Just off the top of my head, I know dudes with last names of Costa, Gomes, Lopes, etc that have zero idea that they're even Portuguese laugh.gif

Blame the parents and grandparents dude. But I get why they've been white-washed, most of Portuguese decedents in the Bay Area came a long time ago, like 100 years ago. Lots of the Portuguese decedents in the North-East came in during that time also but there was a huge influx of Portchops that came in during the 70's, 80's and 90's. Lot's from the North of Portugal. Those that came in 50-100 years ago were from the Azores and the South.

White-washing will happen, especially after 100 years. You'll get the what I like to call the "Mark Teixeira's, Dustin Pedroia's, Johnny Gomes'" of the American's who'll have no Portuguese identity but have Portuguese blood and last names. (Yea dude, those guys are Portuguese if you didn't know laugh.gif )

Lot's of good Portuguese bars out here but they've definitely aren't as much as there was when I was a child. 25-50 years from now, I'll expect the same type of white-washing. Most of those Portuguese bars will be bought by Brazilians or Central Americans (those seem to be the immigrants that are coming in a lot in this area now).

Yea I get you. It's bound to happen. I mean, I'm kinda Mexican/Filipino/Vietnamese washed myself because of the neighborhoods I grew up in, and on top of that I'm only half. I can speak Spanish much better than I can speak Portuguese laugh.gif But at least have some knowledge. For example my coworker's last name is Gomes, and when we were reviewing a client payroll file with the last name Fernandes, he just couldn't grasp why it wasn't spelled with a Z. When I explained it to him, he said "Oh I didn't know Portuguese people spelled Spanish names like that."laugh.gif Really ??? I didn't even bother reminding him that he has a Portuguese name himself; at that point you're just too far gone laugh.gif

Bruh if we don't get DDG ever because of Flo smfh. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he's a Man U lifer now after that debacle.

In other keeper related news Ter Stegen goofed again and gave up a goal in Barca's win. And Messi sent a PK into the stands. Bartra had a top class striker's finish chesting the ball down off what's become a signature messi left-foot curling lob pass.

Bro I know Nagatuak, that's the valley. I have a cousins who live out in that area (Monroe, Shelton, some other town) . Valley has a lot of Portchops who all came from Bridgeport. I know Bridgeport well too, my parents had lived there for many years before moving westward to Westchester. The club, the bars, I know, I know.

Messi biggest competition are PKs lol. 2 Goals with an assist still a great performance.

Can someone please repost the Ronaldo and Messi PK chart for Truth Serum? They've both taken pretty much the same amount of PKs, but one misses them more often than the other laugh.gif

Stating the obvious, but Ronaldo needs to be banned from free kicks while Messi needs to be banned from penalties.
post #6382 of 50776
Unfortunately neither will budge because they care about their goal tally too much.

But even more than Messi, Ronaldo seriously needs to stop. I get why the coaches won't stop him, they want him to be as happy as possible. But dude needs to stop being a **** and let experts like James, Bale, and Kroos take them.

I don't know when the chart was made exactly, but I know for sure that it was before Messi's miss yesterday and Ronaldo's 2 out of 2 in his 5 goal game.

 

And agree that Ronaldo needs to stop taking FKs, especially when it's just outside of the box and especially when James is playing with his recent FK form. Ronaldo is kind of like Roberto Carlos: When he scores a FK it looks really spectacular, but his percentage of FKs converted into goals is pretty low.

 

The main thing in Ronaldo stopping taking FKs and Messi stopping taking PKs (as it should be for both) is that this would have a much bigger impact on Messi's goal total than Ronaldo's. And Messi knows this, yet he still won't stop taking them. And all the while Ronaldo will be known as the greedy individualist "Penaldo" while Messi will be the humble quiet guy who seemingly doesn't care about individual feats.

Speaking of Ronaldo/Messi,they're moving up on the all time goal scoring list across Europes top leagues...they'll be 1-2 moist likely by the end of their careers sick.gifsick.gif

I don't know the accuracy of this list because I know that Totti scored his 300th for Roma yesterday.

post #6390 of 50776
That list counts league goals not their overall goal totals,I should've specified. I'm sure some of these guys have scored over 400 in all competition laugh.gif
