Sunday Bits & Bobs: Part I

15 Jul

21399_275511912587848_1495007590_nAnd now we’re on to the first of the evening’s bits & bobs posts. Here’s Albiol with his girls. Look at how Alma is looking adoringly up at her papi. Alicia must be due any day now.  I can’t wait to see their baby boy. I’ll miss this family if they head off to Napoli but just as with Calleti, I will keep track of them.
One of the silliest things today that I read was the Spanish media shrieking about how Arbeloa’s yacht had an accident and sunk in Ibiza.  The Arbeloa family immediately shot back that they didn’t have a yacht and weren’t in Ibiza.

Carlota hilariously posted the following picture saying that this was the only yacht they owned and it was still peacefully afloat.

BPINqlsCMAEGXk5Here’s a couple of other pictures I found from an event they attended. The first is Carlota with a friend and the second is Alba & her cousin Yago (Raul Arbeloa’s son). Carlota also said that having two children is not twice the work, it’s triple! She said they’re tired, but happy. I hope we get to see more of baby Raul soon.

c1e0d652ecc211e2a0c022000a1f918d_7I love them together. They’re never showy or ridiculous, they just have an obvious and enduring bond. I hope their little family is reunited soon.

Cristiano shared his love of fishing and how excited he was to wear his new Mercurial Vapors tomorrow at training. Fishing and football! For all his metrosexual tendencies, he’s such a DUDE. 😉

BO9olvzCIAEbOhL BPJ7IJDCQAETByLAndreia posted a sweet note about how much she & Fabio adore their little girl with a compilation of pictures of Vitoria and another one of the birthday party.

BTW, if you were wondering this is Isco’s girlfriend Victoria Calderon. It’s interesting that he said recently that he was single because he sure brought her along to his presentation (and she was with him in Ibiza).

Kaka and Carol shared some pictures with friends and the kids. Not sure if all of you know, but Kaka’s brother Digao plays for the New York Red Bulls (well, not really but…) and this caused Shigs some unease having a local Leite connection. Watishista forzasusan sent me this article saying that maybe Shigs’ could sleep better now that Kaka’s brother had been cut. I replied that as long as the word “Kaka” and “cut” were in the same sentence, probably not. But now that Digao is moving on, perhaps she’ll eventually feel better.

Karim decided to get serious about his fitness and began training before he returned to Madrid. Sadly, he did not get serious about getting rid of that animal pelt stapled to his bonce. And for those keeping track of his ever on-off again romance with Sarah, they were spotted together in Geneva on June 22nd.

Luka, Vanja and Ivano were spotted last week but baby Ema is not in sight.
999828_275462845926088_1355362762_nMarcelo and his family continue to be bright spots in my day. Here’s some more pictures of Marcelo with Enzo at the beach, snuggling with Clarice, wearing matching shoes with best friend/brother in law Caio as well as photos of them hanging with friends, training, views of Brazil and some spot on graffiti.

Pepe and Ana Sofia are also in Brazil (gorgeous landscape shot there). She posted a picture of Angeli’s delicious piggies and some with Pepe’s sister Katy. You can totally see the family resemblance!

Sergio kissed a dolphin on his vacation. You don’t even want to get my started on my views about swimming with captive dolphins. I’ll go on for hours.
And now onto Mesut and Mandy, who continue their Festival of PDA all over Ibiza. I gotta say, I just find it all a bit over the top. I just rolled my eyes when Mandy posted this shot.
f2fe1f66eb1311e28ddc22000a9f15db_7It just doesn’t work for me. Then again, it doesn’t have to. It has to work for them, as long as they’re happy, that’s all that matters.  Oh well, here you go. I will say his bod is looking good and Mandy’s is smokin’. As for her mounting him in public? Who does she think she is? Sergio Ramos? 😉

Mesut is on his way back to Madrid with the every present Balboa. Here’s one of his new Adidas ads.

Thanks for the kind words from many of you. We’ve all been through a lot together in this little community that we’ve made over the last 3 years. We’ve celebrated and mourned together so it feels natural to share my thoughts. I know it may not be for everyone, but I think that how we express ourselves here has been part of the draw. So I have no doubt we’ll continue on with that.  For those of you who dig it, thanks for understanding and appreciating who we are.  As for those who don’t, sorry for any offense, but as Popeye once wisely said “I yam what I yam” Been that way for a long time, can’t see it changing any time soon so if you do stick around, you’ve been forewarned. 😉

    Really Mandy!( I don’t hate her, just hate the fact that she gets to hang on Mesut the whole day)!

    • headbandsandheartbreak July 15, 2013 at 1:29 am #

      Oh I don’t hate her either, but the two of them act like they’re in heat in front of the paparazzi!

      • C.M. July 15, 2013 at 4:17 am #

        Me too! I don’t hate Mandy but I find her too much exhibitionist and theatrical, always acting like if she’s under the spotlight.
        Mesut is a little bit more “controlled” (just a little bit!)

    Carlota can always be counted on for sass – I love her!

    thank you. i rolled my eyes so hard i almost pulled something when i saw the heart hand.

      When I first saw this pic I didn’t realize that they were the hands of Meust and Mandy…I thought they were both Mandy’s hands…
      …then somebody explained it to me…and I rolled my eyes too!!! 😉

    Bwahaha. Carlota’s “yacht” photo cracked me up. Love it.

    Am so jealous of all these ballers in sunny, beachy locales; I haven’t been to the beach at all this summer because it hasn’t stopped raining!

    Carlotaaaa won my heart!!! Just like the rest of Madrid’s wifey. I love them as much as love the players. But I had different feeling with the girlfriends, such as I don’t hate Mandy… i just don’t have any feeling for her. Maybe the wedding or baby will help me love them more

    I have to say, that Carlota is my favorite of the wifey/girlfriends across all of football. Clarice and Nagore are extremely close second/third and switch places on a day-to-day basis.
