We are slowly paving our way to the 2010 FIFA Football World Cup.*unenthusiastic* Yay! As a celebration let’s discover a bit more about Hungarian football, shall we? Do not worry if you do not like football this post, however seems like it, will not be about our ‘national sport’.

Ferenc "Puskás Öcsi" Purczeld Bíró, the Legend

Almost everyone who is into football (this is soccer for you guys from the other side of the world 😀 ) knows Hungarian football=Puskás. The legendary striker of the Hungarian national team and Real Madrid has sadly passed away in 2006. His era – the Hungarian Golden Team‘s era – is long over now for decades but football is still loved and – in my humble opinion – a bit too spoiled by the people even when the quality could only be described with a four letter world starting with S and ending with HIT.

Here we go. One more reason I can call SZDSZ a bunch of spineless cowards. They said yes to Gordon Bajnai. Yet again the will of The People is ignored in Hungary.

The left-wing has this crazy idea to make the people suffer for what they and the banks have messed up. They knew they needed a butcher, a soulless, spineless man who believes that what he is doing – no matter how many demonstrations were to come – is for the good of the people (even if it isn’t). In this sentiment, Gordon Bajnai is the perfect man for the job.
