Adios La Liga, Until Next Year

19 May

Adios to bromantic gestures like this one too? Say it ain’t so! The bromances are pretty much all I’m going to miss about La Liga for a while, especially after our last couple performances. It’ll be nice not having to stress over & calculate points/positions for a while, won’t it? Thank you boys for finishing off on a good note, with a WIN! Continue reading

Oh, La Liga *Sigh*

Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos reacts after missing a opportunity to score against Valladolid during their Spanish First Division soccer match at Zorrilla Stadium in Valladolid

Is it possible to be a hopeful and ever supportive fan while still hating all the “it’s still mathematically possible” talk? I actually wish it weren’t mathematically possible so we could focus 100% on the Champions League final. I want that. So can we just get all Queen Elsa on this bitch of a La Liga title race and LET IT GOOOOOOOOOOOO?

Well…It’s Still Mathematically Possible

Luckily, roadtripping prevented me from catching this match, so I was spared the heart attack but not the heartache. An Atletico loss is just what we needed and we failed to take advantage. Thanks to the spectacular, last minute goal from Cristiano, we came away with a point instead of none. $#@!$@!%#&! I want off this crazy La Liga roller coaster, my emotions can’t deal!

GAHHH! One nerve wracking semifinal match down, one more to go….except next week, the nerves and emotions will be even crazier! You’ve got to give it up for our boys though, they didn’t score as much as they could have, but they held Bayern well and prevented them from getting any precious away goals. Hey defense, can you say “On FIYAH“??

Final Whistle Means Party Time a.k.a Drunk Xabi Time

19 Apr

I love that once the title is secured, we know exactly what to expect next….locker room dancing, heavily gif’d shenanigans (bless the giffers!), and DRUNK XABI. A win just wouldn’t be the same without the latter!

Goals and points, baby, goals and points. These guys went up against Almeria knowing that Barca had just slipped up and we had the opportunity to skip right past them….which we did! We’ve one upped them by one point, but hey we’re nearing the end and one point can mean all the difference. Now we just need Atleti to slip up. The more times the better!
