Real Madrid 2011 World Tour – USA Special

12 Aug

30 minutes of the magic, the memories and (for me) the heatstroke. I can’t wait for next year’s tour to roll around (with hopefully more hospitable temperatures).

Finally Back Home In Madrid

7 Aug


Our handsome gentlemen arrived back in Madrid this morning along with Flo P. Those who got called up for international duty will be preparing for games (in Italy vs. Spain on August 10 Nacho Monreal is replacing Sergio) while the others practice and gird their loins for the first Clasico of the season – the Supercopa. The first leg takes place this coming Sunday, August 14th. Ugh. Just not ready for the madness again. To our cule watishistas, let’s hope these matches go off with a whole lot less drama. No one needs last April’s bullshit and I’m sure you all feel the same way too.

Footage From The Adidas Clinic

7 Aug

Here’s some footage from the Adidas clinic where Real took on 109 kids. It’s pretty hilarious. You get to see Arbeloa try some fancy footwork, trip over a bunch of kids and do a somersault, Xabi breaking up that fight and a kid stealing the ball from Marcelo much to his suprise.  My favorite comment onYouTube came from Elephteros “The GuangZhou tactics were poor. They should have played with 40-40-28 diamond formation !!!” Brilliant!

Watishistas! Make The Best Detectives…

7 Aug


Remember how I was whining about how Sami never takes his shirt off and then he did and my stream crapped out before I could screencap it? My wail of despair must have touched a few hearts because you watishistas! went into action. Mari clued us that Mesut stripped after Sami while Maddy found the evidence. And Jenny found shirtless Sami in motion. Such a beautiful thing, this collaboration! Thanks, ladies and everyone enjoy!

So, Did You Notice This?

When Sergio bent down to put his boot back on, in addition to a close up of his luscious bubble butt, we got a close up of his foot. And what was he shod in, may you ask?

“C’mon Jose, Give Us A Smile”*

6 Aug

Like many of you, I’m up at the ungodly hour of 5:45 AM to watch the match. I wish like hell I could go back to sleep afterwards, but I have a ton of stuff to do, all of it before noon. Hopefully, I can take a nap later. Ugh.

Random Moments…

5 Aug

D’awwwwwww!  This is such a sweet picture. Cris is being a doll with the kids and they are flat out adorable. Look at their oversize kits and their wee little socks!  That wasn’t the only cute woobins hanging around in a Real Madrid kit. Feast your eyes on this bebe.

Signing Their Little Hands Off

4 Aug

Real Madrid had a second signing appearance, this time at a charity gala at the Westin. (The earlier one was at the Sheraton). Isn’t this picture adorable? They signed for a half hour. Even Flo P got in on the action…

Post Practice Presser/Adidas Clinic

4 Aug

The ever yummy Benze-Benze-Benzema and luscious Pipita were today’s spokesmodels.  Both reiterated that it’s not for them to say if the team should get another striker and Pipita went as far as to say that he was sick of the question. Me too, baby, me too. Wonder if they’ll slag him off and accuse him of a bad attitude like they did to Cristiano?
