Dean Wormer told Mr. Dorfman that fat, drunk and stupid was no way to go through life. Losing soccer tournaments isn’t either at least if you play in Argentina.
Injury was added to insult after Huracan lost to Godoy Cruz in the Copa Argentina and their fans attacked the players as they showered following practice.
A group of furious fans disguised in masks bum rushed the locker room, beat up the players and stole their possessions. Several of their cars were also vandalized.
South American fans are known for their fanaticism but beating up players is usually handled by other players or drug cartels. Supporters threatening players is more of an Italian move. Hooligans punching horses is more of an English thing. Robbing players is the signature move of Liverpool and Naples.
Argentina is on the verge of not making the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa after being molested by Brazil and Paraguay in the South American qualifiers. Maradona is responding to this national crisis by taking off to Italy in order to lose five kilos. The Deuce respects doctor-patient privilege but Dr. Nick should probably explain how losing five kilos will improve Argentina’s chances of making the World Cup. He won’t gain in strategy what he loses in weight. “Hi everybody! It’s your window to strategery gain!”
Bolivia or Colombia seem like his kind of stress-relieving countries more than Italy. Then again he didn’t have a problem getting the marching powder in Naples when he lived there. Have fun watching the finals on the Pampas, Argentina. It’s not all bad. Carlos Tevez can get back in the studio next summer and bang out more hits like this.
It’s been known that soccer legends Diego Maradona and Pele have never gotten along. However Maradona, who is currently the Argentina national team manager, has taken it to a new level by dropping some racial bombs on Pele and players of African descent. There’s some harsh language here in translation but watch as he unloads on Argentine TV.
The reporter doesn’t hesitate to get involved in the hate fest either. The racism gauntlet has been thrown, Spain. Can’t wait to see how they respond.
