Saw this today on unamadridista and couldn’t resist re-posting it due to the hilarity. I needed a giggle after a night of doing research until my eyes crossed. Anyhow, as you can see, Real Madrid is not the only club that has photographers that enjoy torturing players. Here our guys pose with Herthinho, who is the mascot of Hertha Berlin. Mesut’s rocking his mono face (or he’s terrified), Mou looks like he’s been stunned by a blunt object, Iker has lost the will to live and Cris, bless him, well, he’s just up for anything that allows him to put a thumb up and grin.  You know that El Pirata took one look at this scenario and said “Fuck that shit, I’m outta here. If I pose with a giant bear and a thumbs up, no one will ever take my sensitive indie rock YouTube recommendations seriously again.” and then he curled up with some Dylan on his iPod while reading Infinite Jest for the 50th time.  Poor Herthinho, you deserve better. Next time we’ll get Marcelo and Pepe in there, they know how to bring the fun.
