Argentina Asado ( La Parilla )

This is how things are done in Argentina.

This is a typical scene in Buenos Aires, people food, and tough decisions...

Chorizo OR Chori pan,

1 is the loneliest number that you'll ever do.

Brazil 1, the other team (Croatia) ... losers.

Croatia didn't have a chance as far as the world was concerned, but they did pretty well. Much better than the US team for instance. You would have thought that Brail would have scored more as they got a 8 to 0 score earlier this month in another match, but the game was good on defense, a lot of shots, and exciting.

So I have always found the expression 1 is the lonliest number that you'll ever do... to be quite strange, but then in the context and pentameter of that one song it wraps around pretty nicely.

It kind of makes you want to watch a punk rocker breakdance eh?

3 is the magic number, but not always for you.

3 to 0...

That was the score in the opening match that the USA team recieved vs. the Czech republic. I work a a school across the street from the Czech republic and was ready to throw eggs. ( I heard the coach was upset, well I am upset that the coach is the coach, the team looked sallow and weak. Were they trying to hide behined the monsturous Czech players when a pass was made?


They only took 3 goal shots the whole game, hence they didn´t even try to win, at best they could have tied, what a pitifull effort

Here is a video with the same kids from yesterday´s video raising a flag downtown Buenos Aires at Nueve de Julio.

You can recognize the guy hitting the drum at the end of this video and the fellow raising the flag is in a picture I´m adding a little later. I´m busy today, like I said, I gotta get going.

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!
