Halaaaaa Españaaaaa!

Here's a picture of some of the crowd outside of Bernabeu (Real Madrid's stadium) where I went to watch the game tonight.  There are big screens of the game all around the outside of the stadium, and it was just jam-packed with fans.  I'll put up pics I took tomorrow... the one up above I snatched from a news site.

The people just went wild though.  After the game, everyone from Bernabeu left via this main street in the city, Castellana.  A couple cars were trying to get through... and some of the fans would just jump on the cars in front, run across the top of the vehicle and jump off in back.  They'd go 3-4 people at a time.  And of course, the people pounded on the busses that tried to make their way through the crowd.  Singing and pounding in the metro trains...  Endless honking and chants ALL over the city.  When I finally made it back to my apartment, which is now waaay on the east end of the city, all the cars out driving were honking as they went (still).

Viva España!

  1. I LOVE going to other county's soccer games! I used to live in Chile and I went to the qualifier game for the world cup. It was such a fun experience and it converted me into a huge futbol fan.
