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

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?

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.

Manchester United v. Real Madrid: A History of the Modern World

13 Feb

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.

Birthday Boy Cristiano Redeems Himself With a Hat-Trick Against Sevilla

10 Feb
Everybody bow, it's my birthday

“Everybody rise, it’s my birthday.”

I have been pretty busy doing a photo shoot for The Stilettos of Fútbol. This Thursday I visited Sweetwater High School and shot some pictures in its football field. It’s about time to jazz up this place with interesting images and colors, don’t you think?

On a similar note, Real Madrid did some major jazzing up today.
