Seeing Stars

We went to the first Colorado Rapids game of the season as a mulit-stake singles activity. They were playing the LA galaxy. It just so happens that David Beckham plays for that team. I am not going to lie, I was excited to see him. They had a raffle before the game to let people go on the field to watch them warm up. I had a dream about 5 days earlier that I was going to be chosen to be on the field. After that I was totally convinced I was going to win. Well I did. It was really cool to watch the players warm up and yes we were closer to the boys. I know most of you don't know much about soccer but while we were down there we saw many soccer stars that have played for the USA national team.

Landon Donovan

We saw Coby Jones on the sideline. I think he is a trainer now.

Alexi Lalas is the President and General Manager of the Galaxy. I almost didn't recognize him. He looks a lot better now.

And yes, David Beckham.

Here they are warming up. You can hear everyone yelling for Beckham.

Despite all the big names and large Galaxy salaries we beat them 4-0. It was a great game. I forgot how much I love soccer. I got the first goal on video.

Donovan is one of my favourite players :)
And I like Beckham too, too bad he's not playing for the Real Madrid anymore :/
