While eating and drinking in the Stadium Club the Chivas girls walk around, take pictures with fans, and give out free Chiva Souveniers. Epsecially if you are drinking Chivas. We got all kinds of stuff. It was a fun night!
I have never been a big soccer fan. I dont know why, but i just never got too into it. As you can see from my pictures i am more of a basketball, football, baseball fan. But when our good friends Manny and Marisela invited us to go to a Galaxy vs Chivas game I was really excited. I had never been to a professional soccer game and I wanted to check it out.
Needless to say, i had a great time. It didnt matter who one to me but the game was good.
We also had a good dinner and drinks at the stadium club. It you can get in there, have a Kobe Burger. Its really good and inexpensive.
I cant wait to go to my next soccer game.
