Lazio – 117 years passion

Good morning , dear blue fans and fans of all teams. Yesterday was one of the most marvelous dates in the football story of Europe, Italy and Bulgaria. Yesterday the brave team of Lazio was celebrating 117 years of its creation. All the Bulgarian and Levski fans, do know what it means for us , from our close relations and that our game for our 100 anniversary was played with them at  the stadium of Vasil Levski.

I am very passionate and trembling , when I write those lines. It is because Levski and Lazio have many things in common- the fans, the colors, the eternal love and passion. These are just the obvious things. We all have red enemies, which are created in artificial way, however. The post is about SS Lazio ( societa sportiva – sport club ,society). Let’s try to follow and mark the most important steps of creating and developing such big club and name :

  1. 9 January 1900– at Prati district of Rome, general Luigi Bigiarelli created the team and gave the name Lazio , as the province of Rome is known from ancient times – Lazium.
  2. It is the only club in Europe , which under the name Lazio has 44 teams participating in different disciplines and kind of sports.
  3. Symbol of Imperium, power and might – the eagle. It was and it is the perfect choice. Best choice ever.
  4. Colors of the club   – white and blue , like the sky , the sea and freedom. All of you had watched the home games of Lazio at stadio Olympico and had seen the flight of our talisman eagle Olympia, while she was flying all the scarfs and banners with white and blue – just pure harmony and beauty.
  5. Titles – only 2 titles of Italy and 6 cups , 2 Super Cups of Italy, 1 UEFA Cup and 1 UEFA Super Cup winner but…. In Italy , you are competing with teams, who are many times reacher then you like : Milan, Inter, Napoli, Juventus and Roma…
  6. Irriducibili Lazio – created in 1987  , they also celebrate 30th anniversary this year. One of the strongest fraction of supporters in Italy and in the world, they have around 17 k members, which are dictating everything in Curva Nord.
  7. Legends of all times and present days – these are the players , which gave everything for the idea for the power and immense passion , called SS Lazio : Pavel Nedved, Nesta, Giuseppe Signori, Favalli, Pierluigi Casiraghi , Tommaso Rocchi , Stefano Mauri , Miroslav Klose , Silvio Piola, Luca Marchegiani , Paolo Negro and many more.
  8. A Roma , La Lazio , ce solo la Lazio “- this is a chant from a very famous song of the fans . It means that the city of Rome is only for the fans of Lazio. These chant was sung , even from our friendly fans of FC Inter in Madrid, when they won the Champions Leagues versus Bayern Munich.
  9. Choreography – one of the best of them are created by Lazio fans, fro those who are interested , you may go and search in google and youtube, what I am speaking about : eagles, knights and many epic banners covering all the Curva Nord– this is pure perfection.
  10. Lazio fans in Bulgaria – I must admit that there are many of them , here in our country . When we play in Italy , their fans come and support us, if they play in Bulgaria or in a country close to use, we and our fans go to support them. Fresh example was the derby with Roma, when over 50 Bulgarians went to support SS Lazio.

What to say , dear friends, it is unique emotion to write about one of your favorite teams,it is unique because the club is existing mainly because of the love of the fans, because of the braveness of the players and the devotion of their presidents. Also without good trainers, we could have been lost or gone to Seria B , several years ago. And on the last place : Lazio ti vogliamo bene !!!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Spaich – hero and saint

Good evening , dear friends. First of all I wish you Happy New Year.In 2017 , I wish you all to have the luck to make all your dreams come true, to win in live, love and sports, to be good and generous and never to forget heroes, who makes us proud to  stand and say : ” We are Bulgarians”.

What is the nature of one hero ? How a hero defines himself and what is the difference between him and the others? On my humble opinion heroes have hearts with power and energy that cure, heel or erase…. Heroes are like stars , who show the way and then just vanish in the haze or in the pure space of their beliefs and love..

When I was a small boy, my grandfather told me stories of faith , belief and great men. Those men, heroes and saints were : Vasil Levski, Georgi Asparuhov – Gundi and Dimitur Spisarevski – Spaich. The last one is the pilot and hero, which marvelous sacrifice and military braveness are studied all around the world. It is not a  man , it is a super hero, who risked his life in order to safe the sky of Sofia , clear from bombs and enemy planes….

You have heard a lot about Spaich, this was the short name of this handsome warrior , given by his friends. After you read a lot about him , you find similarities with the life of Gundi:

  1. Both were total patriots – willing only the good times of Bulgaria. People who make everyone follow them just with a smile.
  2. Spaich and Gundi played for our favorite team Levski Sofia .
  3. Tall, handsome men – they were like movie stars. All women felt in love with them.
  4. As people with hearts of fire both died in accidents, Spisarevski risking and losing his life , hitting B24 fortress plane, Gundi and Kotkov died in the Alfa Romeo , near Vitinya. The fire was their life and they found death in it.
  5. Genius die young –  Spaich at the age of 27 , Gundi at the age of 28. How many of you can imagine what national diamonds and treasures we could have , if they could live at least 20 years more ? Unfortunately God takes his angels first 🙁
  6. Love of the people, not only in Bulgaria – survived American pilots went to the mother of Dimitur Spisarevski to give all their medallions and orders, just to show their great respect to this demon in the sky. Also in many military books, the attack of Spaich is written and learnt till nowadays. On the funeral of Gundi there were many people and teams from abroad,even now players of his time start to cry while they whisper his name.
  7. Graves covered with flowers – when you have time, go  in the central Sofia cemetery and see what people love means. Those two saints will never be forgotten by us, proud Bulgarians , fans of Levski and patriots.

Capitain Dimiturs Spisarevki is a rare person, it is like a candle in the wind, it is like a lake across the desert. He did all he could, because he kept in his eyes and heart the love for Bulgaria, the love for his countrymen , the love for the sky and the love for freedom and independence. He was not just a pilot, hero or marvelous saint, he is that light in the darkness of these bad times we live in. His heroic deed has come to show us , what people are we, we are and have to be always proud of our nationality – Bulgarians. So , dear captain Spisarevski ,I hope you are know with the angel smile – Gundi , somewhere watching and praying for better times for our country and for our beloved team – Fc Levski Sofia. In a conclusion, dear all my advise is never to forget our heroes , without them our lives and our mission on this planet , would be meaningless.
