Tuesday Bits & Bobs, Part II

10 Jul

tumblr_mpobkafY2p1rlnonjo1_400So, I’m teetering on the edge of exhaustion here, peeps. It’s been a long ass day. I’m going to catch up on things as quickly as I can. Please forgive me for my lack of, um, brains? typing? everything? At this point, I’m about to fall asleep on my feet.

First up is David Villa. Many of us were taken by surprise when his transfer to Atleti was announced. As for that bargain price, well, it’s not as bad as we thought.

tumblr_mpobkafY2p1rlnonjo2_500Allow Italian sports journalist Tancredi Palmeri to break it down for you:

tancredi13 million Euros is certainly nothing to bitchface about, that’s for sure.

Our beloved Calleti is off for Napoli. Arbeloa tweeted a picture and sweet dedication to him today. Nice to know that Arbetti will continue.

7bd3aef2e8c411e2a23222000aaa0537_7Excuse the Google Translation – I’m busy choking back my tears. “…a good neighbor, best companion and above all a great friend, I will miss you very much @ jcallejon21! I wish you all the best in this new stage, you’ll certainly do great! I’ll see you soon!” The last sentence was in Italian. That better not mean that Arbeloa is going to Italy or I might have a shitfit.

What is this season going to do to our bromance balance? I can’t even begin to think about it. But enough transfer drama, let’s get back to vacations and fun and things that don’t make me sad.

Cristiano posted another shot from his Monaco excursion.  He continued his jet setting by attending the inauguration of the Dinamo Tiflis academy in Tiflis, Georgia, on July 7th and posed for pictures with the kids.

Marcelo hung out with lots of folks  including a reunion of former Fluminense buddies Thiago Silva and Marco Aurélio. He was also excited to receive his own personalized G-Shock watch.

Stu & Karalyn are in Portland as the US take on Belize. I love this couple, they’re just so silly together.

Nando is still in Dubai and looking rather hot in his New York jersey…

tumblr_mpolxeq7RE1s3xw7ko1_500Nagore shared a picture of the shore and of an ice cream cone shaped as a flower. Next time, throw in a shot of your hot husband, por favor!

The lovely Juan Mata continues to impress with the photos he posts on his Instagram. Here’s a look at his vacation.


Sami shared some pictures from London while Lena gave us more pictures of her looking hot.


Dr. Heidi may want to avert her eyes because here’s more Sergio & Pilar pictures (along with some fan shots) from the wedding…

Weird thing I noticed: Here’s Pilar modeling two dresses by Rosa Clara. If you look at the wedding shots. She’s wearing one and Mirian Ramos is wearing the other.

Guess where Sese is now? Last seen in…ATLANTA!  Instagram user Wildeeberry bumped into him at the airport. Here’s that shot a couple other fan pictures.


It seems like every other ‘baller is parked somewhere on a beach. (I can’t blame them, but…)

Big news! The Baby Jesus has made an appearance in public! The Son of Navas has not been seen (at least photographically) since soon after his birth. But Jesus & Alejandra recently took Jesus Jr. to the shore.

Romina is still in Ibiza and she showed off her new tattoo in honor of her baby, Enzo. Guti is definitely having an influence on her in terms the body art, isn’t he?

Silva is also in Ibiza, hanging with his buds and sipping Corona.

Two other ‘ballers I love are also beaching it. Olivier Giroud (Saint Tropez) and Andrea Pirlo.

Good lord, that boy is yummy! Complete and utter DILF. Speaking of, Pirlo and his manly beardy action also qualify for that designation.

It takes a confident man to wear those floral shorts, but Pirlo is such a badass, he can carry anything off. Love him.

And finally, here are some pictures of Iker and Sara from last summer. I don’t remember seeing these and they’re beautiful.

Well, that took longer than I anticipated and it’s after midnight. Argh. Anyhow, off to sleep for me. Gotta be up early tomorrow.

    Thoughts on Olivier Giroud: Did he steal his girlfriend’s shirt? Dayyyuuuummm! Hotness! Do he & Cesc have the same style tattoo on their arms?

    Shirtless Silva. Thank you very much
    Shirtless Villa. Thank you very much

    Atlanta you say… I’m driving from North Carolina to Florida today and have a some time to spare 😛

    y’know, i was thinking when i saw mirian and pilar,”i bet they shopped together.” so seeing pilar in that dress makes sense. i guess the same designer donated their dresses?

    • Dr Heidi July 10, 2013 at 10:28 am #

      girlfriend, you are killing me with the Sergio/Pilar thing…..ugh! anyway, hey Cinematique Chic, coming back to my neck of the woods next month for Champions Cup, right?

      • headbandsandheartbreak July 10, 2013 at 10:51 am #

        Sigh. He’s with her, he’s schtuppiing her, his family apparently loves her, she’s his choice and everyone is just going to have to put on their big girl panties and deal with it. If you can’t handle seeing Sergio with women, you’re in for a life of pain, because that boy is well known for playing the field.

        • Dr Heidi July 10, 2013 at 10:57 am #

          That I know! Just read a funny article about his ‘womanizing’. Damn, I’m a couple decades too old for that beautiful man….

    surprisingly Fernando looks really hot in that jersey dayumm

    • Dr Heidi July 10, 2013 at 12:28 pm #

      and shark shorts! He looks freakishly tall, doesn’t he? I am consoling myself from the Sergio/Pilar onslaught by gawking at Silva and Giroud……thank you for that by the way…..

      • Dr Heidi July 10, 2013 at 12:37 pm #

        and Sergio playing the congas……priceless

    Indeed, $13mill is nothing to bitchface about. Shows Barcelona had big expectations and plans for him when he signed, which is flattering. I swear, Italian men can wear anything and make it look good. Here’s another of Mata on vacation looking slightly disheveled and maybe tipsy (now that someone else gave me a link): http://statigr.am/p/492707206950659693_380396128

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 10, 2013 at 1:37 pm #

      Yes, you mentioned that in an earlier comment and I forgot to include it in last night’s round up posts – I was so bleary eyed. I’ll add it to today’s.

  7. hopechaser July 10, 2013 at 2:28 pm #

    Pls don’t think I was trying to force it or anything; I just realized I never put the link to begin with. Stupidity on my part. You’d think working in IT I’d be a little more savvy. How you pull together these posts so comprehensively blows me away.

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 10, 2013 at 3:49 pm #

      Oh, you gave me Yossi’s Instagram name on the first comment, I just plumb forgot about it. 🙂

    Ramos is playing bongos??? Cool, can we get a video of that? and Romina, i get the idea of a tattoo to mark smth big in u life, but that is huge!!!

  9. Mel July 11, 2013 at 5:12 pm #

    In 2006 Sergio Ramos was by far THE HOTTEST BALLER in my book, now 6 years later not so much! Guess part of the attraction was the fab long brown hair! My crush on him is over. Not even the tattoes or the hot headed temper on field can make up for the hair loss.
    He’s just any random guy now 😦
    Same with Fernando Torres, the attraction went away when he chopped the beautiful blonde locks!
    My heart is crying!!!!!!!

    The Romina tattoo is the perfect example of a fond that is impossible to read! If you’re gonna get something written on your body permanently, at least make sure people are able to read it without a magnifying glass!

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 11, 2013 at 5:19 pm #

      So who is your new crush?

      • Mel July 11, 2013 at 5:41 pm #

        It’s still open, because not really a lot of long haired spaniards left… But I do have a soft spot for Diego Forlan!!!
        Might give it to Pirata, if he returns to Madrid 😀

        Have you got any suggestions?
