But we are changing that camp to a more "stylish" one.

The interesting thing about the Monaco F1 circuit, is that all of the street signs, etc, in town are numbered, so that when they pull them up for the race, they know where to put them afterward.

F1 is my other passion. Walking through the tunnel, you can still see impact marks, where cars hit the walls.

I think F1 is such an artificial sport. The technique is too decisive. If they all would drive the same car, i would like it.

The new stadium is still a far way of, as it seems.

Kxevin said...

Unfortunately, Groga, they're working toward that. Stock wings, ECUs, single tire supplier....

In some ways it will be better, but the big money teams will always find a way, as with football.

The new stadium is still a ways off indeed, and I'm okay with that. Those of you who have been to the Camp Nou know what I mean, when I say that the place almost hums from the history. Yes it's a little tatty, but that just adds to its charm.

Of course, I get teased for always sitting on the Tribuna side, but one rainy match cures you of wanting to truly be with the people. :D

We are on top of everything because Barca is more than a club.

Great to see the Melbourne Cricket Ground on the list. Camp Nou was always expected. Melbourne is the best sporting city in the world. We have the MCG, F1 Grand Prix, Australian Open Tennis Grand Slam, Motorbike Championship with Rossie, Stoner etc and of course the Melbourne Cup Horse Race. No other city can boast a sporting calender like that! Go Barca against Racing.
