Viva España!

Hats off to Spain, for winning their first international soccer tournament in 44 years, after beating the Germans 1-0 in the Euro 2008 finals.  

The Spanish scored their goal in the 33rd minute when Fernando Torres chipped the ball over German goalkeeper Jens Lehman, and the Spanish held on for the rest of the game for the 1-0 victory. It's their first Euro cup title in the post-Franco era.

Now there's no more soccer (besides MLS) until the European leagues start up again in mid-August. Hopefully the A's will stay in contention, or else this will be a long Summer, sports-wise, for me.
