Spain wins Euro 2012

In case anyone didn't know, tonight Spain won Euro 2012, beating Italy 4-0.

All of the newscasters and fans keep saying "histórico, histórico!" -- that this is a moment that will go down in history.  Here's why:

Firstly, it's the first time anyone has scored four points in the Eurocopa.  More importantly, this is the first time that any team has won three consecutive major tournaments; Spain won Euro 2008, World Cup 2010, and Euro 2012.

It's currently 1.35am and cars are still honking as they pass (and keep in mind I live out, out of the center).  It's a crazy party downtown right now, which will no doubt continue until morning.
