Soccer
« on: July 09, 2009, 06:59:13 AM »

I went last night to RFK to see the highest level soccer match I've ever witnessed.  It was a double header in the Gold Cup, which is a tournament between central and north american teams.  First match was Haiti vs. Grenada.  Haiti prevailed 2-0.   The headliner game was USA vs. Honduras, with the same score as the result, USA getting the win. 

There were only 26,000 or so fans, but it was a fantastic atmosphere.  It was hard to tell who the crowd supported more, as Honduras were very well represented.  The first U.S. goal was good...you could see the play developing for a while and the payoff was gratifying.  The second goal was quicker, and sealed the game.

Traffic getting out wasn't bad because the average passengers per car was eight.

Zero hour, Michael. It's the end of the line. I'm the firstborn. I'm sick of playing second fiddle. I'm always third in line for everything. I'm tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I'm mad about, and I'm taking over.

It really shouldn't.

perhaps you could explain sd's reasons for "disliking" it as well since you seem to be so in tune with other peoples minds

It ought to have an entire forum.

I've recently decided to support Liverpool in the premier league based on my love for the Pink Floyd song Fearless from Meddle (1971).

Fly Eagles Fly doesn't compare, even if it is the best NFL fan song.

I've recently decided to support Liverpool in the premier league based on my love for the Pink Floyd song Fearless from Meddle (1971). 

Excellent!  :yay

I admit, I have little feel for the game, although I certainly don't have anything against it (a game with 2 billion or so fans around the world must have something going for it!). I've known a few soccer fans in the US who are very passionate about the game, and with my regular visits to Thailand since 2006, I've had some interesting conversations, mostly with Europeans, about it (I also find it interesting that the Thais themselves are typically avid fans of English Premier League soccer).

So, I'm open to being educated.

Dio, maybe you've mentioned it on another thread, but what spurred your interest in soccer? (That question goes for any other soccer fans on the board, too)
