Athletic Bilbao: A Study In Career Unfairness

Athletic Bilbao’s Aitor Ocio demonstrates why your parents were right about paying attention in school. Images via Athletic Bilbao.

Seriously, Kickettes. Can you believe the injustice in the world today?

The gentleman on the left in the blue shirt studied hard at school and got a job with Athletic Bilbao. Now, they pay him money to sit in a small room instructing semi-naked football players (including previously identified hottie Senor Ocio and pretty pup Igor Martinez (left), dammit) to exercise until they break sweat and their muscles become all solid and bunchy. Matey just gets to sit and watch as the players obey his every word, before reaching out to tenderly adjust the sticky pads that are attached to tanned, ripped torsos.

We did not study hard at school. Our weight of our regret is such, it is almost crippling us. If you can stand it, follow the jump for more tanned torso unfairness.

Markel Susaeta is examined. You see?! That guy on the right isn’t even attempting to hide his smugness.

They’re just making Markel cycle and watch TV now! Are you seriously telling us we’re not qualified to do this job?!

Right. We are  soooo qualified to operate in proximity to Xabi Castillo’s  nipples! We’re gonna call our union.

Thanks Becky!

  3. Brianna says:

  4. Little Miss Arsenal says:

    I don’t believe it. A post abt Athletic Bilbao & no Fernando Llorente?! What the fudge guys?!

  5. Chivas says:

    Yes, they are beautiful but WHERE is our recap of today’s third place game and preview of the final?!! And no, not a statistical overview, a hotness one is fine but I’m waiting! :)

  6. Lisa says:

    Hot ballers appreciated by why is there no WC final preview or something? I know this is the weekend but my god, Spain don't play in a WORLD CUP FINAL everyday. For all the hot Spanish ballers you have featured over the years (exhibit A above) this is like Kickette Armageddon. Do it for the 'ballers Kickette! Besides, its too early to drink and I need something to take my mind off the game.

    It's about darn time that I see more of my Athletic bbs on Kickette!


  17. Maral says:

    This is actually what I’m in school for right now, honest…is it bad that I chose the Sports Medicine career path for this exact reason??? :D

  18. soinlove says:

    Those are some buff doctors too.

  19. Alejandra T. says:

    Think they accept volunteers? Sort of like a candy-striper but oodles more enjoyable and much less selfless? Because I’m in. Thank you for making my day with this!

  20. Nikki says:

    Thanks you ladies for introducing me to Markel Susaeta , hot damn , what I wouldn't do to get a piece of that :D !!!!

  21. Rezia says:

    Hahaha. I was thinking of becoming a lawyer but now my mind is made up. I am going to Medical School and becoming a sports doctor instead. Would I be allowed to date patients do you think? What about ogling? Does the College of Physicians frown on that sort of thing?

    Clubs and national teams should hire more girl doctors…starting with ME. I mean seriously, has anyone noticed ONE girl doctor for any of the NT’s in the world cup? It’s damn sexy…erm…I mean sexIST. Was distracted by pecs…

    • shay:] says:

      i totally agree with you. i plan on getting my medical degree when i graduate and try to get a job at one of the clubs;]. but i'v been wondering why there are not any female docs visible, ever haha.

  22. Kaldy says:

    well , I studied extra and extra hard ,, and I ended up becoming an architect ,,, its drawing paper , cement , and bricks is all what I am touching *rolling eyes*

  23. Adriana Valentino says:

    I studied really really hard at school and became an optometrist. I deal with eyeballs all day long as a result. Unfortunately they are not the balls I would like my days to be filled with, sigh.

    Damn it that nerdy science guy in the pic with Markel Susaeta really does look smug doesn't he, the lucky ba***rd.

  24. caitanya says:

    I was originally going to major in sports physical therapy but changed my mind and am now on the nursing path. This post makes me think i should go back to my original plan! :-P But knowing my luck, i’ll end up being a physical therapist at an all-girls boarding school for a bunch of bitchy prepubescent rich brats :-\

    Having said that, i should be the one placing electrodes on the likes of Markel Susaeta!!! :-D hehe

  25. Bepo says:

    OMG, you have discovered my master plan!
    Yes, I want to specialize in sports medicine so I can be in close physical contact with semi-naked football players – and get paid for it! Just ten more years of school before I can start sticking those electrodes! I’ve already got a blue polo shirt ready.

  26. Sara says:

    His abs are skew.

    That is all.

  27. Canna Fan says:

    Senor Aitor Ocio, where have you been all my life? ;) Having said that, I feel like I’m “cheating” on my other obsession, Fabio Cannavaro. Decisions, decisions … lol! On a serious note, do football teams in Europe hire nurses? How do I become licensed there if I am already a nurse here in the US?

  28. Becky says:

    I look forward to this time of year just like it's Christmas ha ha !!


  29. Alessandra says:

    Wow, it just got a million degrees hotter.:P

  30. senora ramos says:

    UGH! maybe i should change those plans on going back to school for another degree in teaching and just move to spain and act like a doctor

  31. Amy says:

    Holy Bejeezus!!!! Aitor Ocio has the most beautiful upper body I have ever seen. Period. The tan, the tattoos, the muscles… Perfecto!!!

  32. sally says:

    *drool* crap… need a new keyboard AGAIN, thanks kickette for making me feel like a drooling 1 year old everytime i come here!

  33. LoveFootballLoveFoot says:

    Well you don't neccesarily have to be a doctor. The lady journalist you just gotta know what to ask because they love to talk about themselves. Especially when they've had a great season. I studied psychology and history if anyone knows of any club who needs one of me let me know. I'll have my passport ready. What I do want to know is… who is that woman that travels with Spain all the time? I've seen her on the bus when they won the eurocopa. On the game against Paraguay I saw Xabi coming up to her and grabbing her face with both his gorgeous hands and giving her a kiss on the cheek after qualifying to the semis.

    I can't see Aitor Ocio's toes, but from the rest of him I can only assume they are goergous. Even his hair is perfect. Seriously, from hair to toes he must be wonderful to look at. I will be give thanks enough to kickette for this MOST WONDERFUL WEBSITE!!!!

  34. SunnyK says:

    Well, well, well…my new favorite team: Athletic Bilwow!

  35. juventina says:

    Holy god. *Pulls out textbooks* I suddenly feel the need to study….

  36. rslkdl says:

    Hot damn. That's it – I'm going back to college. Like, today.

  37. S says:

    Isn't it "Athletic Bilbao"? Since the club was founded by englishmen…

    • senora ramos says:

      i was too destracted by that gorgeous man at the top, but you are right, it’s athletic bilbao (madrid is atletico)

  38. Carolina says:

    Making a B-line for the airport….. Next ticket to Bilbao.. STAT!! haha

  39. Innocenza says:

    I studied hard(ish) in school and I can place ECG leads! All I would have to do is buy a polo shirt and convince everyone I'm SUPPOSED to be touching their nipples! Right? right?

  40. Lisa says:

    six years studying journalism and this is the closest I'm gonna get to a hot shirtless 'baller? I hate my life. Why do I get the feeling the NBA would have got this right and allowed female fans to do this 'job' while televising the whole thing on ESPN.
