#48 Attend a Soccer Game

Back in December, I bought club seats for the opening home game of the LA Galaxy as a Christmas present for a friend. Almost thought we weren't gonna make the game, but we did, and it turned out to be pretty good game. Their opponent was DC United, and by half time, DC was up 1-0. In the 2nd half, Galaxy tied, then DC scored a beautiful 2nd shot. Then, in the 85th minute, Galaxy tied up the game, 2-2. Pretty exciting. I think Mirza bonded with the ol man next us over the Galaxy's performance in the 2nd half, hahaha.

And now that I've given my sporty spectator's review of the game, here's my ditzy girly review: first off, I noticed that the stadium isn't as big as when you watch the games on FSC. But then again, everything and everyone looks bigger on TV... But it was great being there in person. And I can see why it'd be a great venue to host concerts in the summer. Coldplay will be playing there, as well as Dave Matthews and I am bummed I will not be attending either. (I did get Coldplay tix at the Irvine Amphitheatre tho! yesss!! ahem, excuse me, Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre...) Hopefully I will be attending more soccer events as well as concerts there in the future...

Next, I'd like to point out my observation that DC United has hotter players than Galaxy. Unfortunately for them, but fortunately for me, Patterson and McTavish collided into each other at one point in the game, coming off the field for medical attention. Why that is a good thing for me: blood = taking off of the /jersey shirt. Prolly one of the highlights of the experience next to watching Galaxy score goals. But sorry Galaxy, you've downgraded in many aspects since Beckham ran off to play with Italy for a while. I've gotta say, I think soccer players are by far, the hottest type of athletes out there. Yes, I tend to have a thing for basketball players, but the height thing can be an issue sometimes given that I am vertically challenged with a 5'1" cap. So any of you soccer players, hollaaaaa! hahaha, jk ;p ... sort of...

On to the next goal to accomplish!
