TB Goes To The Stadium
I know that this post is one week overdue, but you know: better late than never. So here are the photos of all the action of the opening day from the stands(until my camera battery died, my phone memory was full, and the guy next to me refused to give me his phone for a spin). You can’t get that anywhere.
1:30 PM The stadium is still empty, I guess we're early. What are they doing? Are they still painting the lines? Isn't it a little late for that?!! Only in Egypt, sigh
3:00 PM The stadium is starting to fill up. It wouldn't be a full house though. I hope I am wrong. Mounir is playing on the new scoreboards. They look cool!
Our beloved security forces are assuming a new role today: entertainers! The openinng show is played by approx. 5 thousand army soldiers.
4:30 PM Now we're talking
4:45 PM Some troubles at the Libyan stands
5:30 PM the opening is underway!
The marching band is one of my favorites. Their red customes on the new blue track is really cool
Wow! 16 parachautests each with the flag of one country are landing into the stadium. The whole stadium is singing: "Ahom Ahom Ahom El-Masreyen Ahom" ("Here Comes the Egyptians")
The sun ship entering the stadium. That's a real size replica
Let me leave you with some fireworks!
Meet you next match!
