At a Soccer Game in Milan

Andrew, Lauren, and I wanted to go to a soccer game in Italy, so we chose to go to the biggest soccer-city in the country: Milan.


We could have gone to an Inter game or an AC Milan game and since my host family all HATE Inter (my host mother threatened to beat me with a rolling pin and make me eat outside with the cat if I were an Inter fan), we of course had to go to the Milan game.

It was a great game: Milan won, Pato scored twice, Lauren drooled over David Beckham. But the Milan fans were even more entertaining than the game. They were absolutely the craziest sports fans I’ve ever seen. This is what American sports should be!
