We have a chat thread :D!!!

:woohoo:

Ok, Here's my day :D

I had a crappy day, I got my pants wet in the morning going to school thanks to some stupid driver :mad: and I almost get a cold cause of my wet pants.
I had 2 test today, History, about Greece btw, and Maths about Geometry, the first one was pretty easy, I thought it was going to be harder. It was ok
Maths was awful I didn't know much and Besides the only thing I knew It was baad Well I don't care right now! I needed to relax and do nothing :lol: :p
It rained the whole day long
We need it, So it wasn't that bad! :shrug:

:wavey: Have a great time in Vina Alonso-it sounds like you need a break after your day today.

Nicofan-you have a great Memorial Day weekend too! I won't be here for the first few days of RG but I will be able to get ESPN2 coverage so I can keep up to date.

At first...great idea this thread NicoFan!! :yeah:

Thanks! I like the pictures with Safin they made in Hamburg. But it isn´t all rigth with Tommy H at the moment. I don´t know if he plays RG or not. :sad:

Btw - Wish you all a great (Memorial Day) weekend! We had a public holiday yesterday. And today i have a day off too. :yawn:

NicoFan
05-26-2006, 10:00 AM
Alonso have a great time in Vina! Lucky you - at the beach!

Sparko have a great time on your holiday weekend - glad you can get ESPN2 coverage!

TommyB - I knew that Tommy H had tests done and they weren't good. But when I read the news no one knew what was wrong. Any updates?

TommyB.
05-26-2006, 10:56 AM
I doesn´t know anything about this blood test. Tommy H travelled to Paris but he isn´t 100% okay. I haven´t much hopes for him at Roland Garros.

Now it´s time for Chile vs. Croatia...but be careful with the weather today. ;)

05-26-2006, 01:17 PM
I guess that NicoFan was in a thread mood again :lol:

Alonso! you're so lucky!! have a great time in Viña!!

Sparko you too, I'm sad, everyone have long weekends except me :o .. and I really really need it, I'm practically sleep here at work :rolleyes: and the worst thing is that I've to be here for 9 hours more :mad:

NicoFan
05-26-2006, 01:33 PM
I'm soooo sorry Kid! :hug: Hope you get some sleep this weekend.

:lol: I was in a thread making mood, but we really do need a chat thread.

And hey Kid - I watched La Fea Mas Bella last night - and Lety was trying to decide between Don Fernando o su papa. And it ended with her calling that guy at the company. I know she doesn't do anything, but still was like :eek: And the previews for today didn't show either Lety or Don Fernando so couldn't tell what was going to happen.

kidnicky
05-26-2006, 02:11 PM
oh I need to ask to my mom about that part in La Fea mas bella and then I'll know more about it :p

Poor Kid! And caffiene doesn't affect you so that would do no good...You must go to bed early tonight! :zzz: No Am Idol to keep you up this time ;) And I do have long weekend but much of it will be spent cleaning my mom's windows (and she has a large house :lol: )

kidnicky
05-26-2006, 05:16 PM
oh yes there's no Am Idol tonight and well I've to see the good side that the boys lost 'cause I won't have to wake up tomorrow at 6 am and my father was thinking to go to buy groceries when I come back today after the gym and you know that not in a million years I'd be able to do such thing :lol: so I guess tomorrow would be better ... not excited about that though :p

oh Sparko, cleaning windows is one of the chores that take you a lot lot lot of time, good luck for that!

And I didn't even try to drink coffe, that just would make me sleep even more :lol:

NicoFan
05-27-2006, 12:36 AM
Hey is there anyone here on Nico's forum that understands this World Cup stuff?

I decided to root for Spain.

How many games do they have to play before they make it to Germany? And do they play all over Europe beforehand? And once they make it to Germany, how many games will they have to play before they make the final?

And did I pick a good team? I picked them because I like their colors. ;) :lol:

I hope you mean soccer NicoFan. ;)

Spain played 12 games before they qualified to Germany. 10 games round robin (group 7) against Serbia and Montenegro, Lithuania, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina and San Marino.

Finally Spain became the 2nd place behind Serbia and Montenegro. So they must went to a play-off (first leg, return match) against Slovakia...Slovakia took the 2nd place at group 3. At home Spain won 5:1 and out of town 1:1.

At the World-Cup Spain plays against Ukraine, Tunisia and Saudi Arabia in group H. In this group you must take place 1 or 2 to qualify for R16. If Spain win this they come to quarter final, then semifinal and final at the end.

I think Spain can reach the quarter final...but it´s only a tip. :)

:lol: Yes, I mean soccer (futbol en espanol). :lol:

TommyB you know everything. Gracias... :hug:

I thought it all started in June - I'm late here.

I watched a show this week that previewed some of the teams and one of the guys said he thought Spain had one of the best teams, but usually they are one of the best, but never win anything in the end because they never seem to work well as a team. But he thought that this year they would finally get it together because their coach is someone who could bring them together.

Now I have to find a club here in NY that will show Spain's matches. They only really show England and some of the South American teams on regular TV. If I want to see the others, I have to go to certain clubs around the city and then pay to see the matches. But that's fun going out so I don't mind.

I wish I could go to Europe to see it - I was in Europe the summer of Euro 2004, and it was a lot of fun going to the bars at night and watching the games. Especially in England where everyone had their faces painted with their teams colors. (Although I first I thought they were scary... :lol: ... because I didn't know what was going on and didn't know why these people with painted faces were running through the streets yelling and screaming. :lol: )

(I'm also going to root for England and Argentina - I think Chile is in it too so I'll look for them also).

TommyB.
05-27-2006, 02:19 PM
Oh no i don´t know anything. ;) But i love soccer...next to tennis!

It´s true that they are one of the best teams. The top favorite is Brazil and then teams like Argentina, England, Netherlands, Portugal, Italy, Czech Rep, France, Germany and Spain. There are lot of good teams and i think it will be an exciting World Cup 2006!

And of course, the spanish guys had some problems with teamwork. Also they lost the important matches every time. :shrug:

Oh yes it´s really funny watching the games with lot of people. We are a group of 10-15 persons and try to see all games. It´s a little bit crazy but tradition in the meantime! However we don´t run away with painted faces...only screaming! :D

I hope you can see lot of games too!

kidnicky
05-27-2006, 08:39 PM
Hey NicoFan, you are not wrong, the World Cup starts in June, in 12 days haha! people here in Mexico is going crazy and you can see counters with the countdown everywhere. Mexico has a good team but like always I only expect to see them in the R16, actually this time they got an "easy" group, the toughest one would be Portugal.

The problem with Spain is always the same, and some other teams have the same problem. But I'm rooting for Brazil as always, Argentina could be dangerous, Holland and a lot of European teams, my other favorite it's Italy, so it'll be an interesting world cup.

And Chile didn't make it to the World Cup :sad:

NicoFan
05-27-2006, 08:44 PM
Yeah these commentators said that Spain never is able to win the big ones. Too bad. :sad: Hopefully this year they can do it.

And glad TommyB you aren't one of those crazy people who paints their faces and run around the streets like nuts. :lol:

I'll watch Mexico too Kid! I think Univision is going to have a lot of their games. That will be good except I hope they don't take off my telenovelas for futbol....telenovelas are far more important than World Cup. ;) :lol:

Speaking of telenovelas Kid - did you ask your mom about Lety? Last night she calls her papa and asks him what to do. And in the previews for lunes, Ariel has a tape of her talking to the guy at the company that he's giving to Don Fernando. :eek: Poor Kid...I know I drive you loca with my questions about my telenovelas! :haha:

TommyB.
05-28-2006, 10:08 AM
Sorry kidnicky! I forgot it. Mexico has a good team too. :yeah:

Mexico played great games at the Confederations Cup here in Germany last year. They defeated Brazil and lost only narrow against Argentina (penalty shoot-out) and Germany (extra time).

