Mid-day Update

10 Jul

BO02-MjCQAEGGGwOkay, it’s only mid-day because I never seem to make it to bed until the wee hours. Here’s a couple of things and more later.

Calleti & Marta were snapped in Napoli where he underwent a physical today. I’m sure the pictures of his contract signing, etc. will be out soon. (Via @NapoliSphera)

There’s a gigantic 40 foot high Gareth Bale in Times Square. Yeah, don’t ask me. I do know with this gross humidity, I’m not dragging myself up there to schvitz among the tourist throngs tonight. 101 Great Goals’ picture will have to suffice.

Watishista hopechaser kindly sent in this link the other day of Juan Mata hanging with Yossi Benayoun chilling out together in Tel Aviv and I promptly forgot to post it last night. (I know I have a bunch of stuff in our Gmail account that I need to get to as well – sorry!)

bbb098f2e4c611e2829f22000ae9027d_7Speaking of Chelsea peeps, here’s Mou’s first report on the team and signings. I miss him.

Sergio is *somewhere* and it may be the Bahamas. This picture came via @megsherard who bumped into him: “Sergio Ramos is even more beautiful in person! I was too scared of him to stand right beside him!” She mentioned being in the Bahamas 2 days prior so it sounds like a safe bet that’s where he is.

tumblr_mpq9tp3vPP1rmsk02o1_500Here’s a great teaser video about homophobia in football featuring the gentlemen of Stonewall FC by filmmaker Loubna Turjuman. I hope the documentary is being expanded. I don’t see any more information on it though. Sky Sports did a special report on the club that back in February.


Cristiano was in two recent spots for Mobily. In one of them, he’s speaking Arabic. Translation, anyone? Also, how’d he do?


And finally, if one good thing came out of Karim’s hideous haircut, it was this. Watishista Pinpanpamm knocked it straight out of the ballpark and as far into the atmosphere as a Sergio Ramos penalty kick. Truly inspired. Just click on the link, it’s soooo worth it. Both Pam and watishista jillll_O have been cracking me up on Twitter today discussing Karim’s hair. jillll_O had me choking on my tea with this comment: “I wish it were Velcro…I just want to stick things to it: felt flowers, small beanie babies, etc.” You’re both brilliant, ladies. Thanks so much for keeping me entertained during a crummy work day. (We’ve now moved on to discussing Iker – I’m calling it now, he’s going to have  a hysterical pregnancy).

I’m going to print out that Karim picture and hang it on my office wall for days when I need a good laugh.

More later!

    Iker’s hysterical pregnancy is spot on!

    Now, Juanin’s hair is looking good. How is it possible for him to keep getting cuter?

    Oh my GOD, that phot of Karin has been killing me all day. I too have saved to my bookmarks in work so I can just click on it anytime I need a laugh. Granted my boss, who sits behind my new desk, now has official proof that I’m a bit crazy but hey. Thanks for the giggles ladies!

    About cristiano’s video
    the kid first says to cris: they say you are so fast
    and then he asks him if he can turn around the earth with the speed of 4g
    so cris says: again?

    I also feel that Sergio is more beautiful in person! Hope to see him again this summer…
