Hella Creepy Yet Somehow Mesmerizing

9 Apr

Nuri Sahin apparently needs a moment alone with his new Nike boots. GET A ROOM! #Awkward

Monday Bits & Bobs

1 Jul

tumblr_mp96s9pZz81r6ibubo1_500Work again has kept me from updating until quite late. Bah humbug! Pretty much all anyone was talking about today was the Confederations Cup. How about that goal line clearance from David Luiz? EPIC. Here he is carting Enzo around. Too much adorable for one picture.  Continue reading

A Quick Bitsy Bobsy Post

13 Jun

tumblr_mo90qtbQEf1qa3jw0o1_500Oh people, what a day I had! I was an hour late for work due to some sort of subway police drama and my 20 minute one train commute turned into about 90 minutes and FOUR trains. UGH. Then I spent the morning on conference calls followed by an epic 5 hour straight meeting. To say my brain is fried doesn’t cover it. So I thought I’d post a few quick pictures of some of our faves. Who better to start with than Marcelo? Continue reading

Updated: Bits & Bobs: Icky Mouse, Deafening Fangirl Screams & More

12 Jun

1371058040_extras_noticia_foton_7_1I know Shigs would take one look at all these pictures of Kaka with America’s favorite rodent and say “Icky Mouse” as sure as I’m standing here.  Speaking of, I had a lovely time with with watishistas Shigs, P, forzasusan & Baby Girl last night at the Spain vs. Ireland game. It was a drive by for me. I pretty much arrived and hit my seat right before the national anthem and tore out of there right after. Week night games suck.  Ireland did a great job much to the delight of forzasusan. I spent a lot of time sneaking peeks at Nando bitchfacing non-stop on the bench.  He did bust out a big grin and a hug for Robbie Keane though. Continue reading

A Crazy End To A Crazy Week

5 Mar

BEoU6fMCQAAo2ATIs anyone else happy that the last week is over? I feel like we’ve been on an emotional roller coaster. How on earth did we survive 2 Clasicos & a Champions League match against Manchester United and win them all? Continue reading

Prepping For The Clasico, Mou Interview, Bits & Bobs And La Roja Call Ups

5 Oct

This is just going to be another quick post and for that I’m heartily sorry. I got news about an hour or so ago that a dear friend was rushed to the hospital with a blood clot. We almost lost him, but thank god, he’s stable now. As soon as I can leave work (another hour from now), I’m tearing up to the hospital to see him. I’m waiting for some calls back on some stuff that must be done today so I can’t go just yet. It sucks that I can’t get out sooner, but taking a few minutes to update the blog is calming me down a bit. If I was just sitting here twiddling my thumbs, I’d go mad. Continue reading

Happy Birthday Nuri!

5 Sep

Even though Nuri is off on loan to Liverpool, we’d like to wish him a happy 24th birthday. I hope that he, Tugba and baby Omer are settling in nicely. Feliz cumpleanos!

Updated: Nuri Sahin: Liverpool’s Number 4

25 Aug

Well, here you go! He passed his medical and has been given the number 4. While I pictured him wearing red this season, I really thought it would be that of Arsenal. Best of luck, Nuri! We’ll be keeping an eye on you.

Updated: Here’s a nice interview with Xabi from the LFC website. He talks about Xabi’s love of the club and his encouragement to go there.

It’s Official: Nuri Sahin To Liverpool

25 Aug

Nuri is off to a season long loan to Liverpool, pending the result of a medical. I’m gathering there won’t be an issue. Good luck Nuricorn! I hope you’ll get the playing time you deserve and come back to us someday.

The Calm Before The Injury Storm

19 Aug

Here’s some shots of the boys arriving today at the Bernabeu for what would turn out to be a disappointing tie with several of our players ending up bleeding and/or mangled. Ugh. There will be a recap of the game, but definitely not tonight. Continue reading
