: SJ vs. Tampa Bay

I went to watch the San Jose Earthquakes take on the Tampa Bay Muntiny today. This was the first soccer game — first sporting event of any kind actually — I’ve seen in person (i.e non-televised). I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I was intimated by all the crowds, but it turns out I had a great time and the crowd was a big part of it: you really get caught up in the momentum of the crowd’s excitement at a game. I’m certainly going to go to more of these. I also — and this was really cool — got MLS leading scorer Mamadou Diallo’s autograph, and had a brief (very brief) chat with him!
