Enquanto associado (pouco activo, confesso ) sinto o dever de dar aqui a devida divulgação a tão merecida honra.
I CELEBRATE myself;
And what I assume you shall assume;
For every atom belonging to me, as good belongs to you.
I loafe and invite my Soul;
I lean and loafe at my ease, observing a spear of summer grass.
Houses and rooms are full of perfumes—the shelves are crowded with perfumes;
I breathe the fragrance myself, and know it and like it;
The distillation would intoxicate me also, but I shall not let it.
The atmosphere is not a perfume—it has no taste of the distillation—it is odorless;
It is for my mouth forever—I am in love with it;
I will go to the bank by the wood, and become undisguised and naked;
I am mad for it to be in contact with me.
Twenty-eight young men bathe by the shore;
Twenty-eight young men, and all so friendly:
Twenty-eight years of womanly life, and all so lonesome.
She owns the fine house by the rise of the bank;
She hides, handsome and richly drest, aft the blinds of the window.
Which of the young men does she like the best?
Ah, the homeliest of them is beautiful to her.
Where are you off to, lady? for I see you;
You splash in the water there, yet stay stock still in your room.
Dancing and laughing along the beach came the twenty-ninth bather;
The rest did not see her, but she saw them and loved them.
The beards of the young men glisten’d with wet, it ran from their long hair:
Little streams pass’d all over their bodies.
An unseen hand also pass’d over their bodies;
It descended tremblingly from their temples and ribs.
The young men float on their backs—their white bellies bulge to the sun—they do not ask who seizes fast to them;
They do not know who puffs and declines with pendant and bending arch;
They do not think whom they souse with spray.
in Leaves of Grass - 1900.
Walt Whitman (b. May 31, 1819 ; d. March 26, 1892)
O jogo disputou-se em Berna, precisamente no dia 31 de Maio de 1961 e perante 28 mil espectadores e sob a arbitragem do suíço Gottfie Dienst, as equipas apresentaram:
Benfica: Costa Pereira; Mário João e Ângelo, Neto, Germano e Cruz: José Augusto, Santana, José Águas, Coluna e Cavém
Barcelona: Rammallets; Foncho e Garay; Vergés, Gensana e Garcia; Kubala, Suarez, Evaristo, Kocsis e Czibor
Golos: 0-1 Czibor de cabeça aos 20'; 1-1 José Águas aos 30' ; 2-1 aos 31' após lançamento longo de Neto com a bola disputada por Santana e Gensana a ir parar ao fundo da baliza; 3-1 aos 55' por Mário Coluna. Com 3-1 ficou célebre o remate de Kubala ao poste com a bola a percorrer toda a linha de fundo bater no outro poste e ir parar às mãos de Costa Pereira. Aos 75' na sequencia de um canto, Czibor bisava para os espanhóis. Depois foi o sufoco do Barcelona que não chegou para evitar o primeiro triunfo na Taça dos Campeões Europeus.
No ano seguinte o Benfica voltaria a vencer agora frente ao Real Madrid perante 65000 espectadores por 5-3 em Amesterdão, no dia 2 de Maio de 1962.
E em 1963, terceira final consecutiva para defrontar o Milan em Wembley. O Benfica perdeu por 2-1 (dois golos de Altafini) estando a ganhar ao intervalo por 1-0 com um golo de Eusébio. No Milan jogava Trapattoni que teve um duelo de fazer faísca com Coluna. Os encarnados queixaram-se da permissividade do árbitro Ken Aston, de nacionalidade holandesa. ...

Porém os argentinos, sem forçar muito, tiveram ainda três bolas nos ferros da baliza (dois à barra e um ao poste) e obrigaram João Ricardo a um punhado de boas defesas.
Na primeira parte Angola ainda conseguiu dois remates à baliza de Abbondanzieri (que surpreendentemente esteve longe de se mostrar um guarda-redes seguro) e alguma conservação de bola na zona de meio-campo, com Mendonça e Figueiredo activos, mas na segunda parte Angola no ataque foi completamente inofensivo.
Nesta segunda parte a Argentina preferiu maior contenção de bola e dominou o jogo mas a gula pelo ataque diminuiu até à entrada dos suplentes em que veio a capacidade tecnica de Messi totalmente recuperado de lesão.
As inúmeras substituições durante a 2ª. parte tornaram praticamente impossível delinear esquemas tacticos para as equipas, mas ficam como notas as inúmeras dificuldades dos angolanos em criarem jogadas de ataque, o grande números de estrelas argentinas do meio-campo ofensivo e ataque (Messi, Crespo, Saviola, Riquelme, Tevez ... e ainda ficou no banco sem entrar Júlio Cruz). Quem não chegou a jogar foi o portista Lucho.
Nota ainda para, com pouco trabalho, a insegurança de Abbondanzieri com dificuldades a jogar com os pés, e pouco concentrado (quase era surpreendido com um remate de fora da área de Mendonça) e cometeu uma falta por sair com a bola da área defensiva.
Angola: João Ricardo, Mendonça, Kali, Jamba, Macabreu; André, Figueiredo, Edson, Loko; Mateus e Akwa (Jogaram ainda: Mantorras, Zé Calanga, Miloy, Flávio, Titi Buengo e Luís Delgado)
Argentina: Abbondanzieri, Burdisso, Heintze, Ayala e Sorin, Mascherano e Cambiasso, Riqelme, Saviola, Maxi Rodriguez e Crespo (Jogaram ainda: Messi, Gabriel Milito, Scaloni, Pablo Aimar, Carlos Tevez e Cufré)
Golos: Maximiliano Rodrigues (28') e Sorin (36')
Cartões amarelos para Maxi Rodriguez por simular um penalty aos 58' e para Flávio aos 85' por acumulação de faltas.
Que quer o vento?
A cada instante
Passa na porta
Vento que assusta
Nas horas frias
Na noite feia,
Vindo de longe,
Das ermas praias.
Andam de ronda
Bocas dos mortos.
Também um dia,
Estando eu morto,
Na tua porta
Virei no vento
Mas não de inverno,
Nas horas frias
Das noites feias.
Virei no vento
Em tua boca
Cheiro de flores
Que estão lá fora
Na noite quente.
Virei no vento...
