Monkey Bridge January 14, 2014

According to Jose Miguel Wisnik, ' ' adopting the xingamento, they proud revert the supposedly negative character of the expression, printing to it a connotation provocativa' '. It was what it made twisted of the Athletical Association Black Bridge. According to Aristides Almeida Rock, in its excellent book on the animal symbology in the sport, it has three theories that they explain why the Black Bridge is the Monkey. The theory of the torcedor Jose Mayan Renato Kings is of that, when the pontepretanos torcedores arrived in a city, they always walked in groups, what the inhabitants said that ' ' the flock of macacos&#039 arrived; '. The theory of engineer Ariovaldo Casimiro Nesso that, according to Aristides, would have greater credit is of that, in the year of the foundation of the club, the pontepretanos played ball next to a bridge (Black) where, unexpectedly, it appeared a monkey. (The true one will be this, then it must be concluded that the Monkey is probably first mascote of the Brazilian soccer, as already we said in the chapter ' ' First mascote' ' , in our book Of the deep one of the trunk.) Finally, it has the theory ' ' tradicional' ' , of that it was a xingamento of the twisted bugrina.

There the pontepretanos had transformed the lemon into lemonade and the monkey is mascote official of Bridge. Well, it was not difficult to the pontepretanos to find qualities in ' ' xingamento' '. As it would say the great Cascudo Chamber, the monkey ' ' it is the figure of the agility, astuteness without escrpulos, infallibly victorious for the rapidity in the unexpected solutions and felizes' '. In posterior edition of its famous Dictionary of the Brazilian folklore, it says more: that ' ' in the classic fabulrio the monkey appears as symbol of cynical ability, shrewdness and ligeireza.
