Monday's Music: Motorhead - The Ace of Spades

Dark Monday for Spain and for everybody that lives there with the announcement of the Government that we have to be rescued (a loan and a triumph it's how it called the bag o'shit we have as president), so to make the story short, if you live in Spain and cannot play poker you may want to learn as it will be the only way to get income in the following 20 years.  That or become politician, banker or member of the Royal Family. So, have fun!

Monday's Music: Jerry Lee Lewis - Great balls of fire

Time flies and here we are starting a new week. This week I come with one of the best rockers ever, "The Killer". Whatever I say about him would not be enough so I prefer not to say a thing and let him talk by himself in one of the greatest songs and probably one of the most famous, Great Balls of Fire:

Day trip to Heusden and Den Bosch. Part I

I survived to last weekend's party in Bilbao and I am back to continue talking about the Easter holidays, a bit late but as we say in Spanish, better late than never. On Easter Sunday we were thinking on going to Amsterdam but we thought it better and we decided to go to the south. Raffaella Carrá taught us that to make love properly you must go to the South, so there we went, to Noord Brabant, that even if is the North Brabant (there is a South Brabant in Belgium) it is in the South of The Netherlands.

Final of the King's Cup. Let's go Athletic!

Again here to talk about other thing not directly related to the topic of the blog, that somehow I don't know anymore what it is. Today is the final of the Spanish Cup (Copa del Rey is called -King's Cup-, I prefer to call it Generalisimo's Cup, so funny I am) and I am in my beloved Bilbao to enjoy the atmosphere.

I have gone out to hunt a suit for a wedding I am assisting this summer and the city is just great! It is sunny and warm and there are tons of people dressed in red and white, the colors of the team. We are playing against FC Barcelona, they are supposed to be very good, let's see what happens! I hope we win but I must admit that is pretty difficult.

Monday's Music: Guns N'Roses - Paradise city

Monday! And I haven't posted these past days not for laziness but because I had been on Holiday in Italy. In Florence more exactly. Despite the weather -some times warm as hell's fire and some times rainy as Indian monsoons-, the earthquake that hit the north of the county, mafia's terrorist attacks and my expired passport we made it to go and get back. We didn't feel the earthquake because it hit at night and we were too tired to feel anything but a friend that lived next to the B&B we were staying at said that she woke up really frightened as the house was shaking violently. We had a really great time and I will post about it in the future, I am still busy with the Easter holidays!! I hope this week I can spend some time writing about it to get up to date as soon as possible.

Monday's music: Banda Jachis - La bandera de la libertad

Monday! This week Thursday is public holiday in The Netherlands and my company has given us for free also Friday which makes me very happy! It is some kind of Catholic day that I don't really care about, for me it is enough to know that I don't have to work :)

This song brings me back to the end of the 90s, when I was a little guy discovering the wide world of Bilbao. I remember going with some friends to a pirate radio station in the city, the Irola Irala Irratia (Radio Irola from Irala more or less). Some Sunday afternoons we went there and saw how people did their programs, mostly talking about punk, anarchism and other stuff like that, with lots of music on them, and there is where I discovered great bands such as this one.

It could not be, now let's think in the next Cup

It could not be. Athletic was not strong enough yesterday night. We missed a lot of passes giving away the ball lots of times while Atletico de Madrid was very strong in defense, in midfield and in attack. So they had everything to win and so they did. They scored pretty early a brilliant goal and a bit later the second one that was a dead warrant for us, nevertheless we tried thousands of times to break their defense but was like waves hitting the cliffs. The 3-0 came at the end of the match when everything was already decided.

Well, I can only congratulate Atletico de Madrid for their great match and the title. Also for the great gesture they had when they made a corridor for the rival players. I think that in any sport  players should be gentlemen, specially footballers, as thousands of people watch them all around the globe and children take them as example.

In two weeks we are playing the final of the Spanish Cup against Barcelona, another very difficult match so I hope that players learn what they have to learn from this last match and forget what they have to forget.

Now and always, Hup Athletic!
