I am back in Venezuela after the world cup, to a long football hangover. Surprised was I to see
that as I returned my great idol, the reason I love football, Diego Maradona, was coming to
Venezuela as well, as a guest of president Hugo Chavez.Maradona has apparently been offered to
continue as Argentinean national coach, a decision that is undoubtfully controversial, although I
think he has been
- In a video entitled "Knights of Iraq: 6" by the Islamic Front of the Iraqi Resistance's (JAMI), a
participant in the video is seen firing off rounds from a handgun wearing a Zidane shirt. So I
guess these means terrorists also like soccer. Someone needs to find a video of a terrorist wearing
an American football jersey or a baseball jersey quick, before the mindless masses actually begin
to think that.
Perhaps every bookish football supporter has heard of/read the writings of Uruguayan journalist and
poet, Eduardo Galeano. Judging how often his name is dropped among left-wing academic armchair
football "fans" (see SWPL on the subject), he's also becoming the face of football for the growing
body of mostly North American academes who deem football the one acceptable spectacle sport, in
contrast with those "brute expressions of masculine oppression," American gridiron and hockey.
Eduardo Galeano became the talking point when Barack Obama and Hugo Chavez met up in a very
anticipated encounter at the OAS.
Chavez thrust Eduardo Galeano's "The Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage
of a Continent" into the hands of Obama. This of course is a vast improvement from the Venezuelan
president's invocation of the "devil" being present when George W Bush addressed the UN.
If you were to ask Diego Maradona which club he dreams of coaching most, the answer would be
All of them.
The man may say Boca this week and Napoli next, but there will be a club after that...and a
national team after that...and then another one. Suffice it to say, the man just wants to coach
someone, anyone, and if he does, it'll be a dream.
Ok, here you go.. Del Potro and Carlito Tevez, the new
BFFS and Tennis/Football pairing (albeit a sadder version of
Nadal/Casillas) at the O2 Arena in London yesterday at the ATP World Tour Finals. Ya'll know
