Sunny Spain is getting plenty of top level sporting attention this year. First, the 33rd America Cup was held in Valencia, famous for their oranges (solar symbol - remember that "a breakfast without orange juice is like a day without sunshine", thank you Anita, you homophobic bitch). Second, Wimbledon saw Spaniard Rafael Nadal victorious on the lawn, and today (7/7), Spain defeated Germany in the World Cup semi-finals, bringing them to the finals against the Netherlands!
That’s awesome! It’s like Supes (solar hero) vs. Batman (Lord of the underworld). The match is scheduled for 7-11. Since, I believe, that we are currently experiencing a reconciliation of these two archetypes, I will be watching, between the lines, for an example. A secret love affair between opposing team mates, rumored about in the tabloid press would be perfect, but we shall see....
UPDATE 7-9: Well, well, well... gay intelligentsia report that Spain, Netherlands, and South Africa all grant full marriage rights to their LGBT citizens. In fact, they're the only countries competing in the World Cup that do. Click map to engorge.
