American football

this evening we went to watch a game! american football; harvard against brown (i think they are from providence). we were once before in the harvard stadium, when it was entirely empty and the weather very nice... as you can see here. but... today the weather was not that great. it was quite warm, but it had been raining all day already on and off. somehow i was convinced that the rain would stop during the game, and i just brought my crappy umbrella, not really thinking about the fact that i would have to sit in that outside stadium.... i sacrificed my time magazine that i had not quite finished yet to sit on (although that turned out to be useless), and shared my umbrella with tim.... rain rain rain.... of course i had no clue what they were doing on the field, just a lot of guys in tight pants running around every now and then... ah, and the cheerleaders, that was funny, never had seen them but on television! after 45 minutes, the rain finally stopped, only to return at full force a little later.... it got so bad that we did not stay till the end of the game (i think harvard won). while walking to some place to eat it got worse and worse, i was entirely soaked by the time we found some place....
ah well, it was fun. sort of.. :) although i guess it would have been a lot nicer without the rain...

I like the photo. I think you have to be a fanatic to watch it in the rain. To me it seems a ball of man crawling over each other. Never got the point of it, but to see it in US in a stadium with the cheerleaders must be fun (unless the rain).

Great picture!!!
Football can be fun once you get the rules. Which are quiet complicated... But since I have a football fanatic for a boyfriend... I kind of understand now. ;-)

I can assure you that U.S. citizenship doesn't make football less mystifying! Or baseball, for that matter.
