Thursday Night (Now Early Friday Morning) Bits & Bobs

28 Jun

2539b724df3411e2acc922000ae81df1_7Excuse my lazy ass mood. I got home after 9 PM again tonight and I was just chillin’  and giggling over Sergio calling Jesus Navas “my little bird” on Twitter. WTF, Sese? Don’t ever change.

Here is a quick sweep of bits & bobs with more tomorrow. So, this is one ‘baller’s elementary school photo. Who might it be? Hint: Shigs is running in the other direction. Continue reading

The boys look like they’re ready to go, go, git ’em, git ’em, in their semifinal tomorrow! I wanna know who’s going to start, who’s going to score, and who’s going to win. You won’t find any answers to those questions within this post, but you will see lots of Sergio’s sweaty thighs & a couple boys struggling to recover from the sight…

Confederations Cup: Nigeria vs Spain

26 Jun

I tell ya, with all the Sernando action this match brought, I almost wouldn’t have minded if La Roja didn’t make it to the Semifinals. They did make it though, beating Nigeria 3-0. I was actually surprised Spain didn’t concede a goal or two, not only because it was Valdes it goal (I keed, I keed) but because Nigeria was showing some major spunk. They broke through Spain’s defense quite a few times and their shots were just off, not enough finish to make it happen. La Roja just keep chugging along, moving through the tournament, having no problem finishing off their goals. Yay for Nando, his scoring continues! His goal and Jordi Alba’s brace were enough to send Spain through to the Semifinals, where they’ll face Italy. The Italian NT say it won’t be a repeat of the Euro final…..I’m excited to see how the match turns out and we don’t have to much longer to wait, just 24 hours or so. 😉

Sometimes they multitask! Trainin’ and bromancin’ at the same time, we lurve it! There was a lack of Sernandoliciousness at the start of this tournament, but now the bromance is flowin’. Maybe Nando just needed to score in order to make all things right with his boo….I’m sure the goals helped too. 😉

Confederations Cup: Spain vs Tahiti

FBL-WC2014-CONFED-ESP-TAH-SQUAD

Before I get even farther behind on the match recaps, here is the Tahiti (which my fingers keep wanting to type as Tahini) post. Following the game, I felt pretty bad for Tahiti. 10-0 isn’t a fun score, but apparently the coach & team were just so overjoyed to have qualified for the Confeds, nothing could get them down. Coach Eddy Etaeta, said he was moved to tears during the team’s opening match, he was so proud of them, even though they were defeated 6-1. He also said, playing against Spain would be a dream. It’s nice to see the coach and team remain so proud to represent their country, even though the outcomes weren’t ideal. Spain did them in, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 times, so needless to say there are a lot of goals to look at and I won’t make this post even longer by going on & on. The goals shall speak for themselves…..mostly.
