Training, More Nominations, Checking in with Sami, and a Familiar Face

4 Dec


Methinks Sergio is bitter about the comments I made about his hand gestures yesterday….I can see the anger in his eyes and the indecision in his hands. You’re still my favorite Pony, Sese!

Real Madrid Preseason 2013: Part II

12 Aug


Lawd knows we love trophies and Lawd knows after last season, we more than deserve all of them…ok, most of them 馃槈 If Cristiano & Iker can lift awards and trophies in the preseason, I sure as hell am going to hold them to it when we get down to business with La Liga, the CdR, and Champions League. Who’s with me?!?!

The End….for now

4 Jun


I’ve changed my mind. I take it back. I don’t want this season to be over & done, I’m just not ready. I thought I had made my peace with the fact that Mou would no longer be with us next season, along with a number of our players, but…..come the final match, all my acceptance went right out the window. Seeing Mou in the tunnel, seeing the boys chat in the tunnel, waiting for the beginning of the end, it just did me in and then Pipa goes and drops a bomb the size of his ass, saying he wants to leave?? My life officially became a Cymbalta commercial. No joke. My iTunes library certainly wasn’t helping the matter either, putting together the saddest shuffles known to man. Talk about Ode to Depression. I know at this point, there’s nothing we can do but try and figure out how to deal….it’s not going to be easy, but hopefully launching into NT mode will help. And cake. And lots of ice cream. And lots of sobbing into your ice cream. WAHHHH!

The Last Away Match of The Season

29 May

Real Sociedad de Futbol v Real Madrid CF - La Liga

Bum, bum, bum, it’s all about the bum and when that bum scores, it’s even better. Yep, it was Pipa that led the scoring against Sociedad, way to go! In the end, we didn’t get the win, but we did see a lot of goals. The home team equaled us, 3 for 3, with a late winner from Xabi Prieto (damn him!) and we ended our last away match of the season with a draw.

Training, Xatty Xabi & Sergio, a Bebe, a Retirement, & more

16 May


We’ve got less than 24 hours to go until the FINAL kicks off! Training done? Check. Interviews & pressers done? Check. Tucked in at the hotel? Check. Freaking out? Check. Hopefully that last one is happening only on our parts, we need cool, calm, & collected boys who are ready to kick some ass tomorrow. I want to see big goals, a big win, and a big celebration! Make it happen boys, we need that trophy!

Remember game recaps? Those things I used to be so on top of? Yeah….so sorry about that. After our exit from the CL, writing time kind of flew out the window, which resulted in a bunch of semi-started game recaps, just sitting & collecting on my computer. I just finished breaking my back over an eight foot painting, so here I am able to bring you MalagEspanyolisticexpialidocious (even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious!), two recaps in one! Hopefully y’all don’t mind some old news & a little been there, seen that.

*Breathe In* *Breathe Out*

3 May


I really want to write this recap from an accepting place, but it has to be said…..MOTHERFUCKER!!!! It really does hurt to have been so freaking close!聽 I still can’t believe the last 10 minutes of the 2nd leg happened. If I was sick to my stomach before & during the first 80 minutes of the match, then I don’t know what I was when the boys started to turn things around. My nerves were already shot & I sure as hell wasn’t ready for the sharp turn, the Real Madrid Emotional Roller Coaster ride took after Benz’s goal. I went from thinking, *GOALLLLL*, to *Well, I’m glad this isn’t ending goalless*, to *HOLY SHIT! COULD THIS BE THE COMEBACK??*. Prior to the goal, no doubt like many of you, I was disappointed. We weren’t promised a comeback, but we were promised that the team was going to die trying to give us one. That just wasn’t happening, but as soon as Benz scored, boy did those feelings of disappointment fly out the window. And I kind of fell in love with that moment, because I had had faith in the team that they could make this comeback, right from the end of the first leg, but somewhere in the middle I had lost that faith and it made me a little disappointed in myself, in the end. I needed to have my ass kicked by hope & belief, and that’s what happened when Benz & Sergio scored their goals. It felt good to be down to the last 60 seconds and still believe that our 3rd & savior of a goal could be scored. Of course, that goal didn’t come, but I needed that moment of “Yeah, the chances are slim, but this is my team and we can do ANYTHING!” That belief & undying love for your team are part of the genetic makeup of sports fans. Look it up. We’re three parts crazy, two parts love & devotion, and trace amounts of body paint & snack crumbs. I knew that if we weren’t going to make it to the finals, the one thing I wanted was to go out with my bursting Madridista pride, still intact. And I got what I wanted, because even though it hurts like hell, we turned that first leg heart breaker around and missed the damn thing by one goal. One goal. I think this year and last year’s semifinal defeats will end up making our future win, all the more sweeter and I can’t wait to see it happen.聽 Continue reading

BenZil > Betis

24 Apr

Jose Mourinho, Cristiano Ronaldo, Alvarez Izquierdo

There’s no way to be sure, but it looks like the ref was introduced to Mou’s birdie, on Saturday….so how could I not start this thing with some feisty Mou action? The man knows how to get himself into trubs, that’s for sure, but one cannot help but admire his DILLIGAF (does it look like I give a fuck) attitude. He’s got his boys’ backs! Ok, that’s my Mouppreciation moment, let’s get to the goods. Continue reading

Goals for Days…

20 Apr


Can I get a Woot Woot for Saturdays? Yes ma’am, this shitter of a week is over! I woke up feeling like I could finally exhale and it feels good, it feels so good that I thought *Hmmm…why not, finally, put some game posts together that feature so many pics & gifs, that it will probably take 10 minutes to load, once published.* So here that post is….just let your internet connections do what they do, for a minute, before you start scrolling 馃槈 Or count 50 Woot Woot‘s, or ogle them champion calves up!

Goal-licious Against Levante

11 Apr

Real Madrid's Casillas sticks out his tongue as he sits in the bench before his Spanish first division soccer match against Levante in Madrid

Licky licky, licky licky, Iker likes to, licky licky, licky licky. Sorry, I had to…actually, I’m not sorry. Look at San Iker getting freaky on the bench! The Levante match had it going on, beautiful things happening on the pitch & beautiful people sitting on the bench, under some extremely flattering, washes of blue light…..excuse me while I daydream about our team as Mermen.
