Mike’s Bogota Blog: And If Galán Had Lived?.

galanAn interesting article. It´s fascinating to ruminate on the what-if’s of significant historical events, and for Colombia, none more significant than the tragic assassination of Luis Carlos Galan

I get the feeling you are right in what you say about him not being able to drastically change the course of this Nation, as great an Orator and true of moral compass, as he was. After all the most pressing concerns, the ‘Devils Horns’ of Corruption and Violence, have been firmly entrenched here since before the days of the ‘Liberator’ Simon Bolivar.

I’m from New Zealand, and I have a theory about Australians and their historically criminal genetic make-up (modern immigration aside). I also believe we can apply this theory, in some measure, here in Gran Colombia, after all, the very ‘Conquerors’  where of similar criminal stock, were they not?

Here’s Pele talking up Colombia’s chances at the World Cup

Con este video le piden a Pelé que no dé favorita a Colombia en el Mundial | Blu Radio.

Here’s Pele saying he reckons Colombia is one of the favourites for the World Cup.pele

Old Pele’s trying to put a bad spell on Colombia man, calling them one of the favourites (without the confirmed appearance of their best player) is just going to make all of Colombia, and them over-confident, and take their eye off the ball against Japan or Greece, and it will be all over…don’t listen to Pele, Colombia!colombian team

Besides that, he’s got a reputation as a bad caller of games. Romario said “Pele is a poet when he keeps his mouth shut”, current Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari delivered the legendary line, “I believe Pele knows nothing about football. His analysis always turns out to be wrong. If you want to win a title, you have to listen to Pele and then do the opposite.”

Let’s not forget that Pele also predicted Colombia would win the World Cup in USA 1994, they finished bottom of their group and went home after the first round.

Check this out…and let’s hope Pele listens to Romario!
