All You Need is One

29 Aug


Yes sir! One goal from Benz and we took the three points away from Granada. You can tell Benz is just loving life right now, “I score ze goals and ze peeple love me. Allo peeple!” I won’t take away from his moment and talk about how he can make us even happier….at least not just yet. 🙂

Comin’ at ya with the pre-game action…this chick must’ve had some kind of, freakin awesome, all access pass because she got to meet everyone. How does one make this happen?? Inquiring Watishistas want to know!

I get that the RM photogs need to capture certain pre-game moments, but they need to leave San Iker alone or else he’s going to get very un-saintly with them.

“I will cut a bitch.”



Our beautiful boys in blue! That goes for everyone except Benz, you can’t look like a before & after pic morphed into one and be considered beautiful. Nuh uh. I don’t like it when the boys make me be mean to them. If they only knew how simple it is to keep us happy. *sigh* Benz, I just had a croissant in honor of what used to be….


Sergio had his captain’s thang goin’ on once again, leadership looks good on the man! You know what else looks good? Referee Estrada Fernadez. Hey now. Oh and notice the assistants names? Poor Lopez Lopez, I guess his parents were of the “Name so good, we use it twice” school of thought.


Whistle blows, clock starts, the guys were set on going for an early goal. A couple of chances were created by Di Maria & Benz, with our Frenchman being the one to score the opener. He’s liking the spotlight, he’s got to score to keep it! Work it Benz! Ten minutes in and we saw all the goals we were going to see.

“I’m a Benzeplane!”

Just as the second half kicked off, Captain Sergio knocked heads with Granada’s Riki. It’s always a little scary to see players go down, but both guys turned out fine & Sergio assured everyone he was ok.

“Nah dude, he didn’t break my pretty.”

He’s resilient! He got back in the game & did what he does.

 Taking out opponents.

And violating the ref’s personal space.

You gotta give it up for Cris, who tried for a goal until the very end.

We don’t like to see you so frustrated, Crissy, but we can understand the kind of pressure put on you…as you’ll see below.

“So I’ve got to pull off a Superman free kick, while these two get to bromance behind me? Greatttt.”

This time, one goal was enough to do it in Granada. Let’s hear it for our clean sheet, woot woot! Let’s hear it for shirtless Sergio, woot woot!

    Dear Karim,

    Great goal! I knew Fresh Benz would score early. Thanks for winning the match for us.

    You know that Victor-Victoria look you have going? It’s just a tad too Gemini Twins Separated at Birth for me. I was trying to be polite but, screw it! You look schizophrenic and I’m afraid the Mr. Hyde in you will overpower the Dr. Jekyll and you’ll go postal and attack all the refs with double identical names.

    And speaking of Lopez Lopez, dear Karim, if you ever have a daughter, please, please, please, don’t ever name her Mercedes.

      Ha! Mercedes Benzema……I know it’s bad, but it’s kind of cute.

    i was really digging the lilac kit on granada’s keeper. pretty color!

    cris’ face as he finishes his second league game without a goal. pobrecito. he just looks like he needs a big ole hug.

      I know, that face made me feel so bad. I heard a commentator yesterday say that it’s the Bale transfer drama that’s getting to him mentally and blah blah blah. Yeahhhh because if we get Bale, Cris is going to be on his way out, ok. Commentators really know how to say the dumbest things. It’s the lack of bromancing that’s hurting him, I tell you! 😉

        maybe they’ve forgotten how to bromance as the master has gone to napoli?

        clearly peezy loves his shiny new expensive toys, but he wants as many of them as possible. he wants his galacticos, damn it!

    a Sergio filled Friday morning….can there be anything better?

    • PhĂ©dre August 30, 2013 at 11:01 am #

      A Sese filled week, or month … or year!

      • Laura Witrak August 30, 2013 at 11:11 am #

        I second that.

  4. Phédre August 30, 2013 at 10:59 am #

    Smoking HOT in those blue kits! But ofcourse Sese even better without…
    Poor Cris, working so hard and no goals. Chin up, gorgeous, you’re still the best!
    Bezema’s cute little boy smile when he scores almost makes me forget his hair … but not really …

      Right? I want to see pretty Benz again, but watching matches with one eye closed & my thumb covering the right side of his head is too much to ask of me.

    I was howling at the background creeper official. Brilliant.
