My First "Football" Game

by Chossid April. 28, 2012 7454 views

“Football” meaning soccer everywhere except in the United States.

We were given free tickets, so we took our youngest son, a boy who is a part of our family, and his friend. Honestly, I only went for the pics, but ended up enjoying it. Not a violent game like “American football,” except when riots erupt after games!

My husband and the 2 younger boys sat in VIP, while my son and I sat closer to the game…

These Odessa fans from Brooklyn were surrounded by police – they didn't want any rioting, as has happened in the past!

Girls finding other things to do during the game ~ like brushing mommy's hair

Goal!

2 goals by Shinder within 3 minutes! 2-0 we won!

They had to wait until everyone else had exited the stadium!

I don't know what this thing is called, but it was funny seeing the fan blow it in the face of the policemen…

Oh, so you are also back in the Ukraine! We are practically neighbors now! Soccer is not my cup of tea, either!

Your games have lots of action at your games. It surprises me that police have to control the fans during the game that is supposed to be for entertainment. It is one of the most popular sports worldwide, even in the Americas. As a kid, it was just starting to be played in Canada in the mid seventies and now it is our top summer sport.
You have captured the whole feel of the experience Leah.

Quite a day, and yes I to hate the violence that is now a part of the game of football in some areas.....after all it's meant to be a team game! but great captures in the sunshine.

I like the "fan" in number 2. Good set, Leah. ([i]You know, it really is something to me how here in Europe there is that chance that the riot police need to come out for certain games and that there are actually people who use "sport" to vent their anger over personal and social issues. And those people call it "sport"?[/i])
