there's a strange feeling going through my body right now. i'm not sure i've felt it before -- at least in this situation.
i'm going to see manchester united (aka "the yankees of association football") today at 黄龙 sports stadium, as they slaughter the local hangzhou football team. i've always enjoyed, to a degree, going to pubs with friends and watching a game on tv while we drink delicious booze and i make cracks at the sport. but i've never been really into sports (ever since i had to actually try out for high school baseball).
now, though, i'm getting ready to go to see this game with daisy, and we're meeting a friend of mine for drinks before. it's strange -- i feel very energized, very awake. i think the right word to describe it is "excited".
yes, that's right. i'm really excited to go see this game. i have no idea who's on what team, the name of the guy that was just sold for $800m (or something), or even why the association football coaches don't look like they're either coming from the gym or are just too lazy to get dressed like in american football. but i'm excited.
hopefully i'll get some good photos. we're sitting first row, back right corner of the north goal.
yay for sports!