I like the Mexican Rafael Marquez who is playing at FC Barcelona in Spain! :)

Btw - I don´t like telenovelas...but they are very popular in Germany too! My girlfriend is watching telenovelas or soap operas all the time. :rolleyes: ;)

05-29-2006, 12:46 AM
Don't worry Tommy B :yeah: actually I left my fanatism for the mexican team since the world cup in 94, the one that was in USA .... loooong story and I'm sure that if I'd say it, more than one would call me crazy :lol:

But I do like Rafa Marques!! he's the best mexican player and the first mexican beign champion of Europe :banana:

NicoFan, don't kill me, I forgot to ask to my mom :lol: but I'll do it I promise!!! but like I told you before, Lety doesn't do anything wrong to Don Fernando :p

Tommy, your girlfriend would be a great friend of NicoFan :lol:

NicoFan
05-30-2006, 01:04 AM
Kid! :wavey:

You were right! :lol:

Lety didn't do anything to Don Fernando!!!! I cried when she told him, and said she would would resign, and he told her that he trusted her - he had such a sweet look on his face. But Don Omar at the end told DF that Lety was in love with him.

And now...I promise I'll never ask you a La Fea Mas Bella question again! :lol: :lol:

NicoFan
05-30-2006, 12:41 PM
Hey TommyB - I noticed that Tommy H won! Easily too. Yeay! :) Hopefully that means he's feeling better.

kidnicky
05-30-2006, 01:40 PM
Hey NicoFan :wavey:

See!! I told you!! :lol: .... don't worry you can continue asking about Lety the thing is that I'm not sure if I'll have an answer for you :p , you're more a telenovelas fan that I am haha! besides I always ask you about Am Idol so we're even ;)

BTW I saw a little bit of the interview that ESPN made to Nico and of course that I almost cry again :silly: he ended saying "I was so close to not beign in the 2nd round", thank God that he could!!!

NicoFan
05-30-2006, 01:47 PM

That's true, we are kind of even - and you have American Idol tonight, right?

Oh I wish I had watched that interview! I would have cried too. I was less in shock later in the day - that was a numbing match, I felt dazed and confused afterwards. :lol: I can imagine how he felt. There's always such drama in Nico's matches. :lol:

kidnicky
05-30-2006, 02:16 PM
Nop, I've Am Idol until tomorrow night, the first part of the finale so I need to know again the lenght of the first show, 'cause I already know that the 2nd was the one with 2 hours, but I need to know it for the first one, 'cause I can handle an hour and to be awake until 12 am but until 1 am I'm not sure, and it'll depend of the next Nico's match, I guess I'll tape it 'cause I was falling sleep yesterday since 10 pm :lol: yeah me and my great idea of beign awake since 4 am :lol:

Actually I guess that I didn't see the complete interview, it was the night edition of sports center so the commentator was saying that Nico and Chucho had almost the same ending for their matches and they even gave the interview at the same time :lol: you could see Chucho in the room next to Nico :p, so he only said (the part that I watched) that it was a strange match 'cause after the 2 first sets he lost his energy, that it was weird what he was feeling but that he was lucky to be able to finish the match and then the phrase that I told you before. It seems that Nico and Fernando know Malisse since they're juniors and both of them think that he has a great technique and a great talent so that's why he was in shocked when he finally won the match .... I didn't know that :lol:

The boy has to make a mental hospital for his fans, because for him we'd end in one of those clinics :silly:

NicoFan
05-30-2006, 02:24 PM
:lol: Kid! So true - he's either going to make us more loca than we already are or kill us from a heart attack watching his matches.

Poor guy that he lost his energy. :sad: That's so strange because he's always so fit but of course it might have been from all the intensity he put into the first two sets that he wore himself out. Plus I think he's putting a lot of pressure on himself to do well this year...that will wear him out mentality.

The first night was an hour where they just sang (I think it was only one hour - wish Sparko was here because she would definitely remember - but I'm almost positive). Then the final show where they announced the winner was definitely two hours.

BTW Kid - looked at iPods this weekend - I like the one that holds 500 songs but they only had it in white - white is the most popular but I like it in black - I'm going to look at another store and see if they have it in black.

kidnicky
05-30-2006, 02:38 PM
NicoFan, now we've 2 petitions to make to the Massu Family :lol: I don't have medical insurance and I'm sure that If I'd have it, it wouldn't cover insanity for a tennis player :haha:

Thanks for the times, so I can see live the first show and I guess that I'll tape the final one or like I said before, it'll depend on Nico's match.

NicoFan!! I want the ipod!! I was looking at them this weekend but here the prize it's the double that you told me! and a colleague got one of those in white because a friend brought it from US I think .... all is so expensive here all the time :o ooh! and btw! Alex told me that he sent yesterday your package with you know what :lol:

TommyB.
05-30-2006, 02:52 PM
NicoFan - Yes Tommy H feeling better and the match against Schuettler wasn´t tough fortunately! I´m really happy about the scores so far. :yeah:

Kidnicky - What was wrong with the Mexican soccer team? Sorry but i must ask for it! ;)

kidnicky
05-30-2006, 03:14 PM
Good to know that Tommy Haas is feeling better :yeah:

Tommy B, are you asking me what was wrong with the mexican team in the last match that they lost against France or why is that I'm not rooting for them anymore??? :p

NicoFan
05-30-2006, 03:26 PM
TommyB - yeah so far I like most of the results. Tommy H and Fer V were two I liked - though I felt sorry for JI. So far the only one that I'm really sad that lost is Feli. :sad:

Kid - sorry iPods are expensive in Mexico. I'll look online and see how much they are in Canada. Maybe you can buy one when you're there. We'll add electronics store to Barnes & Noble and the Blue Jays game! :lol:

NicoFan
05-30-2006, 03:35 PM
Kid - they have Best Buys stores in Canada. The one that I want is about the same price in Canada as in the US given the exchange rate.

kidnicky
05-30-2006, 03:57 PM
Thanks for the link NicoFan ... that's the one that I want but I can't remember how much was the cost here :lol: I think it was about 280 usd so this is better haha ... my brother is already asking me for one and I'm telling him that I can't bring all Canada with me 'cause I'll have to pay a lot in customs :lol:

I don't know how but we've to get the enough time to visit all that and not miss any practice of Nico :p

NicoFan
05-30-2006, 04:08 PM
We can't miss any of Nico's practices. :lol: We'll have to shop late at night. :yeah: And find a night Blue Jays game.

kidnicky
05-30-2006, 04:39 PM
and the shops are open until late??? :lol: .... the blue jays games are only in the afternoon :rolleyes: .... we'll see although is good to see you making plans for Toronto again after you email from yesterday :p

BTW we've to start working about the book that you told me remember??? and did you read that Alex sent your package already???

NicoFan
05-30-2006, 04:44 PM
Yeah, I still want to go to Toronto. :lol:

And we do have to work on the book. I'm behind on that. :eek:

And I did see that Alex sent my package...yeay! :woohoo: I hope his package gets to him okay...I've been worried about it.

kidnicky
05-30-2006, 05:29 PM
It's good to know that you still want to go to Toronto :lol: and we do have to start working with that book :eek:

Hopefully both of you will receive your packages very quickly and safe :p

what a match between Marat and Fernando?!?! I hope that GonzoFan did find the way to follow it :rolleyes:

TommyB.
05-30-2006, 07:04 PM
NicoFan - with "Feli" you mean F. Lopez? Perfect day for me...Gonzo def. Safin at least! I hope of a match against Tommy H in the third round. But it´s difficult.

kidnicky - why you are not rooting for them anymore? :)

NicoFan
05-30-2006, 07:42 PM
I hope GF got to watch it too! Great match - even though the last set seemed one sided score wise, almost every game went to deuce. Must have been great to watch...and great because Fernando won! :) I would love to see Fer against Tommy H - can't remember who Tommy has next, but I know Fernando has Novak - tough in one way, but I think Fer can beat him.

