I finally went to watch an English Premier league soccer game: Everton vs Coventry City. It was a preseason game and what was called a friendly game (basically what that means is that after a player has played so many games with a team, they have a friendly game where part or all of the procedes from the game are given to the player!!!! as if they need it with their multimillion dollar contracts!!) it was fun, not many people at the game, there were more Everton fans that drove an hour and a half to support their team (including us!)!! It was looking good until the end.....
