Iker Casillas v. Álvaro Arbeloa: round I

September 30, 2011

No, they didn’t have a fight after a training session or one didn’t invite another to his (not easy) party, as the press would have you believe.  Instead, Iker and Alvarito challenged each other to a 35-meter sprint!  Luckily, Sergio Ramos was on hand to capture the race… And I have to say, I love that they do things like this!  It’s so adorable!  Notice a theme today?

Afterward, Iker wrote on his Facebook, “in my defense, I will say that I had an extra session of shots at the goal, and I was a bit fatigued… Arbeloa was fresher!”  In response, Álvaro posted on his Facebook, “excuses!”  And Sergio tweeted, “although it appears to be a lie, Iker’s not attached to a tow rope…”  He also said today’s challenge was speed, so does that mean there are more challenges?  With different participants too?  I hope so!  I really, really hope so!  And if I had to bet on the winner, I would have placed my money on Álvaro.

Anyway, here’s what went down on the adorable video.

00:01: Sergio shouts, “the challenge – Arbeloa vs. Iker.”

00:04: “Speed.”

00:07: Sergio breathes sexily.

00:08: Xabi shouts, “ready, set, go!”

00:10: they’re off!

00:12: Sergio’s excited!  ¡¡¡¡Woooooowwwwww!!!!

00:14: “Whooooooooaaaa!”

00:15: Álvaro demolishes Iker.  Not a photo finish at all.  Mou doesn’t look too impressed.  Albiol (?) Callejón (?) likes the result.

00:16: consolation: Iker is wearing some tight clothing.

00:17 : “Buenoooooo!”

00:20: the hair envy is back.

00:22: Sergio tells Iker, “what a disaster, melón” and asks him what his reaction is.

00:23: Iker replies, “what a start, joder” while out of breath.  He sounds pretty sexy too.

Unfortunately, the video ends there.  I love these boys so, so, SO much.

    I’m pretty sure the one at the finish line yelling when to start is Xabi. I recognize his (also very sexy) voice. I also love how he seems extremely tickled by the outcome. I really hope there are more challenges with all the players!

    I think the one who’s doing the countdown is Xabi.

    I really hope there will be more challenges!!! I esp. want to see Cris vs Kaka, Mesut vs Sergio, and Xabi vs Sami!

    I love it, I hope for more.

    We just have to be patience, as some help is hopefully going on so we could watch another party;-)

    And of course, who else would count to start if not Xabi 😉

    Those three are just too adorable ( like the rest of the team).
    Oh Iker, there is no need for excuses , we love you and to be honest everyone would have bet on Álvaro.
    Keep these videos coming Sergio!

    That is a really good racing outfit, Iker.

    Of course Xabi is the ref. He would have called them back for a false start, too.

    this is AWESOME. my two favourites … i have watched this over and over and over. poor iker! that outfit of his, i’m telling you, it looks like what the male ballet dancers used to wear in class. not flattering! what is with his addiction to base layers and under armour?!

    also, ‘joder’ means what i think it means, yes? 😉
