I am the champions
I am the champions!
For only the second time in their 107 year history, Atletico Madrid are European champions. With a 2-1 win over Fulham in extra time, Atletico won the Inaugural Europa League title (formerly the UEFA Cup). Madrid went crazy. Don, Pete, Dave and I went up on the roof and watched the celebration, complete with fireworks, car horns and much yelling.
So, i got to see history. After 3 1/2 years; watching them qualify for the Champions League against Schalke of Germany in 2008, and going to about 50 matches, finally, a title.
And they have a shot at another trophy next Wed. They play Sevilla in the Copa Del Rey Final.
i hope i am in such form when i am 107!
