Which goal, you ask? A pretty big one that happened nine months ago.
The one that secured Barcelona's place in the Champions League final.
Well, apparently that goal (coupled with a 6-2 win over Real Madrid that week) set off a night of passion in Catalonia. And nine months later, there's a shortage of hospital beds in the area for expecting mothers.
A survey by COMRadio showed that births this week and those expected next week are 45 percent higher than the average.Wow. That's a heckuva honor.
“When we notice some sort of surge we look for the reason and it’s evident that the cause of the increase this week is the euphoria of Barca fans thanks to the huge win and Iniesta’s goal,” El Mundo newspaper quoted Mercedes Rodriguez of the city’s Quiron Clinic as saying.
The babies are popularly known in Barcelona as “the Iniesta generation”.
I wonder how many babies will be named Andres.
