Remember the commercial clip from Mastercard where dad is taking his son to the football game ? It did touch me very much. I have never believed this happening is so very much true. Very long ago I took my son to the football game to San Siro Stadium in Milan (Italy). When I saw the expression on my son’s face when we stepped into this grandiose monument, Yes it was worth every penny. We had such great time, like it was promised in the commercial clip. Since then I repeated such tips many times, visiting games of local club, football (soccer), hockey, basketball and even snooker.
Those were the times, when I hadn’t enough courage to organize a trip such that one on my own. Now it’s different. Internet made everything easier. Tickets can be bought to every and each event. Last weekend was extended free weekend, so we decided to visit the game in Verona between Chievo and AC Fiorentina.
Verona is prox. 3 1/2 hours away from our home. One stop for marvelous cappuccino on the Highway Autogrill Service is another great experience. For me, the best coffee is prepared there. Stadium in Verona where Chievo is playing its home games is quiet big, can host 38.000 visitors. Italians do live for the football. Fans are singing in front of the gates before the game. Out of the stadium many shops offered variety of fan articles. But no swimwear.Vittori Swimwear offers one Slip for Chievo Fans called Desert Sand in the yellow&blue colors and one for the AC Fiorentina fans called Martinez in violet colors. Of course it would be very funny if you wear swimwear when attending the game, so I do not advise to do so. But on the beach, it would feel great for you fans, if you wear that small piece of fabric in the colors of your team.
The game itself was typical season’s game, honestly Fiorentina was better player almost 2/3 of the game, but the last 20 minutes Chievo could and should score, but luck wasn’t on their side. Game ended scoreless.
But for us it really didn’t matter. We had great time. On the way there, when we had coffee break, when we shared slices of tasty pizza in the restaurant. On the way home we talked really a lot, rescuing the world’s most difficult problems.
If you have a son, if you have a child, make this kind of trip together. It makes your day, it makes your life.
It’s priceless. It’s worth.
