Mustard on My Fries

It is SO easy to skip lifting...and swimming.  Especially if the alternative is to hang out with your favorite people on earth and watch schweaty men play soccer.


My AWESOME family ventured to Kansas City's new LIVESTRONG Sporting Stadium, to watch our MLS Soccer team KC Sporting take on the Colorado Rapids.  We use to go to soccer games all the time when our team was the Wizards, but honestly it had been several years since I had been to a game.  I think the last one I went to was when that 15 year old superstar's first year playing, and Logan and I went to Arrowhead to watch him play...not our own team.  Shame.

 

I love the atmosphere of soccer games.  Soccer SuperFANS are unreal, they call themselves couldron's and there are some pretty elite ones here in Kansas City, but I am sure they are nothing like some in other countries.  My sister is big into soccer, and is actually going to be playing at the Colegiate level so even though I have been around the sport my whole life, and even use to play she explained the whole game to me.  I was really more interested in calling dibs on the cuties, and finding them on twitter.


Couldron going crazy after the game!
I was totally into the cute litle soccer scarfs! I want.  Apparently teams make them, and couldrons have them-it's like sporting your gangs colors.  The stadium had bars up for people to leave their colors hanging, it was really cool.  Anyone could just walk up and hang their scarf there if they wanted.  So why couldn't I just walk up and borrow one?  I SWEAR I will bring it back, I just wanna be one of the dudes for the game!


Bee tee dubs, we took the members club route.  They had $2 beers! Do you hear me??! $2 BEERS!! The price for the hotdogs made up for the difference, but who can resist a stadium hot dog really?  A premium beef one at that.  Load it up with ketchup, mustard and relish and you'll get a few servings of veggies right??



The game ending up being a 1:1 tie, but it was still amazing. Honestly, the reffing sucked and Colorado were kinda meanies...and really good actors. Regardless of the outcome though, we had such a super fun time! I wanna go back...I wanna wear a scarf and drink beer...I wanna bang on a drum and know all the chants. I wanna be a SOCCER SUPER FAN! 


I love my mom, she's the world's finest.  Now, I PROMISE to get my work out in today and not eat too much junk....ha sike! But not about the work out part, I will do that...I think...no I will.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO A MAJOR LEAGUE SOCCER GAME?

The only major league soccer games I've been to are the Kansas City Wizards (BTW, when did they change their name?!) Can you tell I'm outta the loop? My hubs loves soccer - he and his brother played growing up [so did I, but I wasn't near as good ;)], so I bought him some tickets for his birthday a couple years in a row. I still get a call from them every year asking if I want more and I was just thinking this spring that it'd be fun....if only Kansas City weren't on the other side of the state! Is the new stadium done yet?

Oh, and those super soccer fans are a riot :)

You know, one thing I've always wanted to do was go to a MLS game, especially because the tickets (up here in Boston) are so much cheaper than the other sports! Your pictures made it look like a good time, and made me want to go!

The last sporting event I went to was a Red Sox game back in April. It loads of fun, I love going to sporting events!

@Kate: Go WIZARDS!! Remember Tony Meola?! We went without a team for a year, and this year we are KC Sporting. Chad Ochocinco tried out for our team! The new stadium is done, and is pictured above-it's AWESOME!! If you come up here, i'll buy a $2 beer.

@MARIE: GO! They are soooo much fun! Maybe more fun then baseball..who knows!

I have not been to a major league soccer game which is weird considering I love soccer and played it for years.

I love ketchup & onion on my hot dogs.

I went to the MN Twins game on Monday the 4th and it was like 90 degrees out and we had seats in the full sun the entire 9 innings. I was soaked! It was fun but beers are $7.25 so that is a bummer.
