"El Presidente El Perfecto!" was the announcer's unforgettable call at the end of that game.

True enough. I heard plenty of Spanish when I was dating that Spanish girl; I have heard very little since.

Interestingly, the receptionist at one place I worked at was from Chile. Spanish was her first language, of course, but it was South American Spanish. What little Spanish I learned from that from-Spain girl I dated (and her relatives) was the Spanish of Spain, so the receptionist and I used to joke about whether it was "gracias" or "grathias." We had fun disagreeing.

I love that series. Really interesting stories. Its funny, but for such a small island you really can run into a Jamaican anywhere in the world. Jamaicans in general are very open minded when it comes to pursuing opportunities abroad.
