Recovery, Edith Extends & Ice Buckets Galore

20 Aug

Satellite (6)The team had a recovery session today before they get back into preparing for Friday’s second leg of the Super Copa.

9 of the 10 field starters worked out inside. Pepe came out for a little jog about. (Training Video)

In happy news, Man Edith has extended his contract to 2018! Hopefully, that will give him enough time to grow his hair back and start wearing a headband again. (A girl can dream).

“My dream continues with my renewal”, stated Real Madrid’s midfielder. (Video)

Luka Modric spoke of his satisfaction after renewing with Real Madrid. “I’m very happy, today is an important day for me. I’d like to thank the club and president Florentino Pérez for the confidence they have placed in me. I would like to return that confidence by giving my best in the coming years”, he said to and Realmadrid TV after the recovery session completed by the Whites.

“When I came to Real Madrid, all my dreams came true. These years have been magnificent, I have enjoyed every moment and I’ve had fun. In the coming years I’m going to give even more. My dream continues with my renewal. I hope we can win many more titles in the years to come”.

Grateful to the fans
“From the first moment I felt affection from the stands. I can only say thank you very much to the supporters. I am going to give my best in every match so that they feel proud of me”.

His debut
“When I arrived here two years ago, we won the Supercup of Spain. It was my first match. Hopefully we can win another Supercup in Atlético’s ground. I’m feeling really confident and it would be very significant to start the season by winning another title after the European Super Cup. We’re going to give our all to bring more satisfaction to the club”.

Everyone is getting in on the ice bucket challenge craze. Sergio did it shirtless (Gracias!) while nominating Antonio Banderas (eh?), Nando & the Mister. Cheeky. He just wants to see Nando all hot and wet. I see what you’re doing there, Sergio!

Iker got his ice bucket on and nominated G-Money, Dani Martin & King Bitchface von Sex Beard.

Our beloved King Muppet Baby Morata did the challenge at Juve, nominating his girlfriend, his brother and singer Nicolas Mayorca.

A few others: Mesut nominated his girlfriend Mandy Capristo, Rihanna & Derrick Rose.

Mario Götze nominated his boo, Marco Reus…

…who in turn nominated Mats Hummels, who had dumped the water on him.

One of my favorites was Pique and Shakira. She nominated Chris Martin and, erm, the Pope while Pique chose Sergio Ramos (!!), Cesc (expected) and MotoGP racer Marc Marquez.

Shakira squeals as she gets drenched, but Gerard starts howling like a banshee even before the tiny pan of water is dumped over his head. He should have saved it for when Shakira accidentally smacked him in the face with the pan afterwards. To his credit, he did not start bleeding.

I love seeing how big the ice “bucket” each person chooses is. They range from a trash can (Morata), multiple (Cristiano) to a relatively small stockpot (Pique).

By the time Zlatan accepts his challenge, he’s going to withstand a firehose of ice water directly from Antarctica for an hour just to prove how Zlatan he is.

I look forward to that.
