Patxanga

Patxanga is a familiar word in Spanish to refer to a friendly match or game of any kind played just for fun. Well, it is also the name of my football team in ESTEC's football league ;-)


Yesterday, we had an appointment with history as we were playing the quarter finals of the league after a quite long regular season. We had managed to avoid the toughest teams by ending up in a meritorious sixth position. Our rival was Harbour Lights, a bunch of crazy Scottish who are famous for their not-so-fair play... Last time, some of us ended up with bruises all over...


Well, we played a good match and could overcome a 1-3 against to set a 4-3 until the last minute... In that moment, history reminded us we were Spanish playing football in quarter finals and tragedy eventually unleashed. The rest of the story is quite typical: the other team scored when there were only 40 seconds left or so, and they beated us in the penalties...


Anyway, we had fun and we can still play for the 5th position. Now a nice shot showing who we are.

¿Por qué tu camiseta es más fosforita que las demás?
¿Eres el nuevo E.M.M.?

Jeje, pues resulta que no es la oficial del equipo... es una de caminos valencia que me dio mi hermano y que estuve usando hasta tener la de verdad...

Siento mucho no ser el nuevo EMM ;-)

Me ha costado más de 2 segundos descifrar lo de E.M.M. ... lamentable por mi parte.

Muy tocho lo de la liga de ESTEC. ¿En tu equipo sois todos españoles? En ese caso es casi más importante quedar por delante de Francia que de Escocia :P
