After we watched them practice for a little while, we made the rather long climb up, up, up to our seats. We knew our seats were high up but we had no idea how high until we got up there and we were only 2 rows from the very top. The good thing about that though was that we were in the shade.

The game started and it was a blast! The Galaxy lost 4-1 but it was still great fun. Just being there seeing it live made it so much more exciting. The fans at soccer games are really lively and that was allot of fun seeing - all the chants and the drums beating and flags waiving - it was all so fun! We got us all Jersey's to support the Galaxy but I think Grace and Zachary's favorite thing about the entire game was the cotton candy. They were completely happy once they got that.
I just thought this was really neat. Every so often the fans across from us would unroll this huge DC United flag in the shape of their jersey. Dave said allot of clubs do this but I just thought it was really neat looking.

After the game, we got in the car and made the drive back to North Carolina.
