Football, don't be a kangaroo

<<previous next>>
Uruguay world cup championship, garat kangaroo, street banner Football is the opium of uruguayans, and this is one good example of it. Right in front of the school of engineering of the university, I came across this banner. Translated it reads something like:

"Garat: Don't be kangaroo, and change the exam's time.
Your students"


Uruguay engineering schoolToday, uruguay plays against australia for the world cup classification finals. When the national football team plays for the world cup the country freezes, everybody watches. It's kinda an unwritten law. Seems that some bitter college teacher, named garat, is taking exams at the same time as the match, and students don't take it at all well. They are right to complain!

since the blog is in English i will write you in shakeaspeare´s language.
I didnt see the match but for what i heard it was difficult for Uruguay to beat Australia. (Half time for each time)Anyway i hope uruguay wins in Sidney, or at least came with a tied result :)

it was a crappy boring game, the referee missed at least two penalties for uruguay. Ozzies ended up with three yellow cards. Forlan had to leave early the game on an injure.

anyway, scoring one goal in sidney is the difference, we can loose 2-1 and still make it to the world cup

I wish our trip had been last week so we could have seen this match! We're coming next weekend from Canada and really want to see "el partido de futbol". Do you know if there is a match at the Estadio Centenario on Saturday or Sunday (November 19 or 20?).

yeah, it's a pity you missed this game, there will be a match this weekend on "el centenario" for the local championship, but it wont be the same :(
