On Tuesday morning, Novermber 30th, I woke up with what I now have officially diagnosed as Post Clasico fever.
Post Clasico fever (Noun)
Definition: A condition in which a Cule or a Madridista can’t get enough of El Clasico-related articles, videos and photographs. It especially strikes when the match was sublime, the margin of victory huge and the playing style total football. The patient can’t get himself to focus on work/studies and keeps remembering bits from the match. Studies have shown that in the last three years Real Madrid fans have not suffered from this disease.
Cules across the world would certainly have done some if not all of the many things listed below that I found myself doing.
- Did anyone not enjoy seeing (repeatedly) the troubled, frazzled, harrowed, frustrated and fallen faces of the Madrid players and especially that of the The Special One?
- Did you find yourself going through Twitter feeds of all professional players and coaches who were going gaga about the performance of our dear team?
- Did you find yourself shedding a few tears of joy while watching the highlights?
- Didn’t you at least once strike the Manita pose for the camera?
- Were your friends and family told countless and endless stories surrounding the match for days, so much so that they got tired of it?
- Didn’t you turn to the sports page of the newspaper and immediately cut the bits out about the victory?
- Did you have various sports-related sites open on your work computer and switched to reading them whenever your boss wasn’t noticing?
Tell us – what did you do in the aftermath of the victory? How have you been celebrating this amazing match? The comment section awaits. . . .
