What on earth can I possibly say? There have been rumblings but the reality is still like punch to the gut. It’s Sergio, FFS! Tomorrow there will be a tribute to our capi and then he will speak to the press. I just…can’t at the moment. I will try to find some words later.


It’s Bayern

17 Mar

Because the universe hates us and wants to rub Xabi Alonso in our face one more time, we have drawn Bayern as our next opponent in the Champions League. First leg is away on April 12 and the second is at home on April 18. Other matchups: Atletico Madrid-Leicester, Borussia Dortmund-Monaco and Juventus-Barcelona.

One Big Reason To Support Ireland In The Euros

24 May

And that reason is to make up for the horror and indignity of them having to suffer through Jedward singing their support song.  This is disturbing on an epic scale. It’s absolutely painful to watch. Poor Ireland! They didn’t deserve this!  I can imagine watishista forzasusan is headdesking in despair somewhere on the other side of Manhattan even as we speak. It’s not pouring in NYC right now, that’s the rivers of tears from distraught Ireland fans who have seen this. Oy. A tip of the hat to Futfanatico for discovering this travesty.

The Universe Is SO Hating On Us

Watishista News Flash: Problems Commenting On WordPress Blogs

15 Mar

Some of you have been experiencing issues commenting here at HB & HB. I did a little detective work (thanks to watishista Em for giving me the heads up) and it turns out that WordPress decided to “update” the commenting system and didn’t bother to announce it in advance to blog owners. Would have been nice to know, guys!  Anyhow, here’s the skinny: Continue reading

UPDATE: Karim “Models” Fugly New Kit

26 May

Watch as Karim awkwardly models the new home kit in this new video along with other Adidas looks.  He must learn to never tuck the shirt in – it looks terrible when they do that! He’s a hot, hot man, but that makes him look like a nerd. Well, at least we know what the white kit looks like and can begin going through the 5 stages of grief. Sigh. Let’s hope some of the other ones aren’t real (I’m looking at you, seizure inducing check print)! Watishista! maddy found this footage – thanks, girl!

UPDATE! In the time it took me to type up this post, the full video was yanked from Vimeo! Luckily, @Madridsta_ had the sense to make a gif of the appropriate part here. Maddy also sent that on.

Just When I Thought It Couldn’t Get Any Worse…

2 Apr

I’m not ready to talk about the game just yet. Not by a long shot. But I have to tell you what happened post-game. First, I’m going to take a quick minute to appreciate Manu’s abs because that’s about the only thing I can appreciate about him today. JAY-SUS. Anyhow, I left the pub in tears and proceeded to the grocery store to pick up some Ben & Jerry’s and beer so I could drown my sorrows. As I was paying, I saw the cover of the New York Daily News. “TERROR TEACH!” it blared. It was the cover story about a Brooklyn art teacher who allegedly made remarks that she was going to “settle some scores” and threatened some Columbine action at the school. She was arrested yesterday. What did she choose to do her perp walk in, you may ask?

Sergio & Arbeloa: Raiding Each Other’s Closets?

18 Mar

Remember our disgust at this hideous outfit of Sergio’s? Well, either he gave those wretched jeans to Arbeloa or they raid each other’s closets. Seriously, if you were going to raid Sergio’s closet, better you took the famous green jeans and mandals than these monstrosities!  Absolutely repulsive.

(Arbeloa screenshot courtesy of this post by unamadridista)

Ugh! Utterly disgusting jeans and with a bright yellow jacket to boot. I don’t even want to know what shoes he chose to go with this ensemble. Why can most footballers not dress themselves?! They should let Xabi and Nagore dress the whole damn team every day (and let us undress them every damn night)! Who is with me on this?
