By the way, AD, my kid's quite the little soccer player too.
Kids who sing from the stands don't count as soccer players.
Menyak's a big soccer fan too, so Cu might wind up in BIG trouble!
I'm going to be in big trouble too if menyak happens to be a Chelsea or Real Madrid fan.
I'm a big Artificial Madrid fan.
Ah you mean Atletico Madrid then.
I don't get it...
But I'll try! So, here's my guess... Atletico Madrid was Madrid's first soccer team (as if one were enough!) but then a bunch of dudes got together and said, "Hey, those blokes are all bloody wankers! We'll show them, righ-o, guvnah, we're the REAL Madrid we is!" (I don't know why a Spanish soccer team would speak like limeys, but roll with me here). So, a new soccer (ah-hem... oh yes, FOOTBALL) team is born and they are the new Madrid, the awesome Madrid, the REAL Madrid. They are what the Yankees are to Baseball (prior to 2001), they are what Cadillacs are to cars (prior to 1970), they are what Chalupas are to Taco Bell (yo quiero!). They, pardon the pun, 'bend it like Beckham.' Or, more appropriately, they have Beckham (I think
) and therefore are constantly setting the bar for other teams to 'bend it.'
