Well That Escalated Quickly

19 Aug

Screen-Shot-2014-08-18-at-164532Puma has egg all over its face after a marketing stunt went wrong today (well yesterday now because I didn’t post this before midnight). Followers were asked to tweet a specific hashtag to get a “personalized” response from a footballer. (The USMNT did something similar during the World Cup for supporters, but it was much more generic and very tame). Well, it didn’t take long for Twitter users to find a way to take the piss.

UPDATED: Werk It, Grrrl!

Real Madrid's soccer player Bale cools off with a fan as he watches the match between Nadal of Spain and Berdych of the Czech Republic at the Madrid Open tennis tournamentG-Money is settling comfortably into the Euro-metrosexual vibe of Real Madrid, I see. He’s taking some fashion cues from Cristiano – the aviators, slicked back hair, crisp white shirt… But that fan? That’s straight up Brooklyn Sweaty Shanks Peña  action.  We are known for our fans, which we carry with us at all times during the summer months. I have pictures of us from World Cup 2010 and it’s just a table full of fans. Thanks for the shout out, Gareth. You’re welcome at our table any time.  Continue reading

Training, More Tennis, Men’s Health Finds 2 New Cover Boys & More

10 May

Sorry about the earlier double post. That’s what happens when you have two people in different cities working on the same blog. I had an open post that I hadn’t saved so Maisougio couldn’t see mine and I didn’t see her’s until after I hit ‘publish.’ So you got the happy news twice! This is going to be another quickie as a work project just rolled in.

Requiem For A Sex Beard Part II (And Hopefully Not For A Booty), Tennis & Visitors

9 May

Entrenamiento_Real_Madrid (14)This close up of Arbeloa from today made me really miss his sex beard but he still looks fab.

I’ve been up to my neck in work all day and I’m feeling like hell. My allergies are going berserk so all apologies that this is another drive by. Arbie and Sami trained apart from the rest of the team and young Diego Llorente joined the big boys. Continue reading

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. 😉
