Countdown to Kickoff

Many European teams create clever patters in the stands using different colored seats, Arena AufSchalke being no exception. An advantage to being among the first in the stadium is you get a chance to appreciate the layout. In case you are wondering, the noise is from the broadcast of the Australia-Japan game which is being shown on the video board.

I guess it was a good thing that we got to the stadium so early and avoided the large crowds, but it did bring down our pre-game excitement a little bit. We spent a lot of time sitting around watching the exciting Austrailia victory over Japan and thought of our Aussie friends from the airport. The beer was starting to wear off by kickoff, and it was very hot inside the stadium.
