July 31- Gilligan cat, Otakoners and football/soccer match

2010.07.31
pixel
One of friends Marci and Andy's 3 cats, Gilligan. He's about a year old and looks like the grown up version of one of Lisa D's boys.

Met Marci and Andy downtown because we were going to an exhibition football/soccer match, so went for drinks and food first. This weekend was also Otakon, the Japanese manga and anime convention downtown, so lotsa cosplay kids roaming about. (You might remember pics from last year of this).

So much fun! More cosplay goin' on than Harajuku on a Sunday! ;-)

Don't get to see this kinda thing often- an exhibition game between Inter Milan and Manchester City Football clubs. Played on Ravens stadium, our US football stadium.
pixel
Not all the way full, but a pretty decent turnout.

Really funny to see the juxtaposition of things that normally aren't seen together. IE. The ads on the stadium wrap, and how about some Manchester City flags over top the Ravens.
It was funny to hear the same announcer who does the Orioles baseball games calling this football/soccer game.
pixel
Oop- somebody didn't like that call- yellow card!
pixel
Inter Milan guy gets hit in the head.
pixel
Get up, you're okay.
pixel
and he does.... score- Inter Milan 3, Manchester City- nil.

bouds They're having one of those here too. Real Madrid vs some-body-or-other. Love the anime geeks!

Oweena Our exhibition soccer games have been sell-outs.
Seattle has embraced soccer pretty whole-heartedly.

thisismizb The one they had last year was because it was better known teams. (I think Chelsea was one of them)

truenic I love your comment about "get up". Hear hear! I've played soccer and I've played hockey. What a bunch of pansies soccer players can be.

sydneylizzie Wow, quality teams considering "soccer" isn't such a big thing over there. And believe me, the Italians are the world's worst divers (with the possible exception of Cristiano Ronaldo...)
