(New York Daily News)   It takes a brave NY Daily newser to go to Belgium only to get knocked around, booed, have beer thrown at you, and then get smothered by Belgian hotties after your U.S. team gets eliminated by them   (nydailynews.com) divider line 6

Getting smothered by Belgian hotties is a tough job but someone has to do it.

I have a good friend who works for the US Soccer Foundation in DC.  About 8-9 yrs ago or so, DC United played a Mexican team (pro league) in Los Angeles.  He flew in for the game and away we go, to the LA Coliseum to catch the match.  We walk into the place and there's about 20,000 fans in the stands, all wearing yellow and green.  My friend, being pasty white and wearing his red and black DC United jersey stood out like a sore thumb.   I was wearing a simple blue t-shirt.

I swear as we hit the entry ramp and entered the Coliseum, there was a actually an audible gasp let out, upon seeing someone enter not wearing the Mexican team's colors.  When we took our seats, the crowd around us was seemingly hostile.  I leaned toward him and told him the famous coward's creed: "remember Dave, I don't have to outrun this crowd, I only have to outrun you!

About an hour into it and DC United down 2-0, the crowd actually started taking a very sympathetic tone with us. There were even a couple of guys insisting they buy us some beers after stopping and talking to him and finding out that he had traveled all the way from DC for the match and worked for US Soccer.  After the match, we probably had a few hundred people come by and congratulate us on being brave enough to be the sole DC United Fans in the entire stadium.  (I guess it's possible others were there, but NO ONE was wearing anything close to the Red and Black colors of the United.)

I thought for certain we were going to be the headlines on the news that night, as the victims of "soccer hooligans" and I still wonder what the crowd's reaction would have been if DC United had prevailed.

When you walk into the opposition's stadium and act like a douche, don't be surprised when people aren't all warm and fuzzy with you.

The Colosseum is an open, festering, boil of putridness during a soccer game. When I was a kid, I watched the US/Mexico Gold Cup final there and got hit w/ all sorts of debris. I was lucky. Another guy got hit w/ vomit in a cup. There were rumors of urine in a cup, but never saw it first hand.

I'd eat her Belgian waffle, if you know what I mean.
