  1. grande Capitan.you are the best forever
    thank you una.this site is one of my fav sites

  2. Five hundred kilos?

  3. Being Iker Casillas was actually NOT the guarantee that he would know the answer to the question about Iker Casillas. One of those asked him how much did he weigh at birth and Iker said to go ask his mom, lol.

  4. oh, thank you for this! i was waiting for this one. :)

    (incidentally, i am amazed by the number of them who have never tried mescal, though i can see why. i went to a mescal bar in mexico city and i think i lost four hours of my life! conversely, i’m also amazed in a different way (a good way) that so many of them know the unemployment numbers in spain — most celebrities in north america, at least, are so far removed from that sort of thing and live in such a different world that they have no idea about things like that. you can also tell which ones have kids and which ones do not by the way they answer the spongebob question, jajaja!)

    i love that he doesn’t have a cleaning woman. i love his answer to the sex question (he’s exactly right). i love his exasperation at some of the sillier questions, hee. i was kind of shocked that he chose the west wing (i am trying to picture iker actually watching one of president bartlet’s long, rambling walk-and-talk speeches, let alone understanding it, and it’s giving me fits of giggles). i think he’s fibbing about not knowing the last time he cried, though. and possibly about not knowing the name of mou’s dog, too, but i forgive him for that one. :)

  5. Darn, I figured that he would say the sex question was too personal. Unlike, say, Xavi.

    He doesn’t know the name of Mou’s dog? (shakes head) Well, Iker, no wonder you two fell out.

    He doesn’t remember the last time he cried because there are too many of them (and I love him for it).

    Five hundred kilos = proportional to its body?? LMAO!!!!

  6. Iker is hilarious and grouchy!

  7. Ha ha ha. I was pleasantly surprised to see this since I figured there would be no more after yesterday’s final. Thanks again for all your hard work Una. I hope that you too take a well deserved vacation like the boys. And I hope that they prove everyone wrong and win next year. I am curious if there will be major changes in the current team.

  8. Haha Iker :)

  12. Hahaha, this is hilarious!!

    As always, thanks for taking the time to translate and share news about the team, Una! besos from london X
