Lord Taquara

They could have called this election Flumengo or Flaminense, as those old fictitious teamses of revistinhas of the Carioca Z. Instead of this, they had called Fla-Flu, having tried to ridicularizar. Only that the Fla-Flu agreement won the natives of So Paulo and conquered the heading of that year. It was really the best possible election. The Fla-Flu, pejorativo term, turned respect expression. Later, in 1933 (cf. Fatima Antunes) or 1936 (cf.

Ruy Castro), Mrio Son used to advantage the Fla-Flu name to call the classic between the two great teamses who its Nelson brother Rodrigues called ‘ ‘ the Karamazov brothers of the soccer brasileiro’ ‘. That is, he inverted the direction: what before it meant cooperation started to symbolize the rivalry. With this, Mrio Son gave to the initial kick for the construction of all the mstica that involves this classic. Only that the history of the Fla-Flu name does not finish there. During the Carioca carnivals of old, the folies more you celebrate had curious nicknames, as the following ones, cited for Edmundo Luis: Lord Mother-in-law, Lord Fera, Lord Alisa, Lord Craknel, Cacareco, Cardoso Xuxu, Circa-Chicken, Rat-Dry and Peru of the Cold Feet (coautor of the samba ‘ ‘ For telefone’ ‘ , with the tricolor Donga).

He occurs that it also moved of carnavalesca society and of nickname: he passed to be called Lord Fla-Flu, or simply ‘ ‘ the Fla-Flu’ ‘. Why? Because, for incredible that it seems, was partner of both the clubs. (Obs.: to be partner of both age until common, but before the Flamengo having its department of soccer, since they did not dispute the esportivas modalities.
