Wednesday Training And More

17 Jul

Entrenamiento_del_Real_Madrid (1)The Baby came out and trained with the team for the first half of the session before returning to the gym. It was so great to see him again especially since it’s being reported that Xabi will be out until at least October. We need all our players healthy and back on the team. There were also visitors over the last two days. Even though those players who were in the Confederations Cup aren’t due back until July 28, both Iker and Sergio stopped by to meet with their new coach. Sergio reportedly got in a workout as well.

One of the things that kept me occupied when looking at the training pictures was trying to decide who was more orange: Mesut or Cris?

Lordy, those boys need to step away from the tanning bed, self-tanner, the beach or whatever they’re doing. I don’t need my team rocking the Tan Mom look.

Sergio is in BeInSport’s new La Liga commercial. I see that he didn’t attempt English this time. Poor bebe! Only a month till the season starts! Whooo! I got a kick out of this story that watishista Rosa linked in the comments section. I sure as hell am suffering from Football Withdrawal Disorder! How about y’all?

Cristiano is a “global nutrition partner” with Herbalife now.

I cracked up seeingCris’s little smirk when he says “Have you had your shake today?”

I also got a giggle from this La Sexta video (via MGEF). It’s Calleti teaching the Italian press how to say his name. So get this, Napoli chairman Aurelio De Laurentiis confirmed that Napoli is making a bid for Pipa. Damn, they’re just scooping up our entire team, aren’t they?

And thats all for tonight – I’m whupped and heading to sleep now – more tomorrow. G’night all!

    i feel like cris probably looks at the herbalife guy and thinks,”my body didn’t get this way eating fried chicken and sodas. i know nutrition” but has to sit through the lecture anyway.

    For once, BeIn does something right! Although I would have loved to see Sergio try in English again. I know speaking is a totally different thing from understanding/writing, but from his tweets he seems like he’s getting better.

    Football Withdrawal Disorder is a real and terrible thing!

    Oh Cris how I love you…he looked bored shitless then his manners got the better of him and he’s all ‘mmm that looks delicious!’ when the herbalife wonk was doing his thing. Bless. I wish half of the people I had to do presentations for behaved like that! In a meeting today the lady I’d travelled 3 hours to see looked like she could barely contain the desire to roll her eyes at me…

    Sidenote, aren’t Herbalife also major Messi sponsors?

    I will have to turn on BeInSport to see if I can see the commercial.

    As for the orange color between Mesut and Cris, I would go with Cris because he does everything to get a tan… He’ll be mighty disappointed when he turns 40 and his face is covered with wrinkles. I guess he didn’t get the memo about being in the sun trying to get a tan. I did when I was his age but I got a skin cancer thing on my nose and now my nose looks like a pirate nose with a scar crossing the bottom end of the nose!

      Oh ouch! Hope you’re all clear now? Most of my Spanish friends don’t do SPF at all, and all but laugh in my face at my insistance on factor 50 in med sun…I don’t think there is the same awareness that sun = cancer, let alone sun = wrinkles
