I have been a Madridista since my first experience with Real Madrid while attending a game at the Bernabeu in 2010. Of course, I knew they existed before then, however, as a kid growing up in North America, I had my interests firmly planted in hockey, American football, basketball and the like. On that trip to Spain, our close friends decided it would be cool to check out a professional football match while we were there, and bought tickets to see Real Madrid play Osasuna. I was hooked. I fell in love with the beautiful game and Los Blancos. While I’m not a born Madrid fan, sometimes converts are the most passionate!
