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.

Copa del Rey Final Contestants Announced: El Derbi Madrileño Coming Soon

28 Feb
There's some serious intensity coming up

There’s some serious drama about to go down.

This will be a quick post because I have to head out soon, but let me just say this: Madrid, Madrid, Madrid and more Madrid. The Copa del Rey final has Madrid written all over it thanks to the dynamic duos VaraCris and CostAlcao. Yesterday it was all about Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphaël Varane, and today Diego Costa and Radamel Falcao stole the spotlight. Although today’s clash between Atlético Madrid and Sevilla resulted in a 2-2 draw, the former advanced to the final with an aggregate score of 4-3.

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.

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.

Sergio Ramos: Sad Breakup

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?!
