Eurocup (take two)

It doesn’t feel like it but it’s already been two years since my last post about the German World Cup. On that time, as usual, Spain didn’t do a very good job, but it was still a very joyous event in Germany, which was the main country organizing the event. People were just in the mood for party and you could simply feel it in the air… This time however, it caught me on the other side of the ocean so I couldn’t see it first hand. That doesn’t mean I cannot watch and admire from the distance though 😉

Here are some pictures from some of the most fervorous soccer supporters:

On another note, and actually talking about soccer this time the outcome was quite different and Spain did actually perform up to the challenge. Game after game they showed their best game which led them to the final against Germany and ultimately to being the European champions after more than 40 years. Celebrations went on in Spain for many days and the local media argued that the country was finally united. However, as the BBC says,

…one trophy does not a unified nation make, and Mr Zapatero was perhaps overstating the point.

I couldn’t agree more. By the way, I grabbed most pictures surfing around, so they belong to their respective owners.
