Yesterday I saw Manchester United play AC Milan at Giants Stadium, and it was awesome. I hope they come back again next year! Even though they lost, it was still an exciting game (10 shootout kickers, how could it not be?!) and they should have won. I just wish I could have seen VAN THE MAN, and Cristiano Ronaldo, and Gabriel Heinze. That's okay, though. I saw Ryan! And Roy! And the fans sang the Ryan Giggs song! I wish Jocelyn was there to hear it. I sang along. I am definitely going to try to study abroad in England so I can watch games all the time. It's nice watching them on TV, when they're actually on the TV, but watching them live is amazing. I also got to see Cafu, and Nesta, and Maldini -- and they're crazy defenders. I tried to learn something by watching how the played. Then, after the game, we stopped at some rest area in New Jersey, and the place was swarmed with soccer fans. It was wonderful. I felt like I was in England again! Our seats for the game were ridiculous, they were right behind the net they used for the shootout. We were so close that I could see Tim Howard's dimples. It was awesome! I thouroughly enjoyed watching Giggs and Cafu battling on the left side, and it was good to see Alan Smith and all the other new players. Ryan and Roy looked so tan! Roy was amazing, he controlled the whole field. If there was any player I wish I could play like, it would probably be him. He really is the team. Yay!
I'm leaving in 20 days! I'm so nervous. Anyway, I'm having a going-away party this Saturday (as in August 7) at 1:00 at my house, and everyone's invited. Seriously, just go, because my mom is probably going to make a ton of food and I would feel bad if no one showed up. Just go for a little while even. It might suck, but then again, we might have a pool by then and you can swim.
