Granada Returns to La Liga after Defeating Elche CF

The Spanish football team Granada CF has won promotion and returned to La Liga after a 35-year absence. The third Andalusian football team won the right to La Liga on the away goals rule after defeating Elche in the Spanish second division play-off final, second leg on Saturday, June 18, 2011. Granada CF, who have never won a major honor, has become the first winner of the promotion playoffs and secured promotion from the Segunda Division to La Liga for the first time since 1976 after successively defeating Celta de Vigo and Elche CF. Let’s see how Granada celebrate their return to La Liga through photos as follows:

Six years ago, while FC Barcelona emerged as the champion of La Liga, Granada were still playing in the fourth tier of Spanish football

Granada’s highest finish in La Liga is sixth. The team has never won the King’s Cup and only found itself in the lowly depths of the Tercera Division five years ago

Granada has never won a major honor in their 80-year history. The club has been back to the top-tier of Spanish soccer just three times since 1941 as it was first promoted to La Liga

The last time when Granada played in La Liga was the 1975 – 1976 season as the club was ultimately relegated

New England Revolution unravel after penalty kick call in loss to DC United

Penalty Kick – Panning Panorama
Penalty kick

And why not. Perhaps posted just for curiousity’s sake. This is a six picture panned sequence of a penalty kick, made into a panorama in Photoshop. Surprisingly (to me, at least), it catches the initial position of the kicker (pic #1) and the last position of the goalie and ball (pic #6). Though I seldom use the "spray and pray" method of shooting, this method actually turned out okay. Better viewed large if you’ve got the time 🙂

Edit: I’ve replaced the original with this one that shows the ball’s tracking. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this in the first place.
