Beijing Olympic Games: Football Semi-Finals---Argentina v.s. Brazil

2008.08.19
pixel
Ok, so I just arrived from the semi-final football match between Argentina and Brazil. It was crazy. The Argentinians were crazy. The Brazilians were crazier.

This is my first football game I've ever watched. I'm not a football fan really. But, I know which player is hot. David Beckham is not hot. Oh, please. But, Santiago and Kaka are. :)) Yeah, I really have a soft heart for Latinos.

Photo below:
The venue.

The Brazilian flag.

The Argentinian flag.
pixel
Crazy fans.
pixel
Crazier fans.
pixel
Craziest fan. :)
pixel
Dual citizenship?
pixel
Yes, this is for ALL of YOU who never ran out of words to say about my posts!

Now, it feels like you were there! :))
pixel
The crowd few minutes after the start of the Game.
pixel
I hate how the lights. It's not awesome for photos. :))
pixel
The guards securing the wide oval. They have never seen the actual event. They watched on the huge screen in front of them.
pixel
First round.
pixel
The photo journalists with their high-powered cameras.
pixel
The audience intently watching every move of the feet, legs and ball.
pixel
Sardines, anyone?
pixel
More sardines.
pixel
The first half finished with nil scores.
pixel
During the break, I went out to buy drinks. Instead, I found my Italian friend with this shirt on.
pixel
Number 9 is cute but not hot.
They call him Pato (not sure)?

In my dialect, Pato means duckling.
pixel
When Argentina scored, the audience stood up and roared in unison.
pixel
Everybody looked at the huge screen for the recap and waited for the score board to change.
pixel
Then, the audience roared, thundered like crazy!
pixel
And the Brazilians were down-hearted.
pixel
pixel
I was bored.
I went upstairs.
pixel
Then, I found these cute men.
pixel
The score was 3-0 in favor of Argentina. Brazil football team is more popular than Argentina in China. But, that night, I heard more Argentina fans screaming to the top of their lungs.
pixel
Photo op with the Brazilians who were reallllly sad.
But, I told them that no reason to be sad because Brazilian men are hotter than the Argentinians. :))
pixel
Ugh! I was not ready to pose.
I want to get another shot but the policeman already told us to leave. :((
Damn it!
pixel
This is US after the Game!
We look like midgets! :((
