La Roja Return!

4 Jun

La Roja have already arrived in Miami (as you can see from this airport shot). Both Iker & Juanin shared shots as well.

However, La Roja arrived yesterday at Las Rozas so there’s some pictures and videos to catch up on! Off we go…

The team had some promotional duties to accomplish as well. First up, they received their insurance certification from Pelayo, an official sponsor of the National Team. If I got free insurance coverage, I’d be calling the media as well. A girl can dream.

They also received personalized Audemars Piguet watches commemorating their Euro 2012 win.

And they had their first training! How could I forget that? Most importantly, we saw the return of Sernando. Glory, glory hallelujah!

In addition to the Sernando love in these gifs, do you see the Double A action in the background? How wonderful is that?!

There was an interview with Sergio as part of the La Energia de la Roja campaign. You can follow it on the website, Facebook and Twitter.

There’s also this fantastic Spain National Team Iberdrola commercial. Villa strips off at the end and of course, he’s wearing Under Armor. That shiz should be outlawed!

Bleurgh – I have more goodies to share but as it’s chugging along toward midnight, I really need to get some sleep. More tomorrow. Spare a thought for poor Dr. Heidi, who probably won’t sleep a wink tonight, knowing that Sergio Ramos is in her town.

    Anyone care to translate the interview with Sergio? I caught some of it but his slangy Andalusian accent always puts my rudimentary high-school Spanish to shame 😦

    (And if not the whole thing, what does he say about Rafa Nadal?)

    Thanks so much!!

      I’m not fluent but having lived in Seville slangy Andalusian accents are my specialty!

      The Rafa nadal bit is when they ask about autographs. He says that when he was a kid he snuck into the Hotel Colon where Barca players were staying, and that Rafa’s uncle (Miguel Angel Nadal, ex-Barca player) saw him. And that he got to meet all the players.

      Then (I think) he said that when he played for the Sevilla youth team he used to be a ‘coñazo’ or a pain in the arse to the players and ask them for autographs.

      Hope that helps!

        Awesome, thank you so much!

        Aww, baby Sergio sneaking around for autographs is such a cute picture in my head 🙂

        Thanks again, you’re awesome ❤

    Dear GOD…I don’t think that I have EVER wanted Sergio more than when I took a look at that pic for his orange (tight but not too douchey tight) tee, non-tacky jeans (but honestly those silly jeans of the past are why I’m hot for him in the first place), and that nike snap back. Christ I’m burning up! Honestly the Roja summer bromance post keep me going during the off season. Thank you, just thank you.

    those gifs of Sernando and the Double A’s … I got way too excited when I saw them, I was all like “double bromance omg”.
    I feel like the reason Sergio will never grow his hair back is so that he can keep wearing those awful trucker hats – I don’t mind if he doesn’t grow his hair back because I love it short but I mind if he covers his hair up so we can’t see it at all!

    It’s kind of disgusting how happy I am that they’re in the same country as me. Counting down the days until the 11th when I get this glory in person!!

    • Rose June 5, 2013 at 10:12 am #

      SAME HERE! I was like they’re in the same time zone as I am, this is so awesome! Can’t wait to see them all next week!

    “Villa strips off at the end,” 😀 “and of course, he’s wearing Under Armor.” 😦 Very cute commercial though.

    My skin is tingling, I’m forgetting to breathe…..I wish I knew when the hell practice starts….I have already staked out my real estate before work today……oh dear god, can this be REAL? I assume I will have a very bad case of fence face this afternoon…..*tingling all over*

    • Rose June 5, 2013 at 10:14 am #

      Eeeeeek! Glad to know you’re all ready for them! Have the best time and I hope you get some face time with them all!

  8. Dr Heidi June 5, 2013 at 10:15 am #

    BIG NEWS!!!! the team has changed their mind, and practices are OPEN!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!! oh dear god, finally something is falling in my favor!

