El Clásico. Enough Said.

31 Jan

I’m ashamed for not stopping by and posting anything for a few days; it’s a rather hectic unemployed life! However, I think that when we have a Clásico, the world should stop for 90 minutes, and every soul should fill their brains with images of Real Madrid and Barcelona in action in the same pitch. This is a time of hefty bets, insults, fist punches, jaw drops, tight stomachs, nail polish chipping, nail biting, knuckle cracking, clapping, hugging, yelling, singing, OMG’s, etc. I always worry for the fans who have diabetes or high blood pressure during this time. Needless to say, here in The Stilettos of Fútbol, a Clásico always earns a 10 in the scale of stiletto height, regardless of the final score or the players going all thug on each other. Here’s the recap of tonight’s El Clásico that ended with a 1-1 tie.

Real Madrid Embarrasses Valencia in Second Match of Trilogy

20 Jan

As I tuned into BeINSport this afternoon to watch Real Madrid play Valencia for the second time in a row, I was honestly worried I would fall asleep. Staying up late last night and waking up early this morning had rendered me exhausted. But these fútbol players are relentless drama queens and and they were determined to spice up their 90 minutes in the Mestalla pitch.

Barcelona’s Bubble Bursted in Drama Packed Match v. Real Sociedad

19 Jan

Look at Piqué about to do the walk of shame.

Wait a minute, did it really happen?! Uh, yes it did. That’s right. Barcelona lost. For the first time this season. Against #9 Real Sociedad. That in itself earns an 10 in the scale of stiletto height.

Pep Guardiola: Fútbol’s Hottest Bachelor Taken by Bayern Munich!

18 Jan

Lovely paramour

My life has been pretty hectic now that I’m unemployed since Monday (wahhh!), so I have not had time to sit down and tell you all about the fútbol drama. BUT, on the bright side, while I find a new job, I will have all the time in the world to watch fútbol all day errday. They say things happen for a reason, and I strongly believe that I was laid off so that I can enjoy the Champions League without a single distraction. Pep Guardiola, on the contrary, just got a new job, and he’s getting 10 million euros a year for it.

Confessions of a Mesut Özil Supporter

13 Jan

ozilI guess it is time to admit it: I am a sucker for all things Mesut Özil, 24-year-old Turkish-German midfielder for Germany’s national team and Real Madrid club team.  I first noticed this lad in the 2010 World Cup, when I was in Las Vegas celebrating my college graduation.  That was complete bliss, fútbol AND Vegas *sigh*.  When Real Madrid plays against The Galaxy in Los Angeles every year, I make sure to purchase my tickets on the side that Özil plays.

I woke up too early this morning to take an exam. I rushed through it to come home, watch some fútbol and drink tea.  I began to think I was watching Mean Girls, but I double checked and in fact it was fútbol! Both the Premier League and La Liga had some quality drama going on.
* Note: This post contains multiple references to the movie Mean Girls. It is a must-watch.

CR7 v. Pep Guardiola: Cat Fights and Grudges

12 Jan

For all you Madridistas and Blaugranes out there (or just fútbol lovers looking for a little amusement), do you remember this ultra cat fight on November 29, 2010, initiated by Pep Guardiola and Cristiano Ronaldo?

háblale a mi manita

For the uninitiated, the term manita refers to the instance in which a team scores five goals in a single match. Surprise, surprise, Barcelona effortlessly did this to Córdoba in today’s confrontation at the Camp Nou. Just when Los Blancos had scored four goals, La Blaugrana comes and scores five. Talk about stealing the spotlight.

10 Jan

“Why can’t I sit with you?!?”

Star defender Sergio Ramos was kicked out for bidding a not-so-friendly adieu to ref Miguel Ángel Ayza Gámez in last night’s Celta Vigo v. Real Madrid confrontation. As I explained on my last post, Sergio was sent off the pitch after earning two yellow cards that automatically turned into a red card. BeIN Sport reports that he called the referee a “sinverguenza” (shameless crook) and continued to fire insults as he exited the stage. But how dare Ayza Gamez expel him?!

Real Madrid v. Celta Vigo – Cristiano the Supermodel, Adiós Sergio Ramos, Mou the Diva

9 Jan


I was a complete wreck today; my nerves were a roller coaster ride because I am at work and cannot access live streaming online.  Luckily, I have a million hours worth of vacation time, so I asked for a few hours off to rush home and watch Real Madrid play Celta Vigo for a place in the Copa del Rey’s quarterfinals. The sacrifice was definitely worth it because there was tons of drama going on.
