Adventure #15: Korea vs. Greece World Cup Style

I’ve never been much of a soccer fan. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever watched a soccer game. This past Saturday, Korea played Greece in a World Cup game. I was informed that Korea goes all out for soccer especially for World Cup games, so I had to join in the festivities. I ventured to a street fest, where thousands of fans gathered in front of 3 big screens to watch the game. There was a sea of red everywhere I looked on that day. Getting off the subway and out of the station was an accomplishment. It was packed. Despite some rain, I gathered with the other fans to watch the game. Everywhere you looked you saw red shirts, red ponchos, red devil ears (Red Devil is the Mascot), and even red afros. It was great. Happily, Korea won! The crowd went crazy. The camaraderie was like nothing I had never seen before.
