Flash mobs, and Madrid

So, I was on the phone not too long ago (last Sunday?), and the following three things happened: someone screamed, a car drove by loudly (in a beeping, rattling way), and something, somewhere, exploded.

This was all explained not too long afterwards, when streams and streams of people with cars and horns and motorbikes and banners kept driving by on the street, making happy honking and yelling sounds.

It was all for a soccer game!
Someone won, apparently!

It was Real Madrid (and, apparently, David Beckham's last game with them, since it seems that someone's decided that he should be the one to breathe life into American professional soccer.)

I’m glad I wasn’t in Madrid for that, or a fan of the opposing team.
