World Cup 2010 – Nosara
“Voodoo to the Orange”!....

Post goal Spaniard hug


…..and several Spanish fans proceeded to stick toothpicks that had been leftover from the food into the poor, defenseless fruit, “more”! others screamed…and they peeled it with a knife that lay over the Gilded Iguana's bar the afternoon of Sunday, July 11th.

They were the two Spaniards that represented the Red Fury on this side of the globe: Pepe and José, who stirred up the over 30 spectators that enjoyed the World Cup Final. Inside the restaurant, on the other side of the garden, more fans were watching the match, but their energy was calmer as they sat comfortably in their chairs, eating while watching the game.

From time to time one of them, with a beer in hand and curiosity in their eyes, would peek into the pool's bar, attracted by the “Noooooo……!!!!!!! or the “Penalty! Penalty”! shouts that came from the anxious Spaniard's throats.

Their anguish was palpable... the second half was almost over and the ball failed to enter the Dutch net. The idea of going to penalty kicks was unthinkable, they wanted to win the World Cup with one of those goals that is remembered forever, a goal that will last through history; and then finally, in the 115th minute, Iniesta did it: Goooooaaaal!!!! screamed the over 30 soccer fans. Hugging here and there, as Spain established itself as the World Champions and the poor orange they had done voodoo to ended up being torn apart by the teeth of Pepe Bernanez Blanes, the Spaniard who managed to convince the only two Dutch people present to join in the celebration.

Cheers for Spain...Grande España!!!!
