I know this is stupid. But sometimes I forget that people – real people – go to games. They’ll buy tickets and parking, food and beer. And they’ll have a great time.
Well, that’s what I did Saturday night in LA, catching a soccer game as a fan with friends, Rob & Renée. Real Madrid (and yes, Ronaldo and his orange spikes) was in town. (swoon, ladies, swoon!)
The Spaniards spotted LA a 2-0 lead, before playing Ronaldo in the second half and soundly spanking the yanks, 3-2. The two halves felt like two entirely different games.
It was nice to be schlepping cold beers and not heavy gear. Sometimes, it’s good just to sit back and relax.
