USA vs Mexico

Abraham is a soccer LOVER! Several months ago, he bought himself, Jen, Susannah, and me tickets to the USA vs Mexico soccer game. Well, the game was on February 6th. It was a great time! I can't say that I've ever really watched a game of soccer. I've played maybe twice. Soccer wasn't the big thing in Joseph City. I was always terrified of getting kicked in the shins as well. Anyway, the game was very enjoyable and exciting! Thanks, Abraham!
One of the reasons we liked the game was this guy - Carlos Bocanegra - on the US team. Nice.
Here's a cool shot inside the stadium. We had great seats.

Here's a video Jen shot of the crowd doing the wave. It shows off the stadium really well too!One of the things I DON'T like about soccer is that you can end the game in a tie. That brought up a little dilemma that has something to do with a bet we made about the game. It will come up in a post or two.Here we are after the game! We were so excited to get our picture with a guy wearing a Luchador mask! He was sitting a couple of rows in front of us and we were hoping it would happen the whole game. Wish granted!

Here we are in the car leaving the game. Abraham has this song he sings in his "special" voice. I love it!

Here he prompts Susannah and she gives it a try. She's not quite as proficient . . . yet! She kept getting better and better that night. I found out later that there was a shooting at the Reliant Center after the game. That doesn't actually surprise me. There were some crazy people there - from both sides. Yikes!
