Juventus FC vs. Chivas CD de Guadalajara

Seeing Juventus live without having to travel to Italy was truly awesome. The perhaps more surprising part is that they came to Raleigh, North Carolina to play at North Carolina State's football stadium. This also meant that (and rather embarassingly so) the field was not as wide as a regulation field.

It was purely surreal to be in the presence of Italian World Cup Winners Alessandro Del Piero, Andrea Pirlo, Luca Toni, Giorgio Chiellini, and the legendary Gigi Buffon, who did not actually play. New signing Reto Ziegler started for the Bianconeri and Serbian international Milos Krasic also came on. The wealth of talented players also included Quagliarella and his clinical finish in the 12th minute, after snatching the ball off of a miss clearance from a Chivas defender.

It was also slightly surreal to be in the presence of a completely Chivas audience.
