Since I have been spending too much time watching football (or soccer to us Americans) and playing with video capture software, I haven’t written a post for today. I have always had a passing interest in football and would half pay attention to the World Cup but for some reason I have become a big fan since watching Euro 2008. And it’s so exciting – I decided to root for Spain at the beginning of the tournament basically because I’ve been to the country and I know a little bit of Spanish – and Spain ended up winning!!! I now plan on following Real Madrid (I think I now have a huge crush on Iker Casillas) and perhaps Arsenal in the Premiere League. And, of course, I will be getting ready for World Cup 2010.
I have been testing two social community sites for football fans; OleOle and Footbo. I haven’t spent enough time with them yet to do a review but I plan to soon.
So, since I am a recent football fan I will post some videos instead.
This one is of the champions ceremony after the match. Every time I watch it I am incredibly moved when Iker Casillas, the goalkeeper and team captain, lifts up the trophy.
The second one is a compilation of Iker Casillas’ best saves for Real Madrid.
