Funny thing about faith movements, they are fickle and subject to influence by great irony. Is it possible this happened to Iran last Sunday?

Did anyone else notice the great satin defeated Iran the other day?

While most people in the states are sleeping on the World Cup, the rest of the world is tuned in. On Sunday, Mexico and Iran played a World Cup match that almost resulted in a 1-1 draw. However, the final score ended 3-1. The second goal came at the last minutes of the game when Omar Bravo of Mexico scored.

The irony that Omar Bravo would defeat Iran is too much not to point out, but perhaps lost on the Western world. You see, "Omar" is the most cursed name in Iran, and in Persian has been translated to mean "the name of evil." "Bravo" also translates to Persian, as a adjective for celebration or praise.

It is a noteworthy irony when fate would result in Omar Bravo, a name that translates to the 'celebration of the great satin', defeating Iran in the World Cup. Is this fates way of predicting the future, or making of joke of political events worldwide?

You decide.

Indeed, I recognize the irony of the situration. In fact, you described it beautifully with your term symetry in irony or, to rephrase it, ironic symetry. It's one of those things that just "are" but, nevertheless, have importance or significance even though there is no justification. It's like having irony on the quantum level.
