Updated: Happy NYC Marathon Day Raul!

6 Nov

NYC Madridistas, keep your eyes peeled as our eternal capi runs his first NYC marathon! I’ll be cheering him on here in Brooklyn. The NYC marathon is always such a great day. I love watching and counting how many Madrid jerseys I see on runners (tons!). At least one of our watishistas (DK) has run the marathon and it’s a fantastic accomplishment. The runners really appreciate the encouragement, so if you can, get out there and support them. If you want to track Raul’s progress online (or any other runner), you can do so here.

Update: He finished in 3:26:05!

Haidar, You With The Stars In Your Eyes* , Christmas Catch Up & More

31 Dec

Satellite (10)While it was nice to end our year with a 3-1 win today, there were moments of sadness. First, no Pirata and most upsetting, Jailbait! tore his ACL for the third time and was carried off on a stretcher. I’m absolutely gutted for him. He’s like the Spanish Stu Holden. 😦 Continue reading

Raul & Marcos Senna Retire On A High Note

16 Nov

Raul went out on a high note last night and in a white shirt, no less (sadly, not our’s). The New York Cosmos won the 2015 NASL Championship. Continue reading

Blancos Lend A Hand To Julio Iglesias…

1 Nov

…and hilarity ensues. Mad props to watishista Katie Ann for posting this to Twitter and mygypsyspirit for letting me know because this is pants-wetting hysteria at its best.

Cristiano, Iker, Raul, Figo and other celebs (Pepe Reina, Vicente Del Bosque, Rafa Nadal, Jose Merce, etc.) lip sync a song from Julio’s new album seemingly on Skype with Microsoft Movie Maker graphics. Let’s put it this way, these guys would make really bad drag queens with those lip syncing skillz (well, that’s one reason, also Del Bosque’s mustache). It’s UNBELIEVABLE (and excruciating). And if you thought poor Iker was uncomfortable and awkward in these situations before, well, let’s just say you’re in for a treat. And seriously, how did Sergio not end up in this? Was he too busy to Face Time? I am weeping. This made my Sunday.

Happy Birthday Raul!

27 Jun

raul cosmosHappy 38th birthday to the glorious Raul! Having managed to get about 6 inches away from him back in May, I can vouch for the fact that he is perfect in every way. Shigs particularly likes his flaring nostrils. That may seem strange, but I must agree, they are fabulous.  Feliz cumpleaños, Raul!
