Good evening :-)

Well, I'm sitting having a wonderful time (as always!) in PP but Little One has fallen asleep and I'd love to watch the footie tonight but can't obviously go out. Now, we have two digital boxes but I don't actually have a clue if either of them will show any of the matches? :-/ We have an 'NPG' box and an 'Fte' box .... any help from you guys/gals would be much appreciated :-)

Well I didn't have any luck lol. I found 'Tele 5' using both digital boxes but they both came up with 'Sin Signal'. There's lots and lots of channels but couldn't get that one or Mallorcan TV.... thought it quite odd if that's the local tele channels :-/

The TV Mallorca channel has closed down i am afraid but there is IB3 which is the Balearic channel, not sure if they are showing any of the matches though .

There was a brilliant atmosphere in the Port last night, tvs everywhere and the whole place erupted with cheers, whistles, hooters and car horns when the final whistle went and Spain had won. Aparently it was the first time ever that Spain had beaten France in a competative match .
It was lovely to see and chat to a few forum members in Nostalgia later in the evening .

The atmosphere was very tense on a hot and humid night, penalty shoot out , chants of "Iker, Iker, Iker" and finally an eruption of cheers, hooters, whistles and car horns.............can i get my BP down to a safe level before Sunday????? .

Apologies for talking football but if you are here you really can't help but get involved and enjoy the party .
