And fuck yeah! They oh sooo did it! They've won the World Cup, and they've done it playing damn good football!!!!
(and no, no LJcut for this, it's not THAT long)


We passed to the final thanks to Puyol, and the victory goal came from Iniesta, as a Barça fan and supporter I assure you I couldn't be more happy than that.
But that's not what made me cry. There was one image, one first image that brough tears to my eyes, because damn! I couldn't be more proud of my boys. And I said one first image because in the following celebrations it became pretty usual, but that first time... Oh man! That first time when Carles Puyol and Xavi Hernandez i Creus celebrated the world victory running around the field with La Senyera... Gods... I loved them so much just right then.



For all of us catalan people that have been supporting and enjoying this Spain NT I think it was the best present you guys could have give us. And of course! I don't forget that the rest of our guys wore it on while they celebrated in Madrid on Monday but... It's just that... that first time was... there are no words... Look at my  "OMG I can't believe it! I love you so much and I'm so proud of all of you" face. I stood still like that for a few minutes lol :)

Hace unas semanas (mes y algo quizás) me crucé por casualidad con el maravilloso mundo del fandom futbolero. En inglés, en castellano, en catalán... ¡da igual! El hecho es que existe y había estado hasta ese momento totalmente desconocido por mi.
En ese momento escribí un post en plan "OMG! Fics de hottie playes!!! Squeeeee!!!", un post que nunca fue publicado por mi absoluta pereza y la muerte inesperada de Starsky The Second (mi difunto ordenador). Oh I still could have published that post, ahí está guardado en mi Gdocs pero una vez  pasa la novedad, ¿qué gracia tiene?
Y luego vino el Mundial de Fútbol, y el hecho de que odio publicar desde mi Snowy (mi mini Netbook) porque Quito (mi laptop) lleva en coma desde hace meses al negarme por el momento a pagarle la operación de cambio de hard-drive... Pero en fin.  Que ahora ya no viene al caso. Cuando practicamente me he leído en primera ronda todo fic de los ships que me han llamado la atención la emoción se desinfla...
Ahora escribo esto desde el recién nacido Starsky The Third, y estando a punto de iniciar mi segunda ronda de lectura fandomera, con La Roja en simifinales y el cabreo que llevo por todo el tema del Estatut y de la bipolaridad mental que sufrimos en Catalunya con algunos temas (futbol-política-nacionalismo) he decidido que sudo de ponerme al día de todos los post que me había dicho a mi mima que escribiría (uno por cada uno de los tres temas anteriormente citados). Más que nada porque me conozco, y aunque ya veo las cosas un poco más en frío, a vistas de la manifestación del Sábado (Som una Nació, nosaltres decidim)  prefiero no soltarme porque sinceramente, sólo sirve para cabrearme más.

Sooooo... PC nuevo, La Roja (sí, la selección española) se enfrenta mañana a Alemania en semifinales (miedo me da, por más que diga el pulpo Paul), el sábado a la mani (a la mierda mi finde playero de panching en Sitges pero el deber es el deber y si aprobé con mi voto ese Estatut tengo derecho a protestar por el recorte sufrido) y ya aguantaremos los chaparrones que vendrán (porque vendrán) a base de abstracción fanfiquera, total ahora sigo un fandom más así que algo habrá siempre para leer.

I'm writing, and I usually I have the radio on, M-80, because I like revival. It's 7 pm, time for the last news, and one of the news was exactly this shit:

"Aznar cree que las políticas lingüísticas de las autonomías están atentando contra los castellanohablantes".

WTF!!! I hate that stupid git, I really do. Why can he just shut up?

Well, you can read the full thing over here: País Digital

It's the worst piece of shit I've ever read. And it's absolutely a lie. Half of my family are not catalanspeakers, my grandparents from my mother side are from Andalusia, my mother and my aunts are from Andalusia too. My grandparents, after 40 years living in Catalonia don't speak Catalan at all, they even can't understand it well enough, and they don't have any problem, they don't feel attacked or unwanted here.
Obviously if  you go to a small town in the more rural parts of Catalonia you can find people who are not used to speak too much Castilian. So what?
And maybe you can think that we try to impose our language in schools, well, I don't think so. We just try to protect our language from extinction, I don't think it's a crime.

I believe the problem is that some people usually forget that here in Catalonia we speaks Catalan, is our language, our history and heritage. And maybe we are part of Spain, and maybe we also can speak Castilian, but that doesn't matter. The point is that even if we are absolutely bilingual, let never forget that we are primarily Catalan speakers because there are Castilian speakers enough in the world and not so many of Catalan.

Sorry about that rant, it's just that it unnerves me. I have friends from foreign countries here in Catalonia that have learned both languages, Catalan and Castilian, and they don't complain, they are all right and understand the efforts of small nationalities to save their languages, so why can the people of Spain understand it as well? Why?
