Football, Soccer, Soccer, Football

On Saturday, we went to our very first football (soccer) game here in London—Chelsea vs Everton.  Even though we haven’t yet chosen a team to follow, we were cheering for Chelsea (the home team, of course) but the game ended in a 1-1 tie.  Nevertheless, we had a great time.  It was so much fun to watch as the players move the ball around so fast and all the fans (young to old) were singing cheers.  They don’t sell beer during the game (only before the game and at halftime) so fans actually watch the entire game.  Hmmm.  What a concept.  People here LOVE their football.  It’s all about the football.  Can’t wait to go to another game…maybe when it’s a tad or two warmer.
