La Roja, Day Two: Awards

5 Sep

Lots of awards to tell you about! First up, Marca presented La Roja with a series of awards today. The first being their Platinum Award. The group pictures either look like mug shots or attempting to wrangle cats, what with everyone looking in opposite directions. Continue reading

Cassano Fined By UEFA For Homophobic Comments

20 Jul


In a move that surprised and pleased me, the UEFA got their heads out of their arses long enough to fine Antonio Cassano for his homophobic remarks during a Euro 2012 presser. Continue reading

Bits & Bobs: Now We’re Cooking With Sass And Extra Added Peen, Apparently.

11 Jul

Sese tweeted a shot of himself cooking and said that he enjoyed his day on his friend’s farm. *I* enjoyed these half naked shots of him on the beach in Ibiza. Continue reading

Bits & Bobs: Schmoopfest, Vegas, Miami, Thailand, Poznan & PMS

9 Jul

Guti and Romina are apparently not in the same city right now, which cues endless schmoopy messages of love back and forth on Twitter. Gutes posted this piccy. They’re calling each other ‘mommy’ and ‘daddy,’ people. I may not survive this pregnancy.  Continue reading

Countdown To Ovary Detonation In Three…Two…One

7 Jul

Watishista April found this video with some new angles on the celebration. There’s tons of Nando, Leo & Nora (including where he uses his legendary booty as a dollie storage unit), more Enzo Cazorla, Sergio & Daniela and after a brief part showing the fans dancing, everyone on the planet finding the cheeks of Aitana Negredo irresistible (especially Iker). Also, anyone know who is the little boy that Albiol is carrying around? I’m assuming it’s his nephew. I saw a quick shot in an earlier video, but I can see the little boy much clearer in this video.

– Lozil

Iker, Sara, Murse = OT3

Iker, Sara and the ever present Murse had a nice dinner out in Madrid the other night and that’s the just start of the bits and bobs… (Wonder if the Murse got lonely over the last month? I don’t think he took it to the Euros).  Continue reading

Lifting the Trophy

Campeones de Europa!

5 Jul

Ah now y’all have seen the La Roja bebes, you’ve seen the boys get drunk on the bus, and you’ve seen Pepe’s show, well now we’re back to where it all began – the fab Euro 2012 final match! For me, throughout the tournament, La Roja just wasn’t wowing me. They struggled a bit to play their best or what we’re used to seeing, but I guess they were saving their juices for the final because they completely shined their brightest for those 90 min. They managed to dominate without boring us with non-stop passing, don’t get me wrong, they’re phenomenal at keeping possession but the attack is where all the excitement is, and they definitely brought it with the attack against Italy. No Euro Final has ever been won with a score of 4-o, Spain was the first to do it and each of their four goals was amazing. It was La Roja’s night to kick ass, win another title, and keep making history. Continue reading

Bebes In Motion

3 Jul

I’ve been meaning to post this video today which is chock full of adorableness. Enzo Carzorla, Sergio carrying Daniela, Nora Torres chasing the camera and the commentators cooing over the La Roja bebes. It’s super cute. (If the annoying annotations are on, click the quote bubble to turn them off). Continue reading
