Football and Folly Reina

The new BPL (Barclays Premier League) season is back and the household is extremely excited.  Despite having the World Cup just 2 months ago, we have been soccer starved and it was the perfect weekend for the league to start again.

Our namesakes were in contention to feature. Reina and Torres =)

It was not the most ideal start though. The new boy Joe Cole got a little too excited to kick start his career with the Reds and saw red with an over enthusiastic turned reckless challenge that left his poor team handicapped for more than half the game's playing time.

As usual, Reina was in top form, blocking and making some remarkable saves that would make any hooman or dog proud. Until that moment of folly, when he fumbled the ball into his own net. I can totally imagine myself in his boots. Too many a time has momentum dragged me further into situations or positions where I never intended to be.

Torres is still coming back from an injury. We're just hoping that he gets back to his best as like Reina, he is one of our key players. =)

We're just glad that the football season is back. Long weekend nights in the foreseeable future!

Fellow doggie and hooman friends, are you fans of the BPL too? If so, which team are you on?

Hi, Reina and Torres!
Manchester United! Of course because they have now our Chicharito (little pea) and we hope he will be a success!
Kisses and hugs

This is terrible to say but I've never even seen a soccer game but that Chicharito sure is a cutie.

We heard him cursing and swearing when Reina "scores" the own goal.
