    AS Roma v Juventus

    May 12 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Doug has added to his "collection" of UK/EU soccer games with a home game at Roma vs Serie A Champions Juventus. The atmosphere was incredible -- you could almost feel the ground shaking as you walked up to the stadium. The crowd, was, as expected, very alive, but what a tough crowd. Every touch of the ball by CR7 raised a deafening chorus of boos and jeers. And Roma was not sharp in their passing and the boos started building halfway through the game with every intercepted pas by Juve. A very exciting game by two very talented teams, and a 79' goal by Roma and another in injury time left the crowd ecstatic. Italian "efficiency" with transit meant Doug did not get home for 2.5 hours, though!Read more

    Jetzt erst mal ein bisschen Kultur

    September 26, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 20 °C

    Nach den ganzen Pilgerkirchen gestern und heute der Papstaudienz, Kolosseum und dem Forum Romanum gönne ich mir heute Abend etwas gepflegtere Kultur.
    Bin daher auf dem Weg ins Olympia Stadion und schaue mir da heute Abend (21:00 Uhr) das Spiel AS Rom gegen Frosione an. Auf welcher Seite ich bin, also welches Team ich dann später letztendlich anfeuern werde, weiß ich noch nicht. Aber ich bin ja flexibel und freu mich einfach auf das Spiel.

    Nach dem Forum Romanum war ich erst mal ziemlich platt. Hatte bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt weder was gegessen, noch getrunken. Ist bei den ganzen Sachen irgendwie untergegangen und war auch nicht so schlimm. Nur merkte ich es dann doch ein wenig und fuhr wieder ins Zentrum, wo ich mich mit Pizza und indischem Essen stärken konnte. Danach war ich kurz im Hotel und legte mich für eine Stunde hin. Jetzt ist mein Akku wieder voll und ich eben auf dem Weg ins Stadion.

    Hab mir doch noch auf die schnelle ein Trikot geholt. Natürlich nach dem ich sicher war, dass ich auf der richtigen Seite sitze. Kenne den Spieler nicht den ich mir ausgesucht habe, aber dachte mir:
    Der Name ist Programm :-)

    Halbzeit! 3:0 für Rom. Gutes Spiel, schönes Stadion und eine tolle Atmosphäre. Natürlich nicht so gut wie in Bochum. Dafür sitzt man leider durch die Laufbahnen ein wenig zu weit weg und das Stadion ist zu groß damit eine gemeinsame, übergreifende Stimmung (Fangesang ) aufkommen könnte. Aber jede Kurve/Ecke im Stadion feuert das Team für sich und eigenständig an und das ist auch nicht schlecht und teilweise auch sehr laut.

    Spielende 4:0. Die zweite Halbzeit war weniger spektakulär, aber insgesamt war es ein schöner Abschluss vom heutigen Tag.

    The Lumineers

    July 10, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Well our bus misadventures continued tonight. We took the bus by our apartment, and that was easy enough. However, when we arrived at Termini Station for our transfer, bus 910 was nowhere to be found. It was supposed to come every 13 minutes, but we waited almost 40 and no bus. We weren't the only ones waiting though, and the crowd grew and grew and so by the time it showed up, the bus was completely packed! We only had to ride for 6 stops, but was it ever hot and sweaty for that 20 minutes!

    We finally arrived at the venue, which is a really cool outdoor amphitheater. They had "food trucks" (mobile food booths?) and so we got in line to get supper before going into the amphitheater. We chose the vendor with the most interesting menu. Brad and I got octopus sandwiches with sautéed broccoli greens and mozzarella that was so runny she had to smear it on. Evan played it safe with a burrata and tomato panini. We were able to eat our sandwiches while we stood in line to get into the amphitheater.

    After a detour to the washroom, we found out seats in the balcony level. I don't have any good pictures to show how the venue was set up, but there are basically two levels - the floor and the balcony. We had great seats and quickly got settled before the band started.

    The Lumineers came on around 9:45 and were incredible! The crowd was really into them and sang along to many songs. They even did two songs completely unplugged and had the crowd sing "Hey! Ho!" with them, which was really cool! They probably played for 90 minutes, which included an encore. The three of us had a great time singing, clapping and dancing along as knew almost every song they played! It was a Father's Day gift to Brad that we all enjoyed!

    After the concert, we were able to take two buses to get home. With songs still buzzing in our ears, we all fell into bed around 1 am. A long day, but one we are sure to remember for a long time!
