FIFA - Japan v Camaroon


With all the bribery scandals in the news, it was a nice break to actually watch the atheletes! ...and to finally see the inside of the stadium, with its new roof! Nice place!



Our seats: can you spot Yuko? Look under the "IF" of FIFA, among the grey seats...



maybe I could get closer... I noticed that there was a lot of empty space down there on this huge green area, they certainly didn't need all of it, did they?



It is a nice stadium, with a roof that can be opened. That's Yuko over by the blue FIFA sign on the right...



Hmm. Looks like a good place for camera people!



Maybe the players will even let me have one of the balls...



Well, they didn't seem to be in the mood for sharing, after all... Actually, they didn't seem to like those balls. they kept kicking them away...



That screen in the center is huge... I think I heard Yuko calling me, must be time to go back to my assigned seat...



The passage ways were crowded. The food was expensive, the line-ups very long...



Some of the fans were more equal than others...



Can't do sports in Canada without a Zamboni, can we... They watered the artificial turf. ...hmmm, maybe a botany lesson is in order here...
