But I LOVED being there. Good or bad, I enjoy the game. These guys were playing a game that wasn't played in this city 6 years ago! They had 18 guys who were playing this year for the first time! Even the lone American playing hadn't played football in the U.S. But, everyone was doing their best! As the saying goes, "Rome was't built in a day." And, American football will take some time to catch on. But, they are playing it. And I hope to go and watch again.
I was able to talk with a few players at halftime and they were excited, also, to be playing. They told me this team was started in one of the parks with 5 guys from Timisoara. They have come a long way from then and I salute them for their efforts. Go 89ers!!!
Here are a few pictures from the game today!
