Copa Del Rey 2014UPDATED: Hooray! They finally posted the video on YouTube so we can embed it after the jump! Seriously, people, RUN (do not walk) over to the mothership and watch the fantastic nearly hour long video En el Corazón de la Copa which shows our journey on the day of the final. It’s just fantastic. If you weren’t already ass over teakettle in love with this team, you will be after watching it. There are so many fantastic dorky moments.  Continue reading

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!

We….did….IT!!!!! Faq, it feels good to have a trophy again, doesn’t it?? I still don’t think it’s sunk in for me yet. Not that I didn’t think the boys could do it, they just stir up a whirlwind of emotions & it takes time for me to process all the cray! And by cray I mean watching the celebrations, anticipating a Copa accident, and then being slightly disappointed that the thing made it out alive… But shit….now that we have one, let’s go for a fuckin’ clean sweep. The treble, boys, THE TREBLE!

A Derby Done Right

7 Feb


Tell me, can you really have a bad week when your boys kick Atleti ass in the middle of it? No, I don’t think so! Everytime I look through these match pics, I still get the urge to pump my fist in the air in honor of our victory….and then I think of Diego Costa and those first pumps turn into jabs and hooks. Aside from the bouts of hostility from both sides (Arbie, please refrain from foot stomping), our boys left us with a performance we can be proud of and Atleti is going to have a hard time trying to outdo us in the 2nd leg!

We’ve Got Our Spot in the Quarter Finals!

17 Jan


Another 2-0 score? Our boys must’ve thought it’d be cute to get matchy matchy with their first and second leg matches against Osasuna. Hey, it’s good for us, not so much for them. Another win and another clean sheet put us in the Quarter finals, but not without a little drama…Osasuna wasn’t bringing it so we had to go and provide some ourselves…
