A Long Time Coming…

24 Jun


People, indulge me for just a minute (well, as you always do). Something really monumental just happened in New York and I’m sitting here bawling my eyes out. Finally, FINALLY, my state legalized same sex marriage. It has been a battle from start to finish and I can’t believe it’s finally happened. It really came down to the wire: the last day of legislative session and the vote went down 33-29. As I’ve mentioned, I’m away this weekend at a wedding and it’s an added joy to know that now ALL my friends who want to get married will be able to. I’m going to go fucking broke buying wedding gifts and I couldn’t be happier about it.  This just means so much to me, I can’t even tell you. I’m so emotional right now. I’m going to have a drink to celebrate.  I wish I was in NYC tonight because on top of everything else, it’s Pride Weekend and the city must be going absolutely nuts right now.

(Thanks to watishista! notoriusjk who sent me the gorgeous shot of the Empire State Building lit up in rainbow colors – it’s so beautiful!)

Overnight Roundup Of Hotness

4 Jun

Hi folks – this is a super quick and dirty round up as I’m about to head off for Boston! I woke up to find a bunch more training shots. This first one is from the Sernando LJ community. The second is from ramos_fans LJ. Credits for the rest are ILoveRealMadrid, SR4ever ad rain-s-child. Rain-s-child also has some great Nando pix here and his interview here.  Enjoy! I’ll update when I can. Off to get Shiggers and start the road trip!

“Yo, Shiggers! I want your fine arse in Boston ASAP!”

Iker’s got Facebook fever again and I love him for it. He posted a ton of pictures from his Campus de fútbol Iker Casillas in Mostoles and here are just a couple…

Real Men Aren’t Afraid To Kiss Other Men When They Score

1 Jun

Sorry to bombard you with content today, but there’s so much going on! Scruby from one of our fave sites, Red Card Homophobia posted this piece over on ONTD_Football and I thought it was worth sharing.  It was Google Translated from this article so it may be a bit off (any of our lovely Spanish speakers want to have a go at translating the article?) but the gist of it is as follows…

Ouch And Hooray!

22 May

That picture kinda says it all, doesn’t it? Ronaldo triumphs and Almeria is deader than a doornail. The “ouch” is for both me and Almeria. I threw out my back this morning and I’m in quite a bit of pain (as I imagine the relegated Almeria is tonight. My condolences). I’m just trying to stay resting quietly until I go to my acupuncturist tomorrow morning.  I hobbled on down to the pub to watch our boys play the last match of the season and Crissy break the La Liga scoring record. I wasn’t disappointed!

Copa Del Rey Presented To Madrid

11 May

The whole team was present today in order to present the CDR to the people of Madrid. The first stop was to meet with Mayor Ruiz Gallardon at City Hall. The players went out on the balcony to greet fans. I love how Sergio is warily looking down and that he (or Iker) has a tight grip on the cup. After City Hall, team moved on to the the headquarters of the Government of Madrid and were greeted by its President, Esperanza Aguirre. They finished their tour at Madrid Cathedral, where they offered the CDR to the Virgin of Almudena after meeting with Cardinal Rouco Varela. Some pictures after the jump…

Ain’t No Party Like An East Coast Party…

7 May


So picture this scene… I’m sitting around the laundromat (hey, those jerseys and lacy unmentionables don’t wash themselves) and I see a comment pop in on my Blackberry. I open it, read and gasp so loud that the bored half asleep man reading the paper next to me jerks awake. I apologized for scaring him and went outside to squee. I didn’t have time to read una this morning, but luckily wa-tishista! mumblo did and delurked to share some good news that was on una’s blog!  REAL MADRID IS PLAYING PHILADELPHIA UNION ON JULY 23! An East Coast date! WHOOOOOOOOOOO! As you can imagine the Brooklyn Sweaty Shanks Pena will be out in full force and we’re going to try like hell to drag Maisougio and her Daytwah Posse along for the ride! Mumblo, thank you. I need to name my first born child or next cat after you. More than likely the latter as I am a confirmed happy spinster. Can’t tame The Lozil, y’all!

(BTW, that’s a picture of Pipita and El Pirata signing autographs at the hotel in Sevilla. I wonder if they’ll bring Pirata? Am I going to have to rent a pudding Thunderdome in Philly? ::grabs the Yellow Pages::)

Now that all the footy boys are out, I’m throwing all my support behind (ahem) gorgeous rugger David Williams.  You really need to see the pictures after the jump…

Sernando Head ‘Splodeyness Part II

5 May

Remember last night? When my head exploded? Well, it did it againsukha4 over on Sernando found pictures of what the rings look like in closeup on Tumblr.


Am I the only one who thinks that they kinda resemble wedding rings?  (The rings are gorgeous, btw!)  Oh and as for the Elvish tattoos perhaps someone translated incorrectly and Nando’s really says “Sernando” instead of  “Fernando?” 😉 Ah, that would be bliss!

Head? Officially Exploded.

4 May

Okay, with the 80 million Sernando fangirls in this world (and that is a conservative estimate…), how on earth did we manage to miss THIS?

willywho posted the following pictures on Sernando (but the post is locked) and found it on Tumblr. Look at the rings, y’all! They are so….ahhhhh!
