The vaunted Cuban National team is losing to lowly Panama 4-2 in the seventh inning. With the results of the game still in question, I thought Id offer up a cubanism or two for Team Cuba:
Cubanism: Perro que ladra no muerde.
Translation: Barking dogs dont bite.
Cubanism: No escupas p’arriba.
Translation: Dont spit upwards.
Cubanism: No te tires el peo mas alto que el culo.
translation: Dont fart higher than your ass.
Take your pick.
Update: Apparently, fidel castro himself has called the Cuban dugout and ordered the team to score. It’s tied 4-4 now. Perhaps he offered up his own cubanism for his beleaguered team: Si no ganan no jaman.
Update: Cuba takes it in 11, 8-6. Their team’s last out in the top of the elleventh was on 3rd base, arguably one of baseball’s biggest no-nos.
Update: Adding insult to injury, the USA team is down 0-7 to the Canadians. The Canadians. The Big Guy upstairs sure has a sense of irony.
