We had an epic date on Saturday that lasted from just before 5 pm until after midnight. It was great spending so much time with N. His department at work took us to dinner and then to a Real Salt Lake game. I hadn't ever been to a professional soccer game before but I surprised by how much fun it was. Apparently our team is pretty good--they won 2-0 and it was their 21st home win in a row.
During the game the section we were sitting in won free Whoppers from Burger King and everyone got these pom-poms with coupons on the handles. E has been having fun shaking our around the house. I think E would have enjoyed the game but probably isn't old enough to last through the whole thing. If we're still living here in a couple of years it would be fun to take him.
There are several different fan groups that sit in the south end of the stadium. Two of them have drum lines that drum and chant during the ENTIRE GAME. We were sitting a little close so it was kind of loud but I sort of liked it. It made me nostalgic about playing drums in the pep band during high school games. And it definitely added an upbeat feel to the game. Plus I have to admire the endurance of anyone who can drum and cheer for two hours straight.
After the game N and I realized that if we hustled across the street we could make it to a showing of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. I was kind of tired by this point but really liked the movie. I liked the graphic novels it's based on and I think they did a good job adapting it for the screen. I recommend seeing it; it's a lot of fun.
The weekend went by in a bit of a blur and now today I'm rushing around getting ready to take E and go visit my family in WA. I'm looking forward to catching up on some sleep, playing with my mom's dog's litter of Maltese puppies, and eating loads of delicious Korean food.
