Xabi Alonso Confirms Retirement At The End Of The Season

9 Mar

::Uncontrollable sobbing:: Xabi has confirmed that he will be retiring from football at the end of this season and posted this poignant photo on Twitter.

I knew it was coming, but it still hurts. Let’s hope our (I’ll always think of him as ours) GQMF decides to continue modeling because I don’t think that I can survive without seeing him regularly. What an elegant, smart player. He was  a pleasure to watch and I will miss him terribly. (And I hope that Bayern win lots this year so we can get at least one more look at Drunk!Xabi)

There have been engagements, baby announcements, singing in the mirror while dressed in a towel (Cristiano), blue gradient shoes (Sergio), celebrating on a camel (Mateo & Lukita) and a rather ungracious joke about a rival (Toni Kroos, being a bit rude, IMHO).  Let’s dig in! (It’s long so be prepared!) Continue reading

His Dream…My Nightmare

9 Sep

I bet he’d be pleased as punch if there was an entire world filled with Xavis. Me? Not so much. But a world filled with Xabis? Now that I could get behind. Make it so, Universe! Pretty please?

Back To Madrid, Accolades & Families

5 Aug


The team returned to Madrid after Wednesday’s win over Bayern Munich arriving home on Thursday. The game was fun but exhausted (the trip back seemed to take forever). Mygypsyspirit and I spent the following day recovering and hanging out. She left today so I’m getting back to work on things with a very quick catch up.  Continue reading
