Real Madrid and Athletico

Madrid is home to two “football” – or as we would say, “soccer” – teams.  Real Madrid and Athletico.

Our good friend, Cesar, grew up in Madrid and has been an Athletico fan since he was a little boy.  Kyle initially followed his lead when we moved to Madrid and vowed his loyalty to Athletico as well, but soon came to a crossroads as he cheered on Real Madrid too – something Cesar certainly did not approve of.

Kyle made it to a few games – 3 Real Madrid and 1 Athletico – but I only made it to one in honor of our friend, Kevin Chu’s, birthday.

Rachel and Kevin enjoyed the view in Bernabeu Stadium.

Real Madrid pulled through with a win and we celebrated at Tony Roma’s (one of Kevin’s favorites :-)) afterwards.  Happy birthday Kevin!
