¡Euro 2012 Champs!

Yesterday, España won the UEFA Euro 2012 tournament! They dominated the Italian team with a score of 4-0 and became the first team to successfully defend the European Championship. Which you already know, unless you live under a rock or in the United States. This is huge for Spain and a big deal in the rest of Europe, but like most soccer football news in the States, the story is buried somewhere in the sports section.

After Spain defeated France.

Graham only saw the second half of the game, because he is traveling and was on a train to Sevilla. Meghann is at home in States and was at a family barbecue, but we were both cheering for our home team (Meghann even has the official Euro 2012 app on her phone). Unfortunately, we missed out on celebrating in the streets after the final game, but it was still exciting to follow Spain throughout the tournament and we did go out to watch a few of the earlier games. 

Graham's family was visiting during part of the tournament. Here we are with James, Graham's brother, watching the Spain vs. Croatia game.

Following football and cheering for Spain has been another unique part of our overseas experience. Even though we're not locals, it's been fun to gear up, go out, and get into the excitement of the games. ¡Viva España!
