The Euro has taken over my household and all of my free time! Hence, a very late continuation of my Copa del Rey story. I’m just hoping at this point that I can remember some of the details…
G and I had wanted to go to Spain for years. YEARS. But we never actually thought it’d happen. We’re not world travelers… either of us. I had been to Europe in college (Italy) but other than that, neither of us had been further than Cancun, Mexico. Well, thanks to some decent tax returns and G’s entrepreneurial success this past year, we were able to save up the money to fund the trip of a lifetime. Or at least a decade. And there’s no doubt… our (my?) football obsession may have played a significant part in getting us to finally take the plunge and buy the tickets.
New category: Appreciation Post
There are so many things I can appreciate about the beautiful game. It’s not always the goals… It can be the build-up to the goal, the scything pass, the fancy footwork, the slide tackle, the unbelievable save… I could go on and on. I’d like to use this category to highlight some of the beautiful football that takes my breath away. Of course, this is often contingent on finding the videos and gifs that show them. At least, until I learn how to make them myself. Luckily, this week’s appreciation post is already publicly available! And I don’t know why my posts have been so Dortmund and Lewy heavy lately. I apologize if you care little about either. But it is what it is I guess… A new “appreciation”. 🙂
