the bets are on!

February 14, 2012

Still not sure this is the best, most adorable team in the world?

Earlier today, Álvaro Arbeloa tweeted a photo (the tweet has since been deleted).  It showed a pair of “3D boxers” from Cibeles Fashion Week (now known as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid, but most people still call it by its old name).  He also felt the need to tell us, “they’re not mine!  I’m accepting bets though.”  Then came this photo of someone actually modeling the boxers.

Shortly after, Sergio tweeted, “with respect to the photo tweeted by Arbeloa, I leave two hints.  1.  It is possible that it came in the pack along with the Lamborghini.  2.  It wasn’t Lass.”   That was followed up with this tweet: “no more doubts.  Although it appears to be a lie, the Spartan @aarbeloa17 wore these underpants today.  A bit bold.”

In response, Álvaro tweeted, “with friends like these, who needs enemies?  I’m not going to leave my mobile phone unlocked anymore!”

I wonder who they belong to?  Cris is a sure bet, but that would be too easy, no?  The biggest surprise would be if they belonged to say… Xabi Alonso or Esteban Granero.  Or Rafa Varane.  And did someone take over Alvarito’s phone to tweet the second photo?  Who do you think the model is?

And a note to these guys: next time, a photo of one of you in boxers (or preferably, all of you) would be a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for all of us girls, single or attached, so think about it.

(Or perhaps this was one player’s Valentine’s Day surprise for his significant other.  If that’s true, she has my sympathies.)

    i was laughing my ass off when I saw this. Not just the question stays whom are the pants, since they obviously screwed him,when did the joke start and who was it? My bet is on Sergio & Pipa (Arby isnt biting nails no? so I guess that are Pipas hands) so the joke started there already.

      Well if it was Sergio it’d be more than obvious with his tattoos wouldn’t you think? lol

        i didnt mean posing or holding up, Marcey. Of course that would have been too obvious. but he was tweeting and thats why Im sure he was involved!

        i think the “model” was indeed Arby and they secretly took the pic.

    Those hands look like Higuain’s. Especially those chewed fingernails.

    I think we can agree that those legs look too tanned to be Iker’s!

    oh gosh….that’s not exactly the Valentines surprise form RM players that I would expect or request to see, I agree..;-)

    it is a bit funny though that they thought that this would be more funny that it really is 😉

    I mean, I enjoyed Sergio’s thight pic (famous here) much more;-)

    Omg how adorable is team:):) Love them so much. I couldnt believe it when I saw i!!!!Love Arbeloa on twitter he is hilarious:):)
    Ok Im sure they dont belong to Cris. Cant be Kaka, not Xavi, not Sergio, certainly not Iker.Obviously not Marcelito or Lass…
    My best bet would be Arbeloa or Abiol jajajjaja:):)

    Oh Gosh! XD~ The pictures already were really hilarious! But I couldn’t figure out the whole story (despite using Ikers best friend google translate) and so I’m very happy you translated everything for us! Thank you! ❤

    And I'd love to know to whom the boxers belong & who's wearing them in the pic!
    I wish the boys would unravel the mystery!

    Guys it is cr7s underwear. Sergio Ramos clue gave it away. He recently got lambourgini as a birthday present dident he? Raul albiol expressed in twitter how jellous he was of cr7 and his new car. Dose not surprise me it is cr7 he is the mone with the rather discussible sence of style….