And yup, Feli a in Feliciano Lopez. Or as Rafa calls him - Fidgiano (something like that - we're supposed to hear the story on why some other time).

TommyB.
05-30-2006, 09:04 PM
Tommy H plays against his friend and davis-cup double partner Alex Waske now. Usually it´s a little bit easier as a player like Djokovic. But i read that Tommy still had problems and wanted to cancel 30 minutes before the match against Schuettler started today. He tried it fortunately. I don´t know what happens the next days. :shrug:

Ah ok "Feli" Lopez. He isn´t playing a good year so far!

kidnicky
05-30-2006, 10:50 PM
NicoFan used to call some of the boys for short names :lol: just teasing you NicoFan!

Tommy B, long story, I was a big fan and when they went to the world cup in USA it was so exciting, it was a great time and they're in a tough group, I remembered that it was called the death group, they're were with Italy, Norway and Irlanda (forgot the name in english lol!) so they passed to the next round with Italy and the next match was against Bulgary, it was a great match, it ended 1-1 and all was defined in penalties .... 2 of the best mexican players didn't score their penalties and Campos (the portero, the ones that keeps the goal entrance) did some great stops but at the end Mexico lost ... it was sooo damn closed! the bulgarians were tired and scared so it was so dissapointed. I cried like crazy! and I didn't want to go to eat (silly I know!) so since that time that I suffered so much I decided to stop rooting for them, that was one of the best mexican teams ever so the rest is just worthless :lol: ... I do like Rafa Marques but he can't play all the positions in the field like a wizard :p

See! long story and now everyone knows how crazy I was .... correction I am 'cause the place of the mexican team has ben occupied for some chilean tennis player that you all know :silly:

Hopefully Tommy Haas will recover very soon!

NicoFan
05-31-2006, 12:22 AM
Hey Kid - una espanol pregunta. You know how Lety always says con permiso con permiso con permiso about 10 times as she's leaving the room? Well Don Fernando and Don Omar say "propio" "propio" back. What does the word "propio" have to do with "con permiso"? "Propio" means "own" ... like "mi propia casa" - my own house. No me entiendo... :shrug:

+alonso
05-31-2006, 12:41 AM
OMG :lol: We have La fea mas bella in Chile too :lol: but I don't see it :p
Hey NF, In Which channel do you see it? In the US?

Ok, I have to go and study :p

NicoFan
05-31-2006, 12:45 AM
Go study! :lol:

Its on Univision New York time from 8-9.

I love La Fea Mas Bella (especially that gorgeous Jaime Camil...oopppps sorry guys :lol: ) - she says no but I really think that I'm making poor Kid loca because in Mexico they are further along in the story so I keep asking her questions. :lol: Kid isn't going to like me very much by the time its over. :haha:

kidnicky
05-31-2006, 01:27 PM
Alonso has that telenovela too?? :eek: damn! can you explain me why everybody have mexican tv shows and I can't have a single chilean tv channel?!!?! what a bummer :p

Oh and about your question NicoFan, when they say "propio" that means that she can go away, that's just an answer when somebody says "permiso" permission to leave a room or to leave a group in a middle of a conversation, like you don't want to be rud with the people around crossing between them or interrupting a conversation, if you want to leave you just say "con permiso" or like Lety "permiso" and then the rest of the people answer you "propio" that means, it's okay you can go :lol: ... it's just good manners, people in the US use "excuse me" but don't know if you answer something as a response :shrug:

Thanks for the explanation Kid! :hug:

Lety cracks me up with her permiso permiso permiso. :lol: And bowing down when she says it.

In the US, I guess we really lack manners. ;) :lol: When people say excuse me, people either just nod, or if they need to move, just move. Its kind of like yeah whatever you're excused. Just go... :haha:

Yeah Kid - not fair that everyone gets the great Mexico shows and you can't get any of the Chilean stations. :sad: Even when I was in Spain, we got one of the Mexican telenovelas. :shrug:

kidnicky
05-31-2006, 05:41 PM
I know! and now Don Fernando knows that when Lety is mad, she doesn't bow to him and says "permiso" very loud and serious :lol:

Well I don't know if we've to many good manners but I say "con permiso" everytime that I left the elevator and the rest of the people says "propio" or "buen dia" ... not everyone is like that :p

When DirecTV was here, I remembered that they had TVN and The Tennis channel, but the stupids from SKY didn't let them to stay here and now those assh*les don't have those channels and not even ESPN+ :sad:

I don't have the link for the RG thread on his forum so I can't read what's happening.

Even anyone reads this, can you post the link here?

Gracias.

First, I'm so sorry you didn't get to see your Gaston. I felt so bad when Kid told me. :hug:

And Nico is so sweet with Stefano. Its one of the things I like most about him. Not many players would let their younger brother come on tour with them as much as Nico does with Stefano. Nico... :hug:

See! long story and now everyone knows how crazy I was .... correction I am 'cause the place of the mexican team has ben occupied for some chilean tennis player that you all know :silly:



I can understand it because Germany lost against Bulgaria in the next round (Quarterfinal)! We all were really dissapointed too. Germany led 1:0 until 15 minutes before the match was finished. Then Bulgaria shot two goals within 3 minutes and we lost 1:2. I was shocked and frustrated a long time. :mad:

You see it´s also crazy! And i´m rooting for the national team again and again. ;)

06-01-2006, 09:09 PM
so Tommy B, we're kind of the same :lol: ... today Mexico lost against Holland so it's good to feel "ok" about it, instead of beign crying and screaming :p

I still can't believe that Feña lost :bigcry: what happened with him?!?!?! I saw a little bit of the 3rd set and I was amazed when I saw the score board, I was thinking that this was going to be " easy " for him but never this!!! :sad: .... GonzoFan I'm so sorry!!! :hug:

oh damn! I forgot it .... Lovely! is good to have you back!!! :hug: and thank you so much for beign rooting for Nico during that match although I felt bad for you that you didn't see Gaston's match but I know that you saw him a lot :lol:

06-02-2006, 11:48 PM
You're welcome for all the :hugs: . :)

I figure Nico is probably going to leave Paris tomorrow for home.

He'll have a good couple of weeks to relax - with the exception of the exhibition with Rios.

HAVE A GREAT VACATION NICO! :) You deserve it!

He's had a great 1st half of the year - great LA swing, did well in Miami, did well in Morocco, had some problems with the MS events in Europe, but did well here in RG. Got to wonder how far he would have gone if he hadn't had to play Fed.

Grass always sucks. :(

But I think he's in a good position for summer clay in Europe.

VAMOS NICO!

kidnicky
06-03-2006, 03:41 AM
why he can't skip the grass season?? :lol: I don't like it at all .... well it's good to know that he'll have a good and well desearve rest and like NicoFan, I know that he'll kick butt in the rest of the clay season in europe.

Have a great vacation Nico!!! Nicofan is right-you have earned it!

I know grass sucks for Nico, but I was wondering if Nico might be a little more used to grass this year after the Davis Cup with the US? Maybe that was too long ago but ya never know-just a thought. :shrug:

:wavey: Gonzofan Happy to hear you're feeling better today. :)

This week has been such a emotional rollercoaster following the Chileans-great wins and sad losses. And Paul's melodrama with Ancic :eek: There is more drama and emotion in tennis than in most movies! :lol:

GonzoFan
06-03-2006, 05:30 AM
Thanks Sparko! :hug:

Yes, you are totally right. This was a crazy week :lol: and talking about Paul and Ancic, did you know that they got a fine of 3,000 dollars? Poor Paul! For Ancic it isn't maybe too much but in Paul's case is different. :awww:

Fergie
06-03-2006, 05:42 AM
Mario should pay Paul's fine too :lol: ... They still can appeal ;)

:lol: I don't hate you! We all say things now and again when we're upset our guy is losing. Shoot, when Nico lost the 2 set advantage over Malisse I was yelling at my computer at him. :lol:

Plus you weren't feeling well and that doesn't help either.

