Ballon F’ive

7 Dec

I’m back! Kind of…I brought back a very special souvenir of my vacation – some sort of tropical crud that ended me up in the hospital last night – I kid you not – so I’m on doctor ordered bed rest for the next few days. But I would be remiss if I didn’t do a brief post to celebrated Cristiano’s fifth Ballon D’or! Well deserved! Continue reading

A Belated Welcome To Ibrahim Benzema

15 Nov

La relève ❤️

A post shared by Karim Benzema (@karimbenzema) on

While I was off in LA, Benz posted a photo of his six month old son Ibrahim who is adorable and looks just like his old man. WHAT SON?! you may be saying (like me!), well, you know the son that was born on May 14 with his wife. WHAT WIFE?! you may be saying (much like me!) and the answer to that would be the gorgeous Cora Gauthier, who he has been dating since late 2015. They apparently married in secret. I was totally oblivious. I guess because this all came out right about the time we won La Liga and that’s all I was thinking about.  Congrats to Karim, Cora and big sister Melia.

Prep Begins For Alavés & Benz Re-Ups

21 Sep

Yesterday’s match was a case of goalus interruptus. We got so very close to the net and couldn’t bury it. But props to Adan for a very strong performance. It sucks when we’re denied, but since he was one of our own, it vaguely eases the sting. I’m always happy when former players do well, just not against us, please!  Betis worked their asses off, no doubt about it. Continue reading
