Viva la Roja!

Campeones!

We camped out at home today to recharge, and also to watch the Euro2012 championship.  Spain vs. Italy.  Marty came over to help us cheer on Spain.  España did not disappoint, winning 4 – 0 over a strong Italian team.

They have now won 3 World / European championships in a row.  It’s building up to be an exciting 2014 world cup in Brazil.

Viva la roja!!!

The World Cup is underway in South Africa for the last several weeks.   Spain made it to the semi-finals and played Germany today and WON!!!!   1-0    Great game!

I can only imagine the celebrations going on in Madrid today.   This is a live shot of Madrid from right after the final whistle blew and Spain advanced to the Final game for the first time in World Cup history.

During the years I lived in Madrid in high school Spain hosted the World Cup – El Mundial 1982.   That was an exciting summer, and a thrill even though Spain didn’t make it past the second round that year.

I’m looking forward to watching the Final on Sunday.

Viva la roja!!!!!!   Viva España!!!  Vamos a ser campeones del mundo!!!