Sorry....I didn't realize until this morning that you thought I was mad at you or I would have posted earlier. :hug: :hug:

Hope you feel better!!!! :hug:

NicoFan
06-03-2006, 11:50 AM
I don't think that Paul should pay any fine. All he did was complain about a call. Mario was the one that pushed him and the chair umpire.

Not that Paul was an angel. ;) :lol: And I do like Mario a lot.

And yeah, it is a lot of money for poor Paul. :eek:

I was a big fan when I was younger, but now I must admit unless its the end of the year playoffs, I find it a bit boring. :eek: Though I do enjoy going to the game and eating hot dogs and Cracker Jacks and drinking beer. :yeah: And of course the 7th inning stretch singing "take me out to the ball park..." :lol:

oh no no no you girls are driving me crazy :lol: first NicoFan you sound like my brother :eek: that he only likes to go to the baseball games to eat a lot!!! :haha: , shame on you!!! having the best league in the world ?!?! :p ....

GonzoFan!! okay, I was a huuuuuuge futbol fan but like I'm a terrible loser I decided to stay away a little bit from it, before I have a heartattack in front of a TV but at least you've to see some matches during the world cup!!! the best futbol in the world in one place so you've to be aware of that :lol: ...

And another thing girls, Chile doesn't suck at futbol!!! the thing is that you're in the worst area to try to qualify to the world cup!! :eek: the best teams are in south america!! Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile etc etc so it's like an impossible thing trying to qualify if you've Argentina and Brazil fighting for a place. Here in Mexico, we've a lot of chilean futbol players and they're amazing!! , Mexico qualifies all the time 'cause it has such an easy teams in the same area, the most complicated now are the USA, and the worst thing is that now USA is beating Mexico in futbol :ras: so now there's another reason why I stopped rooting for the Mexican team :lol: you'll see, they'll make it to the next round and that'll be it :haha:

Lovely! after my post I was thinking that I forgot to put France :lol: but you're right ... Zidane :worship:

Kid - I'm soooo impressed - wow...you know your futbol! :yeah: I think I'm going to be asking both you and TommyB a lot of questions because you two are our resident experts!!!!!

And anther wow...I didn't know the US beat Mexico...are we that good? :lol: I had no clue becuase I thought they would s*ck so I never watch them. Maybe Mexico isn't as good as Argentina and Brazil, but they seem very good to me when I watch them on TV.

And what other reason would you go to a baseball for besides eating!!!! :haha: Just kidding...I do like the sport, but they're all so greedy with their strikes and everything - made me not like the sport as much. :( But I do watch the Sox and the Yanks and the Mets now and again.

06-06-2006, 10:28 PM
I think that's one of our problems. I know there are some chilean players playing in Mexico but I think that sometimes they play much better when they aren't playing for Chile :shrug: I don't know and maybe I'm wrong but that's my thought.

kidnicky
06-06-2006, 10:55 PM
well I'm not an expert NicoFan, but having a futbol coach in my family and having like 5 uncles that loveeee futbol, I did learn something about it :lol:

and well the US team is not that good, but it's improving a lot!! that was our only hope! that was the only sport where Mexico beated the USA all the time!! those days are gone, we lost the oportunity to go to quaterfinals the last world cup when we lost against the US team, all the people here was sooo sure that Mexico will finally make it and again, nothing happened!!! thank God that I wasn't a big fan of them by that moment, otherwise I'd have killed myself :haha: .... And again, USA qualified to the world cup 'cause the only "tough" team in its area it's Mexico :rolleyes:

And the other thing with Chile it's that most of their great players are outside the country, so it's a tough thing to try to form an actual team when the players just meet each other for these kind of matches, you only have to find a good coach and then Chile will be kicking butt again. They're during an european tour playing against teams that will be playing in the world cup, and Chile didn't lose a single match, so I'm sure that it's a matter of time and you'll have a winer team in the world cup again :yeah:

You're right NicoFan, the sox break your heart, but they've giving some good surprises to their fans ... that's why I love that movie, I'm just like that :lol:

Ah don't worry NicoFan, it was after the world cup in 94 so I was like "okay we did it again" :lol:

Well, it looks like Gonzofan and I will depend you all of you for guidance :lol: There is a saying here in the states that goes "soccer (futbol) is the sport of the future and always will be". ;) Its been true for 30 yrs but things can change.

Kid-I never knew either your depth of knowledge on soccer! I'm impressed! :worship:

NicoFan
06-07-2006, 12:21 PM
:lol: Sparko!

That reminds of me something James said on a recent ATP show when asked about World Cup: I don't know. I'm an American.

I was like James you are a cutie but you're missing out dude!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :lol: As well as the rest of America. ;)

kidnicky
06-07-2006, 01:20 PM
Sparko that's a fun saying :lol: people in the US should start to pay attention to soccer, I mean that's one of the main sports that the kids there practice now am I right?? at least that's what I always see in movies :lol: .... but it's okay! it's not fair that they've to be always the best on everything ... that's why it was so lovely to lost against them in the 2nd round in the previous world cup :rolleyes:

And I just know a little bit about soccer Sparko, not that much :p ... but like I said before, living with a family that talks about soccer everyweekend has its advantages and disadvantages :lol:

Hola chicas :wavey:
i just send you a pm Kid ;)

Only my grand mother likes soccer in my family so i don't know a lot about it, but in france, it's so popular that i will even be interrested by the world cup a bit... i said a bit! :p

kidnicky
06-07-2006, 01:59 PM
Hola Eléa

Thanks for leting me know about the pm, I'll check it right now :p

And a little bit is a little bit :lol: you've a good team so I guess that at least you'll see their matches ;)

hey Eléa I replied to your pm ;)

2 days for the world cup!! :banana:

06-07-2006, 03:49 PM
And another thing girls, Chile doesn't suck at futbol!!! the thing is that you're in the worst area to try to qualify to the world cup!! :eek: the best teams are in south america!! Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay, Chile etc etc so it's like an impossible thing trying to qualify if you've Argentina and Brazil fighting for a place. Here in Mexico, we've a lot of chilean futbol players and they're amazing!! , Mexico qualifies all the time 'cause it has such an easy teams in the same area, the most complicated now are the USA, and the worst thing is that now USA is beating Mexico in futbol :ras: so now there's another reason why I stopped rooting for the Mexican team :lol: you'll see, they'll make it to the next round and that'll be it :haha:

:

The qualification for a team like Chile is very tough. All national teams in south america are dangerous meanwhile. In the other areas you find lot of easy teams...also in Europe! ;)

I´ve read that Mexico has some trouble with the coach La Volpe. The mexican press want the resignation of him. They wrote La Volpe was drunk at the training camp in Holland.

Btw - Here in Hamburg is much (positive) trouble too...more and more fans came into town :eek: and i´ve seen many Argentina shirts so far. Saturday they are playing against Ivory Coast at our AOL-Arena. :D

kidnicky
06-07-2006, 05:07 PM
I guess that Europe and South America are the most complicated areas to try to qualify to the world cup.

Yes, the mexican press don't want La Volpe anymore :lol:, now he's mad at them and he doesn't want to give a single interview, if he was drunk or not I'll never know, although during that match the guy seemed pretty normal to me, but it's always the same with the press. The previous coach was better than him, he's not bad but this team could be better, besides he called to the final team to one player that it's not the best in that position but everyone is saying that was because he's is son in law :haha: ... oh we'll see, but I'm sure that Mexico will be in the 2nd round and that'll be it like every single world cup :rolleyes:

BTW Tommy, are you going to some matches????

