Eusebio da Silva Ferreira, The Black Panther

Long before Cristiano Ronaldo, there was this dude named Eusebio. They called him ‘The Black Panther’… because, you know, Eusebio was born in Africa. (Jury’s out on whether or not that nickname was racist, but I’d guess it’s one of these Washington Redskins-type things that was appropriate at the time because the minorities affected didn’t have […]

The Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

Apparently, Barcelona isn’t really in Spain. Something called Catalonia. Apparently, Antoni Gaudi was some super-famous builder of homes and all buildings similar. For the Sagrada Familia, he was supposed to build a home for God. Fittingly, it remains unfinished. What is the Sagrada Familia? from Wikipedia: The Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família (Catalan pronunciation: [səˈɣɾaðə […]
