On today´s episode of Forza Futbol, we are joined by madridistas and culés alike to celebrate and argue about the most anticipated match of the entire Spanish League season, the Clásico between Real Madrid CF and FC Barcelon, and the morbo you hear in this episode is palpable.
On one side of the table is my partner Elisa, the one match all year that she can let loose her inner merengue and say what she really feels about the blaugrana. Backing her up is our friend and contributer Raphael Harry, from Virginia Beach, Virginia by way of Nigeria and the United States Navy, and one of the most fearsome Real Madrid supporters in the Western Hemisphere. On the blaugrana side we are joined by Señor Segunda himself, Arch Bell who writes the Segunda Focus column for La Liga Weekly and a committed officer of the culé nation, paid up soci, and regular Nou Camp kool-aid drinker. And yet, in his corner is someone who needs no blogs, no podcasts and no weekly writing gigs to support FC Barcelona. Raül has been one of our most fervent listeners and as hard-core, old-skool an FC Barcelona supporter as there ever has been. Would you live in Barrio Salamanca in the heart of Madrid and wear your colors with pride? What if they were the wrong colors?
