today’s (morning) twitter update
… because I’m sure the afternoon will bring us more twitter gems from our boys.
Things we learned today:
One. That Álvaro Arbeloa welcomed Cesc to the world of twitter, that he calls him Cescky (Sexy?) and that he’s grateful that he didn’t make any bets this time (he had promised to go one year without drinking Coke if Xabi Alonso got on twitter, and now he has to do that!). Cesc thanked him in return, and said, “let’s see what I got myself into.” I like the sound of that!
Two. This led to Arbeloa saying, “talking via twitter with people who are three rows behind you is a bit strange!!” Jajaja!! I can imagine them sitting in a room, waiting for the míster to begin the charla, and fiddling with their mobile phones, sending out tweets to each other instead of verbally communicating. And every once in a while, one of them will start laughing, and there will be one other person in the room who knows exactly why. Now that Cesc is on twitter, who expects to see Piqué follow, just so he isn’t left out when Puyol and Cesc are tweeting at the same time? I can then totally see Geri challenging Cesc to a twitter faceoff, whatever that may be.
This in turn prompted a response from Getafe (and former Real Madrid) goalkeeper Jordi Codina, who is also very active on twitter. He tweeted, “and what about the good time you have? And how about when someone falls asleep and you take their picture??” Jordi of course, did that to club teammate Dani Parejo (who is on U-21 duty right now) during their last road trip.
Four. Meanwhile, Carles Puyol reassures us that he’s recovering, and is better every day. He hopes to be at 100% soon. We hope so too!
Five. And Juan Mata tweets from Alcoy that Spain is facing a must-win situation tonight against the Netherlands at 20:45h! He also asks for support here. Let’s go La Rojita!
