Yes slackers Luis and I have finally done a show. We recapped the World Cup… Talked a little about the transfer season as well as just about everything else… We have even gone one better and added a UStream video. For some reason it didn’t capture the cool intro so you will need to listen to the mp3 for that but we will get it figured out.

It’s quite a joy to turn on the local television every day and hear sports news dedicated to your favorite sport and team, and here in Spain the news has been filled with rumors and reports of La Liga and Real Madrid, and no more than 48hrs following the appointment of Florentino Pérez, some of the rumors are becoming a reality.
Both Kaká and Pellegrini are bound for Real, with Chelsea and A.C. Milan left holding the bag, and poor Villarreal looking for a new coach. Barcelona aren’t very happy either, as Pérez has made it clear that no price is too great for the Brazilian star, a move reminiscent of the Figo purchase that makes it nearly impossible for other clubs to compete with Real in the players market. Fans and supporters of Madrid see it as the perfect power play, and a strong statement that Real is still the wealthiest, and hence, biggest club in all of Europe. Does this move herald the beginning of another galactic era for Madrid?
I’ll be chatting with the locals and keeping my eyes on the news here these last few days of my trip in Spain to see where this all heads, but already the papers have Kaká wearing white. Que gusto!
