Congratulations to Levante UD, who beat Castellón on Saturday to seal their spot in the top Spanish league next year. Which means soccer fans here will have twice as many chances to watch the sport at its highest level… I hope that Real Madrid and Barcelona enjoy Valencia, cause they’ll each be visiting it twice next season.
On a related note… what exactly is up with Valencian soccer “fans”? I have never seen a people so utterly disinterested in the World Cup, and that includes the USA! Yesterday, I was at a bar watching the Netherlands defeat Denmark and, although the place was full, I was literally the only one paying any attention. Even after a goal, no one looked up. Even the guy wearing a soccer jersey! It’s been that way in every bar I’ve been to … the only people watching the games are foreigners. The Spaniards couldn’t care less. They even seem to be making a little show of how much they don’t care.
What is that?
