Once back from Valencia on Sunday, a huge group from Purdue went to a fútbol game…my first one! It was the veterans of Real Madrid and Manchester but awesome just the same. I attempted to learn some of the rules but really just enjoyed watching. But, people in Spain seem to be very serious about their fútbol…I’ve gotten this impression from talking to people outside of the game too. But, it was hilarious, pretty sure we set a record for the number of times the wave went around the stadium…had to of been at least 10 times. Interesting fact: they do not serve any alcohol in the stadium. You can either get alcohol-free beer or bring alcohol in but cannot order it anywhere inside. Pretty sure they do this to prevent riots from happening…like I said, serious about their fútbol. lol.
