Well, any of you who missed today's Real Madrid-Barcelona game missed one of the most beautiful displays ever of the Beautiful Game. Ronaldinho scored two "gol de placa" (Portuguese for goals so beautiful monuments should be built in their honor). After the second time he dribbled through the Madrid defense and scored to make it 0-3, a considerable number of Madrid fans (complete with scarves and other paraphenalia indicating they were, in fact RM fans) stood up and gave Ronaldinho a standing ovation. After all the bad feelings of the last round of World Cup qualifiers, what a relief to see fans who love and appreciate the game so much, they can rise to applaud the opposing player who has just humilliated their team. I raise a cup to you, Real Madrid. And to Ronaldinho and Barca too!!!
