Spanish Madness

Valencia's early strike provided a two-goal aggregate lead in the Spanish Super Cup, but Real Madrid roared back and, despite finishing the game with nine players, claimed a 4-2 victory and a 6-5 series conquest.

Some great highlights. Be sure to turn the volume up to 11. (Let's hope the video gods do not decide to deny access.)

I hate when typos ruin a perfectly good line:

If that announcer ever calls a higer scoring game, he will have an aneurysm.

Oh my!


The announcer is more exciting than the game.

Get that guy to announce for ESPN, ten times better than the crappyness they manage to dig up.

this game was awesome. it was so awesome i'm not even going to complain about how the fsc announcers seemed to have a really shaky grasp on the signifigance of away goals and aggregate scores. robben was incredible in the second half, just doing whatever he wanted. pretty sad to see robinho sulking on the bench, though.

also, i think it's a safe bet that ray hudson's head would have exploded at some point during this game, if he were calling it.

I skipped this one because usually these game are a joke.

Was Valencia purchased by Roma?

I thought Spain got rid of the Moors.

Why do they bother showing the team owners? The old Soviet-era apparatchiks at the May Day parade in Moscow had more life than these guys.

Well, there's the weird Spanish tradition that they have to sit next to each other, which makes things look even odder...

One of the more amazing matches of all time. I tuned in for the last 35 minutes and was in disbelief when they said Real was down a man. If Robben stays healthy the team will be very dangerous and Robinho won't be missed at all.

Given Valencia's positively criminal marking, it's astonishing that they were ahead on aggregate in the first place...
