Brasil

Brasil is in trouble...big trouble!....in football. I know, a lot of you are not too much into these football things ( according to the lack of success of my Eurofootie - only 29 registered to this day - or is it because only 29 read this mail, hmmm ), but if Brasil can't make it to next year's World Cup finals in Japan, this will mean the end of an era.

No more samba on the field with the ball, no more acrobatic goals scored from every angle, no more fat supporter playing a funny funky instrument in the stadium, and no more gorgeous half naked women in yellow-green shirts dancing madly, no more Brasilian commentator shouting "Gooooooooooooooooo ( 2 minutes later ) ooool do Brasil". And, when Portugal becomes world champion, everybody will say: "Yes, Portugal won, but that was the year Brasil didn't play!" So we will win only half a cup, grrr...Nononono, Come on Brasil, you have to focus now, there's one match left. Everybody sing with me " Brasiill, Lalalalalalalalaaaa..."

Have a nice weekend

For my friend HD from Germany I miss a lot ( my friend, not Germany!! ):
At the recent Olympics, a man was walking through the Olympic village carrying a long pole. A reporter came up to him and asked "Are you a pole vaulter?" The man replied, "No, I'm a German, but how did you know my name was Walter?"
( Hohoho...)

There was this man who won a contest and got one free ticket to the Soccer World Cup. He was so happy, but when he got to the stadium and found his seat he was somewhat disappointed. His ticket was for the last row, and it was way up there. He couldn't see the game, so he began looking around. Close to the field he saw an empty seat, so he decided to go down there. He reached the seat and asked the man next to the unoccupied seat if anyone was seating there. The man replied, "No." So the guy sat down and struck up a conversation. "Who would have a seat right next to the field and not come?!?" The man answers, "Oh, that was my wife's seat." "Where is she?" the guy replied. "She died." "Oh, I'm sorry...don't you have anyone else to come with you, a brother, or friend?" "No, they couldn't come." "Why?" "Because they are at her funeral."
