Junk Drawer-3/19/09-Spanish Father´s Day

Today is Father´s Day in Spain and yes, I´m hispanizing you, that´s why I bring this subject to the Junk Drawer.

 

First of all a story many of you probably know:

 
“A son asked his father, "Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?" The father, despite having a heart condition, said "Yes".

They went on to complete the marathon together. Father and son went on to join other marathons, the father always saying, "Yes" to his son's request of going through the race together.

One day, the son asked his father, 'Dad, let us join the Ironman together; to which his father said, "Yes", too.

For those who don't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race consists of three endurance events of a 2.4 miles (3.86 kilometers) ocean swim followed by a 112 miles (180.2 kilometers) bike ride and ending with a 26.2 miles (42.195 kilometers) marathon along the coast of the Big Island.


Father and son went on to complete the race together.” And now watch this video

 


What should it be the title for a song about a father and his son? Father and son

 

Do you know any Spanish poem from the 15th Century?  The Coplas on the Death of His Father, the Grand-Master of Santiago, by  Jorge Manrique.
