Watching my dear Real Madrid at Text Boston…..
How cool it is to be watching Real Madrid’s Champions League semifinals game while at work???? Well, it doesn’t get any better than this. Text 100 is the coolest place to work for, no kidding. Actually, Text 100 has been named the Best Midsize Agency to Work For by the Holmes Report, two years in a row!!!! You can check out the announcement from earlier this week here.
Ok, coming back to football (soccer) or better yet, fútbol….so for those in my office who don’t understand why I was jumping off my chair yesterday (see Alison’s below post), this is a huge deal for people in Europe. I mean, the UEFA Champions League, the best European teams fighting against each other to get the amazing trophy, is la crème de la crème. We…. I mean Real Madrid… (yes I contributed to these wins as well J) hold the record for the most victories, winning the competition 9 times since its inception. Real Madrid won the inaugural competition. We’ve also won the competition the most times in a row - five times from 1956 to 1960… So, when we lost against Bayern Munich at our stadium, Santiago Bernabéu yesterday, I was really upset. But, as one of my colleagues said, life goes on…at least we’re really close to winning the national league, so there’s SOME consolation….
Thanks my dear colleagues for letting me watch the game, for putting up with me yelling and running around the office like a maniac….for teaching me so many “American” things… I’m so happy to be at Text 100 Boston!!
