The Wassail Song (Here We Come A-Wassailing) - traditional English Christmas carol; performed by The John McCarthy Chorale
Considerada por algunos como la mejor obra del maestro Kurosawa. Donde nos presenta la exploración sobre la muerte de un hombre, se nos presenta la película en una serie de flashbacks y tiempo presente. Takashi shimura, quien da vida al burócrata kanji watanabe, quien al enterarse que tiene cáncer de estomago y su vida esta por terminar, aprende a valorar, lo que hizo y dejo de hacer. Tratando de encontrar un sentido a su vida
Deborah Kerr & Burt Lancaster in “From here to eternity”
The Group of Opportunity
It could have been boring, mundane, even uneventful. It could have been straightforward, unexciting, deserving of a shrug of the shoulders and a “meh.” A second consecutive kind World Cup draw for the U.S. Men’s national team, this time perhaps in the “Group of Life” with Switzerland, Ecuador and France, may have provided more room for comfort and confidence for American fans ahead of June, but may as well have offered less to truly capture the imagination of the neutral.
What the United States - as well as Germany, Portugal, and Ghana - have gotten instead, if not the toughest group in Brazil 2014, is the most drama-filled pairing of them all. For a spectacle that comes just once every four years, Friday’s draw at the Costa do Sauípe Resort in Bahia provided three match-ups that are truly worth the wait.
As Jozy Altidore said after the draw, "this isn’t the Group of Death, but a Group of Opportunity."
Anonymous asked: Well if you americans didn't want to travel 9000 miles to achieve this "hell" you could have just chose not to participate the world cup :)
I don’t know if you have a map at your disposal, anon… But last time I checked, the USA is a vast, vast country. In our domestic league the MLS, the Los Angeles Galaxy and New England Revolution (Boston) travel 6,000 miles round trip to play each other. Imagine LA also playing New York, D.C., Philly, Toronto (MLS has three Canadian teams), and in a few years, Orlando. That, to so many European and African players is a travel itinerary so hellish it is as if a Premier League team had to travel east of Moscow every other week. So the USA will be more prepared for the thousands of miles of travel more than most any other nation in the World Cup. We, as well as the three other North American nations, will also be ready for the searing 80%+ humidity of the Amazon after half of our games in qualifying demanded us go into those sweltering environments. So if anybody is going to be scared about the travel and even the weather, it won’t be these Yanks.
Training time and recovery time will be issues, but we’ve a fit, fit team that will not wilt in the tropical environment in the final 20 minutes in the game as I imagine some European teams will. This is a second half team that has a penchant for scoring late goals. Maybe if you saw how nasty the conditions for CONCACAF qualifying is, you would understand.
