Saturday Night Lights

It’s pissing down rain here, Seattle style, so I’m stuck at home tonight. I have my choice right now of watching The Englsih Patient in Spanish or the football game on La Sexta, the heavy weight TV station in Spain. The game is Barcelona against Sevilla in Barcelona. They are also celebrating the 50th anniversary of the stadium there, Camp Nou.

There is still more than the better part of an hour before the game starts so La Sexta is showing all of the festivities at the stadium in Barcelona. Everything at the stadium is being translated by the announcers for all of the slobs like me who don’t speak Catalan. It looks like a great time tonight in Barcelona. Their squad is so loaded with talent this year that it’s difficult to believe that they could lose a single game.

Their newest addition is French superstar, Thierry Henry, formerly with Arsenal. They like showing a clip of a game where Henry is literally getting his jersey ripped off his body by a defender and he uses the back of his foot to kick the ball between both his and the defender’s legs to score a goal. As if Barcelona even needed another star player. Every member of their team is a world class player: Ronaldinho, Messi, Deco, Marquesa, Abidal, Iniesta, among others. They don’t have a single player that any other team in the world wouldn't kill someone to sign.

Oops! I just turned the channel during a commercial break and The Simpsons is on the next station so it appears that I’ll miss the first part of the match. It looks like a good one. Gotta go.
