I was cheering for the Hurricane's because I like orange juice and Stuart was cheering for the Titan's because they've hardly lost a game. I bet you can guess who was winning 20-6 when we left in the third quarter? Oh yes, my beloved Oranges!
We got in for the start of the national anthem which really excited me. I suppose I'm still learning how to be American because I couldn't work out what/where everyone was looking during the song. Danielle and Stuart both very kindly/mockingly pointed out the little American flag afterwards.
They don't do kick-off's here because apparently people get hurt (?) It's football but... people... get hurt... I don't get it. I was a little disappointed because I actually like seeing people get hurt whilst playing sports. I think I was expecting it to be more like rugby. I think American football is perhaps a little sissy-ish. Disagree with me and I'll punch you in the throat. :oDStuart was good at explaining it all to me but for a long time I didn't understand who was throwing the banana's... it was actually the referee's yellow card thingy. It started bugging me after a bit and I actually asked Stuart why they didn't stop the banana throwing.
There wasn't a marching band so we made our own. Actually we did leave early and so help me there better not be a marching band! That was something I was REALLY looking forward to. On owr way out we made our own. I was playing trumpbone because I actually used to really play it and Danielle, bless her was playing something that I couldn't guess what it was from the sounds she was making...
