Viva Argentina! Viva Deportes! Viva Le Pac Man!

Muy Sr. Mio,

Thanks for listening, reading, and all the fan mail.
TITLE: The title of this post is regarding the 2-1 World Cup victory of first match played in
Cote d’Ivoire.
SPORTS: Nadal is the only guy who can beat mister unbeatable, and beats him good.
Pac Man Mondays: TUNE IN every Monday (everyday really) and play Pac Man this Morning!

Here is a video I took at the 9 de Julio oblisko after I saw the game at the academy of Recoleta on a huge screen with about 40 friends.

Another note... about the game.

Nobody will remember the brave Ivorians who battled hard against the Argentinians when the World Cup is over. In the World Cup you have to create chances and score goals to be successful. Statistics will show that Cote d’Ivoire had a lot of the play but the bottom line is they lost the game.

They now have a few days to get it right on the pitch and be prepared for the Dutch on Friday. That is a must win game especially as the Dutch beat Serbia and Montenegro today.

It would be very tough I suppose but in the Group of Death there are no easy games.

MORE SPORTS: Rafael "Rafa" Nadal Parera (born June 3, 1986) is a Spanish tennis player. He is the nephew of former F.C. Barcelona footballer Miguel Ángel Nadal. He is currently the world's No. 2 male tennis player and was the first man since Boris Becker to reach this ranking in his teenage years.

Nadal plays with a huge topspin and his quickness on the court allows him to return almost every ball. His conditioning allows him to stay sharp, even after he has played for several hours. He is also very strong in counterattacks.

Although Nadal plays with his left hand, he actually is right-handed. When he was younger, his uncle and coach, Toni Nadal, decided that his two-handed backhand would benefit from a strong right arm, so he taught Rafael to play with his left. [1]

Nadal's current clay-court winning streak (after defeating Roger Federer 1-6 6-1 6-4 7-6(4) in the final of the 2006 French Open) stands at 60 consecutive matches, the longest clay court winning streak among men in the Open Era. Nadal had previously shared the record at 53 with Guillermo Vilas. When he held this record he was still a teen. Chris Evert holds the record (among men and women) at 125 matches.

Pac Man Mania!
