Brazil and Columbia Win Satirical Comedy World Cup Report

Brazil won a nail-biting paw-crossing penalty shootout against Chile yesterday, and Julio Cesar, the main greenYgrey goalie of the World Cup, was the top hero. Later, Columbia beat Uruguay with another greenYgrey goalie, David Ospina, making a couple of cracking crucial saves to keep a clean-sheet and help Columbia through to a quarter-final meeting with Brazil on Friday night.

Brazil World Cup 2014 Comedy Satire

Yes folks, it’s got to the stage now where only one of two great greenYgrey goalies can continue on the dust sandy path to World Cup glory, as they meet on Friday night in the quarter-final… unless Columbia choose a change goalie kit, as Brazil’s are both greenYgrey.

Hi, it’s Martin ‘Werewolfie’ Adams, with a satirical comedy football report from Brazil’s World Cup 2014.

Brazil v Chile

Julio Cesar, who has lit up the World Cup making super saves while wearing one of two  great greenYgrey goalie shirts,  made a thrilling reflex save in the second half to help Brazil to a 1-1 draw, before saving the first two penalties in the penalty shoot-out.

Then his goalkeeping skills and great greenYgrey goalie kit (the grey dominant one, although they are both wonderful) might have made Jara aim for the very corner, and he hit the post to give Brazil a 3-2 penalty shoot-out victory.

Here’s some images of Cesar in action; the greenYgrey kit and bib celebrations afterwards; and last but certainly not least, a Brazil fan getting in on the greenYgreying with a World Cup winning trophy holding anthropomorphic costume hugging gYgboo:

Columbia v Uruguay

Julio Cesar will have to be on his best form on Friday, as Columbia have been one of the best teams in the World Cup so far.

James Rodriguez starred in their 2-0 win over Uruguay last night, with his first of two goals especially good; but at the other end David Ospina made a crucial couple of saves to deny Uruguay a way back into the game in the last quarter.

After Columbia’s reserve goalie Mondragon made greenYgrey gYgboo history in their last group match, here’s Ospina making the first of his super saves:

Let the greatest greenYgrey goalie kit win on Friday…

Chile Mine Rescue Location Poem

The Chile mine rescue was a great good news story this week, and it reminded Marc Latham of a Folding Mirror poem he wrote a while ago, after Wendy Webb of the Norfolk Poets, Tips and Etips requested contributions to a Crossing Deserts ebook.  Marc Latham thought his experience of travelling high and low in Chile’s Andean Atacama desert would fit the Crossing Deserts theme, and the Folding Mirror format would be an ideal format, so he wrote this poem:

ATM in the AM: Atacama Thought Mission in the Morning

high in the Andes
on an early morning sojourn
passing lakes of clear cerulean
nestled amongst snow capped zeniths
our bus plummets

through the moon valley plateau

into fertile Camanchaca
hydrated by marine fog agua
vizcachas bask in golden sun
follow the rays for fun
low on the Pacific

Thanks also to Wendy for including Marc Latham’s Sights of the Sagarmatha Himalayas poem in the latest Tips, and Caroline Gill poetry for publicising it.
