58c70deae58c11e2a5bc22000a9e2899_7Okay, by opening with this Kaka in China shot, I’ve just assured that Shigs will not read the post ever. Girl, think of it as ripping off the Bandaid quickly. There’s more Kaka within, but I’m getting it out of the way first.

This is what happens when you basically take a weekend off from posting. Tonight will be a two post mammoth bumper crop of photos. Please bear with me as its more or less a photo dump. The weather here is too bloody hot and I’m too tired to do much more. All I can say is thank god for air conditioning otherwise, I’d be a puddle on the floor somewhere. Without further ado here’s A-L of the Bits & Bobs! (Updated to add pictures of Enzo, Guti, Antonella & Thiago. Please note Guti has a terrible hat on. Enzo does not) Continue reading

Things That Make You Go “Awwww!”

4th of July Bits & Bobs

859ef434e4bc11e287c922000ae904e6_7Toby Holden West donned his 4th of July finery and what better way to start this holiday post? For all of my fellow Americans, I hope you had a great day. Me? I had a day of epic sloth to make up for how chaotic things have been lately. I turned down every invite I got and spent the day enjoying some much needed alone time reading & watching movies. IT. WAS. BLISS. Back to work tomorrow though. Continue reading

Monday Bits & Bobs

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

Saturday Bits & Bobs: Missing Marcelo, Happy Families & PDA

29 Jun

tumblr_mp6gtojqdQ1qftb6ko1_1280I’ve been missing Marcelo a lot lately. It’s going to suck to see our boys divided on the pitch tomorrow but such is the nature of national team duty. Continue reading

Thursday Night (Now Early Friday Morning) Bits & Bobs

28 Jun

2539b724df3411e2acc922000ae81df1_7Excuse my lazy ass mood. I got home after 9 PM again tonight and I was just chillin’  and giggling over Sergio calling Jesus Navas “my little bird” on Twitter. WTF, Sese? Don’t ever change.

Here is a quick sweep of bits & bobs with more tomorrow. So, this is one ‘baller’s elementary school photo. Who might it be? Hint: Shigs is running in the other direction. Continue reading

26 Jun

2171ab38dd7c11e29ef522000ae91450_7It was another long day at work and since I’ve been home, I’ve been riveted by whats going on in Austin. Sen. Wendy R. Davis has been filibustering to protect reproductive rights in Texas for the past 10 hours. The shit has been going down, people. The TX GOP just (as I started writing this) ruled her off topic for the final time because she was talking about sonograms in relation to abortion (she had two previous “strikes”). WTF?! There were chants of “Let her speak!” in the chamber. Anyhow, to quote Wendy: “Lawmakers need to stay out of the vagina business or go to medical school.” Yes, yes they do. So ends my political ranting for tonight. But you’ll get more tomorrow because the US Supreme Court will be voting on marriage equality – something else I feel passionate about.

So, um, now on to something completely shallow as we are wont to do. Cris & Irina are on a private jet. Where may they be going you might ask? Continue reading

Iker’s take on Brazil

Hey everyone – I apologize for getting this post up so late. I’m up to my ass in work and I didn’t even get home from work until after 9 PM and I’m sick to boot. I needed to get some food in my system and unwind for a few minutes before I started posting pictures. Please understand that it can take hours to put a post together. I collect photos all day long, then I have to organize them, etc. I do this when I have a few free moments. I’ve had the beach pictures all day, but I haven’t had time to put them on the blog. As Sergio would say “Please be patience.” Anyhow, here’s a gigantic picture dump. As you can see, life’s a beach – well, if you’re a footballer. Continue reading

e6672394bcdb11e2bb8f22000ae90eb1_7Hey all – hope you’re having a good weekend. I’m feeling a bit run down and crummy this weekend so I’m trying to get some rest. Here’s some bits & bobs. First up, this fantastic shot of El Pirata taken by his friend Rorro. I miss him so much! I wonder where he’s going to end up next season? Continue reading
