My favorite La Liga Team, Real Madrid ralied to beat Valencia 4-2 and lift the Spanish Supercup 6-5 on aggregate last Sunday. The Spanish Supercup, for your info, is an event contested annually by the league champion and the Copa del Rey winner. What is most amazing is that Real Madrid has only nine players that game and a series of ejections, first by midfielder Rafael van der Vaart who was ejected in the 39th minute and striker Ruud van Nistelrooy in the 73rd minute did not hurt the results of the game. Ruud van Nistelrooy, Sergio Ramos, Ruben De La Red and Gonzalo Higuain scored for Madrid whereas one of my favorite Spanish Hottie –  Valencia’s David Silva opened the scoring, with Fernando Morientes completing a late goal rush at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. This is the eighth time Madrid won the trophy —  — and the first since 2003. Sigh, it was such a great game and seeing hot and sweaty Raul lifting the trophy sure does makes my day.
