A Big Ol’ La Roja Pick-Me-Up

4 Sep

tumblr_mscg44Feqb1qf4zxao1_1280

With all the La Liga/transfer drama & sadness, International Duty couldn’t have come at a better time. Hopefully the magic of La Roja & their pretty pretty can drag us out of depression and mourning for a few moments. This is a big post with a lot of compiled shizz, so I aim to bring smiles to your faces at least once! Here we go, awful outfits, handsome faces, and singing…yes, singing.

Thursday Late Night Bits & Bobs

11 Jul

Nacho (1)How does this always happen? I get home from work late, eat dinner and then sit down to post – poof! – it’s close to 11 PM. I give up. Here’s a quick rundown.

First, congrats to Nacho who yesterday extended his contract with Real Madrid for an additional 4 years. Continue reading

Tuesday Bits & Bobs, Part II

10 Jul

tumblr_mpobkafY2p1rlnonjo1_400So, I’m teetering on the edge of exhaustion here, peeps. It’s been a long ass day. I’m going to catch up on things as quickly as I can. Please forgive me for my lack of, um, brains? typing? everything? At this point, I’m about to fall asleep on my feet.

First up is David Villa. Many of us were taken by surprise when his transfer to Atleti was announced. As for that bargain price, well, it’s not as bad as we thought. Continue reading

4th of July Bits & Bobs

4 Jul

859ef434e4bc11e287c922000ae904e6_7Toby Holden West donned his 4th of July finery and what better way to start this holiday post? For all of my fellow Americans, I hope you had a great day. Me? I had a day of epic sloth to make up for how chaotic things have been lately. I turned down every invite I got and spent the day enjoying some much needed alone time reading & watching movies. IT. WAS. BLISS. Back to work tomorrow though. Continue reading

Confederations Cup: Spain vs Italy

3 Jul

FBL-WC2014-CONFED-ESP-ITA

This is one of two last Confed Cup game recaps…..let’s categorize it as the only one where you’ll see Spain smiling, shall we? I have a love/hate relationship with penalty shootouts, maybe everyone does. It’s a little exciting when teams you don’t support have to go through them, but when it’s your team….nuh uh. Eyes get squeezed shut, hands to my face (fingernail-less hands I should add), and lots and lots of holding my breath whilst praying. But I’m getting ahead of myself, there was a whole 120 minutes of disappointment before that, it definitely wasn’t the Euro final redo I was expecting. Italy had all the attacking power, but lacked the luck to get any goals in and Spain had Iker & Italy’s inability to score going for them. In the end, it was the little bird that had us saying “Thank you, Jesus!”

A Quiet Day for the Finalists

29 Jun

rio

Hmmm…maybe quiet wasn’t the best adjective to use, since there are a lot of interviews in this post. 😉 Still riding the high of their semifinal win, the boys traveled to Rio, where they will play the Confeds Final tomorrow. Eeek! I’m excited and nervous, especially after barely making it through those nerve wracking penalties.

Thursday Night (Now Early Friday Morning) Bits & Bobs

28 Jun

2539b724df3411e2acc922000ae81df1_7Excuse my lazy ass mood. I got home after 9 PM again tonight and I was just chillin’  and giggling over Sergio calling Jesus Navas “my little bird” on Twitter. WTF, Sese? Don’t ever change.

Here is a quick sweep of bits & bobs with more tomorrow. So, this is one ‘baller’s elementary school photo. Who might it be? Hint: Shigs is running in the other direction. Continue reading

Confederations Cup: Spain vs Tahiti

23 Jun

FBL-WC2014-CONFED-ESP-TAH-SQUAD

Before I get even farther behind on the match recaps, here is the Tahiti (which my fingers keep wanting to type as Tahini) post. Following the game, I felt pretty bad for Tahiti. 10-0 isn’t a fun score, but apparently the coach & team were just so overjoyed to have qualified for the Confeds, nothing could get them down. Coach Eddy Etaeta, said he was moved to tears during the team’s opening match, he was so proud of them, even though they were defeated 6-1. He also said, playing against Spain would be a dream. It’s nice to see the coach and team remain so proud to represent their country, even though the outcomes weren’t ideal. Spain did them in, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 times, so needless to say there are a lot of goals to look at and I won’t make this post even longer by going on & on. The goals shall speak for themselves…..mostly.

La Roja Official Shots, Part II

15 Jun

tumblr_mofsnr06yb1qftb6ko1_1280A second set of shots of La Roja were taken, this time more casual. Mixed results, of course, but one thing remains consistent: Mata is still killing it. Hello, pretty boy! Lord, I can only imagine the Casual Cesc one. Keeping an eye out for that. When I find it, I will share. (Photos via GFSports)

La Roja Keeps On a-Trainin’

Spain's Sergio Ramos spits water during a training session ahead of the Confederations Cup, in Recife

Resisting the urge to make a comment about Sergio and….not swallowing. Oops, sorry not sorry!

Happy Confederations Cup Eve! Who’s excited? I sure am. La Roja still has one more day of preparations before their first match on Sunday. It was the same routine for today, some training, being swarmed by fans, and giving pressers…you know, the glamorous life. Continue reading
