UPDATED: Bringing Home Big Ears, Family Love & Promises Kept

I’ve been watching the live feed of all the festivities and trying to catch up on the 8 bazillion pictures we need to post! Let’s start before the final…

The team had the support of their families & friends yesterday along with millions of Madridistas world wide.

And when they won, they brought family members (mostly the bebes) onto the pitch which I love.


The locker room was a time to pose and celebrate.

And on the way home, everyone was just giddy.

I’m sure many of us made promises to the universe that we said we would keep if only we could win La Decima. (And yes, my dear table mates, I do remember what I pledged and I got my eyes on y’all too!) The players were no exception. Luka Modric said he would cut off his hair (SOB! ANOTHER HEADBAND BITES THE DUST) and so he did!

BofoqWXCQAAWafJluka And Dani Carvajal promised to do a Reverse Ramos….

BogRRnQIEAEONxzXabi looks like he’s going to cry, doesn’t he? Good lord, I certainly hope that Dani chops that off tomorrow morning. We can only hope.

And it wouldn’t be Xabi if this didn’t happen:

I love these dorks! Onward to Cibeles…

    So much joy, and pride, and EVERYTHING for our boys! This post makes me smile.

    (and, wow, does Aitor look like Guti, you are so right on that…)

    ha. Before the game started I promised my new friends at the bar that I would get a tattoo of Ramos’ face if he scored… Guess it’s good I’ll probably never see them again 🙂

      LOL! 🙂 That’s brilliant!

        And to think that was BEFORE the game and the drinking started 🙂

    Lozil will be following through with her bet. And I will be following through on mine…

      And what did you bet?

      • mygypsyspirit May 27, 2014 at 5:08 am #

        That is, for now, a secret. But I’m expecting to have you guys hold both of us to it
