Don’t care who wins the FIFA 2010 World Cup Finals tonight as long as it’s SPAIN !

Come on David Villa,get the Golden Boot !

Viva Espana !

Refreshing Memories…remembering this Spanish Classic

Remember this…Sing it out Loud tonight as the Spanish Armada sink the Dutch Defence!

(Eddie Seago / Leo Caerts)
Sylvia Vrethammar – 1974/1975All the ladies fell for Rudolph Valentino
He had a beano back in those balmy days
He knew every  time you meet an icy creature
You’ve got to teach her hot blooded latin ways
But even Rudy would have felt the strain
Of making smooth advances in the rain

Oh this year i’m off to Sunny Spain Y Viva Espana
I’m taking the Costa Brava ‘plane Y Viva Espana
If you’d like to chat a matador, in some cool cabana
And meet senoritas by the score, Espana por favor

Quite by chance to hot romance I found the answer
Flamenco dancers are by far the finest bet
There was one who whispered oh hasta la vista
Each time I kissed him behind the castanette
He rattled his maracas close to me
In no time I was trembling at the knee

When they first arrive the girls are pink and pasty
but oh so tasty as soon as they go brown
I guess they know ev’ry fellow will be queuing
to do the wooing his girlfriend won’t allow
but every dog must have his lucky day
that’s why i’ve learnt the way to shout ole


I owned two pairs of black Castenets got back from Spain way back in 1972 by my parents….Just imagine a ten year old trying to imitate the Passionate Senoritas,in their rich red or black gowns,clicking in great rhythm and beat a pair of castenets in each hand..just like Fred Astair’s tap dancing….while they performed their swirling,aggressive ,yet sensous dance….simply could not do so ! 

The World’s going to be painted in Red and Yellow tonight ! 


It’s SPAIN !….just beat Germany 1-0 in the FIFA Semis to meet Netherlands in the Final…Paul, the Octopus in Germany to be eaten for once again predicting the Winner correctly !

The Germans are surely going to eat Paul,their Octopus today !…What an irony ! Their Octopus has always picked the Winner correctly and it  had picked Spain for today’s Semi-Finals v/s Germany !…It predicted right yet again !….and poor Paul is going to die for being right! as the Germans have said they will eat the Octopus if Germany loses !…maybe it may live for a few days more as it may be asked to predict the 3rd Place Winners when the losing semi-finalists,Germany and Uruguay play each other on Saturday,July 10,2010 !

The Spaniards were deserving winners…making regular inroads into the German Defence…In the 73rd minute it was the Spaniard, Carles Puyol who powered in a  great header from a Corner to make it 1-0 for Spain…This was the closing scoreline…. makes it look like it was a close and tight match…it really was not…the Germans ,without Mueller,were not just not themselves…the spark that demolished England in the QFs was missing

Spain should have won 2-0 if Pedro had been unselfish and passed to Torres to score…in fact Pedro was preferred to Torres in the Opening Eleven…and played a brilliant match except for this one selfish moment which denied Spain a second Goal…..Torres was benched and  came in only late in the second half as a substitute 

So on Sunday,July 11,2010 it will be SPAIN v/s NETHERLANDS and whoever wins,the World will see a New World Football Champion…an Eighth Champion

Cheers !
