Seeing Ivan Kaviedesâ€™ post-goal tribute to fallen teammate Otilino â€œSpidermanâ€ Tenorio capped a wonderful game of foot-ball and caused me to reminisce about my days as â€œAye-Ayeâ€ the world famous luchador.
In 1936, Salvador Lutterroth, a local rapscallion and wrestling promoter asked me to join his wrestling association. I had not yet built my vast media empire, so I took his offer and joined the lucha libre. I became â€œAye-Ayeâ€ because my fellow wrestlers felt I had the mammalâ€™s good looks. My mask was yellow, not unlike, Kaviedes’, and I was a terror in the ring. My signature move, the Flapjack Death Powerbomb, was feared by all opponents. Ultimately, I was too popular a gringo for the league. I was unmasked in a fixed match against â€œThe Latin Loverâ€ in â€™39.
Best Game: Ecuador v. Costa Rica. Three wonderful goals and one awesome mask! (Side note: Iâ€™ve upgraded Swedenâ€™s boring attack from â€œFjusâ€ to â€œBillyâ€)
Best ESPN Factoid: Honestly, Iâ€™ve stopped listening.
Best face paint:
Smart choice. Vertical stripes have a slimming effect.
The Final Whistle: “Bongiovio, a Bon Jovi cover band, will perform Saturday in Kaiserslauternâ€™s Stiftsplatz after the game, from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.” from the June 16, 2006 report in Stars and Stripes. The Germans know how to party!
