Monday Bits & Bobs

tumblr_mp96s9pZz81r6ibubo1_500Work again has kept me from updating until quite late. Bah humbug! Pretty much all anyone was talking about today was the Confederations Cup. How about that goal line clearance from David Luiz? EPIC. Here he is carting Enzo around. Too much adorable for one picture. 

Brazil's Marcelo helps his son hold the trophy as teammate Neymar looks on as they celebrate winning their Confederations Cup final soccer match against Spain at the Estadio Maracana in Rio de JaneiroEnzo also got to pose with the Cup itself, Neymar and his papi. Marcelo & David had their time with the Cup too.

Clarice was there to cheer her man on along with her friends. Shakira was also there with her pal, Brazilian singer Ivete Sangalo.

Elsewhere in Brazilian Ana Sofia & Pepe posted a picture from their night out at the Caetano Veloso concert.

Iria provided a shot of DLo’s players on the field and a clip from the press showing Zoe & her papi.


Meanwhile, Kaka was off to China. He posed with Chinese basketball players Sun Ming Ming and Yao Ming. He also posted a shot to let us all know that his wife dressed him. Shigs will be quaking when she sees that second picture, for sure.

To cleanse the palate, here’s proud parents Stu & Karalyn Face Timing with their dog Toby while they were away. I cannot bear how cute the three of them are.

Speaking of puppies, Mesut posted another shot of Balboa. Seriously, did he kick Rocky to the curb or something?!
ee07d3aee13511e2bf2722000a1fbc66_7Here’s a couple of quick links. For fans of Nuri Sahin’s bebe Omer, here’s some adorable video that the proud papa posted.

And many fangirls will be happy (or unhappy depending on who you are) to hear that Pilar has finally come out in the press and denied the rumors that she’s carrying the spawn of The Ramos. There’s been a whole lot of shrieking about it online for the past week or two. We didn’t post anything because, ugh, we just couldn’t bear a visit from the Drama Llama. We prefer not to feed him ’round here. (Well, not that often).

So enough of that! Maisougio and I were discussing today how traumatized Iker would be if Sergio was having a baby on top of the fact that Xavi is going to get married (TO A GIRL! I KNOW!) before him. Sara, c’mon now. It’s time you put a ring on it. Also, I’m pretty sure that Iker would be willing carry the child because he must have grown a uterus by now. DO THE RIGHT THING, GIRL. How could you watch him laying on the ground sobbing yesterday and not agree to marry/procreate with him? Anything to stop him crying. Anything. Sigh.

    Even pepe reina wants iker and Sara to have a baby. When you have his blessing, how can you not want to? Many here would be MORE than willing to fill in if she’s not ready…

    Luis’s biological clock is pretty darn loud too. He looks ready to steal a baby and raise it with iker.

      I would totally support David Luiz & Iker raising a baby together! They both so obviously want kids like YESTERDAY.

    David Luiz AND Enzo? My squee meter just went into the red. 😀

    I’m soooooo happy with the game!!! Yes, i’m Brazilian; and to think that, like a month ago we weren’t so confident in our boys… But felipão is doing a great job, creating a good environment, a group, argh!!!! Sooo happy. Yes, it’s not THE world cup, BUT it’s an important step for us, given our situation. Can’t wait for next year!! One thing gets me worried though: Xabi will probably be here next year, and I want to see him happy and drunk; it feels like sophie’s choice to me 😐
    David Luiz saved the day, it would have been very different if that ball went in, glad it didn’t…
    The fans were a big part the entire tournament, the anthem was amazing, really it was beautiful!!

    P.S.: sorry for so many exclamation points, i’m really excited because OOOOOO CAMPEÃO VOLTOU!!!

      The anthem was spine tingling! Just beautiful.

        It was. And that was when I thought, “Uh oh, we are in trouble here. These people are fired up!” Fair play to Brazil, they outplayed the Spanish team. That save by David Luiz was remarkable. And Fred! I hadn’t heard of him before, but I’m paying attention now.

          Brazil totally deserved their win and the cup. Well played.
          Real Madrid should buy Fred!

    I must confess that I’m happy Brazil won. There, I said it. Moving on…

    Axe murder-y Kaka is kinda hot, but I’d keep my taser handy. There was a time, not too long ago, when I thought he was honest-to-goodness hot. Anyone remember the Vanity Fair WC2010 issue? What happened?!!

    • jellyace July 2, 2013 at 12:37 pm #

      I went out and hunted for that issue! I wonder where my copy went? Hmmmm….

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 2, 2013 at 2:47 pm #

      Brazil deserved to win. No question about it.

    Ooooooooh, Kaka … How very American Psycho-chique.

    Having no vested interest in either teams, but wanting to see the final because … well, it’s the final, I wasn’t all that concerned who won. It being the first time in a looooooong time since I sat down and watched either team play, however, I found myself incredibly distracted by the fact that coaches look pretty damn identical. Every time the camera would cut away to the bench I was stumped as to which side I was looking at. I admit I’m infamous for my poor memory when it comes to faces (and names), but I’m not imagining it this time, am I??

    • GoonerKate July 2, 2013 at 9:35 am #

      I thought the exact same thing! Maybe I have face blindness, but to me they looked pretty much exactly alike.

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 2, 2013 at 2:46 pm #

      No, definitely wasn’t just you. We were discussing it and even the commentators mentioned it. Scolari & Del Bosque could be brothers.

    Clarice is awesome. And seeing Enzo on the pitch with the trophy, and Marcelo being so happy, made it almost impossible to be too unhappy with the results. Congrats to Brazil!

    Just so much joy here! I LOVE Yorkies, I wonder if Mou n Tami still have Leia??

    And Xavi’s getting married?! (snort at your comment)…and Sergio didn’t sperminate his GF?! And Kaka looks just like Patrick Bateman, and Pepe is engaged! And the Brazil team love Enzo as much as we do! I didn’t end up watching the match after and I’m sad to hear Iker had a bit of a cry but at least he’s back where he belongs right?

    So lets bring on the holiday photos!
