El Clásico In Miami

10 Mar

Real Madrid & ICC finally confirmed the rumored El Clásico in Miami this summer! The match will take place on Saturday, July 29 at the Hard Rock Stadium. Ticket pre-sale begins March 16 at 10 AM ET.  Having been to the Clásico in Madrid with mygypsyspirit, I can tell you that it has a very special atmosphere and energy.

Golazos Then On To New York

31 Jul

13872853_10151069853749953_6804043645750387446_nMuch better result versus Chelsea (although a bit too close of a score for my tastes) in Michigan!


Captain Marcelo scored a brace and got Man of the Match to boot! And Mariano scored a stonker. Three lovely goals!

The team then headed right for New York where they were greeted by the fans. I’m sure that the hotel guests just loved hearing someone outside their window at the JW Marriott Essex House yelling “JAMMMMMMMMMESSSSSSSS!” in the middle of the night.


And I can imagine that the some of the guests might have also been surprised to head to the gym for a workout only to find it occupied by Sese, Benz, Lukita, Llorente, Isco and the aforementioned JAMMMMMMMMMESSSSSSSS! I would be torn between slinking back to my room rather than work out next to world class athletes and pretending that I had dropped my earring and searching the entire gym for an hour or so, watching their every move. Luckily for them (and me), this is not a decision I will have to make.

The team has already started their siteseeing as they are posting shots from the Empire State Building.
