Going Back To Cali (And That Hair? I Don’t Think So)

21 Jul

Satellite (1)The team, joined by Xabi & Pepe, had their last training session before packing their headbands, Louis Vuitton washbags, murses and attendant Euro essentials (hair gel, Gucci belt buckles, etc.) and heading off to Los Angeles.

(Training Video)

Twenty players were chosen by Carletto to head out to the States.

Goalkeepers: Diego López, Jesús and Pacheco.
Defenders: Pepe, Carvajal, Coentrão, Arbeloa, Nacho, D. Llorente and Derik.
Midfielders: Bale, Xabi Alonso, Isco, Illarra, M. Llorente, Medrán, Lucas and Mascarell.
Forwards: Sobrino and De Tomás.

Poor Carlo. He looks traumatized to be spending the next 12+ hours in a plane with this bunch. It’s nice to see Xabi & Arbie reunited,  Coentrao’s smiling face and Nacho’s new beard BUT….the elephant in the room can’t be avoided any longer.

There’s a new hair horror in town and it’s on the head of Asier Illaramendi. (Did he not learn anything from Xabi?!) He has a…pelt…a landing strip and it’s disconcerting (especially when he’s standing next to G-Money & his headband).

Satellite (5)I’m really not a fan of this sort of look. All during the World Cup every time I saw Arturo Vidal’s hair, all I could think of was a lady going to her bikini waxer and saying “How’s about you do something fun and fancy? It’s my anniversary and I want to surprise my hubby!” SMH. So it’s a bummer to see Illara attempting something similar now. #TeamMerkin Sigh.

Anyhow, some of the other guys (Sergio, Iker, Cris, Modric) will be joining the team in LA later. We won’t be seeing Karim, The Baby, Sami, Marcelo or Angel in the US as they aren’t due back until August 5th.

The team will be staying at the Montage Beverly Hills. They normally stay at the Beverly Hills Hotel, but that’s the site of protests against the Sultan of Brunei, so they’re avoiding any controversy, which is undoubtedly for the best.  We’ve got enough of our own drama.

    Illarra’s hair is real horror. I would not have expected him to do something like that, it just is not his style at all.

      I hear that. In one of those pictures, Karim is just few blocks from my office. I had a shitfit when I saw it. If I wasn’t hobbling around with a cane, I’d be out scoping for him on my lunch break! 😉
