Thursday Bits & Bobs

1 Aug

tumblr_mqug5o9yZs1qbpdiyo1_500Lordy, I have so many bits & bobs, I don’t even have a clue where to start. Ugh. How’s about I just begin with our boys? Here’s Iker (or rather Geeker from the looks of it) with a fan. Our intrepid capi also posted a  shot of his good friend Roy Batty from Blade Runner who was enjoying some LA poolside tanning. 

sese by ikerHmmm, if Sese is Roy Batty based on hair, does that make long hair era Nando into Pris, the basic pleasure model? Yes, I think it does and I like that idea very much. Sorry, Blade Runner may be my favorite movie of all time.

Luka has buddied up with Mesut & Sami and they make a cute little crew running around LA.

Mesut announced two projects today. The first is his new website. “dear fans, today my new website is launched. hope you like it and you guys find my favorite songs in “my music” as dope as i do! just check it out and click through the sites…” Yeah, well, I haven’t had time to check out his site for any dope-ness but I’ll give it a go at some point.

MesutBut that’s not all! He also has a new logo. Someone’s been working overtime on the marketing, eh? “dear fans! i am also very proud to present my new logo today, which you can see on a shirt from my adidas friends. have fun discovering where the logo will appear in the future…

mesut 2Not exactly sold on that logo. It looks like a misshapen bowling ball or something.

Oh Sergio did us a favor and covered up that stank hair with a baseball cap. I never thought I’d be happy  to see him wearing one of his hats. How times change. Remember when our worst drama was him wearing a stupid flat cap or a bedazzled trucker hat?

tumblr_mquq6bi4UK1rmsk02o1_500DLo had a few piccies with new goalkeeping coach Villiam Vecchi and of course, with David Beckham.  Don’t forget that their time at Real Madrid overlapped.

BTW, have you seen this video of a 17 year old Davy Becks going over media training? The video is going to auction soon and it also features bebe Giggs, Scholes and Neville. It’s a hoot.

Kaka hung out with actor Jamie Foxx, comedian P and also his buds Lucas, Thiago Silva & good ol’ Casanova Casemiro.

Karim, oh Karim, ye of the wretched pelt that is at least not bleached. Many pictures of you today! There’s a few typical ones, hanging in LA, an Adidas ad, meeting D.Becks but I’m cracking up at the hipster ones and the one with him duckfacing next to a little girl? Priceless. You’re a bad influence, K. Benz.

How about checking in with two of our favorite former players: El Pirata and Raul?  El P is still at QPR. I’m really hoping someone snaps him up!

In the first picture, he looks like someone questioned the validity of his indie cred. Heavens forbid! It’s like someone said “I bet you have a huge collection of Michel Telo bootlegs.” It’s that kinda look. And we all know how he feels about Michel Telo.

Raul, Mamen and the kids were vacationing in Menorca. Look how big Maria is getting! (You can click any picture to see the gallery larger).

Mamen looks amazing in a bikini. And she’s had 5 kids! But I can’t help but notice that man behind her in some sort of thong. Oy vey.

Another little family having fun were Pique, Shakira and Milan. They posted some vacation shot and Milan is now in the studio while his mami is recording.

And now it’s time to check in with some of the families and other players… I’m going to do this gallery & caption style.

I have so much more, but I’m getting really sleepy and I’d like to watch the second half of this match.  So more tomorrow! I’ll catch up one of these days.  Let’s go Los Blancos!

    How cute is Valeria Iniesta??

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 2, 2013 at 12:37 am #

      She looks just like her dad, doesn’t she?

      • Allison August 2, 2013 at 12:38 am #

        She’s certainly got his pale skin.

    let’s just name the Sergido THE FUG…..and Ozil’s logo? hmmmm…looks like a pop top tab on a misshapen soda can. oh the humanity…..and the Benzema caterpillar (Benzapillar?) seems to be assisting in the scoring tonight. I guess the ball has more traction????? sigh

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 2, 2013 at 12:36 am #

      That was Kitty’s kitty making the score. Finally the dead cat on his head is earning it’s keep! Mygypsyspirit and I were texting about that.

