The End of An Era: Iker Casillas Retires

4 Aug

Yes, I have briefly crawled out from my rock and I hope to soon explain where I have been but for today, it’s all about Iker. Our beloved former Capi called time on a beautiful career. He will always be an icon for Madridistas. I miss his grandpa sweaters, copious tears, pre-game besos and the way he loved Real Madrid so damn much. We were lucky to have him. RM made an official statement full of love (I am side eyeing them a bit, though) and shared a great video – almost 8 minutes of Iker doing what he did best: saves, glorious saves.

Thank you, Iker. We love you.

San Iker Keeps On Winnin’ Them Awards

25 Oct

Our lovely & lovable Capi will accept the Prince of Asturias Award, jointly with Xavi Hernandez, tomorrow (today in Spain) in Oviedo. WOOT for San Iker!! Both Iker & Xavi won the award in 2010, after the World Cup. The jury for the award decided that the two should be presented with the honor, once again, because both players “symbolize the values of friendship and camaraderie that go far beyond the rivalry of their respective teams. Their sporting conduct is an example to young people. Both have achieved the top titles with their clubs and with the Spanish national team, they are an example of fair play which is admired by everyone and, together, they have shown a conciliatory attitude that has broken down the traditional barriers between players and fans.” ….so in short, does this mean Iker is Miss Congeniality? I do believe he’s got the most friendly eyes I’ve ever seen…, he must’ve been a puppy in his past life! 😉 Anyways, here is a little interview he gave today (yesterday?) about winning the award and his goals for the future.
