Stanford stadium gets world class soccer

Original post made by Sports fan on Jul 13, 2007

There is a world class soccer game at Stanford on Saturday, albeit a friendly with nothing at stake. British premier league club, Chelsea, plays Mexican team Club America. Chelsea leave Stanford to continue their preseason tour, travelling to LA to play the Galaxy and David Beckham's first US game.

How about world class man/dog and woman/dog frisbee? Or even, dare I say, man/woman frisbee?
There needs to be something for excitement.

Walter, if you want your frisbee, go for it.

As for me, I will stick to soccer thank you.

Please keep it up Walter, I really enjoy you!

Great game, good fun.

Unfortunately, for my family, we obeyed the instructions not to take cans, glass bottles, or alcohol with us and ended up having our plastic water bottles confiscated at the gate so we had to buy inflated price water inside. It was a shame that the powers that be could not have confiscated all the fire crackers that were let off during the game by the Club America fans. This was surely much more dangerous than my sealed water bottles.

Great game and I would love to see more

I hope the PA Weekly sports writers were there and write up the game. I saw one of the local news channels included it in their round up with interviews of the Chelsea players. Please show that we love soccer here and want to see more.

I have a suggestion for Stanford. Why not have a park and ride parking lot near 101, say at Edgewood Plaza, on game days and shuttle fans on Marguerites up Embarcardo. This would need to be well publicised in advance but it should help both local traffic and parking as well as get the fans where they need to be without causing traffic chaos.
