» It's pronounced “Koo-bee-tza”!

In a few moments the show in Bahrain with our Robert Kubica's main role will start. And the foreigners should really learn how to pronounce the name, cause they will really need it :-)

How to celebrate Kubica's Pole Position? As an experiment I bought Lithuanian wheat beer Švyturys.

» The final countdown

It's going to happen tomorrow – the final race of 2007 Formula 1 season. I wonder which one of the three World Champion title pretenders will have the most luck…

» Kubica - bad luck limit reached

Phew, those who followed the F1 Canada Grand Prix in Montreal can now breathe normally. Robert Kubica must have used up all the bad luck limit this season, though on the other hand one can also talk about lots of luck, as he was not injured. Honestly, when I saw the accident, the one is San Marino, Imola track, 1994 crossed my mind. It was when Ayrton Senna was not so lucky. I was also watching the race live in TV and I remember commentators' suggestions that maybe he moved his head after the crash and maybe he'll survive. Unfortunately that was not the case.

» Good vs. Evil foosball table

Haha, a really funny foosball table, which features the teams of Good and Evil. In the first team you will find Mother Theresa, Flash Gordon, Mahatma Gandhi and of course God himself. The opposite team features such celebrities as Adolf Hitler, Jack the Ripper and Lucifer. I won't post the link to the table's maker, because they have a horrible website made in Flash.

When talking about foosball, I'd like to mention that I almost never played it for all my life until I came to Google, where I was quickly drawn into the game by my colleagues.

» Fernando Alonso the champion of Formula 1 2006!

And finally Fernando in the last race of the season held on Interlagos curcuit in Brasil finished on the second place, which was more than enough to score his second World Championship title. Obviously, an important event of the final part of the season was the announcement of Michael Schumacher's retirement from Formula one, as well as his outstanding performance in recent races. Obviously he was also keen to get the top podium spot in Brasil, but technical difficulties were against him. Nevertheless, big respect for his crazy chase today from the last place, when he was almost a lap behind, to the fourth position at the end. Bar the flat tyre, Ferrari looked invincible.

» Polish football game featured on Irish TV

I was quite surprised today when I saw that the Irish sports TV channel, Setanta Sports was showing a live broadcast of the Euro 2008 qualification game between Poland and Kazakhstan.

Surely this is quite an important game for Poles, but seeing it abroad was quite unusual. In addition to that, they didn't show the game of their own Irish team vs. Cyprus, which took place at the same time. The explanation is simple – at least 100 000 people migrated from Poland to Ireland since we entered the European Union and it is a very substantial number for such a small country. Apparently people at Setanta are good observers and they felt this will bring them more viewers. The Irish are more into their own sports – Gaelic Games, like hurling and Gaelic football. Conveniently, these sports are almost unknown outside Ireland, so they can comfortably say they are the best in the world.
