Are You Ready?

24 May

Satellite (1)Yeah, neither am I, but the big day is upon us! The team did their stretchies atop the hotel and we were treated to more behind the scenes goodies.

The fly on the wall cam also went to training and the presser.

They searched out the source of the chants that were heard during training. Cristiano (and Pepe) must feel very loved.

There were also interviews with former Blancos Mijatovic, McManaman, Karembeu and Cannavaro.

Canna also visited the team, but you can check that out online for yourself. As you may or may not know, Cannavaro is a big ol’ homophobe and therefore is persona non-grata on this blog. (In addition to being against marriage equality, he said he wouldn’t want to share a locker room with a gay player – get over yourself, douchebag).

In better news, Iker made a little video urging the fans on. And  get this, KARIM BENZEMA HAS JOINED TWITTER! Oh boy, the selfies and fashion horror coming to you hot and fresh out the kitchen.  He’s verified, so it’s really Benz, baby!

And hey, we’ve got nothing to worry about because the legendary Real Madrid-mobile is already in Lisbon!

ARGH! Getting so damn nervous! Anyhow, time for me to go get some errands done before heading off to get settled in at my table at the pub. HALA MADRID! A POR LA DECIMA!

    I’m so nervous, I’m going to record the game and paint my nails instead. That’s the only think that can calm me down. If we win, I can watch the glorious victory again as much as I want and if we don’t … Well, that’s just not an option! My boyfriend thinks I’m crazy!

    I’ve been avidly following this blog for a year, but I had yet to get a wordpress account or make my presence known. After today. After physically being cradled by my mother while I sobbed into her chest at the 90th minute, I couldn’t not come here to say: HalaMad-frikken-rid. No really. Can you please never do that again. Also in honour of that Decima-saving goal I’m expanding my Sergio-Shrine.

    Sergio Ramos and Angel DiMaria deserves a pay raise after today.

    Why did they torture me for first 90 minutes???? Glad it is now done!!!! Where is drunk Xabi?????

    Our boys sure have a flair for the dramatic! I was having heart attacks for 93 minutes, ’til Sergio saved the day (especially for Iker) (sure didn’t want to see him be the goat) That BESO agradecio was felt around the world. So happy for them all, What a match!!!

    At 90′ I had just about given up and then Our Little Pony proved he is a Stallion and equalized! Then by 118′ I was steeling myself for a penalty shoot out and then Bam! Bam! Bam! 3 goals in 10 minutes! A golazo from Marcelo! What a dramatic finish! These guys are simply amazing!

    WE HAVE LA DECIMA!!!! We also got Crying Iker, Matador Sergio, Topless Cristiano, Drunk Xabi (Xabeer, someone said), Drunk Modric! Aaaahhhhh! And now, maybe Arbeloa will shave off that animal on his chin! And Iker, letting Sergio kiss La Cibeles! What a capi!

    CAMPEONES!!!!! Thank you, watishtas, for taking this gut-wrenching journey with me! Let’s celebrate!

      Thanks – we’re working on recaps and whatnot – we have a ton of pictures. But give us a bit of time – I’m barely awake yet and still hung over! 😉 We’ll get something up eventually.
