I’m honestly not a huge soccer/ fútbol fan, but even I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go to an FC Barcelona match to see some of the greats, and I’m so glad I did. Luckily, we stopped by a souvenir shop earlier that day to pick up some Barcelona gear, so we fit right into the sea of blue, red, and gold.
The enthusiasm and energy in the stadium was uncanny. At one point in the game, I turned to my right and saw that suddenly somebody had started the wave. And around and around it went until finally four or five laps later, it waned and everybody sat down to continue chanting “¡Barca, Barca, Barca!” In a 6-0 win, Barcelona fans cheered their way out of the stadium and onto the streets to celebrate a great game.