TommyB.
06-07-2006, 05:59 PM
:D funny

La Volpe looks like an eccentric person. I wonder if he´s still the coach after the tournament! ;)

In Germany the press had lot of problems with our coach Klinsmann too. He tried some new things and took some unpopular decisions. The press was angry with Klinsmann because he lived in Florida and wasn´t in Germany the whole time. And also when he changed the goalkeepers few weeks ago.

I had no luck kidnicky. We applied us for some tickets in the internet but no chance. It´s really difficult to get tickets for the World Cup. But it´s not as bad as that! :)

kidnicky
06-07-2006, 06:35 PM
yeah he's kind of eccentric and I'm almost sure that he won't be the coach after the world cup, it's always the same! like the mexican team loses in the same round every single world cup, they change coaches to see if someone else could work, the good thing is that at least they leave the poor guy chose and work with the team until the next world cup.

So it seems that the press of germany is after their coach too huh?? :lol: it's a never ending story, there it was because the coach was living in Florida and here because the coach admitted non mexican players that got their citizenship just to play in the team :haha:

Oh so the people in Germany was the same as the people in France to get tickets for RG?? kind of a lottery right?? it's kind of silly but it seems that they wanted to be sure that the stadiums would have people from different countries, not all from Germany, but it's a bummer! beign so near to you and without a chance to go?!?! shoot! :o

TommyB.
06-07-2006, 08:44 PM
Exactly! It was a lottery...very complicated for real fans. But if Germany is playing you have more Germans in the stadium i think. The highest number of tickets gone to world cup sponsors. So my last chance is black market. :D

I have no problems with it! We are watching the matches at home or going to sportbars.

You are absolutley right Kid! The kids' soccer leagues are always full from preschool up and they're are always looking for coaches but all the parents say "I don't know how to play" :lol: Maybe this will be the generation that finally brings soccer to the forefront in US sports scene. :yeah:

kidnicky
06-07-2006, 10:20 PM
oh well Tommy, hopefully at least you'll get to see a match getting a ticket in the black marquet :lol: .... that lottery thing wasn't funny at all :ras:

You're right Sparko, I guess that the kids will be a great soccer players for the US in the future, now Mexico can't beat them that easy so I'm okay if they become the best in soccer too :lol:

LOVELY
06-07-2006, 10:41 PM
Tonight the French team won against China (3/1) but one of our best player ,Cissé is injured :eek: He twisted his ankle and now he probably won't play for the World Cup :bigcry:
Well we won 3/1 because one of the chinese player marked a goal against his own team :lol: Sorry it's not funny for them :o But for us it's :yeah:
It was just a friendly match but too bad Cissé get injured :awww:
(I don't follow soccer , only the world team cup :o but I know some of european teams because many french players play in England or spain :rolleyes: )I'm not a fan of soccer I prefer tennis :lol:
Time for me to go to bed so see ya :bigwave:

kidnicky
06-07-2006, 11:01 PM
oh Lovely that's too bad!! poor guy :sad: ... the same thing happened to a player of Paraguay team (don't know the name in english lol!) so he'll miss the world cup too, that's too bad :sad:

You're right, it wasn't funny for China but thanks to that guy France won for 3 goals :lol:

Chileno
06-08-2006, 11:31 AM
Jose Saturnino Cardoso, that is the name of the Paraguayan player who will miss the world cup, he is a veteran of the Paraguay team, he has played in the last three world cups, all he wanted was to finish his career after the world cup but he got injured, the poor guy was devastated, he almost broke in tears in the press conference.

kidnicky
06-08-2006, 01:16 PM
I can imagine that, I know Cardoso, he plays in Mexico, the name that I didn't know how to write was the name of the country in english :p ... poor guy!

The goal keeper of Mexico had to fly back to Mexico 'cause his father died before taking the plane to Germany, and the same thing happened to an argentinian player, poor guys, just what they need right now :sad:

TommyB.
06-08-2006, 03:04 PM
Oh yes...bad news today with all these injuries and especially the story with Mexican goalkeeper Sanchez. But i´ve read he want to come back for the first match.

Frenchman Cissé is an unlucky fellow. It´s not the first important tournament he´s missing because of an injury.

kidnicky
06-08-2006, 04:01 PM
oh yes lots of teams are dealing with different problems, since injuries till deaths in their families, and he wants to go back for the first match but he'll be tired and I'm not sure if he'd play or not :shrug:

poor Cissé .... definetely, the luck plays an important role for every athlete :rolleyes:

LOVELY
06-08-2006, 04:44 PM
:wavey: well Cissé is a really unlucky guy you're right :awww: he missed the last world cup and some others cups because of injuries and yesterday at first they sais he had a problem with his ankle but actually it was not the ankle but he broke his leg.He had a surgery today and won't play for quite a long time :awww:

kidnicky
06-08-2006, 06:04 PM
I can't believe it!!! :eek: it was that bad??? poor guy!!! :sad: ... see Lovely, there're people with more bad luck than us :p

Poor Cissé this is just terrible for him

LOVELY
06-08-2006, 06:56 PM
yes he broke his leg (open fracture of his right leg :eek: )He twisted his leg and it broke :unsure: )We've seen it live on tv...It was very spectacular and scary... :unsure:

kidnicky
06-08-2006, 07:15 PM
oh God!! poor guy!!! and he was just training??? what did he do to got an injury like that?? :eek:

I can imagine that it was very scary to see it live on tv :scared:

LOVELY
06-08-2006, 07:29 PM

Yes it's Axl Rose. :rocker2:
I like Guns n'Roses for a long time.
They're actually making some concerts in Europe.
I hope their new album will go out soon. I just wait it since '91 !! But with Axl nothing's never quick.

Wow...he looks so different now.

I remember when Welcome to the Jungle came out - I told one of my friends...they are going to be big...bigger then Zep. He thought I was insane. Maybe GNR isn't as big as Zep - but they were certainly totally great to watch live, and are definitely one of the coolest bands of all time. :yeah: Totally out of control. Though I only saw them once live and I was so bummed because Axl behaved himself. :haha:

Fav song - Sweet Child of Mine - song and video. :yeah:

Yeah you might have to wait for another couple years for a new album. :eek:

Now you've another reason to check the mexican team and Barcelona NicoFan :yeah:

NicoFan
06-08-2006, 10:27 PM
Definitely - I would love to see Barcelona and Real Madrid games but here in the States you have to go to Clubs to see the European teams except for the teams in the UK. It sucks.

I loved November Rain too - which reminds me of a story. :haha: I was in Atlanta visiting relatives and my cousin who is a rock n' roll freak :yeah: took me to a store that had all bootleg albums and tapes. So I got a GNR album that had November Rain like 1 1/2 years before it actually came out on a regular CD. It was sooo cool. But...in one of my many moves, the movers lost the box with all my old albums. And with it...that bootleg album. I was totally devastated.

kidnicky
06-08-2006, 10:37 PM
Oh my!! what a story :eek: that cd would cost like tons of dollars right now ... another great things about movings right?? :ras:

oh NicoFan I should pass to you some of the leagues that I could see her, that's why I'm kind of retired from futbol, instead of tennis we've the spanish league, the italian league, the english league, the argentinian league and all day it's futbol ... it's to much!!!! :lol: oooh and check the comment that I left you on the pics thread :p

NicoFan
06-08-2006, 10:41 PM
I know...I could have put it on eBay and cleaned up. :sad:

But I wouldn't have sold it - it was really neat to have November Rain from a jam session.

You are soooo lucky you get all those games!!! You really need to start watching futbol again.

