Prepping For Getafe

22 Apr

Yes, I still exist! And I still watch football! I’m just in the middle of school and job hunting and freelancing and shit has been mad challenging for awhile. I don’t have any help here at the moment so I just can’t keep up. But whatever, that’s my drama, not your’s so how about that Benz hat trick? Very nice indeed. The team signed the ball (shirtless in many cases, thanks for the video RM!) and said that he was going to give it to Melia. Aw! Continue reading

Rest In Peace: Agustín Herrerín

18 Apr

Sad news today. Agustín Herrerín, the long time stadium delegate for Real Madrid, has passed away at age 84.  Adored by players, staff and fans, he had been involved with the club for over 50 years. Castilla observed a moment of silence before their match today and many players, past and present, took to social media to share their feelings.  The club posted a lovely tribute video as well. I got so misty watching it.  I will miss seeing him pitch side, greeting the players. Rest in peace, Agustín.

Mazel Tov Krashlyn!

20 Mar

I mean, if we weren’t already pretty damn sure, this post from their vacation to Grenada would have settled things, right? But Ali Krieger and Ashlyn Harris finally confirmed that Krashlyn is indeed a thing and they are engaged! Very exciting news. Ash gave a very frank interview about why they were quiet for so long. You can roll down memory lane when they were a Drool back in 2015 and enjoy years of Krashlyn love.

I could not be happier for them. I wonder if their doggie Logan will be the flower girl?

20 Mar

I’ve been consumed with work and a course I am taking and I was just so sad about how things had been going that I haven’t updated in a while. However, the return of Zizou was hugely helpful to my psyche (and probably that of most Madridistas). Continue reading
