DT has been to his first professional sports game! We went to see the SJ Earthquakes play the LA Galaxy (including Beckham) Saturday night.
1. Just because Oakland is usually only 45 min - 1 hour from SJ, 1-1/2 hours will not be enough time to get to a soccer game featuring David Beckham.
2. 40,000 people will also be driving up from San Jose at the same time.
3. Soccer games are very short. Missing the first half and then needing to wait in line for food only leaves 30 minutes of game time (there are no time outs to slow it down).
4. If you miss the ice cream man going by with only 4 minutes left, you will have to drive to the landmark Fentons Creamery to appease your 3 year old. Ok, and his mom.
This is the smallest size...
It was still fun and we plan to go to another game. Probably the next time the Galaxy is in time... only we plan to go up quite early and tailgate! It turns out our neighbors were also went to the game and they left even a little later than us. It was their highest attendance ever, so no one was really expecting the crowd/traffic.
