It's official, I am now a European - I'm a soccer fan. G was fortunate to be given some club seats to the Ajax vs Herenveen this past Sunday afternoon so I was lucky to tag along. We departed for the game 45 minutes before the start and after circling the Amsterdam Arena several times (those ring roads can be tricky) we finally found our way into the stadium to find the game well under way 3 to zip. Fans of each team chanted taunts (I imagine as it was all in Dutch) across the stadium while their teams played on. I can see the allure of soccer for a fan as it is akin to a drama production;
The villainous opposing team/fans, a musical score created by the crowd, the scenes are full of action that never stops, the actors (players) know how to take a bow (dive).....and there's beer!
