Pro soccer in Dallas

March 20, 2011 Leave a comment

True, profesional soccer is not a mainstay sport in the USA, but it is increasing in popularity.   Daughter Tanya, who plays indoor soccer n a ladies team, got us extra tickets to attend the FC Dallas opening match agains the Chicago Fire.  Had a nice dinner (loud fans!) and a short stroll to the stadium.

The stadium is sponsored by Pizza Hut.  It is a new stadium, well done, very fan friendly.  There was a reasonably large crowd, cheering on the local team.  Very upset when a favorite layer was red carded and kicked from the game.   Dallas survived to a 1 – 1 tie.

We had a lot o fun and may even go back to next weeks game.

Waiting for our drinks, and food....

We were treated to a very nice moonrise over the stadium

 

Ladies Indoor Soccer League

Went to oldest daughter’s (Tanya) Ladies Indoor Soccer League last night.  These ladies played fast and hard, and obviously had a great time.  We did too, in the stands, rooting her team on.  They lost, 4 – 3, but you know the saying: “its not who wins or loses, it’s how you play the game”.  Yeah, right, try telling that to the ladies on the floor….
