Memorial Day Bits & Bobs

27 May

943153_461596330598741_1161387953_nHope everyone in the US enjoyed their Memorial Day! I know I did. It was a beautiful sunny day and we had a fantastic view of the NY harbor from watishista DK’s roof deck. I’m sleepy from the heat and ready to get some sleep but first a few things…

First and most importantly, Robbie Rogers was subbed in for the last 13 minutes of the LA Galaxy’s 4-0 win over Seattle Sounders. In that moment, he became the first openly gay male to play in a major American professional sport. He was greeted with a standing ovation. I am so incredibly pleased for him. There’s a fan support page for him on Facebook if you want to go and send a little note of encouragement. Continue reading

A Friendly 2-0

They succeeded in the end, with the subs at halftime making the major difference. With two more friendlies to go, the boys have got two weeks to get the Spanish machine running perfectly!

UPDATED: La Roja Boys, Boys, Boys!

21 May

To Las Rozas, the boys go! International duty begins today, as it’s time for La Roja to prepare for their upcoming friendlies against Serbia (I almost wrote Sergio, why did I have to open up with this pic?!) on the 26th, and South Korea on the 30th. Some very happy news? Tormata will join the group on the 25th! Well, maybe it’s not so happy news for Sergio…but maybe if he ditches that awful red jacket, that even his hair is trying to get away from, Nando will only have eyes for Sese. Continue reading
