Uruguay, the legend of Maracana

<<previous next>>
Uruguay maracana worldcup finalThere's an uruguayan legend that goes that once upon a time a football team coming from little little Uruguay had to play the final of the football world cup championship against big big favorite brazil, in brazil, in the brand new stadium Maracana, specially built for the world cup.
The story tells the stadium was full of brazilian green and yellow (verdeamarello;) supporters, for the final match. Brazil beign big time favorite scored, and the first half of the game ended up 1-0, brazil above uruguay. The brazilians were so confident that they took the match for granted, even when in the second half the little uruguayans scored, and the match got even. This was no real stress for the brazilians since a tie was enough for achieving the championship.

Until suddenly...little uruguayan team, coming from nowhere scored for the second time. The story goes that the time froze, and around 200,000 brazilian supporters got real quiet, that you could actually hear a small bunch of uruguayan supporters screaming fanatically.

Despite all the efforts made by the big shot brazilian team, the match remained as it was, and little little uruguay took the world cup home, leaving a big country openjawed.

This is a bedtime story that pappas tell their sons in uruguay. Scholars cannot achieve consensus on whether this actually ever happened, some say it took place in brazil in 1950.

I understand that brazilian pappas don't ever tell this story to their children. Nowadays noone in brazil knows the story of little david uruguay, who beated big goliat favorite brazil in the football world championship of 1950.

Sad side effects of this spell is that a big part of little little uruguay's population got stuck in time when that happened, remain there, and lost the hability to look forward in time.

Por lo baboso me huele porteño !
Estos no contentos con la hermosura que es su propio país, insisten en adueñarse de todo lo que les gusta o les trae fama, como niño chico en juguetería. El tango "ES ARGENTIIINO" y te repiten la mentira hasta el hartazgo con total impunidad, asi que en el resto del mundo el tango "NO ES URUGUAYO TAMBIEN", les duele que Gardel era uruguayo y que La Cumparsita tambien, les duele no tener playas decentes entonces construyen mansiones ridículas en sus veleidades de señor feudal inglés, donde?.......No en balde la guia de viajes Frommer's los describe como unos italianos que hablan español y que sueñan ser ingleses, y que la diferencia entre ellos y los montevideanos, es que te diran que son millonarios, cuando viven al dia, y por nuestra parte diriamos que vivimos al dia cuando somos millonarios. Que se convenzan de una vez, NADIE LOS QUIERE porque ellos no quieren a nada más que a ellos mismos. Y perdonen los que tan bien llevan este sitio, pero a este veterano le cuesta aguantar tanta majadería.

Vergüenza deberia darle a el que puso el comentario.. Sea Argentino o de cuqluier otro pais.

Las buenas cosas nunca se olvidan, y el "Maracanazo" fue, es y sera siendo recordado por el mundo entero.

Que les den por culo a todos.
Ni Venezuela ni Uruguay han ganado nada en la vida.

Solo el puto Chavez y una vinotinto que da vergüenza, y los uruguayos unas niñas guapas (solo para follar)pero hombres tontos.

En cuanto a los argentinos, una economía de mierda y viviendo de las contribuciones del petróleo de chavez. Solo le queda Messi, sin nombrar al drogadicto de Maradona. Que tan bien les den
