    Hey

    After being recommended this site, I have decided to check it out.

    I hope to have spirited and mostly civilized debate with people of opposing views on subjects that interest me and many others....... I know.. I am most likely very optimistic, but that is how I was raised so deal with it!

    Politically, I am a European centrist with right wing leanings, a pragmatist, hater of hypocrites on both sides of the political scale and am a massive football fan.. you know the real kind of football. Born in Denmark, raised in the middle east and around the world and now living in Spain...

    Now I must be off to drink some sangria and eat some chorizo and calamares at the beach... life on the Costa del Sol is very hard as you can see... :lol:

    I've been to Malaga and Costa del Sol. Went there when I was in the Navy. I can attest that you have very good sangria. Welcome and have a great day at the beach. Say hello to all the topless ladies for me. Wish I was there with you.

    :welcome:

    We have European football here but we call it soccer.

    It is very popular in our elementary schools and is a great sport for children.

    Once they grow up and become teenagers.

    They then graduate to a "real" man's competitive sport like American football. :cool:

    The only place in Spain I was at (a couple of times) was Rota. And we didn't have liberty. Both times - de-snail ops following Med cruises.
