I went to my first professional soccer game ever, a terrific match between Torino and AS Roma. To check out highlights, see http://youtube.com/watch?v=bKFPjKeCu3M . I will post pictures later, but let me tell you, it was a sweet experience. Totti is a local hero and didn't start the game but came in in the second half. Within 5 minutes of coming in (score 0-0 at that time), he had assisted on a goal and scored two more. It was insane how loud the stadium got and it was maybe a third of the way full. All in all, a great experience with Roma winning 4-0.
