Jesús Navas married his longtime girlfriend Alejandra Moral in the Santa María la Blanca church in Los Palacios y Villafranca yesterday! Both Jesús and Alejandra looked beautiful; ¡¡enhorabuena!!
Sergio Ramos, who was also looking fantastic though I expected a bit more color from him, attended the wedding, and tweeted a few photos from it: him and his brother-in-law Carlos, one of the happy couple, and one of him with the novios. Judging by the corsage that Sergio is wearing, maybe he was one of testigos for Jesús. He’s back in his “tierra,” and tweeted “how lovely is love! Long live the newlyweds! Congratulations to my great friend Jesús Navas!!”
Meanwhile, a number of La Roja players are in Vigo, Galicia this weekend to celebrate the wedding of Diego López with girlfriend Iria Otero today. The wedding was held in Pontesampaio, and the reception at the Os Escudos de Vigo hotel.
The day before, Borja Valero carried his suit through the airport (his wife Rocío tweeted that photo), while Álvaro Arbeloa joined up with Borja and Joan Capdevila for a meal.
I find it hilarious that Borja and Álvaro were both wearing James Dean shirts, and Joan’s shirt is very similar as well!
The three of them also managed to joke with each other via twitter. Joan first tweeted one joke which he thought was great: “the professor said to the students, “it rained, what’s the weather like?” The student replied, “a very bad time, professor!!” It doesn’t make sense in English, but it does in Spanish, since the word “tiempo” can mean both “time” and “weather.” And then he tweeted one from Borja: “the curtain opens, and out comes two truffles fighting. What is the movie called? Trufas to furius!!!” If you don’t get it, try saying the last part out loud. Does it sound a bit like “2 Fast 2 Furious?” This prompted a reaction from the trufa himself (according to Xabi), who tweeted, “what a pair!”
And here are the boys on the way to the church today: Borja, Álvaro, Joan and Santi Cazorla.
Along with this photo, Álvaro tweeted something that Joan apparently said: “Diego’s not getting married, on the way back to the hotel…” Meanwhile, Borja tweeted a similar photo and wrote, “on the way to the bodorrio with so many characters… will the groom regret it? I’m sure he will, once he sees us…” I love them all!!!
Here are Álvaro and Carlota looking fabulous at the wedding. They’re providing some serious competition for Xabi and Nagore in terms of perfect lives.
And at the dinner, they continued joking… Álvaro’s tweet says “the wine is beginning to take effect…,” and the joke is another play on words in Spanish, and actually better than some of the other ones. It says, “one man says to another, you’re a very calculating man, no? More or less, why?” “Más” has the sense of both “more” and “plus” (as in adding) in Spanish, while “menos” means both “less” and “minus,” and “por” is “why” and “multiply.”
Meanwhile, Joan’s joke, which he tweeted but Álvaro told, says “the curtain opens and Bob Marley appears, dressed like a nun. What is the movie called? Bob es monja!!” Bob Esponja (literally Bob Sponge) is what SpongeBob SquarePants is called in Spain.
Joan’s face!!!!! I like his tie the best.
And this little item is not worth doing a separate post for, so I’ll just stick it in here: my hopes that Xabi Alonso didn’t buy anything for himself at A&F were sadly dashed, because he came back to Spain wearing this shirt. However, everyone can win if he just removes that shirt.
