Here's a story right out of the freakin' twilight zone. I'm sitting in my driveway, minding my own business, and enjoying a cool adult beverage in anticipation of tonights DC United vs FC Dallas match on MLS Direct Kick. When my neighbor decides to stop by for a chat. I don't really socialize with the dude. But he is a marginal soccer fan. Has attended some MLS matches. And his kid plays on some prestigious travel team. So we have had the occasional conversation. Back in July he mentioned that he wanted to take his kid to a match at RFK to see United play LA Galaxy. They wanted to see Beckham. And he asked me for advice knowing that I go to United matches whenever possible. As a little background for those of you that don't know me, I am a United supporter, a proud member of La Barra Brava. And I live in Michigan. Anyway, I advised him to stay away from the Supporter's sections. Particularly if his kid planned on wearing the #10 Donovan LA Galaxy shirt. I explained to him that the supporters sections are for hard core DC supporters only. And they would not be well recieved at the tailgates or in the sections. I advised him to purchase tickets in the upper bowl. Of course he didn't take my advice. Instead, he purchased tickets on Ebay that put him in the 2nd row of one of the Barra sections. (He couldn't tell me which section) And of course when he showed up with his kid wearing the #10 Donovan LA Galaxy shirt they took a lot of abuse. Needless to say I got a half hour lecture on how "those people" are the scum of the earth, and how could I possibly associate with "them". He went on rail against the drunken, tattooed, unwashed, vulger, losers that should be banned from the stadium. At that point I politely reminded him that he just described most of my football and biker friends. And that he should piss off. (Note: I did not kick his ass because he brought his kids along.) My question to all of you is this. Who the hell sold their tickets on Ebay and allowed someone from the general public to end up in the Barra? And if anyone remembers this tool, do you have any good stories?
