K-League Soccer!

On Wednesday night, Aaron and I attended a K-League (AKA: Korea Professional Football League) FA Cup soccer game at nearby Gudeok Stadium between FC Seoul and Busan Transportation Corp FC. While the stadium seats close to 24,000 people, I'd wager that only about 300 people were at the game, most of which were foreigners living and teaching English in Busan!  Oh, and it was only 2,000 won (about $1.75!)

We plopped down in the foreigner section and had a great time laughing along with the guys behind us holding megaphones, chanting things like, "Give me a (insert alphabet letter)" ultimately spelling out "B-u-s-a-n  T-r-a-n-s-p-o-r-t-a-t-i-o-n  C-o-r-p-o-r-a-t-i-o-n  F-o-o-t-b-a-l-l  C-l-u-b."  It took nearly 10 minutes to spell the team's name!    
My 2nd favorite was to the tune of "If you're happy and you know it".  "If you ride the Busan subway, clap your hands!  If you ride the Busan subway, clap your hands!  If you ride the Busan subway, and ........... (Can't remember the words), If you ride the Busan subway, clap your hands!"  Funny because the Busan team is owned by the city's transportation department!

But, I'd have to say... my favorite part of the whole night was when the sky lit up in gorgeous tones of pink and purple, Aaron put his arm around me, and the first goal was scored!

Unfortunately, it was a goal for the other team!  FAIL... Better luck next time Busan!
