Did I ever tell you how much I don't like football? I know I did. So how I end up having to drive football supporters and even watching football matches I don't know. But I did last night again.
As it says in the title it was the big game last night as well. For the supporters we were driving to the game anyway. One of the better amateur teams in the Netherlands was taking over 2000 supporters with them to fight the best professional team of the Netherlands (right now): PSV. To them it was probably a minor game, but even that didn't dampen the spirits of SV Spakenburg. They were going to win!!!!
Well, the game started and it very quickly became apparent that if SV Spakenburg were going to win, they would need some football intervention from Pele to Maradona, from Johan Cruyff to David Beckham. Because the only side they were playing on was their own, defending. I must say though, they managed to keep PSV off until the last ten seconds of the first half. They scored and it was 1-0 to PSV.
The second half wasn't much better and after the second goal, you could see some desperation creep in for SV Spakenburg. Whenever they got the ball away from PSV, they would try and shoot it to one of their own and only managed that about 5% of the time. In the end, the score was 3-0 for PSV and they are through to the next round.
I've got one question running through my head now: why, if I don't like football, do I always end up in the stadium watching the game??
