September 19, 2006


Everything for the fansPeople here are crazy about football. I thought the Netherlands was a football-mad country but here it´s even worse (or better, decide for yourself).

The people from Barcelona say that FC Barcelona is “más que un equipo de futból”, which says it all, “more than a football team”. It is a symbol of fierce Catalunya-ness, as opposed to Real Madrid, which represents its opposite: Spanishness, the thing that Catalonia isn´t.

So whenever FC Barca plays (which is twice a week!), the Catalan flag, the Bandanera, if I´m not mistaken, goes out and nearly the whole city and lots of people on campus watch.

A joke I heard the other day, for those who speak a bit of Spanish. How do Argentines call Maradona?
