This is JOY in its purest form. There are 40 million people celebrating on the streets with Spanish flags and honking horns. In case you haven't heard, Spain has made it to the finals in the World Cup for the first time. People of all ages poured out in the streets to peacefully and joyfully celebrate the victory on a hot Spanish night.
This has been special for me as I grew up playing and loving soccer in the States. Now after living in Spain for 24 years, I am going back to the States in 3 weeks. What a present to be able to say good bye to Spain in this way.
Mandella knew how sports unite people as portrayed in the movie Invictus and i have witnessed that tonight.
Just wanted to share my joy with you.
