Kuwaitis Over the Moon with Gulf Cup Win

Kuwait wins the Gulf Cup with 1-0 score against Saudi Arabia. the last time they won was in 1998, truly, a very long wait. The traffic yesterday at Gulf road was horrendous as Kuwaiti football fans celebrated by honking their horns. Some climbed on top of their cars, waving flags and even dancing.

The Blues (Al Azraq), the Kuwait National Football team, return to a heroes welcome. Not only that, they received $1 Million from the National Bank of Kuwait and 1 Million KWD (that's 150 Million pesos!) from His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah. Being a football player is truly lucrative! My future son should be a one...
