Wednesday Night Bits & Bobs

10 Jul

That awkward moment when you meet the guy you named your dog after.

An eagle-eyed cule (Photo by @barzaboy) spotted Messi & Cesc chatting with Isco in Ibiza and thankfully, snapped a picture. Ha!  I can see it now:

Messi: “Hey, I heard you named your dog after me! That’s so nice!”
Isco: “CESC! You promised you wouldn’t tell!”
Cesc: “Erm….”

The scenario is made even more cringeworthy because Isco looks like he’s wearing an adult diaper. Or worse, potty training pants. I know he’s young, but he can’t be that young! And call me old fashioned, but if we’re going to pay €24 million for a player, I think they should come housebroken, you know?

Here’s more of Cesc, Lia, Messi, Antonella and the ridiculously delightful Thiago Chin Puddle in Ibiza. I’m completely fascinated by this kid. His expressions are comedy gold. Antonella is so pretty, isn’t she?

The fine folks over at infocasillas were kind enough to scan the issue of  Hola magazine that has shots of Iker and Sara on their vacay. They asked that you please don’t repost on other websites without credit. So if you pass these on, please make sure to share the full credit to both infocasillas and Hola.



The glorious Andrea Pirlo continues to look manly, existential and just all around badass in Ibiza in his floral shorts. I wonder what sort of wisdom he’s imparting to the kids?


Fabio Coentrao earns awesome good daddy awards for plonking himself down in the middle of an all pink, all princessy, fairy tale pumpkin coach birthday party for his adorable 3 year old, Vitoria. Mami Andreia looks pleased as punch. You know Fabio must play tea party with Vitoria. He obviously dotes on his little girl. (Iker’s going to be like that when he has a girl, no doubt. “Sweetie, let’s dress up and have a tea party!”Um, papi? I really want to go out and kick the ball around the yard.” ::Iker’s eyes well up with tears:: “Whatever you want, mi princesa! You are perfect in every way and I am blessed to have you!”  Ikerita: “Oy!“)

Stu Holden played and scored (Hooray!) in the USMNT’s match vs. Belize last night. Girlfriend Karalyn West surprised him when she and her friends held up giant hilarious Stu heads in the stands. Karalyn took Stu’s head in her carry on luggage on the way home. Stu also posed with teammate Oguchi Onyewu. Aw, c’mon Gooch! You couldn’t have taken off your shirt too? Gooch without his shirt is a very pleasant sight indeed as you can see here and here.

And finally, here are a bunch of “single” updates. Click on the picture to scroll through the gallery and see the captions…

And now, I much catch up on this week’s episode of True Blood if I can stay awake long enough. I can’t believe I’ve made it this far into the week without seeing it!

    I love baby Thiago! I think he is too adorable. Is it just me or does he look like the baby version of the little boy from Up?

      I’ve been to Ibiza before and it is more of a family type vacation. I guess the secret is to find out where these folks are staying. I have a feeling it would be out of my league as far as the price of the room goes.

        Depends on what part of Ibiza you’re hanging in. It’s clubbing central! I know they’re trying to promote it as more of a family destination now, but the nightlife there is legendary.

          I couldn’t get a good handle on the intended feel of the place when I was there….beautiful, no doubt.
