Barrilete Cosmico - Cosmic Kite


Click on the tape to hear the legendary Victor Hugo Morales' poetic call of
the most unbelievable goal of the century by Diego Maradona

..la va a tocar para Diego, ahi la tiene Maradona, lo marcan dos, pisa la pelota Maradona, arranca por la derecha el genio del futbol mundial, y deja el tercero y va a tocar para Burruchaga...

Diegol, Diegol, Diego Armando Maradona...
Gracias dios, por el futbol, por Maradona, por estas lagrimas, por este Argentina 2 - Inglaterra 0...

This is the best translation I have found so far here:
…passes the ball to Diego, now Maradona with the ball, two people on him, Maradona touches the ball, the genius of soccer heads to the right, and leaves the third and passes to Burruchaga…
Always Maradona! Genius! Genius! Genius! ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta… GOAL!! GOAL!!!
I am going to cry! Oh, my God! How beautiful soccer is! What a goal! Diego! Maradona!
I am crying, forgive me please… Maradona, with a memorable run, with the most beautiful play of all time… cosmic podge…. which planet are you from? You let it seem so easy, and the whole country is a closed fist, is screaming for Argentina… Argentina 2 - England 0…
Diegoal, Diegoal, Diego Armando Maradona… Thank God, for soccer, for Maradona, for these tears, for this Argentina 2 - England 0…

Metegol in Buenos Aires

table football, foosball, fooseball, foozeball, fusball, fuseball, table soccer, metegol, taca-taca, futbolín, totó, pebolim, gits, footine, baby-foot, kicker

The game was first patented in the 1920s by an Englishman who wanted to replicate the game of football at home.

I found this table en el Mercado de Pulgas
on my latest trip to Buenos Aires and is part of my latest venture.


El Gol que Grito el Pais


Sometime as an 11 year old

“Mis sueños son dos. Mi primer sueño es jugar en el Mundial. Y el segundo es salir campeon en el Mundial” (I have two dreams. My first dream is to play in the World Cup and the second is to win the World Cup).
