Prepping For Valencia, Muppet Babies Making Bad Choices & 3 Who Get It Absolutely Right

19 Dec
I see they're already trying to get used to wearing pink.

I see they’re already trying to get used to wearing pink.

Sigh. I thought work was supposed to be calming down for me, but apparently not. I think they’re hell bent on working me 24/7 right up until tomorrow at 3 PM when I start my vacation. Sigh. The team began preparing for Sunday’s match against Valencia. The last match of 2013! The starters from the Copa Del Rey match trained indoors with The Baby while everyone else got to play outside in the rain.

Castilla and Real Madrid C had their Christmas drinks party (Are they old enough to drink?!) so it was boozed up Muppet Babies as far as the eye could see. I don’t mean to be rude (okay, maybe) but what subterranean venue did they have this party in? It’s got all the charm of a UStorIt facility. I expect someone to roll by with a cart filled with boxes labeled “Kitchen Stuff” covered in duct tape. Maybe it looks better in person than in pictures (let’s hope).

I spy with my little eye someone who considers Sergio Ramos a fashion role model.

Bleached hair? Check. Denim shirt buttoned up to the tippy top? Check. God, I wish I could see his jeans and shoes…OR DO I? Someone save the child from himself.

Three gentlemen who handled Christmas party fashion much better were   Gigi Buffon, Fernando Llorente & Andrea Pirlo of Juventus. Can you excuse me while I just swoon a minute right here? Three of my faves all in one picture. In suits. Heck, Pirlo even has a wee smile.  I wonder if Davide the goat is just out of camera range?

    I have to admit, it took a while to finish drooling over the pic before I sent it. HELLO Gigi!!

    Gigi and the Lion King and Bearded Pirlo, oh my! Totally agree that the Juve party looks more interesting, at the very least more festive.

    I spy hotness among the muppet babies, which bothers me a bit. I really shouldn’t be thinking that way about anyone who’s young enough to have homework!

    God, Gigi Buffon is just effortlessly more cool than the rest of the universe.

      Yes he is… he probably does everything well and effortlessly.
