When Gareth Met Crispy And Other Tales

12 Sep

tumblr_msynsnd0M91sbj3p3o1_1280Gareth arrived for his first real day of work yesterday looking for all the world like a schoolboy starting freshman year. Backwards cap? Check. Backpack? Check. Except it all probably cost bank.

And who was the first person that he ran into? Big Man On Campus (and his personal idol) Cristiano Ronaldo, who greeted him in the parking lot.

"OMG! You're even more orange in person!"

GB:”OMG! You’re even more orange in person!” CR7: “Oh you’re too kind!”

Gareth and Crispy headed on in and then our New Guy met the Mister along with the rest of the coaching staff.

Then it was time to get down to work. Gareth took to the pitch with Iker, Carvajal, Nacho, Lady Edith, Benz, Morata, Jese and Castilla’s Jose Rodriguez. Crispy and Isco (aka Crisco) worked together with the ball. The Baby trained alone. Sese, Arbie and Sami worked out in the gym. Xabi & Marcelo were treated inside. Pepe, Fabio & Angel were still off on international duty having just played Tuesday in Boston & Paraguay.

All eyes were on Gareth. He hung out with his former Spurs teammate Luka and seemed completely chuffed to be there. You gotta appreciate the enthusiasm. After training he posted a shot with Lady Edith and Sergio. Sese also posted a shot calling Gareth a “beast” I can’t believe Modric is wearing an Urkel shirt. ::headdesk::

Real Madrid & Adidas will debut the team’s third kit today in a ceremony that starts at 1:30 PM CET. Several members of the first team will be present. More on that later today.

Isco replaced Pipita in the Nivea for Men campaign and now we have two new commercials to ogle over.

PS I can’t believe I forgot to squee over seeing Mori in the commercial!

Well, that’s all for right now – more later! (Additional photos from GF Sports, Football-hqs, and RealMadridTV.

    Bale needs to sort the hair out. He’s cute but he looks like he’s got feathers coming out the back. Not good.

    The boys look good in the Nivea commercial (dressed normally).

      It’s weird how it does work from certain angles, but then he turns his head but slightly and it’s like “WHOA!”

      But don’t let it distract you! Bale’s new. He can still be taught. Benz, on the other hand, is persistent about making that … “style”(??) work. THAT is a more worrying issue XD

      So with you on this one. Bale’s sideline shave is a bit weird. And *sigh* why does La Ramos have to have such a sexy body, face AND voice.

    I can´t believe I DIDN´T notice the Urkel shirt until you pointed it out. And speaking of shirts, does Cris purposefully wear them one size too small, or is he just that ridiculously ripped that NO SIZE can contain him XD

    Question: I know you guys are loyal madridistas, but seeing as Mesut’s still up there, will you be checking in on him every now and then over at Arsenal? Will there be pics of his first day training, for example? Pwetty please? 🙂

      Yeah, of course, we’ll be checking in with him and posting training pictures. He’s still my favorite player. That doesn’t change just because he left my team. We still keep track of Pipa, Calleti, Albio, El Pirata and many others who have headed off to other places.

      I just have to find time in between meetings to post!

      i, personally, do not find cris’ shirt to be too small. it is exactly the right size and probably cost more than my car.

    i really love luka’s urkel shirt. kills me!

    the nivea commercial is wonderful, SUCH ACTING!

    Great commercial! It must have been really hard to look at our Sunshine so seriously. I wonder how many times they messed up.

    I’m very happy that players welcomed Gareth, after Mesut transfer I was worried about it! 🙂

    I’m too busy fangirling over Morientes right now to comment on the rest of the post. I think I had something, but I forgot…

    Ay! I could watch that Nivea commercial over and over and over again. Gracias! 🙂
