Stanford vs Cal (Berkeley)

Så igår var jag och Eric på en (American) Football match. Det var mellan Stanford och Berkeley (två stora konkurrenter=två stora colleges här omkring). 50,000 fans var på plats och det var inte svårt att komma i stämning (även om jag inte nånsin har följt det eller ngt). Men Amerikansk fotboll är verkligen så amerikansk. Sån stereotypical grej, jag tänker amerianska pappar som sitter hemma på söndagar/måndagar och skriker framför tv:n osv haha.
Iaf, smockat med folk var det och vi letade parkering ett bra tag (och då var vi ändå där typ 2-3 timmar matchen började.)
Vi kom iaf dit och vi satt mitt i smeten mellan röda och blåa fans. Som tur var hade jag ju en amerikanare med mig som kunde förklara alla regler för mig haha... så jag fattade iaf det basica som man måste veta för att ens tycka det är spännande- och det var det tusan ! Tyvärr förlorade Stanford, men så är det.
Tiger Woods var också där och höll ett kort tal i pausen.
Idag vare chill i Palo Alto som gällde, och det slutade med att jag en snubbe hängde inne på ett Art Gallery och snackade allt mellan The Kinks, farms in Dublin och studera. Yes. Sånt gillar vi :P... ikväll begär jag mig in till SF för att spana bra band- vilket det inte vart i fredagskväll.

Translation:
So me and Eric went to an (American) Football game yesterday. It was between the big rivals Stanford and Berkeley (two big colleges around here). 50,000 fans were there and it was not hard to get in the mood and spirit of it all even though I haven't ever followed it or anything before. But Football is such an American stereotypical thing, I'm thinking American dads in front of the TV on Sunday/Monday nights screaming at the TV and stuff haha.
Anyhow, it was super crowded and we circled the campus forever to finally find a parking spot (and still we left like 2-3 hours prior to the start of the game.)
We managed to find a place, got in and found out seats in the middle of all the Red and Blue fans. I was lucky to have an American along with me to explain all the rules and stuffso I was at least able to get the hang of it, and I even found it really exciting ! Unfortunately, Stanford lost, but what can you do .... But yea, Eric did a great job helping me haha !
Tiger Woods was there too, and held a speech in the break.
Today was all about chilling in Palo Alto which ended up with me hanging in an art gallery with this dude and we talked about everything from The Kinks to studying to the farms in Dublin haha...Victoria likes.
Later on tonight, I'll be going to SF to watch some sweet bands play- which I did not do on Fri night.

Ha, American football goes straight over my head. I should probably make an effort to understand. Looks like a fun time regardless :)
