This summer, (first week of July) Moncton was privileged to host some of the preliminary games for the FIFA Women's Worldcup. Here are some photos I took during one of the games.
This was my first wordcup game, wahoo! We watched Costa Rica versus Brazil.
Some call it football, some soccer. In the Philippines, we refer to it as the latter. Football for us would be what others call rugby.
I had some idea of the rules and going-ons in the game but I found them too far to really enjoy and see the action. I was also missing a commentator, it felt too quiet. Is that just on TV where they comment on every move.... "She scores!!!" something like that... or, "oh, that was close... a good block from 'Gabrielle'..." Well, hubby did it for me, he acted as the commentator as best as he can and the other ones sitting around us didn't seem to mind. In fact, the lady just in front of us started to ask questions as if acting as a secondary commentator. That was fun.
Everybody seemed to think that it's a done game - Brazil will take it, no question. So I secretly hoped Costa Rica would win. It was also fun cheering against hubby. Well? Brazil proved everyone right. They won :-)
Someday, what I would really want to see is a live NBA game.
Have you been to any sort of live games?
