It was so different live than it is on tv. On tv the stadium looks enormous and it all seems so untouchable. Being there in person takes away the mystique but it also adds the element of being able to really feel the momentum on the court and seeing how hard they hit the ball. I was just sitting there the whole time thinking - I can't believe Stan's right there
... It brings the realization that he's just a regular person but also the excitement of seeing things first hand.
I have the same feeling even though I was only watching an exhibition match. I was watching JohnnyMac/Borg and Fed/Blake at that time. My first thought was: the ball was fast. People keep saying on tv, everything was flatten so as to squeeze into the tv and the ball looks very slow, I didn't believe that until I saw that in person. Blake was awesome even in exhibition matches. I am sure he would be a lot more impressive in the DC tie. You are so lucky

Still, we don't take it too far though. Just a little light piss taking. We've yet to have a MAJOR argument over footie. We all respect who the other supports.
That was the time when I enjoyed watching football most. We never have any major argument, the most heated argument is always over whether David Beckhamis hot or not- and still is. My sister is crazy over him and keeps on talking about him nonstop. It can get quite annoying
I have no personal dislike over Dave, if there's any, it's all the fault of my sister
. I dun see my uncles as often now, but every time I saw them, they greet me by saying "liverpool sucks
