Tuesday In Melbourne

21 Jul

Satellite (3)Another driveby as I’m heading out to meet watishistas Shigs & ForzaSusan for a spot of dinner before the PSG/Fiorentina game tonight.

The team held their 10th training session today in Melbourne as they prepare for their match on Friday vs. Manchester City. The mothership would like you to know that Rafa is working them hard.

Cris, Toni, Sergio, Lukita, Pacheco, Lukas Vazquez, Pepe, Keylor, Denis and Marcos Llorente took part in an Audi Australia football clinic for 20 lucky Madridistas. Pepe, in particular seemed to be having a great time with the kiddies.

In other exciting news, RM unveiled a new 3 year partnership with EA Sports. The Baby, Danilo, Illara, Nacho and the Bond Villain were on hand for the festivities (along with a dude who looked like either Gaspard Ulliel in Saint Laurent or Colin Firth in A Single Man). The guys got to play FIFA 16. There’s a cool little video that shows how they create the players images for the game.

Speaking of FIFA 16, I love the Alex Morgan cover and how Men In Blazers referred to Messi as “Argentinian Megan Rapinoe.” That made my day.

Oh and the Evil Bunny Bus got personalized. That photo of Marcelo is unintentionally hilarious. He looks like he’s side eyeing both the Adidas and Real Madrid logos.

And now I must run! Zlatan waits for no woman.

    The Bond Villian – I’ve never seen him referred to as that before but I knew exactly who you were indicating and I laughed cruelly for maybe a minute or two.

    Why “evil bunny bus”?

    Shortish-Long Gripe:
    I am so ready for the new season to begin. I’m even more ready for the transfer window to [cursing explicative] close. If they shovel out money for DDG when they can get him for free next year and hand off the most fashionably entertaining player in the squad in exchange I’m going to lose my [cursing explicative]. This transfer window has me more disquiet than usual. The loss of Iker was a hard pill to swallow, because it left an entire position without quality -for me Keylor does not have it. I think I’m still in denial and expect that Iker will walk out tightening his gloves on MD1.

      Not sure when we started calling it the Evil Bunny Bus, but one day, Real Madrid got a new bus and it had this new style side view mirrors that hang down like floppy bunny ears…and because the bus what white, we named it the Evil Bunny Bus or EBB and the name has stuck in our circles ever since.

        This should be added to the glossary, right, Lozil? When you have the chance…
