Life List #30. Attend a DC United game.

DC United 0 - New England Revolution 1

I have lived in DC for 11 years, and until last month, DC United was the only major sports team in the DC area that I had never attended a single game of. Thankfully we have now rectified that situation.

ready for the game

On a very hot Wednesday in July, we attend our first soccer game in DC. It was great – the Women’s World Cup had just ended, so we were in a total soccer mood. Sadly DC United didn’t win, but that hardly dampened our enjoyment.

the rowdy side

It was great to watch the soccer, but my favorite part of the game was the fans. I had no idea that DC United had such rabid fans – they drummed, sang songs, and waved huge flags (not unlike soccer fans in Germany where I last attended a professional soccer match at the ripe old age of 17). It was so much fun.

We are already plotting attending another game in September – when the weather will hopefully be a little cooler!
