Andres Iniesta and the Bear

So, our very own Andres Iniesta is making quite a name for himself as a pitchman. He’s on air, pitching a television football package in a sequence of brilliant advertisements. It’s apparently a real bear, but we’re told that Carles Puyol is in the background, in case the bear gets a bit frisky with the future of our midfield.

Here are the videos, and they are brilliant. We’re posting them here for posterity, so that when people want to have an “Awwwww!” moment, they can come here:

In my fantasy life, I’m a Barca-crazed contributor over at Barcelona Football Blog. In my real life, I’m a full-time journalist at the Chicago Tribune, based in Chicago, Illinois.


  1. You’re right Lev because mourinho would use his negative bullshit tactics again and try to stifle us and nick a goal. The only difference is I don’t think he has the players to do it now and the madrid fans would go mental if they were made watch that kind of super negative football.

    On Ares0 it will be an easy win because god love them they will try to play a bit of football against the team that are setting new standards in football every week now and we will destroy them. Already have three 100 euro bets on with friends that we will win by at least three over the two legs, easy money.

    Verdict, I am happy, very happy.

    1. haha, just 90min after the draw you’ve already put 300 euros on Barca? How much will it be in 2 months?
      I suppose your friends are all die-hard Arsenal fans but somehow didn’t see the ManUtd-Arsenal match, right? 🙂
      Or they saw it through rainbow-coloured eyeglasses…

    2. Die hards all the way, they genuinely believe they will win but thats what being a fan is all about I suppose. The number I will bet ( and win ) is in direct proportion to the amount of stupid arse0 fans I come across.

  2. I am anticipating FCK to trash Chelsea in one of those legs. People underrate this black horse and we know very well they could cause the biggest upset.

  3. I break my week long not posting(re: vicsoc’s post) to share the Arsenal joy. But lets not brag, the matches still have to be played.

    I’d love an EE-Us CL Final just like I’d love a Cubs-Sox series. I’d love it if we win, and I’d hide under a rock if we lost.

    If we beat EE at the end of the season in the league, I’d be scared to face them in the CL. We could go 2-1 against them in the year but the press would claim Mourinho was a mastermind, genious, big game winner, etc. I’d much love Lyon to knock them out again 😀

    1. My understanding is that a manita (little hand) is a term used in Spanish football for winning 5-0 (five finger=five goals).

  4. I don’t see what Greece Barca did wrong? As per the guidelines, he didn’t use foul language, or slurs, no solicitation or thread spamming. The only thing I can gather would be that Kxevin felt he explicitly had intentions of provoking other commenters or the writers of FCBlog. Which is very subjective and personally I think it would be a jump.
    I understand that anyone can have a bad day and that Kxevin does this for the love of Barca and not because he gets paid or he owes us anything, however I come here because Kxevin is a major part of this blog and I enjoy his reviews and I’m hoping that he does the right thing by this blog and comes back with an Espanol review.

  5. I think Kxevin is just a tad quick tempered and really stands by his journalistic integrity. I remember a while back I pointed out that he seemed to have a fondness for Henry and got a terrible rollicking too but what about it ? Hope he comes back soon too.

    1. But, what we are discussing are not facts that can be disputed or found true or false, … it’s people’s opinions. I applaud Kxevin’s enthusiasm for the team and his opinions of the players but I thought the reason for this blog is to discuss opinions and if they differ, it’s an opportunity to flesh out your argument?

  6. Yes you can make your argument and state your opinion but the problem arises when you try to tell kxevin what his opinion or views on a player or subject is, if that makes sense. In fairness that would wind up a bishop.

  7. I’m not sure. I think if you said to Iniesta go out and be Xavi I’m sure he could. I can’t see what skill he doesn’t have. I watched him play against Scotland at Hampden and he was Xavi. They are both priceless.

    Still think Xavi should win the Ballon d’Or.
