A Barça Game Full of Firsts & Lasts

I had always said to Dante that he'd go to see a football match once he was 4 years old. We were lucky enough to get a free ticket to last week's Barça match. As luck would have it, the game would be a series of "firsts" and "lasts" for us and the team:

  • Last time Guardiola would coach in el Campo Nou
  • Last home game of the season
  • Last time I can probably take Diego to see a game and have him get in for free
  • First game ever for Dante
  • First game ever for all three of us together
  • First time for someone to break the single season scoring record in all competitions (Messi) since the 1920s
  • First time for someone (Messi) get to 50 league goals in a single season
90 minutes can be long for young kids, even if it is watching great football.  Nevertheless, being there was special and something that I'll never forget. Thank you Eva and Xavi for getting the ticket for us.

Just me and the boys with great seats...
