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!

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 :(

I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
