ah go take ah shot and say...Hugo Sanchez?

Edit: Hugo Sanchez in his early days, trained to be a gymnast, laying the foundation for his acrobatic flips.  His sister was a gymnast in the '76 Olympics and I have read that he does the flips in honour of his sister.  Hugo himself played football for Mexico in the same '76 Olympics.  Hence a connection to Hasley.

Hugo was flipping on de field before it became a more or less common sight. These days he jes flipping mad he loss de wuk.  ;D

Like Hasely, the connection was not an also ran.

The connection was not an 'also ran' ... because the connection, his sister, 'jumped'. Hasely obviously won gold in Montreal, therefore medalled and was not an 'also ran'.

As a lil footnote ... something Hugo Sanchez shares with Pacho Maturana ... both are dentists.

asylum you should change your name to "The Riddler"

some clarification needed...we talking Germany only, or West Germany?

secondly, are you referring to shootouts as well as PKs during the game, or just shootouts?
