Did you know that Dallas has a professional soccer team?

So tonight was my first experience watching a live professional soccer game. Ok, to be honest it was only my second time watching a soccer game that involved individuals older than 5. My friend David invited me to see FC Dallas vs. The New York Redbulls (yep, like the energy drink). I am always a little bit weirded out by soccer, how can you play a game that can end in a tie?? Anyways, FC Dallas scored their first goal in the first minute of the game. That was exciting. It is also exciting to see the "die hard" cheer section (I'm sure they have a name) these fans chanted and banged on drums for 90 + straight minutes. Very entertaining. Dallas scored another goal in the second half. Best of all the game did not end in a tie, it ended 2-0 with Dallas taking the win. I wish I could give you more details, but I'm tired. To finish, it was a great experience that I hope to have again. Plus, hanging out with David and Chad (if you don't know Chad, he's that guy that can make watching paint dry, fun) is always a good time.

Thanks guys!

Sounds like you had fun. I bet it wasn't as fun as Christina's and Charlotte's Web though.
