ATLAS vs. ATLAS

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

While CMS folks are off scuba diving in Cyprus, ATLAS is entertaining itself in a somewhat more strenuous way back here in Bern — playing an intramural soccer game in the Stade de Suisse: The ATLAS Lions vs. the ATLAS Warriors. OK, most of us are goofing off watching, and rattling yellow noisemakers every time something happens to either team (I mean we’re all collaborators in the end), but we certainly wouldn’t all fit on the field. I’ll let you know the score, when it’s over (too tired to liveblog, given that I gave a talk today).

UPDATE: Lions 5, Warrors 3 — ATLAS wins! Um.

Victory

Monday, June 30th, 2008

And the winner of the Euro Cup is… SPAIN!!!

This is too good to be true. Needless to say, I am totally thrilled. For so many years, we fans of the Spanish team have waited patiently for this moment. I mean, who can forget Spain’s painful loss in penalties to South Korea in the quarter finals of the 2002 World Cup? Or barely not advancing to the quarter finals in Euro 2004? Or that devastating loss to France in the round of 16 of the World Cup 2006? But only one victory makes up for all the losses.

So, what is next?

For Spain. World Cup 2010 and victory again!!

For non-soccer fans. A return to sanity.

For me. It’s back to work.
