I hope you’re not tired of winning yet, because we have just added another trophy to our collection! In this post: La Rojita’s grand achievement, plus the latest on the Olympic team and all the leftovers from La Roja following the conclusion of its Eurocopa.
Continuing with the celebration in Madrid…
The goddess was wearing her best Spain finery for this occasion. I wonder if Xabi was already too drunk at this point to remember how drunk he had been the last time he was here, and how amusing that was for all of us?
Here is how the rest of the day of celebration in Madrid went: the plane ride from Kiev to Madrid, meeting with the king (no one told the elephant joke) and the slow descent into mass drunkenness, starting on the open air bus.
I’m skipping a bit ahead, since I haven’t posted about the parade in Madrid or the party at Cibeles yet, but The Pepe Show is always the highlight of the celebration, no? Spain has to keep winning, so we can get to experience the sheer genius of Pepe Reina every couple of years.
I love what the players were doing here to usher Pepe to the center of the stage!
Even though this was our third trophy in four years, I’ll never get tired of the sight of Iker Casillas lifting a beautiful cup up.
July 1, 2012.
Another historical date for La Roja. Spain made history by becoming the first national team to win two consecutive Eurocopas, with a World Cup sandwiched in between, when it beat Italy 4-0 (in the highest scoring final in history) to close out the 2012 edition of the Eurocopa.
Remember the promises that our boys made, in the event that Spain would win the World Cup? Well, I thought it would be fun to take a look back, and see who have been promise keepers and who have been promise breakers.
The real promise keepers.
Sergio Ramos – he promised to get a tattoo of the World Cup, and I predicted he would go through it. And he has! His tattoo artist Leo Millares posted these photos earlier this week.
Three years ago, the senior team conquered Europe. And this summer, the U-21 and U-19 teams have done so as well! Meanwhile, the U-20 team is very well-positioned in the World Cup, having won all three of their games so far. It’s a good time to be a fan of Spanish football! Anyway, here’s all the news from the senior team, the U-20 and U-19 teams over the past few weeks. I figured if I waited much longer, I’d be overwhelmed by the time I came back from vacation.
