Our seats we in the bleachers directly behind the FC Dallas fan club which included drums and chanting and flags waving and standing for the entire game. This was fun for a bit but Emily couldn't see too well and it was hot - we just wanted to sit. Here's what our section looked like after Dallas' first goal. It pretty much looked this way the whole game minus the fireworks.
At the end of the game the whole team came by the rowdy section and gave high 5s to the fans lined up along the wall. Emily raced down there and squeezed herself in to get the high 5s. She said that was cool except the players hands were sweaty.
Emily has a Kenny Cooper FC Dallas jersey from last summer. He doesn't play for the team right now as he is on loan to a European team. But, he is a local boy (Jesuit grad) and the guy who teaches my bootcamp class is Cooper's friend from high school. He said he would get Emily an autograph the next time he sees him. She would be so excited! I ended up buying tickets to Sunday's game as we were leaving the stadium so that Emily could go again and Marcy could get to a game. Should have gone earlier in the summer as well.
