Back in July when I was here in the States without Xianyi, I was surfing around the web when I noticed that David Beckham would be making his New York debut in August. Mom and I thought it would be pretty cool to attend the game, so we bought tickets on the spot!
To fill out our foursome (they sell tickets in four-packs) we invited our good friend Kateri. Mom pulled out an old “tailgating backpack” from our old Army football days and we loaded it up with sandwiches, cheese and crackers, beer and wine and had ourselves a fabulous picnic behind in the lot at Giants Stadium. Oh, and the game was pretty good, too. Our New York Red Bulls beat Beckham’s LA Galaxy in a high-scoring 5-4 match.
