The Universe Knows…

26 Jul

Entrenamiento (13)I burst out laughing when I saw today’s training shots. The universe obviously must know that A. ) It’s Kaka terrorized watishista Shigs‘ birthday (well, it was Wednesday but we’re celebrating tonight) and/or B.) that Kaka luvvin’ watishista mygypsyspirit is in Madrid. There is no other explanation for the ridiculous amount of Kaka pictures that the RM photogs churned out today. Hilarious.

Sheesh! It’s almost like no other player existed today (Okay, I exaggerate, but STILL!) There were a few other dudes hanging around training…

The team is getting ready to play Paris Saint Germain at Ullevi Stadium in Gothenberg, Sweden on Saturday.  It will Ancelotti’s first match against his former team and – dun dun dun! – RM will be facing my Drool Amnesty Zlatan Ibrahimovic in his home country. I’m pretty sure that he has magical powers when he is on Swedish soil. I would LOVE to fly to Sweden for this game, but alas, I’m lacking in those kinda funds. I’ve never seen Zlatan play in person, but one of these days! (I saw PSG last summer, but it was right before he joined the squad much to my chagrin).

The following players are called up for the match.

Goalkeepers: Diego López, Adán and Jesús.
Defenders: Pepe, Coentrão, Carvajal, Nacho, Mateos and Casado.
Midfielders: Khedira, Özil, Kaká, Modric, Di María, Isco, Casemiro, Cheryshev and Quini.
Forwards: Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema and Morata.

And on that note, I must run. I’m going to be late for Shigs‘ birthday celebration as it is. A big ol’ bits & bobs post tomorrow to catch up.

    I saw those training pics earlier and couldn’t wait to see what you guys said. 😀 I don’t think I have ever given this particular advice to anyone before, but Kaka should not smile. He’s much better looking and much less creepy with a serious face.

    Happy belated, shigs! I hope y’all get her enough drinks that she won’t remember these pics.

    It is simply wonderful to see xabi back in training. It’s just not the same without him!

    That’s a mighty fine leg Ronaldo is showing there!

    Oh, hey, it’s a hurdle! I love how much training looks like track practice sometimes.

    Also- bummed that Illarra has a dinged leg right now because he’s precious and I want to see more of him.

    The universe is pretty weird sometimes hahaha. With that said, I kind of wish they were playing this friendly at The Bernabeu so I could go. I suppose I’ll settle for Spanish television. I’m not complaining. I love this city!!!

    Glad to see I am not alone in my Ibra love 😉 Someday I will see him play live (it’s my secret hope he decides to come play for DC United). Of course, there’s no question who I am cheering for today…Hala Madrid!

      I love him to pieces as well. I’m rooting for our boys today but sneaking peeks at Zlatan! 😉

      You are not alone. He has the kind of personality that you need to get over…but once you’re there, no going back

    Happy birthday, Shiggers!!! Wishing you all the best, but I think Kaka beat me to it!
