Mascherano Farewell

The ceremony the day before the Espanyol match was touching: videos with all the current team talking about what an example he has been in the dressing room and on the pitch. A special video greeting from Xavi. They had all the trophies he helped win on display. 14 Trophies, not including whatever they wind up winning this year (which I think should be counted). Officials from the club had plenty of nice things to say, but I especially liked all the remarks from the players.

Houston Penya

The Houston Cules, formed just a year ago, has now become the Penya Blaugrana Houston. They just announced their new official status with the club as a penya. And right now, they’re looking to build up membership with an inaugural membership rate of zero dollars. If there’s a Barcelona game on TV, you can most likely find them at the Richmond Arms Pub in Houston. To find out more, you can find them on Facebook as Houston Cules.
