Pepe’s Back!/Crispy Speaks

6 Feb

Oh my! Work has been so nutsballs today that I have missed all the international games. Watishista Em has been kindly updating me on the scores via Twitter. I’ll have to download the games later and try to watch. The big news is that Pepe is back training with the team! Continue reading

Bye, Bye, Bayamon

16 Aug

Puerto Rico, my heart’s devotion. Let it NOT sink back in the ocean. Ok I’ll be up front about this, I was hoping Puerto Rico would score at least one goal – I ain’t looking to be accused of being a bad Puerto Rican – and they did! See? You can love your team and their opponent once in a while. La Roja still came away with the win, big surprise, and all is good. Santi Cazorla & Cescy scored with a one-two punch of goals late in the 1st half and Marc Cintron came away looking like a hero! Continue reading

Daily Overdose Of La Roja Part I

24 May

Are you prepared for another giant 3 part La Roja picspam? I sure hope so. All day I’ve been singing this to the tune of the tune of The Rainbow Connection: “Why are there so many shots of hot Spaniards?/And why can’t I stop posting them?” These are the million dollar questions. My descent into madness after the jump… Continue reading
