Ok this is not your typical topic. Here in canada the biggest beer company (molson) is running these "I AM CANADIAN" ads on TV. The basis of the ad is some guy on a stage proclaiming on how he is Canadian. I took down his speech and changed it to a "I AM PORTUGUESE SPEECH" I hope you like it. If you want to see the I am Canadian ad go to this site: http://www.iam.ca/touts/iam.ghtml and click on the "VIEW THE RANT" anyways here is my I AM PORTUGUESE speech.

Caro...
I'm not a construction worker, a fisherman or a dropout.

I don't live in with my parents until I am 40,
I don't eat fish every night.
And I don't drive a Ford.

And I don't know Rui,Paulo or Luis from NewArk,
Although I'm certain they're very very hairy people.

I drink port...not beer.
I don't use utensils when I eat sardines.
I believe in open bars at weddings, not cash.

And I pronounce it Porto, not oPorto.

I will proudly wave my country's flag out of my car if we ever make it to
the world cup.

Gelado IS ice cream,
Peixe ARE fish
and Saramago IS the greatest of all writers,

And it IS pronounced Futebol, not soccer, FUTEBOL!!!!!!!!!

Portugal is the home of EURO 2004,
The FIRST nation of futebol,
And the BEST part of Europe!!

My name is Marco!!!
AND I AM PORTGUESE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Adeus

Well done.
I tell you what really pisses me off is when people say Oporto and not Porto and when people say Sporting Lisbon I mean where the **** is there a Lisbon in Sporting's name.

I wrote this one on my own. It was my buddy who sent me the Italian one so that basically inspired me to write this one.

A SIDENOTE to Marco:

The NJ DEVILS are moving to Newark in a couple of years...perhaps then you can come and watch the Red Wings play the Devils and then say hello to Rui, Paulo and Luis. BTW I know those guys and they aren't that hairy!!! :)

I *may* be going down to Newark this summer, but not to visit Rui, Paulo, or Luis...but rather Nela, Maria, Sophia.
