Brazilian goalkeeper feeds lover to dog

15 07 2010

This story is almost to bizarre to believe, but it was mentioned on the BBC as well as a Dutch entertainment show. Bruno Fernandes, keeper of Brazilian soccer club Flamengo is the suspect in an unthinkable crime . Together with 2 other people he killed his mistress, a model, and fed parts of her to his Rottweiler. Fernandes who is married was pissed his mistress got a baby. He did not even seem to regret what he did but only seemed to be sad to miss the World Championships in 2014 according to police reports. Wow.





Netherlands in final World Championships soccer

7 07 2010

I am not a big soccer fan, even though I played it as a kids for 8 years, but this is worth mentioning. The Netherlands made it to the final of the World Championships 2010 in South Africa and an estimated 3/4 dutch people watched the end last night. They won every match they played so far and beat Brazil and Uruguay in their last 2 matches. The win over Brazil was definitely very memorable. Holland has never won a World Championship, but did win the European one in 1988 with Gullit and Van Basten. I hope the final will be against Germany, their old-time rival. Germany is probably the better team and definitely mentally often has the upper hand, but anything can happen in a final. I will be watching sunday-night because I am invited to a soccer party. Last matches I watched were those of my nephews who might eventually become good enough for the dutch soccer team in 2025 or something. At least that is what they all think!! Love the fact that my boyfriend in New York is all into the soccer. He is a bigger fan than me for the Dutch.





World Champion hotdog eating

5 07 2010

In New York, American Joey Chestnut was the winner for the 4th yea in a row. In 10 minutes time he ate 54 hotdogs. Last year he broke the record and ate 68. ESPN showed the event live and the winner of 2001-2006 Japanese Takeru Kobayashi was arrested after storming the podium in anger for not being able to compete. It is always she skinny people winning. I am not surprised, I am skinny and eat like an animal. Super fast and a lot. Maybe I should compete sometime.





Gay news, Osbournes Pride Marshals in LA, homophobia in Asylum system, Prides in Rumania and Slowakia, lesbians raped in South Africa

24 05 2010

Kelly and Sharon Osbourne will be the Grand Marshals for the Los Angeles Gay Parade. They have spoken out a lot of gay issues and have always been very supportive of the gay community, so great choices. Better than Paris Hilton and her mom e few years back. Saturday Sharon hosted an Equality California event at their mansion to celebrate Harvey Milk Day.

U.K. gay rights group Stonewall just finished an extensive study that shows that almost all gay and lesbian asylum-seekers are returned to their home-country. Many are send back with the words they should just live discreet. Even though in some countries in the middle east and africa gays are really being killed for their sexuality. I totally an in favor of thorough vetting of asylum-seekers also in the Netherlands. But we do accept too many that do not need to be here and can go home and do not accept others that are in danger of their lives and would totally integrate in our society.

While Gay Pride in Rumania this weekend was a success with hundreds of participants and no violence, Rainbow pride in Bratislava was a disaster. Thousand people had accumulated on the centre to celebrate when 80 extremist skinheads started to throw stones and smoke bombs. Police only caught 8!! After the incident police asked for the Pride to be cancelled.

South Africa is all in the centre of the news because of the upcoming World Championships soccer in a few weeks. Groups have asked for people to be aware that a lot of women are being raped there because of their sexuality, being gay is still a big taboo there. One in every two women gets raped and the rate is highest in the slumps of Johannesburg and Capetown. There men still think they can “cure” women and make them straight by fucking them. Repulsive.





Sports, Jankovic wins Indian Wells, Kramer World Champion speed skating

22 03 2010

Not Kim Clijsters, Maria Sharapova or Justine Henin won the crown at the big tournament in Indian Wells the last fortnight, but surprisingly it was Jelena Jankovic. She beat Caroline Wozniacki in the finale with 6-4 6-2. It was the first big win of Jankovic in ages and I am happy for her, always liked her. Sharapova is injured and Clijsters and Henin desperately need more match rhythm, that combined with the absence of the Williams’ sisters makes this not so likely to be repeated by Jankovic in Miami this week.

At the last tournament on the speed skating calendar in a sold out stadium in Heerenveen, the Netherlands(the only place to get a full stadium in a tournament after the Olympics) Sven Kramer became World Champion Allround. This is a two-day tournament over 4 distances. Jonathan Kuck from the U.S was the big surprise at number 2, number 3 was Havard Bokko. With the ladies Martina Sablikova from the Czech Republic was the best, before Canada’s Kristina Groves and dutch Ireen Wust was number 3.