Some guy on TV jus tsaid that he is surprised Mexico got seeded - didn't think they deserved it - I stuck my tongue out at him for you Kid! :lol:

And I saw your comment! I would love that poster too - in that size! But kind of hard to hang in the apartment. :lol:

I agree! AXL Rose and Guns n' Roses Rules!!! :rocker2:
I used to have a huge crush on Axl! I thought he was so hot! not now because he is so different but some years ago he was :hearts: well, that's my opinion :lol:
One of my fav song is Patience and also Welcome to the Jungle and of course Sweet child of mine. Oh, and I used to love her :lol: that's a great song :lol:

Of course Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue was my guy. ;)

GonzoFan
06-08-2006, 11:55 PM

Motley Crue :rocker2: what about Skidrow? I like them too! :rocker2:

NicoFan
06-09-2006, 12:03 AM
Slash did look hot at times. He was one cool dude. :yeah:

OMG! Sebastian Bach!!! Now here's more stories and then I have to go watch La Fea Mas Bella! :lol:

I loved Skid Row. I was in love with Sebastian BAch and that long beautiful blonde hair!

Anyway.

First story. I was living in Atlanta (lots happens in Atlanta :lol: ) and there was this really cool concert place - I can't remember the name - but there was 3 levels: Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven. In Heaven was the concerts were held. Well Sebastian comes out in this feathered shirt - and I mean feathers everywhere - like this fluorescent pink color. And all the other band members had the same shirts but different colors. It was just too wild. :lol:

Second story. Back in 2000-2001, Sebastian was on Broadway in Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde. I saw it - he was awesome. He has the coolest voice, and he would just let it rip. But one day I walk out of work - I was working in the Times Square area then (which is right where Broadway is), and who is standing across the street talking to some blonde? Yup, Sebastian Bach. Well, in NYC its considered to be very uncool if you talk to celebrities. So I had to very cool walk across the street and pretend that I wasn't looking at him, I went into some store, and came out and had to pretend again not to look at him. :lol: He looked so hawt! And I wanted to just say - hey Sebastian dude! But I refrained. ;)

And now I'm sure everyone is sick of my stories - and its La Fea Mas Bella time! :lol:

Sparko1030
06-09-2006, 04:25 AM
Hey, Nicofan, I love your stories!!! And here is some current Sebastian Bach trivia: He currently has a supporting role on Gilmore Girls as part of Lane's band. He's pretty good too! :lol: But I have to be honest and let you know how so very UNcool I am-I had no idea who he was-hubby told me who Sebastian was. He was completely shocked! :eek:

Alx
06-09-2006, 07:46 AM
I used to have a huge crush on Axl! I thought he was so hot!

Me too Gonzofan. Especially when he wore his white tight-fitting short :tape: :angel:

My favorites songs are Patience, Rocquet Queen, Paradise City, Don't cry and Estranged. The guitar of Slash on this song is great !!
Chinese Democracy go out maybe in Septembre. I'll believe it when I'll have it in my hands !!

GonzoFan
06-09-2006, 08:40 AM
Great stories, NicoFan! I think I would scream and go hug him if I see him across the street! :haha: it seems that for NYC I am a very uncool person. :haha:

Sparko - yes! you are right! I'v seen him many times in Gilmore Girls and he is a very good actor too. ;) but he is fatter now. :( just like Axl too. :( :haha:


Me too Gonzofan. Especially when he wore his white tight-fitting short :tape: :angel:

Love it! :hearts:

Paradise City is great too. :rocker2: http://www.majorfm.com/forum/images/smilies/music/music-smiley-007.gif take me down to the paradise city where the grass is green and the girls are pretty http://www.majorfm.com/forum/images/smilies/music/music-smiley-007.gif :rocker2:

Hi everyone!

Yeah the World Cup starts today!! :banana:

Really nice that you rooting for Germany NicoFan. :D

kidnicky - Paolo Maldini didn´t play for Italy longer. I think he retired after the European Championship 2004.

NicoFan
06-09-2006, 01:40 PM
Yeay for World Cup starting today! Good luck to everyone's teams! :woohoo:

Sparko thanks for the info on Sebastian on Gilmore Girls! I'll have to check it out. But Sebastian got fat? :sad: Oh well, I'm not skinny like I was in those days either so can't really talk. :lol: But does he still have that long beautiful blonde hair????

Paradise City - another one of my favorites. And Slash is one of the best guitarists ever. :yeah:

NicoFan
06-09-2006, 01:42 PM
Too bad for David today - shame when a player misses an opportunity in the SFs of the Slam because of physical problems. :hug: for David, and hope he's doing better for Wimbledon.

kidnicky
06-09-2006, 01:45 PM
Yeaaay!! World cup starts today!!!! :banana: although I'll be stuck at work and I brought a little tv but I can only watch 2 channels and I'm not sure if I'd see it there :sad:

Oh Tommy I was still hoping to see Paolo this time ... ooh anyway :sad: thanks for your answer!

NicoFan I agree with GonzoFan! I'd be a very uncool person for NYC :lol: I'd have done the same, not screaming but probably I'd have looked at him with a silly face and asked him some autograph or I don't know what :p

And I don't hate your stories!! I love them!!! :lol:

I love the song of Paradise city!!!! Nick Carter sang that song when I saw his concert, 'cause he loves Guns and it was sooo cool!!! :lol: of course nothing compared to the original but it was cool to hear that song live! :rocker2:

kidnicky
06-09-2006, 01:48 PM
yeah poor David although I still don't know what actually happened 'cause I was watching the match go to the bathroom and then I saw the retired thing ... hopefully is nothing serious

06-09-2006, 01:49 PM

NicoFan
06-09-2006, 03:09 PM
Kid - lucky you that you get to see the opening ceremonies and parts of the game!!!

We have a TV at work but it doesn't have ESPN which is the station showing the games. :sad:

I'm glad no one hated the stories. :lol:

And no, Kid and GF you couldn't do that cuz people would think you were tourists - and no one who lives in NY wants to look like a tourist! :haha:

Sparko - I forgot to tease you for not knowing who Sebastian was. :lol: Next time I send you some DVDs I'll include one of his old videos where he looks really hawt! :lol:

Another final Federer-Nadal. It's boring. :zzz:
At least the weather is very good. I'm going to spend a good week-end with sun. :cool:

NicoFan
06-09-2006, 05:01 PM
Do you really think it will be boring, Alx? I really loved their match in the Rome final...I had no idea who would win throughout the entire match, it was so close. And its the only Slam that you wonder if anyone can beat Fed.

But a weekend in the sun sounds good too! :)

BTW - I have ESPN at work so I'll have to go sneak and watch a few minutes of the Germany match. ;)

I didn't mean than the final will be boring. It's the fact that's always the same players in final which is boring.
But if I was fan of Federer or Nadal, I think that I would think it's good and exciting.

I spend my week-end at my parents.
Have a good week-end !!! :wavey:

Have a nice week-end everybody :wavey:

oh well no luck at all, the 2 channels that I can see on my tv are not the ones showing the match or the opening ceremony :ras: so I'm only knowing the result through the internet, Tommy must be very happy Germany is wining 4-2!!!!

The final won't be boring, but it's true, it's kind of "boring" to know that all the time the same players are in the finals :lol: but it's going to be a greeeeeaaaaat match and RAFA HAS TO WIN!!!!!!!!!! :bounce:

Eléa good song!!!! Don't cry!!! :yeah:

I felt so bad for David! I saw the score first (kids are out of school so I didnt' get up too early today ;) ) I watched their match on TV (taped of course, can't pre-empt the stupid "Today"show for a live semi-final from RG ya know :rolleyes: -I would have got up to see it if they'd have aired it live! ) Anyway, the commentators were going on how brilliant Nalbandian was in the 1st set and a half. Just so sad to see him (or any player) get that close have to retire.