    • Dr Heidi June 5, 2013 at 10:17 am #

      I think maybe my badgering had something to do with it???? Yeah, I’m going with that….

    • CinematiqueChic June 5, 2013 at 10:28 am #

      That’s awesome! I hope you get a great view! Have fun!!

    • headbandsandheartbreak June 5, 2013 at 10:36 am #

      Great news! Thanks!

    • Rose June 5, 2013 at 10:39 am #


      Obviously fate has conspired to bring you and La Roja together. And now we don’t have to bail you out of jail! Unless, you know, you do something really crazy. Have fun!

  9. Dr Heidi June 5, 2013 at 10:42 am #

    hubby will NOT be pleased, but he’ll have to deal….

  10. Dr Heidi June 5, 2013 at 10:44 am #

    I’m sorry for all the posts today….I am full of nervous energy! Did anyone notice in the Sernando gifs that as Sergio is conversing with Nando, he’s playing with his package? Freudian? *giggling*

    • ola June 5, 2013 at 11:50 am #

      haha I saw this too 😛

    • SR 4 June 5, 2013 at 1:11 pm #

      That was the first thing I noticed ;). The second thing was Sergio`s hands in the first gif. What is that long Sese? And then Nando is actually pointing to himself and Sergio is touching his private parts. I can´t even… You couldn´t make it up.
      I hope you have the best of time Dr. Heidi and get to take loads of pics of Sergio and some bromance ones.

      Also for some reason Nando´s backpack with the zipper is killing me.

      • Dr Heidi June 5, 2013 at 1:14 pm #

        I didn’t notice the first one until you mentioned it…..we can provide the narrative on THAT conversation can’t we? too funny…

      • Dr Heidi June 5, 2013 at 1:17 pm #

        just like true bros…..Sergio loves zippers in odd places (that tan blazer thing), now Nando and his backpack. these two are truly entertaining….

        • SR 4 June 5, 2013 at 2:12 pm #

          They really are. They will always be my favourite bromance.

    Those gifs of Sernando and the AAs walking have inspired me!

    What Roberto Soldado Overhears

    Sergio: Did you have to be so nice to Care Bear?
    Nando: Hombre, he’s our teammate!
    Albiol: Si, Alvaro, Pipa said it was because of you.
    Arbeloa: Me? What did I do?

    Sergio: Si, hombre, but did you have to lend him your car?
    Nando: Me? It was Olalla’s idea and it was her car.
    Albiol: You pushed him away from our AA team and said you would never agree to A-H-A.
    Arbeloa: Really? And that’s why he’s going to Arsenal?

    Sergio: Okay, fine, He was new in town, so you lent him a car. But no more. If he doesn’t want to buy a car, that’s his problem.
    Nando: That’s why he rides the Tube. I think he can’t deal with driving on the left side of the road.
    Arbeloa: I can’t figure why Arsenal? I thought Pipa was a winner. They win nothing!
    Albiol: See? He’s running away from us, hombre!
    Sergio: Shhh! Change the subject. Here comes Care Bear.

      Hahahaha! Brilliant. Love the juxtaposition of the conversation, and the inference that they, like teenage girls, have perpetual drams going on. After a shitty day being dragged into office politics this is the kind of entertainment I need!

      • headbandsandheartbreak June 5, 2013 at 6:20 pm #

        If this season taught us anything, it’s that football players ARE just like teenage girls and have perpetual drams going on! 😉

        I hate being dragged into office politics. Going through that myself right now. ARGH>

        • la-la June 6, 2013 at 5:12 pm #

          Yep, get that ARGH! OP is such an epic time suck, wasting hours on giving air space to negative, non productive shit. Still, the weekend is upon us, the weather forcast is awsome, spotify emailed me (personally) to let me know the new QOTSA release is available RIGHT NOW, and I’ve got a copy of Tyler Hamilton’s The Secret Race…*happy face*
