¡España campeones de Europa! [ Sunday, 29 Jun 08 | 22:42 ]

[My Mood |hyperhyper]

Spain just won the European soccer championship over Germany 1-0. The sky erupted with fireworks from here to Barcelona. The President and King were at the stadium in Vienna as was Merkle. They all hugged and kissed at the end. This is the first Spanish victory in 24 44 years.

When they were giving out medals at the ceremonies after the game, I noticed that the captain of the Spanish team kissed Zapatero, but only shook Merkle's hand.

Chuck, watching it all on Cuatro

My Spanish sister-in-law called last night "to see how the condo search is going". Uh-huh. We all know it was only to gloat. Of course, as we were speaking, the Sox completed their sweep of the Cubs, so it wasn't all bad.
