On Sunday 28th , a team of Football Legends defeated a  legendary and impossible Atlético de Madrid in Calderón   (5-4). Atlético was impossible  because the team was a patchwork of players from different epochs. Not bad for all those oldy goldies.

It was the closing match. Atlético supporters roared at times. Some of them took their seats home: they were allowed to.

Since 1966: all those Sundays.

Meanwhile, other  small, modest teams were  laboriously working their way up to the legend . Cultural Leonesa was one of them. On the same Sunday, they made it to Second Division, after 42 years!

All kinds of legends: the same effort, places are limited, glory is scarce.

  1. We are proud of the Cultural.

  2. You are only too right to be. Culture is what gives us life and hope, and we are so lucky to be surrounded by so much of it.

  3. Yes, I agree with the two Fernandos.
