THE BEAUTIFUL GAME
Went to my first live soccer match Thursday night at Giants Stadium. It was David Beckham's first game in the US this year (returning to the Los Angeles Galaxy from AC Milan) against the New York Red Bulls.
Of the 23,000-plus in attendance, there was a decent turnout of Beckham/Galaxy fans.
Cool to see one of the greats playing in person.
Live soccer seems much faster-paced than it appears on television.
Overall, I had a good time. Seeing soccer in person gave me a better appreciation for "the beautiful game". Can't wait to catch the Red Bulls in their new soccer-specific stadium next year.
