ukyo, bullfights, and the friday press conference
Posted 12 October 2001 - 14:29
now i think it was hemmingway that said that there are only 3 real sports, those being automobile racing, mountain climbing, and bull fighting, so the first idea that came to mind was whether or not we might now see ukyo in spain trying to become a matador anytime soon... as if that weren't bad enough, somehow the image of H2F in a matador's costume, sword hidden carefully behind his back, arm with the red flag , and eddie jordan, complete with horns, ready to charge!
of course , the bullfight scenarios with f1 people are endless... ron dennis could fit a variety of roles there, and i suppose Jos would simply punch out the bull like "mongol" did the horse in blazing saddles.
oh well. seriously, congrats to UK on a big accomplishment, and equal congrats to H2F on a well placed jab to eddie.

The Villeneuve bros started motor racing with ski-doo.
Lella Lombardi played handball at a high level.
Cliff Allison was a professional jcokey. His many wins brought him enough money to buy his first race car.
IIRC Fon de Portago finished 4th at some Olympics (Cortina '56 ??) and was the leader of the Spanish Olympic Team that year, carrying the national flag in the opening & closing ceremonies. He was very good at many proletarian sports like polo, fencing...
Alain Prost loves cycling and before he bought Ligier he was often seen in amateur races.
Didn't Prince Bira competed in some Olympics in the 60s (yachting ?) ?

de Portago also swam, Guy Ligier played Rugby, Ken Tyrrell had a trial as a footballer (and Jackie Oliver?? Not to sure re. that one) & Moises Solana was a brilliant expert at Jai-Alai which is how he got the money to go racing

Of course Luis Moya is pretty good in karate, as we saw in those infamous meters of one Rally of Great Britain...
