Ah, we await no longer for it’s finally here. I should be jumping up and down, filled with joy watching fit men in colored jerseys running after a sole ball from one end to the other attempting to make their own HISTORY! However, I’ve lost the LUV for footie fever. It hasn’t been the same. In actuality, I don’t favor any team/nation. I actually am, let me humbly admit a LIVERPOOL FC fan, but I haven’t been a loyal one this past year. I haven’t been following their games or news as it frustrates me to see them struggle this season. I started to lose faith when LFC decided to let Xabi Alonso go. I believe he is an influential player. Look at him now, he is playing for the national team. His time at Liverpool & his natural skills has caught the eyes of the national coach etc. That was not the only reason for LFC’s downfall. P.O.L.I.T.I.C.S is the major culprit. It doesn’t help, when you over power others.

So back to WC’10, it’s been a lackluster event so far. (Maybe it’s just me, as you age beautifully you start to lose the interest in some things like FOOTBALL!) I don’t know how the others see it. Tell me! But it’s no secret that I’m rooting for Spain, the reasons being I LOVE Spain because of its vibrant culture & beautiful people. Yes NOTHING to do with football. Although I used to follow Real Madrid, until I lost interest once again. I want Spain to win, Torres, being a LFC player, to win and Fabregas to win just because he is HOT (that’s just a dumb reason, but who cares. You’d have to admit that he is one gorgeous dude!). I may root for Spain, but I doubt that they’ll reach the final. I guess it’s going to be an ALL South American FINALE. Do I need to mention the teams? I think not!

As you can see, or guess by now that I’m not much of a footie @ world cup fan. I guess I’ve been more of an F1 fan these days, McLaren to be exact. McLaren all the way, no matter the driver racing the fabulous race cars! I’m praying that this year will be the year for McLaren although they’ve got a tough fight in their hands in the form of the Red Bull team. RB has been totally transformed, all of a sudden they’ve been performing real well, grabbing the pole day in and day out. Must be the water they’re drinking (pun intended)! Hopefully, McLaren will have some surprises in the bag! I do hope to catch the 2nd street race of the season, tonight @ Valencia, Spain. Ahh, Spain again…& not because of Alonoso, Fernando Alonso…shish!

Spain…once more…..sigh! What’s with me & Spanish men? I don’t have an answer to that! =)

Talking about Spanish men, there’s one in action in the land of the Queens. Yes, it’s Rafael Nadal, reigning Roland Garros Champ (his 5th title) & former Wimbledon Champ (’08). He’ll be fighting / raging like a bull to win this years grass court title. It’s not impossible for a Spaniard to that at the least favorite court. But Nadal has proven it wrong. He has done it & will aim to win many more grass court events! Vamos Nadal!

So with so much sporting events in the calendar, should I be blamed for my lack of interest in the World Cup?

If you’re a fan of Torres & LFC, listen to this.

It’s boiling hot out there!

Well, it definitely is in the F1 world. Not only on the tracks but off track too. Not only between Massa & Alonso but a much more controversial issue between two established F1 teams, Ferrari & McLaren.

The McLaren-Ferrari Saga aka F1 Spy scandal aka Stepneygate, is just getting hotter and hotter especially after team McLaren escaped penalties due to lack of evidence. The Prancing Horse must be red with fury after hearing the outcome and I believe will be working night and day to find proof of stolen data being used by the silver arrows.

It is claimed that the team in red was sabotaged in one of their European races. Is there a possibility that the 3-pointed star team has been sabotaged as well? Could it be due to ones dissatisfaction with his employer let him to such act? It has been said that both of the accused wanted to use the information once they leave for a new team. Therefore, no evidence can be found on the McLaren race car.

I believe that the guilty should be punished, and I personally hope Ron Dennis’s team is intelligent enough not to steal and use the Ferrari data. It would be the dumbest and lowest act on Earth to be made by humankind. No matter how many times the red team have used sly tactics to win races and championship. It is an act not to follow! I pray to God, McLaren is honest enough to win races fairly no matter what Massa claims about Alonso’s driving style at the last European GP ;-p

Ironic, isn’t it? Weren’t the prancing horses once were the fave’s of Bernie E? Schumi isn’t there any longer, so the table’s turned. Now they’re claiming that McLaren is in favor. Hmmmm … all because of Hamilton, I guess. The future British World Champion, the first black F1 driver to win the Driver’s Championship etc … Whatever!

**************************************

In the football world, things are heating up between Liverpool and Manure over the availability of Gabriel Heinze. Who will end up the winner in this transfer talk? This team is accusing that team of conducting illegal talks, the latter denies of such claims. We will just have to wait and see after Heinze decided to take legal advice over his exit from Old Trafford. Obviously, the red devil will fight tooth and nail to stop the Argentinian defender from going to the Kop.

 

See any similarities between these sporting teams? Ferrari = Red Devils vs McLaren = LFC

Calm, cool & collected! My job’s done, it’s all yours now!

[LFC vs Chelsea at Anfield, Champions League 2nd leg, May 2007]

This is the third time in a row LFC have lost to Arsenal. It all began last year, a match held at the Emirates Stadium, followed by their lost last week at Fortress Anfield and recently at the the same venue. It is a shame to be kicked around the field and to have let in 5 goals in the early minutes of the 2nd half of play. Oh dear, the defense must be rocky & the offense must have lost their mojo.

So, what’s left? Champion’s League & the Premiership. However, Manure are already in the lead with Chelsea second, and are also going through a rocky road. LFC not far behind, but Arsenal is breathing down their necks! Will Rafa be buying any players & who will be off loaded from the Red side of the Mersey? We will have to wait and see. That’s FOOTBALL to you and me & SOCCER to the Americans.

News from the hot tarmac:

Alonso has his seat fitting at McLaren in preparation for his 1st testing in a McLaren a week from today after attending the McLaren launch on Mon the 15th. Humm, can’t wait to see him in silver overalls and racing the silver arrow to the checkered flag! Let’s see more wins from McLaren this year and hope that Alonso will bring home the Constructors as well as the Driver’s trophy to McLaren Tech Centre at Woking, England.

So cross your fingers & pray there will be no glitches subject to any mechanical failure.

I can’t deny that the RED outfit suits him ;-( . We won’t forget all the challenges and great & crazy maneuvers you’ve made in the silver arrow as it would often make me cringe in anticipation to see you win.

I have been experiencing writer’s block of late, hence the hiatus. I do hope, if time permits, to blab and pour out my thoughts once I am able to get a hold of my life. So much is expected of me, however, I am afraid I won’t be able to accomplish them all.

Time will come and go, it will not halt even for a millisecond. Are you ready to face the days, months and year ahead of you? Should you take it easy? It reminds me, my birthday is approaching, yet I am not prepared for it. No I’m not holding a birthday party nor do I want to celebrate it. I do not know if I want to be reminded about it. What it means to me is age is catching up, however there is so little I have done in this world. I have not accomplished certain things in life! For instance I have always wanted to work for the UN and also being actively involved in a volunteer group, although I had a short stint at WWF (Wild life and not wrestling unless you’re thinking of wrestling with the orang utans, not to that either!). So, yes. I would say that at the moment I would have to find time to help heal this world.

*sigh*

p/s I hate subtitles. Can’t we do something about them? It irritates me as I would end up reading them instead of listening to the dialogue. I think I’m quite proficient in my English, so I have no problem understanding what has been said but I can’t seem to control my eyes. Urgh…. HELP!
