It wouldn’t be Madrid if there wasn’t a manpile

The team had their last training of the year today and it was open to members. People traveled from as far away as France, Italy and Portugal to see the boys in action.

Marcelo and Casanova being their adorable selves.

I thought I saw a hint of beard on Karim the other day. I was hoping it was just scruff, but no, it looks like he’s actively attempting to grow that shit. God help us all.

Xabi has chosen to start 2014 off clean shaven & elegant.

Aw! Baby Love!

One of the many reasons we're called Team Pretty.

Mmmm, Xabi's tongue! (Do his knees look weird to you?)

When they were done training, the team applauded the fans. They also threw shirts & balls and signed autographs.

Love the kid on the left. He looks like a side eyeing Xabi.

And this kid

And this kid on the left is a future player. Get that thumb up, boy!

Hope everyone is gearing up for a fun New Year’s Eve. I’m still pretty sick so I’m tucked into bed. No partying for me tonight! I’m going to make some dinner and then will try to get in a another post or two before midnight. I apologize that I didn’t get the mailbox cleared out before the end of the year. Didn’t expect to spend my entire vacation with bronchitis. Bah humbug! Anyhow, let’s hope 2014 is better all around. (Additional photos via GF Sports and Madridismo.org)

    Maybe side eyeing mini Xabi was, in fact, side eyeing Xabi and his new clean-shaven look. Or better yet, Benzema’s attempts to pick up the slack in that department. 🙂

    Sorry to hear you’re still under the weather; hopefully you have lots of movies et al to at least keep you entertained!
