Football (soccer)

I went to my first Premiership Football game on Sunday. The two teams playing were West Ham United and Tottenham. The British take football very seriously and are rabid supporters of their teams. My seat ended up being right in the lower section on the corner between West Ham and Tottenham fans. They really went at it at times. In order to maintain the peace, there was a large quantity of police and security personnel stationed especially in this section. Any time a goal was scored, everyone went nuts jumping around and began chanting, singing, and taunting the other team's fans. It was a really neat experience that I'd recommend to anyone who is remotely interested in sports.
