I Love Soccer Part 3

Pack 6

Hulk (silver) Brazilian Forward FC Zemit (now with Shanghai SIPG)

Production Line (silver) Oribe Peralta stiker Club America

Production Line-22 Goals in 2014-15

Another player we saw play in the Copa America. We got a sense of what it is like to watch the Mexican national team in person. Our sense is we never want to see them again-now this was a shocking experience-profanities being yelled, homophobic crap, and beer being thrown. This was a real bummer as my wife is Mexican-American and as long as we have been watching soccer we have wanted to see the Mexican national team. But alas never again!

Two consecutive packs with Real players.

Two German nationals team members in the pack. I root for several national teams; USA, then based on my ethnic background-England, Wales, Scotland, Germany, Italy, and Spain. So it was nice to see these two players come out of packs.

Bummer is that we were so looking forward to see him at; you guessed it, the Copa. However, he was hurt the week before-and the crowd would see him on the big screen and go crazy with chants of Messi, Messi-but he didn’t take the field. So now we may never see him.

  2. Who were being the obnoxious fans when you saw Mexico? I'm guessing a bunch of Americans against Mexico, but I'm not sure.

    I saw Club America take on AC Milan here in Atlanta back in 2009. That was a fun experience, definitely!
