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

AC Milan v. Inter Milan Derby della Madonnina, PSG v. Marseille Le Classique & Brazil’s Ronaldo Tribute

25 Feb

Today started off on the greatest note. I had a dream, in which Sergio Busquets visited me and we went on a hiking roadtrip to Los Angeles. He was wearing a light gray hoodie and was craving Wendy’s. Seriously, Mr. Millionaire Busquets, Wendy’s? Oh well, Wendy’s it was. I woke up from the dream at 4:30 a.m., completely inspired to work out. I headed to the gym and arrived there before it opened and before anyone else showed up. I hope I have more dreams like these for gym motivation purposes. I honestly don’t know why I had a dream about Busquets; I have never even thought of him, but a trip with a top-notch fútbol player never hurts, right?

In addition to my Busquets dream, a refreshing gym sesh, and my religious dose, today was the Derby della Madonnina, AND Le Classique, AND a tribute to legendary Brazilian Ronaldo within that French derby. Let’s start with Italy’s fiercest fútbol clash in the San Siro.

real-madrid-manchester-unitedI need to do a massive amount of stretching tonight so that I can be ready for tomorrow, as I’m too sore to sit. I started doing a new kind of plyometrics and I can already feel the effects. If any of you are interested in plyometrics, you can find some information here. And if any of you are wondering what is happening tomorrow…shame on you!

Tomorrow, February 13, 2013, Manchester United and Real Madrid will meet for the first leg of the last-16 in the Champions League. Needless to say, I am too excited. I feel way more excited about this game than to see my crush. I have been looking forward to this match for months. Manchester United and Real Madrid have history, which is recently even more interesting due to a factor that they have in common: a certain lad named Cristiano Ronaldo. Let’s take a look at some quick stats.

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.
