Spain to have 3,214-mile parade through Spain

Spain has the World Cup. Now they plan to celebrate in front of their fans with a parade throughout the center of Spain. The parade will begin in the northwest corner of the country, head down through Madrid, Sevilla and Cadiz, then along the Mediterranean coast up to Barcelona, circle back towards Madrid again, but then head up along the northern border. At 5-10 mph, the parade is expected to take 18 days. "Oh, no," said Spanish forward David Villa. "I actually kind of wish now that we had lost." The parade route will be significantly shorter than the 7,964-mile parade Brazil had in 2002. That parade lasted nearly three months due to dense jungle terrain, and half of the team died.
