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.
