this video was up a few days ago, and i was supposed to post it in the osasuna match review, but we all know how well that turned out…  anyway, it’s our boys getting new suits.  check out vv bossing it against the wall with his fly open.

reminder to self:  that’s another career option for stalking.  so now it’s 1) physio; 2) barber/salon specialist; 3) tailor


a while ago, i saw some lovely exchanges from ex-barca brazilians on twitter.  it all started when the-real-ronaldo was asked if rivaldo tweets in english —

and somewhere in the middle of that, juliano belletti decides to troll —

for the recently-initiated, the-real-ronaldo is ronaldo luis nazario de lima, ballon d’or winner and barcelona striker in the 1996-97 season, wearing the coveted number 9.  during this time, he helped the team win the spanish supercup, the copa del rey and the now-defunct uefa cup winners’ cup (yes, redundancy fail).  he also set a liga record for scoring 34 goals in the season, a record equalled by messi in 09-10 but surpassed by fake-ronaldo in 10-11.  by the time puyi and xavi were promoted into the first team, ronaldo had transferred to inter.  but eventually they would meet again when ronaldo was signed by madrid.

heroes who turned to the dark side... but they're worlds apart, really. ronaldo was always well-received at the camp nou even as a blanco. the same can't be said for old pig-o there.

rivaldo vitor borba ferreira played as midfielder for the club from 1997-2002, during which time they won the liga twice and the copa del rey and uefa supercup once.  during our centennial year, he won the ballon d’or, world soccer player of the year, european footballer of the year and fifa world player of the year.  yes, all that.  at barca, he wore the #11 jersey.

newly-promoted puyi running with the big boys

reunion of legends

ronaldo, rivaldo and (another ex-barca) ronaldinho formed the trident of strikers for brazil in the 2002 world cup final.  the selecao brasileira beat germany 2-0, with ronaldo scoring both goals.

juliano haus belletti was blaugrana from 2004 to 2007, during which time he scored a single goal — but it was the most epic of goals that will forever be etched in cule history as the goal that won us the champions league.  for details, pls feel free to browse my previous post


to get over my depression over fontas, i scanned youtube for funny barcelona stuff.  here’s some bad acting, cute mumbling, etc

messi with meerkats —

messi & xavi “bowling” —

puyi with a catalan tongue twister —

pique double choc —

iniesta and his bear —

alexis for gillette —

and cross-dressing messi —

and of course, for the upcoming clasicos —

      don’t you just envy that girl who’s just smiling there in the middle of all those barca boys?

        And getting to “fit” them! I love her in a suit, as well. Very classy. My only complaint (not your fault, of course): the video should have been way longer. I guess the FCB site was trying not to be too creepy. 😉

        puyi buttoning his shirt and xavi checking himself out in the mirror — we should have had at least a minute of that 🙂
