HOORAY for our Basketball Blancos! Well done, them! I confess to knowing eff all about basketball but I’d turn up to watch shirts drying on a washing line if they had Real Madrid crests on them!

  6. Anna May 10, 2013 at 8:34 pm #

    Kaka, I love you, but you really need to learn to get a regular hair cut…

  7. Luz May 11, 2013 at 7:45 am #

    I’m SO jealous of you, Lozil, that you went to the premiere and afterparty of “Star Trek into Darkness” – especially considering the fact that I’m a Cumberbitch – that man is pure perfection *sigh*
    I hope you’ve had a great evening/night 🙂

    Am I the only one who has noticed how some of our players have a dip in form when they start growing hair?? Benzema, Pepe, Arbeloa…..

      My ticket was courtesy of BC! He is a lovely, delightful man. I’ve worked in both the music and sports industries and have met a lot of big names. Some are great, others are very unpleasant. He’s not at all. Down to earth, extraordinarily polite, very unassuming. A true gent. (and yes, very delicious)

  8. jellyace May 11, 2013 at 9:50 am #

    While the pics at the Madrid Open were of the celebs in the stands, did you see who they were watching? Fellow Spaniard Pablo Andújar is utterly gorgeous! And he won his match to meet Rafael Nadal in the semi-finals!

    Is Men’s Health trying to kill me?! Seriously… Dead… Fucking Victor… GRRRRRR

    • Mehreh May 11, 2013 at 11:26 am #

      I want to know MORE about that scar. With my tongue. Wait, what? Where am I?

      • mygypsyspirit May 11, 2013 at 11:28 am #

        Get in line, darling…

        I would also like to explore Girnude’s luscious V…

  10. Allison May 11, 2013 at 1:07 pm #

    Random thoughts inspired by this post: Where does one even purchase a Dr. Seuss cardigan? Why am I teaching kindergarten when I could be getting paid to oil up Victor Valdes?

    • Luz May 12, 2013 at 3:20 pm #

      I’ve been asking myself the exact same question since I saw Michael Phelps get oiled up at a photoshoot before the olympics.
      I didn’t even know that such job existed….damn you, school councelor.

  11. la-la May 12, 2013 at 3:56 pm #

    This is massively off topic but did anyone else see the Bayern celebrations? Its related to so bad its good clothing so I thought it might just fit in here..apparently they asked all of their home supporters to wear traditional bavarian dress, and im not sure whether they did but BOY did those Bayern guys rock that leiderhosen. I must have laughed for a good 10 minutes

    • headbandsandheartbreak May 12, 2013 at 8:40 pm #

      They looked like they were having a ball. I agree – I need to have a celebration like that myself!

  12. la-la May 12, 2013 at 4:00 pm #

    I posted before i finished there..dur
    Anyway, clearly im totally mindblown by mid lengh leather shorts. whatever my next pivotal life celebration is, you can bet for damn sure its going to include leather clothing, comedy glasses and massive steins of lager…

  13. Mel May 13, 2013 at 12:19 pm #

    Am I the only one, who thinks the tension between cris and irina can be cut with a knife?
    They do not look happy or in love at all anymore!! Shame!

    • La-la May 13, 2013 at 12:58 pm #

      I think he definitely looks more keen – he’s moving in for a kiss and you’re right, she hardly moves – did you see the pics of the alleged double Mesut date too? He was hanging onto her with both arms and she looked really pissed off. although that could have been a side effect of having some random stranger shoving a camera in your face. Maybe she’s more typically russian and reserved whereas he’s a full on stage 4 clinger mammies boy! lol.

    • headbandsandheartbreak May 13, 2013 at 4:22 pm #

      Well, there’s a piccy of them smooching and smiling that I’m going to post today, so perhaps that camera just caught her actually watching the tennis? When I’m watching a game, I’m focused and frowny. My dream date could be sitting next to me and the best he’d get out of me would be a grunt until the half. 😉
