Mexico NT Fans Are Not Afraid

18 Nov

For those of us who tuned into the Mexico vs Netherlands friendly last week, we saw a bit of a different look to the Mexico section of the Amsterdam Arena. Rather than there being a sea of green, white, and red, this section was predominantly marked in black. Why, you ask? Continue reading

Last Training Of The Week

11 Oct


The team (well, the few of them that are left in Madrid) had their last training of the week. The 16 internationals are in the midst of their matches. The Baby played a full 90 today in France’s 6-0 thrashing of Australia and appears to not be broken in any way. Whew! Continue reading

Let me tell you, never and I mean never lose track of posting when ya boys are on international duty! It’s not healthy to let your La Roja coverage get backed up, you’ve got to ogle freely & share the goods. Instead of game watching & fangirling I was house hunting, it was not fun -__- but all the La Roja treats we missed have been compiled into one longggggggggg & pretty post. Get ready for lots of Sese.

La Roja Has Landed

12 Aug

BRfs22wCEAAehtvLa Roja landed in Guayaquil about an hour ago. It’s nice to see that Sefutbol has still not invested in anything more than a point and shoot camera (with vaseline on the lens, methinks) or maybe they’re just taking the shots with someone’s circa 2007 Blackberry Pearl, because…WOW.  Continue reading

USA! USA! USA!

b532da5ad5b011e2808622000a1f9aaf_7Sorry for the lack of updates today. Work has been…difficult. Anyhow, I’m off to see the USWNT play South Korea shortly with watishistas Shigs, forzasusan and J9. Totally psyched for the game and sorely in need of some girlfriends, footy & beer time after an awful hectic week. I’ll be the one in the USA shirt in the 7th row by the corner flag yelling “ABBBBBBBBBBBYYYYYY!” Look for me on TV. 😉

Ooops! Spain Vs. Ireland Tickets On Sale

26 May

spain v irelandHey everyone – I am so incredibly sorry. The unbundled Spain vs. Ireland tickets for Yankees Stadium went on sale while I was in Mexico and it’s not until watishista Rose mentioned it in the comments that I realized I had never checked back on this or posted on it. Watishista P is a Yankees season ticket holder so she snagged us some in a pre-sale but I never got any notice that they were going on sale to the public and I just lost track of everything while I was on vacation. Looks like plenty of tickets are still available.
