One-liner guide to La Liga- Jornada 23

Your one-stop shop for some Spanish tidbit and then a one-line guide to these weekends games. Could be a question, could be a statement, could be a blatant run-on sentence so I can write whatever I want, who knows.

You Spanish tidbit for the day:

About half of my ITunes playlist is Spanish music, and now my new favorite group is ‘La Pegatina’. The group from Catalunya speaks to be since they sing songs in Castellano (Spanish) Catalan and Gallego (essentially a dialect of Portuguese, but spoken in Gallecia)

Here is there best song, in my opinion ‘Penjat’

For my next birthday I want to buy a box and learn how to play it, seriously.

Now, your one-liner guide to La Liga.

This week’s Menudo Partidazo

Sevilla v Barcelona (Saturday 10:00)

Sevilla’s Manolo Jimenez calls this game their final, but how much of a fight will a Bojan, Deco and Zambrotta-less Barcelona put up.

Saturday

Deportivo v Getafe

Deportivo praying to the fútbol Gods for a win to keep them clear of the relegation zone.

Murcia – Villarreal

One more loss could spell disaster for Murcia gaffer Lucas Alcaraz.

Sunday

Espanyol v Recreativo

The pericos are my surprise team of the year, sitting pretty on third place, eight points behind Barcelona; Recreativo suck.

Mallorca v Almería

Viva Almería! The little team that could, tied with Sevilla on 32 points go to the isle looking for their ticket into the UEFA cup 6th place spot.

Racing v Atlético

Danny Szetela is gone(sniff). Now La Liga is Americanless yet again. (but I had this inkling that there is another Yank somewhere in the ranks, but I’m not sure).

Athletic v Levante

Levante is in the red, terribly, as the players gave the club n ultimatium today to recoup their losses while sitting pretty in 20th place. Not a good day.

Osasuna v Zaragoza

Ziganda, Osasuna gaffer, hopefully won’t be choking any more assistants after serving his one-game suspension for the on the field incidents in the Sanchez Pizjuan.

Real Madrid v Valladolid

Madrid has a habit of dropping points to newly promoted sides this season; Valladoild is hoping the trend continues.

Valencia v Betis

Struggle v Stuggle characterizes these two teams as this season has not been rainbows or butterflies for either side.

This weekend’s GolTV Schedule:

Saturday

2:00 Murcia – Villareal

4:00 Sevilla v Barcelona

Sunday

1:00 Real Madrid v Valladolid

3:00 Valencia v Betis
