…in the world are Football and Futbol!!!

As a child I developed a fondness for the NFL and the Dallas Cowboys (Yes, I am fully aware they have looked like struggle and despair for the last 20 years and got did super dirty by the New Orleans Saints Sunday night, SO WHAT!)

And, I absolutely LOVE soccer, not really MLS but rather, national teams and  international clubs, e.g. English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, etc.

While the U.S. doesn’t get many international games, over the last year I have seen some pretty awesome match ups.

 

June 9, 2012 -Met Life Stadium

Argentina vs. Brazil – These pictures were taken on the ultra shady phone I had at the time, no cameras were allowed and they came out HORRIBLE. But, the game was the Amazing. It was completely sold out (90,000 people) and people came from near and far to attend. Let me just say, people from both Brazil and Argentina showed up and showed out. They know how to party!

Of course Brazil was the favorite and they did well, but Messi, was the F’n man! I just don’t know how else to say it…Argentina won 4-3, with Messi scoring 3 of the goals.

 

July 19, 2012 – Yankee Stadium

Chelsea vs. PSG – My fav EPL team. They were coming off their 2012 UEFA Champions League win and I was uber excited to see them, even tho Drogba had recently been traded, still excited! However, I don’t remember much about game, Ramadan had just started, I was fasting, NO Drobga, No Torres and I was over it.

 

August 9, 2012 – Yankee Stadium

Real Madrid vs. AC Milan- This game right here!!! This game was the highlight of my soccer life!!! I would almost say it was better than any NFL game I’ve ever attended, however, I’m almost sure that would be blasphemous, so I won’t say it. But, Ronaldo aka Glamour Boy aka C-Ro and Prince aka KPB in the same place, at the same damn time?!?! What could be better…Oh everyone else was cool too.

Also, don’t know if you noticed, but, the seat gods came thru for me, great seats!

 

August 14, 2013 – Met Life Stadium

Cote D’ Ivoire (Ivory Coast) vs. Mexico- FINALLY… a Drogba sighting!!! If you know me or have read my bio, then you know I am from San Diego, which is as far south as you can go in California before hitting the Mexican Border. While I have a super warm spot in my heart for Mexico and all things Mexican, this DOESNT apply when they are going up against Didier Drogba and Les Éléphants (The Elephants). Sorry Mexico. But, actually it’s the Ivory Coast fans that should be sorry because Mexico beat the absolute hell out of them. Score was 4-1, Mexico. Of course Didier came thru with a goal from a free kick but that was it.

All in all, it was so worth it. I had great seats and got to see one of the best footballers out of West Africa and my favorite player…Didier #TeamDrogba
