About That…

25 Jun

After a long hiatus from S.O.F., I’ve decided it is time to come back. What has happened? Well, for one, the coworker who shared his love for fútbol with me just moved to a new city. Needless to say, I was very sad and almost cried.

On a more positive note, Continue reading

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

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

NO, Fergie, PLEASE don’t leave!… Heyy, Dave…

10 May

 fergiestatueMy day began on a sad note. After 26 years of coaching English futbol giants Manchester United, 71-year-old-gum-chewing-master Sir Alex Ferguson announced his retirement. Fergie had spread a similar rumor back in the 2001-2002 season, which backfired, and he vowed to never do it again. Rumor spreader. This time, though, it is true.  I almost cried. 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
