I just uploaded a bunch of photos. You can access them from the slideshow on the righthand panel or you can go to this link. http://picasaweb.google.es/mford07/ I added some commentary but if you have any questions about the pictures let me know for sure.
Today I went to a Real Oviedo Football game (soccer). They're third division and not too good at that but they used to be first division in the early nineties. For this reason, they have a stadium that seats about 30K and it fills up maybe 15%-20% or so. They played Nalón (another team from Asturias) and tied 0-0.
I went with my friends from Belgium and Germany and they proceeded to inform me about futbol in their countries. They know it's not very popular in the States and were surprised to find out that I know all the rules. They say most americans can't even spot offsides but I told them I used to referee kids soccer.
One of my friends really likes the Barcelona football club so we´re probably going to go to Barcelona one weekend here soon to see them play. Most people here in Spain choose sides over whether they like Real Madrid or Barca (Barcelona) more. Real Madrid is better I think in the standings and as far as I also am looking forward to seeing Gijón play because they´re division one and not too far from Oviedo. They´re the only Div. 1 team in Asturias I think...