That would be great if you sent me video of Sebastian Nicofan! (and yes, he still has his long hair :hug: ;) ) I think that was my Robert Palmer period and I loved that look then! (although he had "good" hair too :lol: )

Hey Kid-on the World Cup and bosses thing...I've there is some huge rate of employees calling in sick in the Netherlands during the World Cup but its ok because their bosses call in sick too! Don't know if its true or not but if it is what's up with your Dutch bosses????? :p :lol:

Elea and Axl-you have good weekends too! :wavey:

Gonzofan-a fellow Gilmore Girls watcher! :yeah: I love Loreli but I seriously doubt I'll be as "cool" with my girls when they get to be teens! :p

Germany :clap2:

A nice opening game with lot of great goals!! :)

I´m look forward to the final match Federer vs. Nadal at RG. And hopefully Roger can win :p ...but it´s hard to beat Rafa on clay.

NicoFan
06-09-2006, 06:55 PM
Alx and Elea - have a great weekend! :wavey:

Thanks for the info Sparko! Yeay - Sebastian still has his long hair. :yeah: What night is Gilmore Girls on???? I'll have to check him out.

And yeay for Germany winning! I watched a little bit. They seemed in control the entire time - Costa Rica couldn't get any offense going.

But booooooooooo Tommy! :haha: Hopefully Roger will win???? No no no - it must be RAFA! :lol:

kidnicky
06-09-2006, 07:07 PM
Oh Sparko, the same thing happened to me with the begining of the world cup, instead of having it in the main channels they had their stupid morning tv shows that I hate sooo much :o, but I guess that at least you'll have the final on sunday right?

So that's happening in the Netherlands?!?!?!! :haha: :haha: they're so excited for this world cup!! even more 'cause they're very close to Germany and I'm sure that they'd die if Germany wins the world cup :lol: there's some rivarly between them , am I right Tommy??

You've to learn from Lorelai Sparko :lol: .... and NicoFan don't hate but I don't know Sebastian either :p but it's not my fault!! I know from other bands as lons as I could get info from the music from the states when I was younger :angel:

kidnicky
06-09-2006, 07:11 PM
oh yes booooooo Tommy!! We're Rafa suporters here :p :lol:

Great win for your team huh?? Bravo to Germany :clap: although Í'm waiting to see Ballack playing the next match ;) .... to my dear american friends that doesn't know to much about futbol, take note, Michael Ballack, another one that has to be check! lol!

TommyB.
06-09-2006, 08:18 PM
Sorry but my girlfriend is a Federer-Fan and i like him too (a little bit). :D

So i can´t support Rafa...and he beat Roger again and again! :o

Your are right Kidnicky! There is a rivarly between the Netherlands and Germany since 1974. Germany beat them at the world cup final in Munich. But the revenge cam 1988 as Germany lost the semifinal against the Netherlands at the European Championship in Hamburg. Legendary futbol matches...

At the next match you can see our captain Michael Ballack! ;)

NicoFan
06-09-2006, 09:26 PM
Rafa beat Roger again and again - but Roger beats everyone again and again! :lol: Just teasing ya TommyB - Fed's a good guy. I just figure Fed won the Oz Open, and as far as I can see, they might as well hand him the Wimbledon trophy now - I can't see anyone else beating him. Or even at the US Open.

And Kid and Sparko - this is Sebastian in his prime - mama mia, I loved that hair!!! :lol:

oooh thanks for the explanation Tommy B!!! That's why my boss (that's dutch) said that couldn't write the name of Germany as a world champion this year :lol:

Thank God! that I'll see Ballack the next match :p

NicoFan woow!!! :eek: thanks for the great pic!!! there's something with us and the long hair guys right??? :kiss:

NicoFan
06-10-2006, 12:58 AM
Kid - Yeah I definitely have a thing for guys with long hair. I admit it - I was hooked on Nico from the first moment I watched him because of that hair!

Our rocker! :rocker:

:lol:

kidnicky
06-10-2006, 03:48 AM
oh yes me too!! I can't help myself about the long hairs and the ones that look like rockers :lol:

Nico with that hair, those eyes, the way he looks and those screams got me in a minute :kiss:

Oh and I've another one that I like, he doesn't have long hair but for me it's more than okay lol! Anthony Kiedis (sp) Red Hot Chilli Peppers, besides the Peppers are another greaat band!!!! :rocker2:

It's official now, Tommy will run away from this thread :haha: .... hey Tommy I saw Michael Ballack celebrating the goal in the banch .... I can't wait to see him play!!! (NicoFan check him out lol!)

Sparko1030
06-10-2006, 04:45 AM
:haha: OK, those guys are hot but they were not my "type" back then! They are gorgeous though! You can catch Sebastian now on Tuesday nights at 8pm EST Nicobug. And I 'm with you Kid, I always thought the lead singer from RHCP was :yeah: and he did had long hair at one time. That's how I remember him anyway. I have to add Eddie Vedder to the "hawt" list too!

As far as Nico's looks go, the thing that caught my eye was the fire in his eyes! (I love his hair though too ;) )

Congrats to the German team and TommyB! I hope Germany will continue to win!

Oh, and yes Kid, I expect the final should be live but this is how bad my luck is sometimes-its my turn to teach Sunday school that day so I may miss it anyway :sad: :lol:

TommyB.
06-10-2006, 09:43 AM
I never heard the name "Sebastian Bach" before. Thanks...i´m learnig a lot in this thread too. Please go on! :D

Tommy don´t know anything out of Tennis and Futbol! :lol:

NicoFan
06-10-2006, 10:18 PM
:lol: TommyB! I'm sure you know lots more than tennis and futbol! :lol:

And thanks Sparko for the Gilmore Girls time - I'll check it out this Tuesday (it can kind of replace American Idol).

RHCP's never did anything for me, but I loved Eddie Vedder - him, Kurt, and Chris Cornell (Soundgarden). Though I was totally pissed at Chris when he cut his hair. :mad: I wouldn't listen to Soundgarden for a year after that. :haha:

And everyone must feel sorry for me...I had a terrible day. :lol: I took the first part of the teacher cert exam -quelle nightmare!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :sad: I can't believe in 6 weeks I have to repeat this awful day and take the second half. :bigcry:

Sparko1030
06-11-2006, 01:24 AM
:hug: :hug: for you Nicofan for your awful day of testing. And there's more????? Well, that just sucks! :awww: I hope the rest of your weekend is much better to make up for it.

And :haha: about listening to Soundgarten after Chris Cornell cut his hair!!!! You take these guys cutting their hair very seriously! (but I know one must have their priorites straight ;) ) I do wonder what you would do if you-know-who cut his hair :eek:

NicoFan

:lol: I used to take long hair seriously...not anymore.

Except Nico....I would cry for a year if he cut his hair. :bigcry: Ayyyyy....let's not think about it. :eek:

NicoFan
06-11-2006, 03:25 PM
I know no one is here so I'm talking to myself :lol: but what a weird match. Rafa was terrible in the 1st set, Fed was terrible in the 2nd set, and now although I want Rafa to win, I have to wonder what Fed is doing out there. Johnny Mac hit the nail on the head - Fed was such a variety of shots in his arsenal, he needs to use them all. He's trying to match Rafa who is The Best clay court player I've seen in years by playing with only a clay court strategy. He obviously can still win - I can't see Fed giving up - but just a weird weird match. Totally different than what I anticipated after watching them in Rome. And now Fed is broken to start the 4th.

NicoFan
06-11-2006, 04:09 PM
Again...talking to myself. :lol:

But man Fed got lucky when Rafa was serving for the match - just clips the tape to fall over and Rafa couldn't stop his momentum and touches the net. But then Fed plays the point of his life. Now we're heading to a tb.

Starting to feel like Rome...could go either way....

The Netherlands won their match. :bigclap:

Not only the Dutch have got some problems with german footballplayer. The French too because of the semifinal of worldcup 1982. Schumacher :boxing:

NicoFan
06-11-2006, 05:37 PM

And Mexico is now up 2-1 - Kid must be happy! :)

Wait...make that 3-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

06-11-2006, 06:00 PM

TommyB.
06-11-2006, 06:09 PM

Congratulations Mexico :yeah: and to all Rafa Nadal Fans here! Nobody can beat him on clay at the moment.

