It has been a long while since I wrote a journal.
I spent New Year's Eve watching "STAR WARS: The Force Awakens." I was going to spend to ring 2016 either in my sister's apartment or my own depending when I got out. I made it home in time to watch the ball drop.
For Easter me and my sister went to the Church of St. Joseph in Greenwich Village. It has a choir from NYU so the music is wonderful. The church is much simple designs that is still beautiful in a quiet subdued way. It was a nice church. We want for brunch and I always have someting that I don't make myself. I had steak and eggs. Then we went to Zootopia. We both smiled at the fact we went to a film starring a rabbit on Easter.
We went to the Columbia vs. Peru soccer game. This was great fun. It was in the Meadowlands. We went straight from work and made with plenty of time to spare. We had great seats and could see the whole field. I think that TV distorts the size of the field. It seems smaller in person. Still I could not run from one end to the other without fainting. We have a large Columbian community and none too shabby Peruvian Community.
We enjoy the game where to really evenly match teams. The fans were fun and boisterous. The fans chanted things, I have not a single clue as what they were saying. When the game started somebody release balloons in Columbia yellow. In the second half some Fans of Peru were chanting something. The Columbia fan seating in fronts kept staring behind us giving them the stink eye.
It was the sour look I get when people mention the New England Patriots or Boston Red Sox. The fan looked like that was fighting words. I wanted to tell them enjoy the game, let security have their hands full with crowd control.
Nothing happened but it is slightly distrubing. Columbia eventually won in a shoot out.
The only advantage I have is that I walk with wound boot and a cane. Everybody at the stadium were very kind. They directing me and my sister to the elavator and sped us to the train. The only good thing about my ordeal, I am still working on the requests.
