I was fortunate or not fortunate to see my first live Portuguese league game this past Sunday at Alvalade. Sporting played terribly, but still managed to win. It was just nice to see the game with my brother and father live in the socios section. Also I travelled throughout Portugal this summer from Algarve all the way to Porto and must say the Antas Stadium is a disgrace. What a lousy looking stadium. Hopefully they can do better with the knew one, but they better get rolling. The new constructions in Sporting and Beira-Mar look very well on there way. Benfica looked like they were a bit behind, but Porto has alot of catching up to do. After 12 years of not going to Portugal, IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE AGAIN. Hope to be back in 2004 or 2005.
