Preview: RC Celta vs. Villarreal B

Last Sunday 1st April, Allen Dodson wrote a very interesting preview on for the match RC Celta - Villarreal B. This is what he wrote:

"Come with me to the sea at Vigo". So wrote the Galician Martin Codax in the 1200s, and tomorrow Villarreal's B team will take that advice. Or at least come within a mile or so of the sea, because that's how close the Balaídos stadium is to Vigo Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

April Fools' Day 2012

April Fools' Day or All Fools' Day is a day celebrated in many countries on April 1st. The day is named for the custom of playing practical jokes and hoaxes of varying sophistication on friends, family members, enemies, and neighbours, or sending them on a fool's errand, the aim of which is to embarrass the gullible. Traditionally, in some countries, such as the UK, Australia and South Africa the jokes only last until noon, and someone who plays a trick after noon is called an "April Fool". Elsewhere, such as in Canada, France, Ireland, Italy, Russia, The Netherlands, and the U.S., the jokes last all day.
