twitter is the place to be
If the sick bay is the place (unfortunately) for Real Madrid’s players to be right now, then twitter is it for those of La Roja!
Yesterday, the trilingual Cesc Fàbregas joined the likes of Puyol, Iniesta, Mata, Arbeloa and Sergio Ramos with his own twitter account! He hasn’t tweeted much yet, just thanking all those following him, and saying that he’d try and keep us updated.
You’ll notice that I didn’t include Xabi Alonso on the list of La Roja players with twitter account above, because up to yesterday, he had only tweeted once. But we finally got some action yesterday, with a retweet. He asked, “is it the original Trufas (truffles) Arbeloa?” in both English and Spanish! What? No Basque?
Which brings us on to Álvaro Arbeloa, who was quite busy yesterday on twitter.
There was of course the trufas issue. Álvaro was asked why he was appraising the trophy, and he said it was to make sure that it was the real one. And then when asked why he is called “trufas,” he said it was a long story (we don’t care Álvaro, we want to know!!!), and then later said that Xabi is the real one!
And then there was the Coca Cola. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that Álvaro had promised that he would stop drinking Coca Cola for a year if Spain won the World Cup. And later on, he said that if Xabi started tweeting, he would add one more year to that! Well, Xabi is on twitter now, and tweeting, so Álvaro had this to say: “two years without Cola Cola could be very hard…”
And if all that wasn’t amusing enough, he also revealed that he loves Julia Roberts and the movie Pretty Woman! This was in response to a tweet by former Liverpool teammate Ryan Babel that he was watching that movie. This in turn prompted Liverpool’s fisio Chris Morgan to ask Álvaro if Pepe had made him watch Dexter yet. And then came the best tweet: Álvaro said yes, that he’s seen the first two seasons, and that Dexter looks like Xabi!
He also found the time to say one more thing to Ryan Babel before signing off: he sent him regards from himself, Xabi, Pepe and Fernando Torres, aka the former/current Liverpool players! Adorable!
All this makes me love the team so much more!
