It was the first time that Spain won the Euro Cup 2008 in 22 years. (And the first time in about the same number of years that I watched a soccer match.)
The game was in Austria, so the viewing location was a bar in the Barri Gotti.
The celebration in the street afterwards was particularly memorable… and also where I learned the life skill of operating an SLR with one hand, while have a beer in the other.
folks were lined up on the street to see in…
…and the celebration starts
friendly folks sold beer on the streets for 1 euro
the spanish flag in motion: my first attempt at panning
pouring on to las ramblas
there was no “music”, so noise makers and chants filled the streets
and there were many many people out
I’m not sure what provoked Google Reader to show this entry in my list again, but something did catch my eye.
Euro 2008 was not in Italy, but in Austria and Switzerland. The final was in Vienna, Austria.
Enjoying all the pictures from your trip. It’s certainly a great break from hundreds of daily developer posts.
Thanks for the correction! Also, I’m backposting a lot of the photos – so expect a lot more out of order posts. 🙂
