Attend World Cup Qualifier Match de Foot. Check.

Oh my goshhhh. The Stade de France is AMAZING.

Seriously though. I just saw France beat Austria (3-1) in a World Cup qualifier in this place.  It’s like a different world in here where French people are happy and excited and unified and playful and wearing bright colors and doing The Wave and heckling the opposing team and cheering their guts out.  It was absolutely delightful.  And I got to see this live in front of my face:

Ok ok, so I missed the first two goals – but mostly because some idiots made us walk around this huge stadium 3 times because no one knew which door we were supposed to go in.  But we finally made it.  And it was SO GOOD.

  1. I went there and saw France beat Lithuania. It was great, the only song they played was Wonderwall. The Metro going home… not so fun.
