Iker Casillas v. Álvaro Arbeloa: round I
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.”
00:07: Sergio breathes sexily.
00:08: Xabi shouts, “ready, set, go!”
00:10: they’re off!
00:12: Sergio’s excited! ¡¡¡¡Woooooowwwwww!!!!
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.
