    I am not sure of the correct spelling of this word but I saw a boxing
    match the other night and I kept hearing one of the trainers saying
    ARIBA (A-REE-BA) over and over again.

    I am assuming that this is a SPANISH word but cannot seem to find it
    in my spanish dictionary. Does anyone here have an idea as to what
    this means?

    Thanks in advance

    It's Mexican all-right. Speedy Gonzalas (Cartoon) used to say it all
    the time... Ariba Ariba, Andrea, Andrea.... I think it means Fast
    Senior.... Not positive as I have french heritage ;-)

    The word is "arriba". It means "above" or "upstairs". Colloquially,
    it is used to mean, "Go, man, GO!"

    Or 'Associate of the Royal Institute of British Architects'. But that
    doesn't seem to have any connection with fist-fighting (at least not the
    sort with gloves that gets onto TV).

    I used to be the fastest runner at any school I was at -I was at a lot
    (my was in the Air Force) and was used to being called
    Speedy Gonzalas :)

    Until now I just thought - Arriba! Arriba! Andale! Andale! ment hurry,
    go faster :)

    Bt it doesn't, wish I had the internet when I was younger
    roughly, "Rise up, lets get going!"

    i think the word is arriva- to arrive.
    a-reba is what a certain country singer's might say when calling her.

    but I do not share the crusading spirit of the professional atheist
    whose fervor is mostly due to a painful act of liberation from the fetters
    of religious indoctrination received in youth. I prefer an attitude of
    corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature
    and of our own being. (Albert Einstein)

  14. Dang it! I knew my Latino ladies would say it repeatedly
    quite loudly and sometimes scream it during the heights
    of our romantic interludes, so I *naturally* thought it
    was "Oh God" in Spanish!

    I would think as I ramped up the intensity "That's right,
    you infidel heathen wench, I got your 'Arriba' right here...
    (but tomorrow, you're going back to the Home Depot I got
    you from.)" "Nanny for a day," d'uh, who'd be dumb enuf?

    Now... I don't know if I can *ever* recover the fantasy,
    without "Blinky" standing there dressed like a school
    professor with his handy-dandy Funk & Wagnells in hand.

    Oh well, I guess we could dress him like a Puerto Rican nun....

    Arriva derche, ya'll!

    Could it mean: "Put it in! Put it in!" ?

    Hmmm, according to that link, Speedy's saying "I'm happy! I'm Happy!"
    I guess he's running so fast because he just got laid and feels

    Ahh, ya see, there ya go, the Latino Ladies where saying "Go upstairs
    not downstairs...." They where telling you they'd rather give you a
    blow-job! Oh man, why wouldn't you just listen to them?
    Phat Sam, Apr 7, 2008
  19. No. I did not write that. And I knew that it was not arriva.
