To say the least. I have pics from my visit to the RM museum at the Bernabeu last summer. Here are titles of some of the exhibits, and I am not kidding about this:
"The Greatest Football Team Of All Time" (guess who)
"The Greatest Football President Of All Time" (stadium namesake)
"How The Greatest Football President Of All Time Found The Greatest Player Of All Time" (Di Stefano)
"How The Greatest Football President Of All Time Created The Competition Now Known As The Champions League, Which We Win All The Time" (that would be 9 times)
I have a pic of myself standing in front of all the European trophies but one was chopped out of the pic because there was insufficient room on the pic frame.
The RM museum is the gaudiest orgy of silverware and self-promoting chest beating you will see on the planet. It was great.
