Last Sunday I got the opportunity to visit an Eagles game. By now, I´ve been pulled into sports completely, so I was more than happy to go!!
The fun starts a few hours before the game, when people start Tailgating: fans park their SUVs on a huge parking lot, open their trunk, get a barbeque and the fun begins. Many of them don´t even have a ticket - they´ll just hang out and listen to the radio!
Once you walk into the stadium you´ll be completely overwhelmed - 70.000 people are cheering for the team. After the anthem the players walk onto the field, supported by cheerleaders and loud firework. Our seats were in between many die-hard fans, who listened to the radio during the game and created some great entertainment in the breaks!
A few weeks ago, I visited a sport that is not that popular - but it was fun to see (again, thanks to tailgating): Polo! Although I didn´t have high expectations, it was a lot of fun... Especially to see how horses are being transported (see the last picture!) :)
