Kicky On!

November 27, 2007

Well tonight I went and saw what was to be the “biggest exhibition match in Australian sport history”. Yes I managed to get tickets to Sydney FC Vs Beckham’s Galaxy LA Galaxy. I found out that a friend of mine had member tickets but couldn’t go, so I took my opportunity. I finally know what it feels like to ‘be’ a member. Such features include escalators instead of stairs, carpet instead of concrete, and most importantly of all…padded seats. Our seats were high, but not in the nosebleed section. And we were basically on halfway, so it would be hard to get better seats. I could have been anywhere in the stadium and been satisfied, but thats probably cause I didn’t pay for the tickets. The game was quite entertaining, eight goals in all. But the best part of the night was Beckham’s free kick. I have seen countless free kick goals from the man but to see one in real life was honestly a true experience. The teams both had terrible defence, which was a plus because it ensured plenty of action, and goals. I always used to think that Becks was a bit of an overrated player, but after tonight’s display I know longer think that. He made about 95% of his passes, regardless of the close checking and he got through a fair work of defence. I have been to little sporting events in my time, but that is clearly the most memorable. Please come back Becks…

  1. yeah, last night’s game was heaps good. it has everything; lots of goals, a bit of biff (without pansy diving), a red card, beckham’s goal of course, and to top it all off we won.

    i’m pretty envious of your free entry, it would’ve been rad as to be there.

  2. “Please come back Becks…”. You sound like one of the throng of lovesick schoolgirls who’ve been following him around all week.

  3. I hate you. My timer didn’t work properly (namely I didn’t set it properly) so I didn’t see the game.
