Futbol fans! Pics from last nights Mexico vs. China game!

Recommended Posts

Last night we went to the Mexico vs. China soccer game at Qwest Field here in Seattle for Mexico's world tour. It was sooo much fun, the energy was astounding. I've never seen so many Mexican flags in one place! There were over 56,000 people in attendance, it was just crazy! Mexico won 1-0, to the excitement of about 95% of the crowd, us included! Here are some fun pics for ya :)

ya, we got a handful of 'em wink.gif i can say this because i'm 1/4 mexican (no joke, i'm serious) but we got a lotta mexicans around us. we live in west seattle, but just south of us is burien, where the kids go to school cause their mom lives there, and their school is about 85% mexican. the kids even pick up a bit of spanish at school, it's pretty cool. i knew it was a pretty big population in our area, but last night proved it! it was an awesome turnout. what a great experience for "my people"! hehe wink.gif

well, there is usually seattle sounders soccer, but altho they have a small but excitable following, it's just not at all what soccer was meant to be.

next year we do get a real and true MLS team, to be named Seattle Sounders FC. season tickets are on sale now, we're getting them.

trevor's coach actually just stepped down from the sounders, he is coaching 3 teams and didn't have the time or $ to play for them anymore. he is really good tho, and the kids love him.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
