It’s been a couple weeks since Spain won Euro 2008. Keeper Pepe Reina (Liverpool) is probably still waking up in the middle of the night yelling, screaming and scaring the shit out of little kids and old people.
The players and coaches weren’t the only ones to get their party on. I don’t know what airline the Spanish national team uses but American sports teams need to find an American equivalent. Here’s video (via Who Ate All The Pies) of the flight attendants getting down for the team. Just skip to :22 for the PG.
I don’t know if I can accept this or any Macarena. They just don’t seem like they really mean it. In the words of Ice Cube, “I can do it, put your ass into it“. We need a dirty, grimy, freak nasty strip club version. Then again can the Macarena ever be sexy? I just don’t see it.
I do know one thing. These troopers put those mom shorts-wearing Southwest flight attendants to shame in spite of their half-ass Macarenain’.
It’s the one thing when sports organizations talk about everyone working towards one goal from the owner to the support staff. It’s another thing to see them do it. France was embarrassed in the first round of the Euro, Patrick Viera fought with his teammate Patrice Evra and manager Raymond Domenech proposed to his girlfriend after France’s elimination to deflect attention from their abject failure. However we’re not just talking about the players and the manager. It looks like everyone in the FFF including the coach driver bought into losing as a team.
This is, perhaps, the largest foosball table ever created. From the looks of the website, it was made by some German Dutch guys, here’s what they have to say about their pride and joy:
Reclame stunt voor Amstel Bier, tijdens de finale van het Europese voetbalkampioenschap. Aan de tafel kunnen 2 complete elftallen spelen. De tafel is geheel demontabel en wordt in 6 flightcases vervoerd.
This, roughly translated, means “Please enjoy our fucking gigantic-ass table”. You actually would need to have two complete football teams to even attempt to play this sucker which was originally created for an Amstel Beer commercial during the European Championship League Finals. Good luck getting enough friends together to actually make this competitive…but with enough alcohol, i’m sure attempting to play this would be fun as hell. Someone here in the states needs to make this.
Here’s another picture so you can understand the enormity of this thing.
“If it wasn’t for us, you’d all be speaking German! Singing ‘Deutschland, Deutschland über alles…’”
The Swiss have always claimed to be neutral in international affairs and banking. They try to assuage our suspicions by inundating us with images of that slutty, foul temptress Swiss Miss. However they’ve finally overplayed their hand.
They may have gone a bit far in showing their loyalty by bringing back the good old days of the Third Reich. A Swiss television station ran the subtitles to the Nazi Germany anthem while playing the current German anthem before Germany played Austria in the Euro.
“It is an inexcusable error,” said an employee in charge of the subtitling service for the satation, SRG, though he added it was the fault of two young editors.
Perhaps they were just following orders, Herr Employee.
