THE WORLD CUP

13 Jun

Yep, that’s it. The World Cup is here. This is like heavenly cupcakes for The Stilettos of Futbol.
And, of course this tournament started with drama.  It’s as if the teams are purposely performing for S.O.F. As soon as the Brazuca started rolling in the Brazil v. Croatia opening game, this is what occurred…

First, Marcelo committed social suicide by scoring against his own team in the 11th minute.  But Neymar equalized the score by delivering a successful shot from midfield in the 29th minute.  The score was 1-1 at halftime.

Then came Fred and decided to put on a show in the 79th minute.  He pretended as if Dejan Lovren fouled him, Ref Yuichi Nishiura believed him, and he awarded Lovren a yellow card and a penalty kick to Brazil, which Neymar easily netted.

This is why I am an advocate of instant replay in futbol! Oh well, it could have been worse.  Hulk could have hit somebody’s head with his cleats and gotten banned for another three years, right?

In any case, Oscar scored for Brazil in the , resulting in a final score of 3-1 in favor of the host country.

Croatia supporters, Niko Kovac, the head coach, were not happy and backlashed against the performance. 

This was the opening match in a nutshell:
Who: Brazil v. Croatia (Group A)
What: Playing the World Cup 2014 opening game
When: June 12, 2014
Where: Arena Corinthians
Why: BECAUSE IT’S THE WORLD CUP
How: 3-1 in favor of Brazil

 Next up we have:

Mexico v. Cameroon (Group A)- I’m half Mexican, so I am rooting for Mexico.
Spain v. Netherlands (Group B) – REMATCH! I’m supposed to be in my spinning class at that time, but I will run on the treadmill instead so I can watch the game.  We futbol lovers need to make adjustments, you know.  Plus, I can’t wait to see the Dutch trying to get revenge on the Spanish.
Australia v. Chile (Group B) – We shall see!

PSG’s League 1 Title – Victory, Fight, Beers, Hugs, Jumps, Riots, and the Hospital

14 May

This year’s Happiest Couple on Campus

France’s current star team Paris Saint Germain saw it all this weekend – a goal, beers, parties, an argument, and even the hospital.  On Sunday, PSG secured the Ligue 1 title after defeating Olympique Lyonnais 1-0 with a goal from Menes.  This is PSG’s first League 1 title since 1994 and the third in its 43-year history.  Naturally, Ancelotti’s men were very happy lads.   Continue reading

Nani’s Red Card. Need I Say More?

6 Mar
ouch

ouch

Let me jump straight into business here. The referee was the instigator this time. Not just any instigator, but THE hardcore instigator. The drama brewed in the pitch, overflowed to the post-match press conferences, and crossed the Atlantic Ocean all the way to The Stilettos of Fútbol. In tonight’s decisive clash between Manchester United and Real Madrid, all hell broke loose in the 56th minute.

Let’s look at the events leading up to the incident. It is no secret that prior to this match, Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho and Man U coach Sir Alex Ferguson did not hold Turkish 36-year-old insurance agent and football referee Cuneyt Cakir in

El SUPER Clásico: Messi’s Comeback, Ramos’ Unpunished Penalty, & Valdés Loses His Cool

3 Mar

Last night, my crush asked me out on an early hiking date this morning. How dare he! I could not believe he didn’t remember that this morning (in my time zone) we had not only any Clásico, but El SUPER Clásico. I mean, how can anybody on Earth forget? This is a special kind of Clásico because it is a La Liga Clásico. It is not one of the Copa del Rey or the Champions League. This is the real deal. As always, we had our players breaking records, shooting great goals, and a very special instance of drama that cannot be overlooked. I’m very excited to write this post.

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.
