Skate Park

Skate Park

While driving to Maki yesterday at Marina Waves I noticed the Skate Park at the side of the parking lot was open. I had passed it a few times before but the lights were always off but yesterday they were open and some kids were riding their BMX bikes up and down the ramps. On the way out I got a better look (while still driving by in the car) and I noticed the two kids had similar blue helmets and bikes. This is why I am guessing that the park actually rents out bikes, boards, blades and gear. I should probably pass by another day and try to get more details unless a reader already has more details and can share it with us. It looks wayyyy better then the one that used to be located in the basement of the Salmiya palace Hotel.

update: here are some better pictures taken by Yo Ghurt [1] [2] [3]

The Madden Curse

Post by Mark

Football players whose pictures grace the covers of Madden NFL video games are doomed. I had heard of the curse before but I just saw the facts to back this curse up and its just freaky. [Link]

Desktopia can automatically change your desktop picture based on a specified time of the day. For example a beautiful sunrise at 7:00AM or a starry sky at 10:00PM. [Link]

Cool pictures of the Brazilian soccer players in their locker room. The site the pictures are hosted on looks like a gay site though. [Link]

How Brazilian soccer players get their names

Post by Mark

An interesting article I found via Kottke that talks about how Brazilian players dont have last names (Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Cafu, Fred..) and why that is. [Link]

Players with the same first name often change their moniker to differentiate themselves. In recent decades, there have been several Ronaldos at the national level. One became known as Ronaldao, meaning “big Ronaldo.” Another became Ronaldinho, meaning “little Ronaldo.” When another Ronaldinho came along in the late 1990s, he was called Ronaldinho Gaucho—that is, “little Ronaldo from Rio Grande do Sul.” Eventually, the first Ronaldo left the Brazilian national squad, so Ronaldinho became Ronaldo. Ronaldinho Gaucho became Ronaldinho.
