Thumbs up in stereo

Well, the week has flown by and the team is already in Sofia (for the first time in 35 years)! I’ve been in the midst of a couple of work-related all nighters with a couple of more to come so I’m going to try to get a bunch of posts up tonight (the watishista correspondents have been taking up the slack and producing some goodies).  So this is a very quick and dirty catch up.

Hanging Out In Doha

Dude, I am so sure Xabi LOVED that.

Dude, I am so sure Xabi LOVED that. I can tell by his face.

Greetings from snowy New York where we’re at the start of what is apparently a blizzard. The wind is howling and the snow is swirling. Good times fun! Got up to watch the match this morning and see our bebe Jese score the first goal of 2014 (he also had the last RM goal of 2013)! Start as you mean to go on, Jese! While they were in Qatar, they visited the Aspire Academy for Sports Excellence. Continue reading

Some things never change.

Some things never change.

They say “Start as you mean to go on” so I guess we have another year of Karim Benzema: Forever Alone to look forward to. Actually, I’m sure if The Baby was called up, they would have been sitting together. Varane isn’t the only one not making the trip to Qatar, however. Sami & Fabio are still in recovery and Gareth is being rested. Iker stayed home to await San Baby (He’s waited how long? He’s not going anywhere till he has that kid in his arms and probably not very far after. I can totally imagine him giving everything up and becoming a house husband once he finally gets his woobins). Continue reading
