So Does ‘Big Hugh’ Play In La Liga?

15 May

If anyone is going to be in Miami on June 23rd, you need to check out the World Soccer Masters match. Who is playing you may ask? How about Messi, Falcao, Diego Forlán, Didier Drogba, Dani Alves, Javier Mascherano, Luis Suárez, Edison Cavani, Jozy Altidore, Julio Cesar, Diego Milito, Materazzi, Lucio, Torrado, Diego Lugano and Alessandro Nesta to name just a few (more to be announced)? In our second unintentionally hilarious footy commercial of the week, Lil’ Leo falls prey to someone’s Ikerlish translation and tells us of a “big hugh” with a thumbs up. Whether he’s offering us a gran abrazo or announcing a special guest player remains to be seen. 😉

Adventures in Heat Stroke

25 Jul

I’m sure this brief round up will provoke the reaction “Aside from that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?” and for that I apologize in advance. I will say first and foremost, Non, je ne regrette rien – I’m glad I went to Philly and seeing my boo score his glorious goal about 50 feet in front of me was a thrill I’ll never forget.  And I got to have a wonderful time with my watishista! girls shiggers, J-9, DK, & Jess. So no matter what trials and tribulations happened, I am so damn glad I went on this road trip.

International Friendlies: Germany vs. Uruguay

Mario Gomez, hot as ever

I’ve got to confess, I haven’t had the chance to watch the match yet. I was at a bridal shower in the morning and then went to meet up with Shiggers while she was wedding dress shopping. Today, true love beat out footy. So there will be no match report, but just a few pictures that I managed to scare up.

It’s Official: Atleti Is SCREWED

24 May

Thanks to watishista! notoriousjk who had her eyes peeled for news while I was stuck in a two hour meeting about something so boring that I thought I was going to turn to stone. She gave me the heads up that my not-so-secret goalkeeper crush David De Gea is going to Manchester United. The papers have yet to be signed and it hasn’t been officially announced, but it’s been talked about for ages. The rest seems to be a formality. What is official is that next season, Atleti is going to be screwed. In addition to De Gea, departures are also reportedly coming up for Diego Forlan, Kun Aguero and coach Quique Sanchez Flores. That’s seriously going to cause some issues for our crosstown rivals.  I think it’s s a smart move on Man Utd’s part. De Gea is a great keeper and he’s only going to get better with experience in the Premier League. I’ll miss watching him.
