Mazel Tov: Real Sociedad Advance!

28 Aug

BSyURqNCIAAAjl8Congratulations to Real Sociedad who have made it into the group stages of the Champions League for the first time since 2003. The last time they were in the Champions League one Mr. Xabier Alonso Olano was one of their star players. They were knocked out by Lyon at that time, so it’s poetic justice that this time, they were the ones doing the axing of the French team. Pirata posted this picture saying it was a big day for the fans, the club & the team. He also said he was proud to be a part of their family. ::sniffle:: He’ll always be a part of our family, but I’m thrilled to see him somewhere that he is happy and loved.

12 Aug


Wouldn’t it be freakin’ awesome if the universe could clear your schedule when things like preseasons & RM matches come around? I’m still waiting for an app for that. *Sigh* It was a busy month & it was tough for me to keep up with the boys, almost as tough as the position Benz found himself in! Before I forget, I want to wish the Muslim Watishistas Eid Mubarak, I hope all your prayers & fasts were accepted and that you enjoyed the holiday. Now, I’ve compiled all the goodies from each match and they’re ready for viewing. Here comes part I of the massive preseason recap!
