Remember how I asked where the Barcelona fans were the other day? Well they were at the Stadium and in my neighborhood.
The energy here was incredible. Was it just me or did it seem like most of the Italian fans were also rooting for Barcelona? If so, why?
Here is a great article and fantastic photo in the New York Times.
I noticed that most of the Barcelona fans were comprised of families. I saw many children sightseeing with their parents while wearing flags/team shirts.
I'm glad my "boyfriend" Mr. Henry was so happy. I forgot he was traded to Barcelona.
Manchester United fans have to be disappointed. All week I was reading/hearing how Manchester was going to kick Barcelona's butt. This surprised win caps a great year for Barcelona who also won the Spanish League.
The headline following headline from Reuter's made me chuckle:

Photo inside my local supermercato. The city banned selling of alcohol for 24 hours. Other then a few arrests, things went well.
