Alright, so maybe "decapitation" is a little much. But Sergio Ramos today—on his victory tour after Real Madrid squeaked out a win against Atletico Madrid in the Madrid Derby/Champions League final yesterday—was cruising at a decent pace on Real Madrid's victory bus, likely with little sleep, feeling the flow, when all of a sudden a low-hanging tree branch nearly lopped off his top. Appropriate, maybe, given that "ramas" means branches in Spanish. (Just substitute the O for the… you get it.)
It seems like the Real Madrid captain still maintained his composure, vaguely resembling a swarthy old-time pilot ducking an errant seagull in his open cockpit, and even had a good laugh about it. Victory is one hell of a salve.
Anyway, there were all kinds of shenanigans going on on the bus ride, including the obligatory Queen reference:
And the kissing of a bunch of dirty metal:
Then of course there's the fans chasing down the bus like Real Madrid are the Beatles or something:
(God, it must be so annoying to be an Atletico fan in Madrid right now.)
Despite the fact that Ramos almost lost his head, at least he didn't lose the trophy—like he did last year. Yeesh.
