The Reign in Spain

Well after 30 days & 63 matches, the World Cup is finally over.  Spain is the World Champion for the first time in their country’s history.  Going into the tournament as the favorite, they were upset early on in the group stage by Switzerland so many wondered if this team could live up to their reputation.  They certainly proved that they could.  The game had no score going into extra time & it looked like it might come down to penalty kicks but in the 116th minute, Andres Iniesta put the ball in the back of the net against the Dutch goalkeeper.  I’m personally a little jealous that I do not live in Spain tonight because I can only imagine the celebration.  Imagine New Years Eve multiplied by your team winning the SuperBowl multiplied by an entire country adding to the fact that Europeans are far more passionate then Americans & I’m no math whiz, but I think that equals the happiest place on earth.  Felicitaciones (or however congratulations is spelled in Spanish!)
