With World Cup 2010 in progress right now in South Africa I decided to dig up our photos from the 1994 World Cup in the U.S.A. The kids and I flew down to Southern California and stayed with my parents for the duration of World Cup. Josh was able to get a ticket package for the Rose Bowl venue and we were able to buy 2 tickets for the Brazil vs. Cameroon game in San Jose at Stanford. Dan and I traveled to Stanford to see that very colorful game.
This is Alexi Lalas with Josh and Dan. We found the hotel where the U.S.A. team was staying and training. Josh and Dan got every players signature on the team poster. They also managed to get all the coaches signatures but one. The players were all friendly and willing to talk to the boys and sign autographs. What an exciting and fun experience for Josh and Dan and me!
Dan at Stanford. We found a shop that had a Brazilian flag and bought it for the game. Brazil brings a party atmosphere to soccer games that’s hard to beat.
Participating in this historical event was a thrill for our family.
1994 was the first time the U.S.A. hosted World Cup. We are hoping the U.S.A. is chosen for the 2018 World Cup. 2014 will be hosted by Brazil. So are any of you watching World Cup 2010?
Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.
