First we get a WHAM BAM NO MORE LAHM, and now Gerrard?!?!? I refuse to accept reality! But I guess it’s official. The 34-year-old English captain has announced that he is hanging up his international boots after 114 caps. However, he plans to stay involved in the FA, and he will still play for Liverpool. If it wasn’t for my upcoming photo shoot, I would go to my pantry and eat my feelings and cry over Gerrard’s departure. So let’s analyze the German turn-up instead… 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

Today I did kickboxing for the first time.  Let’s just say I almost died. It was the good kind of dying, though, if it makes any sense.  Therefore, I really needed a good dose of ball kicking (fútbol) to reward myself for burning about a million and two calories.  Luckily, we had a good Serie A clash between the current top two Italian teams of this season, number one Juventus and second place Napoli. This battle ended in a 1-1 draw at the Stadio San Paolo, which maintains the Juventus six-point lead ahead of Napoli. Continue reading

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.

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.

Ángel Di María had Carles Puyol doing the splits (via 101greatgoals)

My abs are sore. Not from my workout earlier today, but from seeing Puyol do the splits in today’s El Clásico in the Camp Nou or should I say Camp Mou?. Should I have foreseen such an action-filled Clásico tonight, I would not have done so many planks this morning. Even Sir Alex Ferguson graced the Camp Nou with his appearance! Continue reading
