I love Felipe and Letizia but they seem to be "bad luck" at Spain's international sporting events. Spain always seems to lose whenever they show up for the match. :)

Hmm. Thatīs not good to hear. I wonder if it was cold in the arena where the match was? Letizia wears a scarf and coat the whole time.

Since I did get the "Acess Denied" message as well, I decided to attach the pictures.

One opinion about Letizia, she's really a funny cheer....;)
