Achieving the Impossible

Congrats to Spain, as they've achieved what no other team before them could...

Euro 2008


World Cup 2010


Euro 2012


Three consecutive major tournament victories.  I'm not even sure what to equate the wins to in American sports..  The Yankees and A's are two teams who come to mind for winning back-to-back-to-back World Series. The Pats and the Cowboys won 3 Super Bowl titles over 4 years (beginning to sense a pattern with my least favorite teams here). However,those leagues only take place in the U.S..  The Olympics are worldwide, but rarely do they showcase more than individual dominance. Therefore, based on my little research, due to having just arrived home from a wedding in gorgeous Idaho (no sarcasm, the place was breathtaking), Spain has achieved what used to be considered the impossible!  Now there's only one question left to ask.  Will they do it again in Brazil?  I can't wait to watch them try!

P.S. Iker should be in every post-game photograph. Forever. And ever. Amen.

P.P.S. Can't leave out the awww factor, since we're lacking in shirtless soccer players...

Is that a ticking I hear? Must look away...


  1. Although my Azzurri lost yesterday, at least it was an historical event. Good for Spain. They look unbeatable right now, and have to be the odds-on favorites at the World Cup.
