My heart bleeds for Atleti

So this is how it ends.

A heartfelt congratulations to the best team in the world! |  Source

I wanted to write a celebratory post the day Barça won the double but I decided to wait until after the Champions League finals. As a solid Barça fan, I really wanted Atleti to win. Never mind that they were the ones who kicked Barça out, or that their game play usually involves rough defending that ends with clean sheets but barely any goals. Call it schadenfreude but I really do find pleasure in seeing Real Madrid lose.

But today they won.

Do me a favor, babe. Please change your hairstyle. Pretty please? Thank you. Love you.

1. My boy Griezmann is a pretty, pretty lad but he needs to get rid of his shitty hairstyle — blonde bigotilyo? Ugh!

2. Barça inched past Atleti on the first leg of the Copa quarterfinals, 1-0. Hope they get more goals in the second leg next week. Bagging a win against Atleti pretty much secures them the Copa trophy. Kilig!

3. I have a Math unit exam tomorrow. I think I’m ready but I need more practice. Tonight is the night for more practice.

4. I may have been chewing really loud when I entered the Physics classroom while munching a Kitkat bar this afternoon. John slowly turned his head and sneaked a glance. I hope he’d do that more often.

5. I’m 1/3 done with A Brief History of Time. Next will be Locke and Key, the comics. After that, hopefully fantasy or science fiction. Name of the Wind? I, Robot? Something like those.

After 10 long years, my paper’s done!

It’s more like 10 days and not 10 years actually, but…yeeeeeeeey! Now I can do other stuff without feeling guilty for putting off school work. Yeeeeey!

And Argentina topped Group F today! Yeeeeeey!

My boys will be facing Switzerland in the next round. Pffff, easy peasy Japanese-y. Although their backline has a Buckingham Palace-sized room for improvement, Di Maria and Messi—especially Messi—have been doing great for the team. Hope they make it to the semis (because I’m damn sure they’re gonna make it past the Round of 16). Don’t disappoint me, please? Mwah mwah.

Speaking of disappointment, I sincerely hope Team Imperialist disappoints tomorrow. Nothing against the people of America; I just really want to see the US lose. Come on, universe. They’re the world’s most powerful nation, let them lose this time! Let Ghana in so they can slap their corrupt officials with a win. Not that it will eradicate corruption or poverty whatsoever. I just want to see more Africans—and no US—in the next round.

And oh, by the way, there’s also this widely-talked-about biting incident by Luis “handball” Suarez during the Uruguay-Italy match:

It’s a huge deal, apparently. One, because this is not the first time Suarez bit a player on pitch. And two, because you’re not supposed to bite people on pitch or anywhere else, unless you’re defending yourself from assault or you’re doing kinky stuff.

FIFA has already started an official investigation on the incident. If proven guilty of going full Edward Cullen against Giorgio Chiellini, Suarez may face a possible two year ban from international matches. What I don’t get is, why the hell would he bite an opponent? He could have easily pushed Chiellini to the ground, or headbutt him a la Pepe. Other players tackle, they push and shove, some kick and punch. But bite? Hmm. Odaxelagnia, maybe? Eeeghh.

What else, what else? Oooooh. My World Cup cutie of the day: Antoine Griezmann. He plays for France (who’s moving on to the next round as well) and for Real Sociedad in La Liga. Use Google for other info.

Dude’s worthy of a two syllable dayuuuuum, eh? Ang gwaaaapoooo!
