men chase a ball into a massive net and nothing more.
team was playing against Adelaide United, I jumped at the chance!
As international students, we were invited to a pre-party to meet some members of the team, indulge in finger foods and win prizes.
was so we had a better chance of getting noticed!
effective ways to make up the lack of height.
But then there was an even bigger prize, well, two actually!
Two autographed footballs to be given away!
'who can spin the ball the longest on yer finger' face off!
although I haven't spun a ball on my finger in like 5 years.
Challengers 1 and 2
They were given 30 seconds to practice. In that time, the dude on the right spun the ball so hard that it flew towards the face of a member of the audience!
So I'm pretty sure you can tell who won!
Thus I found myself taking up the challenge..
Was so determined to win that I didn't notice that my opponent was kinda cute. Hehe!
The determination paid off because... I WON!
I mean, look at that! How can I not win?
(Okay... I outlasted the guy by a second or so. Heh. But a win is a win!)
But enough about me, me, me!
Back to the game!!
It was a cold night so I was freezing my butt off!
It got a bit boring as no one was getting any goals.
With about 20 minutes left in the game, Adelaide United scored!
The game ended 1-0!
The Korean players (Pohang Steelers)!
Sadly, I did not spot any superbly good-looking Korean boy or player.
But I can't complain too much! I won an autographed football after all!

Hands up if you have to plaster a smile on whenever someone takes your photo?!
And when they take ages to press the damm button, you feel like a grinning idiot.
I don't know about you but sometimes I feel my lips quiver from trying to hold a smile.
When they do snap the pic, you close your eyes! (Well, I do that often anyway)
The camera-person would throw a hissy-fit and make you go through the horrible ordeal again!
Anyway, Canon has come up with the idea of a 'smile detection' function in their cameras!
No more waiting for the camera-person to snap a pic!!
It'll be much easier to self-indulge in your vanity (or in order words: cam-whore) too!
Just set the camera down somewhere, take your time posing and when you're satisfied with your pose, just smile! :D
Woo hoo!! No more waiting for the timer to go off!
And onto something completely unrelated:
Remember that Maroon 5 song 'She will be loved'? The one with the lyrics of "look for the girl with the broken smile"
Sharon asked me once how the smile would look like. She'd try to do a broken smile.
Of course, she failed.
Anyway, I don't know about you but I picture a girl smiling with broken teeth instead.
