Team in blue continues quest for a World Cup berth
It's time to take a break from talking about politics on this blog to celebrate the continuing success of El Salvador's national team in its quest to qualify for the 2010 World Cup soccer championship in South Africa. Yesterday, the Salvadorans beat Mexico 2-1, and moved into third place in the hexagonal qualifying matches. The top 3 places automatically qualify for the World Cup. The team's star, Eliseo Quintanilla, scored a late game goal on a penalty kick to provide the margin of victory. The Salvadorans will play at Honduras on Wednesday.
!David venza a Goliat!
I suppose that the only negative blotch on an otherwise spectacular afternoon, came from the fans themselves who displayed before the world their unsportsmanlike and rowdy rabble conduct.
It's inconceivable that the Civilian Police could not control the shameful behavior of these crowds running rampant and turning loose their lowest instincts. The unbelivable harassing of the visiting team at their hotel and then later, even jeering as the Mexican National Anthem played. Shameful!
Perhaps it's unfair and difficult to blame the Salvadoran fans though, let's remember that El Salvador only has a glimpse of glory once every 30 years! And I'm sure the fans realize that this fleeting moment in the sun will quickly fade as the Costa Ricans bring reality back to El Salvador with an overwhelming tsunami of goles.
It was back in 1970 when El Salvador's futbol mattered last, and after so many years of frustracion I suppose the fans deserve to celebrate with the tune, "El Pajaro Picon Picon."

Ya conocemos a los Salvatruchos y no obstante su sucio juego al no mas vayan perdiendo, la elegante seleccion nacional de Costa Rica les va dar baile y les va meter una lluvia de golazos...
Si lo dudan, digame cual otro pais tiene tanto ladron y sigue consideradose como pais viable? Nosotros los Mejicanos hasta tenemos ex-presidentes con castillos en Irlanda, mientras los Salvatruchos no llegan a mas que una casucha de campo alla por Panchimalco.

A complete ethical madeover is a complement. From what I saw at of that game, Salvadoreans need human decency and manners. They sport fans seems to be lacking in about everything and can be defined as cheap rabble.
I hope they get their candy asses kicked by the mancha brava catracha, because the Ticos will overwhelm that rabble with "una goleada de loco."

1) Un complejo de inferioridad, y
2) Una envidia cronica hacia los demas.
No need to go out of it like that, but you do make a good point. My people need to find another way to deal with some if not all their disappointments. It is good to constantly bring it to their attention because if left unchecked they will keep on living with the idea that being a pig is a normal thing when it is not. This form of behavior is something that I wish my people would at least change here in the US. Show that we can be civilized to the rest to the world. Until that day comes I can only look upon that the part of my peoples in disappointment. Thankfully I pressure my kids to not throw garbage on the street. To pick it up and put it in a public garbage can, hopefully most gringos will think different of us.
I too hopefully with that Salvadoreans would join humanity and learn to respect the rights of others, and to not be so envious of anyone they feel inferior to because of their own chronic inferiority complex.
We certainly don't want to live in an overturned garbage can like the Salvadoreans do.
It's all a matter of education, and education that starts in the home.

Mi novia me dice durante nuestras diarias sesiones intimidades, que no soy un gallito fino y con mucha clase. Que no soy nadita como los gallos chorompos que unicamente hacen malicias y quieren asustar con el petate del muerto.
Este es un gallo giro bien jugado que nunca se raja y que en cualqier patio canta. Cuando los gallos chorombos me ven, se ponen a chacaracear como gallinas culecas.
Ya no se ven gallos de verdad, solamente se ven gallinitas culecas pero que ni huevos ponen.
Arriba el Gallo Giro de Tamaulipas.
El que no se le corre, se queda sembrado para gallo con chicha.
Si tiene 10 mil dolaritos para perder y un gallo para jugar, ya sabe aqui se le acepta y muy en privado.
No existe familia que no tenga por los menos uno de ese depravador ya en los yunai de illegal.

From the way you write English I can tell it is not your first language. It also indicates how ignorant you are. It seems to me that the one that suffers from a complex is you and not the Salvadoran people in general.
I am Salvadoran and I don't live in an "overturned garbage" like you say.
Your offensive words indicate your hatred and envy. I don't know where you're from; neither do I care. You need to learn to respect. I'm pretty sure you're the one that comes from a garbage dump.
You also said:
"It's all a matter of education, and education that starts in the home."
What education are you referring to? Not yours, I assume, because it is evident that you are not educated.
I am Salvadoran, and I am educated like are many Salvadorans.
Don't be so ignorant as to confuse a few zealot football fans with all Salvadorans. That is just ridiculous.
Next time, look at where you’re from and at your own conditions as a human being before you leave such insulting remarks.
