My first footballing memory is probably Urruti stopping a penalty kick against Valladolid to win Barcelona's first league title in eleven years, back in 1985. I happened to be in the city with my parents at the time, and there was celebrations and cars honking like crazy all over the place. I guess I just wanted to be a part of all that joy, so that's what made me a Barça fan. Don't blame me, I was six at the time.
Of course that moment of light was followed by the endless darkness of five consecutive league titles for Hugo Sánchez-led Real Madrid, so it took a liiittle while for more joy
