15 November 2016. Echoes of the Past: Closing Ceremony, 22nd Summer Olympics (4 August 1980, Moscow USSR)

____________________________________

The USA tried to ruin the 1980 Olympics… it boycotted them and pressured other countries to do so. The Anglos are sanctimonious and smarmy. I hate their pretence and their arrogant juvenile ways. They point the finger of censoriousness at others… whilst their own hands drip with the blood and gore of those they stepped on to steal their riches. One of the worst of the lot was Hillary Clinton… she threw tantrums… when she did so, she had countries bombed and people murdered. I’m glad that she lost the election. I’m not so sure about Trump either… “Make America great again”… I think not… The Trail of Tears, slavery, Wounded Knee, the Bonus Marchers, the “Gilded Age”, and Hiroshima, to name just a few. America isn’t unique, exceptional, or indispensable. It’s just a normal country like any other… which is why they should’ve taken part in the Moscow Olympics. However, the Anglos had to posture and preen themselves. They did it again this year… when will the foolishness end?

RIA-Novosti Presents…The Legendary Footballer Khristo Stoichkov took the Cossack Oath

On Saturday, 23 July, during a visit to Starocherkassk, former Bulgarian football great Khristo Stoichkov (1966- ) (on the right) took the Cossack oath.

******

Stoichkov did this as part of his visit to Rostov-on-Don. In the image above, one of the atamans of the Don Cossacks inducted the Bulgarian football star into the Cossacks.

******

During his visit to the Don, Stoichkov met with members of the Rostov Oblast administration, they discussed the development of youth football in the region.

******

In addition, Stoichkov visited the “Rostov” Institute, where he talked with students at the school club. He also visited one of Rostov’s children’s’ homes. In the image above, Stoichkov dances with the soloists of a Cossack ensemble after his initiation.

******

Stoichkov, who’s legendary in world football circles (he’s known as “The Dagger”, and his on-pitch ferocity is famous), will stay in the southern capital until 24 July, and he’ll return to Bulgaria after the FC Rostov-FC Dinamo match on Sunday.

8 July 2011. Who Woulda Thunk It? The Mud Football World Championship… I Kid You NOT

This was a scene at the Mud Football World Championship in Hyrynsalmi (Kainuu Region) FINLAND. Yes… this was a real event. Reflect on this… these guys ENJOY this, and they’re going to do it again (and again). It does give one an insight into the masculine character, doesn’t it? Count me out, please…
