El Pirata In Rolling Stone

17 May

Esteban Rolling StoneMan, I feel like I’m just playing catch up these days! I have so much to post and so little time.

Esteban was interviewed in Rolling Stone a few days ago. I was hoping someone would get around to fully translating it before I had a chance to post it. Lo and behold, my prayers were answered! Continue reading

tumblr_mqug5o9yZs1qbpdiyo1_500Lordy, I have so many bits & bobs, I don’t even have a clue where to start. Ugh. How’s about I just begin with our boys? Here’s Iker (or rather Geeker from the looks of it) with a fan. Our intrepid capi also posted a  shot of his good friend Roy Batty from Blade Runner who was enjoying some LA poolside tanning.  Continue reading

You better take off your clothes a lot this summer. Just sayin’

There is no other explanation for him showing up with that shitshow of a hairdo. Xabi Alonso is off screen vomiting into a trash can. Sese, why you wanna ruin The Pretty?! ::shudder::

Pre-Season Portraits: El Pirata

8 Jul

pirataThanks to watishista Bre for finding this shot of El Pirata by his QPR teammate (currently on loan to Palermo) Alejandro Faurlin. Looking through Ale’s pix, it seems like he’s a guitar player as well. The Hoops have started their pre-season and Esteban is currently with ’em. I wonder what the transfer window will hold for our lovely pirate? In addition to the guitar and mandals, I’m enjoying the box of All-Bran on the dresser. Total hippie, our ElP but hey, at least he’s getting his fiber, right? He’s got other,  more important, things to think about (LIKE COMING HOME). Ahem. As you were.

13 May


Why is the last day in the office before vacation always a nightmare of epic proportions?!

Anyhow, Here’s a quick and dirty catch up post.

The team did their first training to prepare for the Copa Del Rey final on Friday. Sami was back to training intensely, Pipa was inside while Sese, Mesut & Marcelo continued with their recovery. Continue reading
