Chris Bjola on Sporting in Lisbon

A Favourite Memory from this Trip

By Chris Bjola

If I had to choose a favourite thing that we did on this trip, it would definitely be the football match in Lisbon.  I’ve been to many pro sports events, but I had never been to a football match before, so this was definitely a new experience for me.  About twenty of us went to the match, which featured Sporting FC, which is from Lisbon, and Lyon, from France.

The game was very exciting, but it was impossible to understand what the announcer was saying, mostly because it was in Portuguese.  The greatest part of the game was simply the atmosphere and the entire stadium going nuts when Sporting scored within the first ten minutes of the match.  The match ended with Sporting FC coming out on top, 2-0.
