#10 with 9 days to go…

December 16, 2012

There were already hints last season that the bromance between Sergio Ramos and Mesut Özil could go down as one of our top ones in recent history.  After all, they were neighbors, they often got together at Mesut’s house to eat his noodles with garlic, tomatoes and eggs (as his dad revealed) and they shared a love for headbands, baseball caps and clothes with designer logos splashed on them.

This season, it went up to a whole new level.

Perhaps the most famous example from this season is Sergio wearing Mesut’s shirt under his own jersey in the game against Depor, because he wanted to dedicate his first goal of the season to his beloved Mesut (and perhaps also show his support).  Following that, Mesut described the two of them as “superamigos.”

Then came reports that they borrow each other’s cars, and lots of tweets and posts where they posted pictures of each other, called each other “bro” and in general lavished praise in the other’s direction, plus goal dedications.  Meanwhile, Sergio told “El Larguero” that Mesut is “super fun” and “you can see it in his eyes” (jokingly), that they understand each other “perfectly” between Mesut’s “half English” and his own “half English,” and that he’s taken charge of Mesut since the first day he arrived, to help him adapt to the city by telling him where to live, where to eat and things like that (also where to shop, I’m sure).   I love the idea of Mesut having a big brother in Sergio to take care of him in the big city!  Iker also said recently that “Sergio speaks a lot with Mesut” – I wonder if Mesut will end up with an Andaluz accent?  And would these be some of the words that Sergio has taught Mesut?  Some of them are quite useful to “ligar,” which I’m sure Sergio knows a lot about!

Soy muy feliz (with this bromance)!  How about you?

    I fully endorse the bromance between Sergio and Mesut, two of my favourite players who represent different sets of characteristics that reflect the values of Real Madrid. Sergio, the heart, desire, the never-say-die attitude that lasts the entire 90 minutes. Mesut, the graceful play, imagination and magic that fans expect of Real Madrid. Since we’re celebrating Özil today I think we should also remember all the wonderful assists he has created against the eternal foe in his tenure so far, most for his partner in crime on the field, i.e. Cristiano Ronaldo. Long may it be so. He’s still young and has time to get even better. Merry Christmas everyone. Hala Madrid!!!

    Sergio used to be a bromantic player, but he met Mesut and Mesut is THE ONE.

    I adore them. I call them “Serzil” and have carefully documented this bromance from the beginning (the first time they hugged – against Hercules in 2010) and all the times Sergio picks him up to cuddle him, and looks after him etc…

    They are too adorable for words.

    it’s good to know that even if, on the field, this team seems to keep breaking my heart lately, at least off the field they are making me muy feliz, too!

    these two crack me up. they’re almost like lovesick 15-year-olds. i would really, really love to hear an actual conversation between them — some sort of linguistic germanic/spanish/english hybrid with lots of hand gestures and miming, i’m sure!
