transfixed

--------------------------

Football! It's a religion of it's own. True fans most probably have a whole different set of chemicals that flow in their brains which are no where to be found in anyone who is not a fan of football. Like they say, "Every four years, a ball does the impossible."

 

The bar had an energy that was (proportionally) equal to that of a packed stadium. Chants of Ole, Ole, Ole! and Ar-GEN-TINA! were defeaning but very amusing to sing along with. Not being from Argentina, I can NEVER connect with these people emotionally but I can semi-understand their super-hyper-excitement as I'm the same way watching my countrymen play cricket. The end of the quarter, semi or full Final games will make these fans cry regardless of what the outcome is, they could be happy or sad tears...

 

Most of the more-exciting emotive frames were captured on my 35mm film camera, so you'll have to wait till I develop the rolls on Monday. Stand by...
