I love the 2 guys with the Go Pro Hero cameras – that’s gonna be us, mygypsyspirit!

25 lucky contest winners took part in an Adidas-sponsored Samba Clinic with Arbeloa, Illara and Xabi Alonso. They toured the facilities, hit the pitch and then posed with the players.

Xabi teaches the kids his signature pose.

Xabi teaches the kids his signature pose aka How To Look Like A Boss 101.

Xabi apparently doesn’t do everything perfectly. I know this sounds like blasphemy, but check out this wink comparison from MGEF. It’s hilarious (make sure you read the tags). I was howling. No matter, Xabi, you’re still our GQMF.

    Okay, that was not the ‘samba clinic’ I was hoping for when I clicked the link! At least there was some Xabi hip action. 🙂

      HA! I didn’t even think about it, but yeah, that would have been much more fun. 🙂

    I loved that wink comparison. Xabi was funny, but Cris … Sexy as hell!

    So you’re saying I should request some football playing time at Valdebebas then? With the GoPro strapped to my head?
    Or will you be wearing it as you’re chasing Pirata down the beach in San Sebastian? 😉
