Better Betis

I have a TV now and satelite connection, so my life will now take a great leap in terms of being able to watch football!
Although many people like Barcelona, I think it is great when teams like these are humbled by a smaller team. And it was great today to watch Betis, from the Spanish second Division, defeat the best team in the world 3-1 in the quarterfinal of Copa del Rey. Granted, Barcelona won the first match 5-1, and are in the semifinal, and today played with many reserves, but that does not take away that Betis played a great match against a team that even with substitutes should have been better. It was in fact disappointing to see some of the Barcelona reserves not play well, and hold far less possession than one is used to from FC Barcelona. Betis was great nevertheless, and everyone should greatly look forward to seeing them in the Spanish first division!
