  I must begin with two apologies: 1. For posting this super late (summer laziness) and 2. for the camera failure I had during the game, meaning that the person in charge of the camera took atrocious pictures! Nonetheless, I am pleased to tell you that I had fantastic seats and a blast watching this brand spanking new Real Madrid. Here are the pics: 

 Most of the pictures are from the warm up and the first half as the second half was too exciting to bother to take pictures. Sorry, we really wanted to enjoy the game! The fans gathered as close as possible to see their heroes in the flesh.   

 Sergio Ramos got the most screams and the fans even started to chant his name. He returned the gesture with a wave and smile.  

The teams line up. Ramos is the captain.

I wanted to note that there was no Spanish national anthem played nor where the flags brought out like is accustomed. This most likely is due to the horrific error at the America v. Madrid match were the Franquist flag was displayed.

The moment Galaxy scores the first goal


 Second half. Ronaldo and the other big guns take the field. 


 Moments after Pedro Leon scores the third and final goal. Los Blancos win and leave 89,000+ fans who attended the Rose Bowl spectacle real happy. It was a special night indeed.

 I am fortunate to have seen this beloved team of mine twice, and let me tell you it is spectacular to see them physically in action. They storm into the grounds like warriors and yet they float around like angels. Maybe its the extra bright lights in the stadium or the fact that we know they are mega stars, but its something unique and indescribable of the aura that surrounds these players and more importantly the club. If this feeling comes over me when seeing them at the Rose Bowl, I can’t imagine the sensation one feels when stepping the grounds of the Bernabeu. Someday…
