Honduras makes history

I've never been a sports fan, but I am so happy that Honduras made it to the World Cup for the first time in 28 years. How could anyone not be! Honduras needed a boost.

I made a solemn promise to a Honduran reader not to write about games (it a superstitious thing and El Jefe agrees, too!) − but I just wanted to point you to this article about the Palacio brothers, who are from La Ceiba.

Can you imagine the pride of parents don Eulogio y doña Orfilia Palacios to have THREE sons playing in the World Cup? It is the first time that three brothers have played for one country in the history of the World Cup.
