 Rosa Mota   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-31)
From the good ("Rosa Mota are terribly beautiful") to the bad ("they're Rosa Mota and they're abominable") to the downright ugly ("some bloke's vomiting all over the guitars and some woman's wailing like a scalded schizophrenic") no-one has ever had a passive word to say about them.

 Review: Rosa Mota, Wishful Sinking - John Walker
Julie Rumsey, Rosa Mota's guitarist, flutist (!), and co-lead vocalist (she of the ethereal harmonizing and--less often--Flying Lizards-ish deadpans) is rightfully pissed off.
Rosa Mota are the underbelly of the current Pop scene in Britain, bringing the dark intensity of alternative rock's pre bland-out 80s roots--The Birthday Party, Bauhaus, Echo & The Bunnymen--back to a scene currently wallowing in light.
Rumsey speaks of Sheppard and the GM in the most glowing of terms: "Ian met Robin at a session for another band, where he was overdubbing a clarinet part (eclectic bunch, these Rosas)." The leader of the still-learning-to-crawl Motas then invited Robin along to one of their gigs, not thinking that he'd actually show.

 Porto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pinto da Costa is not the only charismatic figure in the recent history of FC Porto: Jose Mourinho coached Porto to a victory in the 2003 UEFA Cup (beating Celtic in the final in Seville) and their magnificent 2004 Champions League triumph which was clinched with a victory over Monaco.
There are other sports arenas in Porto, notably the city-owned Pavilhão Rosa Mota (now unused due to a bad relationship between the mayor and the FC Porto board), swimming pools in the Constituição area, between the Marquês and Boavista, and other minor arenas, such as the Pavilhão do Académico.
Porto is also home to the North of Portugal's only cricket club, and possibly the oldest European cricket club outside of the British Isles, the Oporto Cricket and Lawn Tennis Club.
