I’m one step closer to the just-invented-in-my-head goal of seeing a live sport event on 10% of the days of 2008. Nineteen baseball games, eight soccer games, two softball games, and one each of bullfighting (yes, I know), lucha libre, horse racing, and American football. Can any Belgians suggest any weird sporting events going on in your country in the next few weeks?
So, that 33rd sporting event was seeing Crystal Palace v. Nottingham Forest last night. I went with my pals Steve and Mark – both Forest fans – and it was the first time I’ve been part of a big throng of away fans at an English football match. And it was fun. An impressive amount of people there, too, considering it was a midweek evening game. Forest won 2-1. Hurrah for them.
