    Thanks, Went! You're the best. <3

    Hopefully Argentina and its mosquito issues get better for you.

    Well, whoever wrote that pronunciation suffered from "seseo", which is pronouncing c and z as a s. It is NOT the correct pronunciation, although is absolutely commonplace in South American and South Spanish dialects.

    Z has a proper sound that is quite different from s so it should be "bahn-zo". But with an even softer z sound that the usual in English, which is closer to s than to Spanish z. It's hard to explain, but certainly those saying "Bone-so" are suffering from seseo. Specially if the guy is supposed to be from Madrid. We are unable to pronounce d's at the end of a word (such as in: Madrid), but we certainly can pronounce a z properly. Did Not Do The Research.

    Question for you. There's a character in a book I read who's from Madrid and his name is Bonzo. The book gives the pronunciation of his name as "Bone-So", not "Bahn-zo." And now there's a small argument in the fandom for this book because most people pronounce the name as "Bahn-zo" and not "Bone-so" and I'm just like let me ask Went because he will lead me to a better answer.

    Just saying that the Dream Land series are fun if you love cutesy animals doing hilarious things. Down side, beating the game proper is like agsgdhds.

    It sounds dirty but she likes sleeping in between my legs.

    On that note!

    She was only concerned about her mother and is currently getting pets, scritches, and is demanding that I go to bed so she can too.

    I'm not a terrible person, Went!

    Stop. You're making me want to get the game now. Which I haven't done because I'm poor and haven't finished Partners In Time/Superstar Saga. :(

    Managed to identify the song that was previously playing in my profile and put the "awake" version, I think it's even better. Just saying!

    From what you say, sounds like a forward left winger. A defender or a midfielder would rarely talk about scoring a hat-trick, corner/free kick headers are usually scored by either forwards or defenders, and the fact that he's placed on the top left zone during kick off pretty much gives it away.

    He just seems to play in a defensive-oriented team, that's all.

    And this is why, after I looked up the basic information, I decided to ask you. This is really helpful and fascinating!

    After watching the two times where he's shown to play, I can try to answer your questions the best I can.

    That time he apparently handballed- was he trying to catch the ball to attack or to clear it away? Did he receive a card for it? Which colour?
    The game he handballed wasn't any official game. It was just one he was playing for fun with a group of friends. When he tried to catch the ball, he was on the edge of the field in the middle, nearly out-of-bounds. The ball sails overhead, and he has to dive to attempt to catch it.

    What does he do primarily? Attacking or defending?
    Seems to be mostly defending. But in the only official game he's shown to play, a player on his team kicks the ball at him and he gets a goal by striking with his head just before halftime. A friend says that he can't relax and stop defending, and he responds saying that he'll just perform a hat trick. The conversation goes:
    "You're up a point, but you can't just protect your lead. They'll see that and attack."
    "No problem! I'll score a hat trick!"
    Now this might also help. When the second half is about to begin, he's standing to the left of the player in the center of the field. Does this lead me to the answer?

All times are UTC -8. The time now is 09:23 PM.