NicoFan
06-11-2006, 06:59 PM
I don't think anyone can beat Rafa on clay right now. He's amazing to watch. :worship:

I felt bad for Fed though. I thougth he had a good chance after the 1st set.

But I can only feel just so sorry for him :lol: because I know that in 4 weeks he'll have the Wimbledon trophy over his head. And then probably the US Open trophy too.

NicoFan
06-11-2006, 07:11 PM

What number has Ronaldo ? I don't know him.
I think I just know Figo and Pauleta :hearts: who plays in France.
I just see him. Yes he's cute.

NicoFan
06-11-2006, 07:28 PM
He is cute, isn't he? And I guess more importantly, he's fast too - excellent player.

For others - he's #17.

NicoFan
06-11-2006, 10:11 PM
I looked up more on them on google. Now I remember Nuno Gomes from Euro 2004! :woohoo: :yeah: I was only watching with one eye today, and was mainly watching for Cristiano because I forgot about Nuno. Figo they showed a lot. :yeah: And I missed Pauleta's goal so didn't see a close up of him, but saw his picture online and he's cute too. :)

NicoFan
06-11-2006, 10:16 PM

Yeah, looks have nothing to do with it. ;) Honestly I haven't had time to watch World Cup yet-I've been watching so much tennis! I should be able to catch some this week though with RG over with.

06-12-2006, 01:31 PM
Hola :wavey:

You're so right girls! I'm a big sports fan but I don't have the fault that some of the best athletes in the world are cute also :lol:

So do you think I'm happy??? THIS WAS AMAZING!!!!!! People here is just crazy!!!! Celebrating in the streets in all the cities across the country, did you see the stadium?? It was almost like if the team was playing in Mexico, I'm sooooooo happy!!!!! The team played an incredible second time and I cried since the begining of the match to heard the national anthem beign sang for all the people and I also cried at the end when the goalkeeper dedicated this win to his father and all the team was crying with him and all his family was there, it was incredible ;) .... the next match it's going to be difficult but if the team keeps playing like that they have goood chances.

The Portugal boys are cute but you definetely have to check the italian team .... although it won't be the same without the great italian captain Paolo Maldini :sad:

Now I'm kind of confused, I've so many Chris on my mind that I don't know wich one is wich now lol! But I do like the one that it's the lead singer of Audislave, I think that's is the same Chris Cornell :lol:

And Sparko, don't even mention that possibility of Nico cutting his hair :bigcry: no no no Nico wouldn't do it!!!

Alx
06-12-2006, 01:55 PM

When will they play ?

Kid - I did see the celebrations in Mexico!!! They had it on TV for a long time after the game ended! I was really happy for them, and I thought of you the entire time.

And I think I'll be home for the second half of the Italy game. :yeah:

Yup, its the same Chris Connell. :lol: Soundgarden is no longer. :sad:

kidnicky
06-12-2006, 02:55 PM
You saw the celebrations NicoFan?? :eek: I'd be embarrased if you wouldn't know how we, the latins are :lol: you saw it with Nico and now you saw it in Mexico :p

I won't have the Italy match :bigcry: I'll be at work :ras: damn it!!! oh and I knew that it was the same Chris Cornnell :lol: although I do like the drummer from Audioslave, long hair again :rolleyes:

And now for the new one in futbol, pics from my favorite italian player, it's just a bummer that he's retired now :bigcry: :kiss:

Oh my Kid...you have very good taste. :yeah:

Yeah...I think Tommy is going to find another chat area...and I've noticed all the other guys have disappeared. :lol:

Sorry guys... :eek:

But I have to say...our little chat thread is getting lots of views - so someone is enjoying the pictures. ;) :lol:

06-12-2006, 03:33 PM
Thanks NicoFan! I post the pics especially for you :lol: ... I can't say anymore about Paolo otherwise someone could think that I've changed Nico for him :angel: .... but Italy won't be the same without him :p

I'm still entertaining myself watching all the pics that I found from him :devil:

You're right, all the guys have dissapeared SORRRRRRY!!!!! :lol:

Alx
06-12-2006, 04:45 PM
I don't understand why guys are disappeared. However we speak about football...:shrug:
It's not because we're looking the players that we don't take care of the game.
The Czech Republic has just score a beautiful goal.
:smooch: to all guys who go through here.

kidnicky
06-12-2006, 05:01 PM
Yes you're right, it was a great goal!! :eek:

Sorry NicoFan and Sparko, USA is losing 0-2 against Czech Republic ... don't tell anyone but I'm rooting for the Czech's :lol:

Like I said before, we don't have the fault that there're some gorgeous football players, we're not blind :angel: .... I'm still loooking at Paolo's pictures ... oh my I've to move to Italy :haha:

I hope he will win in 2 sets.

06-12-2006, 05:34 PM
:haha: We are bad! I guess we should invite the guys to post pics of their fav women athletes then it would all be even! But I'm like Axl-just keep posting the pics as you see fit Kid and Nicobug!

Looks like I'm going to have to root for the US this time (after Davis Cup ;) ) but they're still behind 0-2. Now this is a rookie question here but if a team looses are they out or how is it set up? (I just checked the score but I'm afraid the kids are controlling the TV right now and watching Spongebob :awww: )

Sparko1030
06-12-2006, 05:38 PM

kidnicky
06-12-2006, 05:41 PM
Czech Republic just did another great goal!! 3-0!!! :eek:

And the thing works like this Sparko, there're 8 groups, each group has 4 teams, and these 4 teams has to play each other, the 2 teams that have more points are the ones that continues to the next round, the points?? well 3 points for each match won, 1 point for a tied match and of course nothing if you lose a match. So at this moment it's not over yet but it's very important to win the first match otherwise you've to wait for a serious of combined results to see if you go to the next round or not. And if there're 2 teams with the same amount of points, it'd be decided for the difference between goals that the teams have made, in this case to have 3 goals help a lot :p

Alx
06-12-2006, 05:49 PM
And if there're 2 teams with the same amount of points, it'd be decided for the difference between goals that the teams have made, in this case to have 3 goals help a lot :p

Are sure about that ?

It's not the team who has beaten the other team which is at equality of points who is qualified for the next round ?

NicoFan
06-12-2006, 06:02 PM
We'll keep posting pixs! :lol:

I like both Gael and Jurgen - so may the best man win. ;) Happy Fer V. won :) , but Fer G and ToJo lost in doubles. :sad:

I'm rooting for the US too - but obviously they're not going to win this game. I didn't think they would. No one but US people will root for the US cuz no one likes us :lol: and we don't have great looking players to offset that. :lol:

Alx
06-12-2006, 06:16 PM
Gael won 7-6 7-6

Hey kidnicky - What do you think? It´s time to post some pics of Michael Ballack. ;)

kidnicky
06-12-2006, 06:21 PM
well now I'm confused about that Alx :lol: we'll wait for Tommy B who will tell us the correct answer .... but the rest is okay Sparko! is just about when 2 teams are tied that I'm having some doubts :p

The Czech republic won 3-0! :eek: good goals!!! and NicoFan I think that even though they're some good looking players in the US team, still nobody will root for them :angel: sorrrrry!!! but just one of the dutch guys came to say that for him he'd have liked an score of 8-0 and he's a guy and aparentely Holland doesn't have problems with the US, am I right??? :lol:

TommyB.
06-12-2006, 06:24 PM

No it´s the difference between goals if 2 teams have the same points.

kidnicky

Yes Tommy!!! but you've to help me with that, I'm still stuck looking Paolo's pics :lol:

I want Michael Ballack here too!!! :haha:
