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 !!!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Sports madness

Hello, dear all. It is raining in my country and I am very positive about how we will grow up. I say “we”  , because without you, my blog would have gone away, long time ago. Writing is not just a pleasure , it is an adrenaline that does not let you down till you finished your post, or until the last word of idea that is coming regularly to your mind and dreams.

The dream come trough is when you watch, participate, feel, love, adore and cannot live without sports. In my daily routine I do practice fitness, basketball and table tennis. It is no need to explain you what energy you have and how powerful you feel after practicing the most beloved sports. It does not matter from the age or from your social status, but sports are the most valuable motive and scenario, which helps us to survive during the long way called life and freedom.

Have you ever thought that the most free people are the mad ones, they do not obey rules and do follow directions , whispered by their inner voice. We have come today to speak about sports madness and how I had such one several years ago. It was a crazy decision taken by impulse and I never regret about it. I gave myself a word , that I will watch sports events for 24 hours, no matter of the sport, no matter of where the event is watched – PC or TV, just watching and obtaining emotions .During that process , I tried to keep all of my senses open, because afterwards, I was about to make an analysis.

This day was a sunny Saturday morning. I started with football from South Korea, with the morning coffee. The next episode was a game from Japan, J-League 2.( When you are totally in love with sports, the time just passes like that, like a blink of an eye, or just a click with  fingers). The third game was Philippine’s basketball game(in this country, they do play very nice and interesting games, with many players from US and the rules of NBA ). On the scene came the early game from UK, Premier League on the TV. There are moment, when you just hear how the fans are singing. I have my favorite moments , when I listen to fans singing from Italy, UK ,Germany,Japan and Argentina. The most memorable thing is that they sing not only during the time-play of the game , they sing even before and after it. The feeling is gorgeous. It was time to change the sports and watch some tennis. I love Nadal, Rafa, This is the guy who knows how to play not only in clay. He has very smart hits and is moving like a tiger all around the corner, chasing every hard ball accepted. In my opinion there are top 5 best tennis player for all time – Nadal,Djokovic, Federer , Agassi and Sampras.  Suddenly , I felt interest to watch football again and switched the TV on Eurosport for a German, Bundesliga game. I have to say big thanks and to ask you to move your hats down for the fans of Borussia Dortmund ,Schalke 04 and Bayern Munich. In all of the games of these teams, I had watched, they were that noisy , that the feeling was as you have been in the center of volcano or like storm going strong. During the time of that marathon, I tried not to be for a long period away from my source of sports madness.It was 20:05 and was about time for the early game in NBA. When I watch basketball, I do totally crazy. I begin to shout , to jump , to say bad words 🙂 I am totally in the game. I love this game and most magical and amazing team is when the ball goes in the basket, trough the net. Three hours later , there was another game from the best basketball Championship all around the globe. I watched a lot and decided till 09:00 in the morning on the next day to watch only baseball. It was not long ago, when I traded baseball. It is not that popular here , in Europe, but it is a sport with a special magic and blaze of glory.

After the final game ended , it was time to mane an analysis, about what was the feeling during that 24 hours marathon in watching different sports:

  1. My mind was full with new impressions and ideas. My eyes were hurting , but it did not matter. I was happy.
  2. Sports is some special world, when you are in the deep parts of it, you never want to leave it or to stay away from it. I was one with fans, with players and trainers.
  3. I was united with ball, net , bat and the spirit of the different games. I watched the eyes and the strategies in different games , no matter if they were individual or team ones including.
  4. I watched every game in a different language . But the most powerful and inspiring thing is that the language of sport is one and it is unified. If you are in love with what you watch and practice , you perfectly realize what and how is happening.
  5. My adrenaline was on an unknown level. This was what I wanted to achieve, to jump that high in order to get to a new orbit. I love that orbit and that place.

Actually, my dear friends, I introduced you to a small part of my universe. I guess, you liked being part of it. If I was not in deep love with sports, we might never had met each other. The pleasure is all mine . See you in the next post. Be mad for every thing that you do, in order to shine not just to glitter 🙂
