If you’ve never watched an English Premier League soccer (football) game with real fans, then you’re missing out. It’s a sport I love, and I’ve always played, and often coached, but I had never really gotten into watching until I made some British friends. I’m now a Liverpool supporter, and it’s true when they say, “You’ll Never Walk Alone.” If you walk into a Liverpool bar wearing red, you will have instant friends.
Here’s a look at a game watching championship for one of the tournaments. After a regular time resulted in a tie, there was an overtime, and then penalty kicks. Resulting in alternating expressions of fear before each shot, and joy after each goal (for Liverpool) or miss (for Cardiff).
