last night, i ventured to new jersey to watch the ny/nj metrostars (i think they actually got rid of the ny/nj part) take on the chinese national team in an exhibition match at giants stadium. we (sas, tom, and their friends, mike and amanda) arrived quite late to the match, so we missed the whole first half. ny/nj is in the middle of their major league soccer season, so many of the good players came out after the first half to give some younger players some game time. it was a cool night, and the attendance was low, really low. low like 7,611 low (capacity of giants stadium is 77,716). it seemed like 80% of the crowd was chinese, which makes sense, because who else would want to watch the chinese national team take on the metrostars. the metrostars won the game 2-1, you can read the recap here.
game action from last night. look at all those fans disguised as red seats. what a tribute to china's colors.
sas, amanda - apparently, sas loves popcorn. note amanda's reactions as well.
