Campeones campeones oe oe oe

Sunday night Real Madrid played for the Spanish Premier League Championship. We watched the game at a bar in Mallorca surrounded by teenagers. Turns out this weekend was also a big one for the "viaje del fin de curso," or the senior trip (taken around both age 16 and age 18). Part of the time we were annoyed by all the kiddies. But they were quite fun to watch the game with. Madrid won after an exciting 8 minutes or so in the 2nd half when they went from losing by one to winning by two. This is the celebration. It might not compare to the 1/2 million people who celebrated at the Cibeles fountain in Madrid but at least no one got hurt or arrested. At least not that we know of.

On an interesting side note - being clearly the only "adults" in the bar we got preferential treatment from the waiter. He was quick to bring us drinks and we are the only ones he brought snacks too (the ever-present plate of olives). And, we found out later, we were the only ones he kept a running tab for. The kiddies paid as they went. A smart move. About 3 minutes after this video was taken the bar was empty - expect for us. It was nice and quiet for our after-game dinner.

Nacho looks like he wants to go run and play with the little testosterone-filled laddies.

Are you practicing your scottish accent already?

I can't wait until I can talk like them ;) I need to watch Trainspotting a few more times.

to Mark... if you read Trainspotting instead of watching it you will pick up the accent a lot faster...

to Amy... skip Mallorca next time you head to the islands and go to Ibiza instead- still touristy but in a different way- at least that's how I remember it! I would like to hear your opinion of it!
