Soccer is not my thing. I remember being kind of good at it as a little kid — I made an all-star soccer team when I was 9 years old or something — but it just never stuck with me. I enjoy watching the World Cup, but I couldn’t get into the Euro and I remember writing some truly awful high school soccer stories when I was in Scranton. Our old friend Sam Borden loves the game, but it’s just never captured my attention.
Needless to say, I can’t tell you a thing about Chelsea FC or Paris Saint-Germain, but those teams are playing soccer at Yankee Stadium tomorrow night. For those of you who love soccer, it should be pretty cool. Here are some pictures of Yankee Stadium getting ready for the match.
Does it sound more knowledgeable for me to call it a match or a game? Does it matter?