    Water finds its way to the sea, sergio always finds malls.

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 2, 2013 at 12:37 am #

      It’s so true! I forgot to add his mall tag. Thanks for reminding me. 🙂

    • Allison August 2, 2013 at 12:38 am #

      Right?! I was having a laugh about that. 😀

    • Dr. Heidi August 2, 2013 at 10:04 am #

      Even with that hair, Sergio always makes me smile….*ahhhh, love*

    Iker’s face in that first photo is precious. Like he wants to be nice to his fan and is trying really hard not to make his you are standing so close to me please do not touch me face.

    Maybe it was just his near death experience in the match tonight, but does Luka look less Lady Edith and more masculine to anybody else?

      Our boy is finally becoming a man?

      • CinematiqueChic August 2, 2013 at 9:58 am #

        I think so! He lifted his shirt in the match and there was a six pack. It was unexpected.

    Blurred Lines is one of Mesut’s dope songs. OF COURSE IT IS.

    The United video is hilarious. Paul Scholes’ relationship with the media isn’t much different 20 years later!

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 2, 2013 at 11:51 am #

      Man, that song. It’s catchy as hell but between the lyrics that sound like a manifesto for date rape and the naked ladies video, I’m shaking my head.

      • Backwards August 2, 2013 at 7:30 pm #

        I was into this song and had it on repeat for a while especially at the gym, but the more I listened to it, the more I realized how grossed out I was by the lyrics. I was like, “well it looks like Robin Thicke went for the dudebro easy sell.”

        • headbandsandheartbreak August 2, 2013 at 8:34 pm #

          “dudebro easy sell” is SPOT ON. At first I was like “Hmmm, doesn’t he know how rapey this comes off?” But then the title “Blurred Lines” cleared that right up.

    Also David Beckham doesn’t approve Mesut’s outfit and logo…LOL

  7. Dr. Heidi August 2, 2013 at 10:10 am #

    “Why should I subdue the world, when I can enchant it”….ummmm, Mesut…..whaaaaattttt?

  8. jellyace August 2, 2013 at 1:13 pm #

    Milan is just the cutest woobins ever! I saw pics of Pique and Shakira frolicking in the surf in Hawaii, and six months after giving birth, and her belly is flat! How does she do it?!?

  9. Dr. Heidi August 2, 2013 at 3:38 pm #

    Is it terrible that I can vividly imagine myself approaching Sergio from behind (in that pic by the pool) and wrap my arms around those amazing shoulders? Of course I’d have to do it with my eyes closed (that damn hair)!

    DYING over Fernando as Pris… That’s brilliant.

    Morata’s girlfriend looks so fierce. Good for him, heh.

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 3, 2013 at 3:36 pm #

      If anyone is perfectly cast as the basic pleasure model, it’s Fernando Torres (::cough:: said Sergio ::cough::)

      • Laura Witrak August 20, 2013 at 6:55 pm #

        OMG – SO EXCITED! Blade Runner IS my favorite movie of all time. I almost fell off my chair laughing with the Roy Batty reference. Poor La Ramos. I think I may need a Blade Runner fix soon. I am going to photoshop Sese’s face onto Roy’s.

    *sergio wearing a cap* – now he looks like sergio ramos 🙂

    Mesut logo is standing for “Ö”, on his name Özil (oetzil), & his number “8” in german national team

    • headbandsandheartbreak August 3, 2013 at 3:33 pm #

      Hi rere – Welcome! I understand what the logo is representing – Mesut is my favorite player – I just don’t like the actual design. But it’s just a personal preference thing. I know some people really like it. As for me, I wouldn’t wear a logo that big on a shirt. It’s massive!
