Despite the seats not being totally filled, the ambiance was awesome. So much cheering, jeering, chanting, singing, and booing. We all got in on the chants of "allez les jaunes," since our team wore yellow.
Luckily our team won, which kept the crowds happy. The longer the game went on, the more excited the crowd got and the more fun it was to watch.
I've never really been a huge soccer fan, or any kind of sports fan for that matter. The one sport that I don't mind watching, and in the case of the Olympics I love, is hockey. Pretty Canadian, but whatever. Anyways, my Dad always has told me about how wimpy soccer players are because they always go down whether they're hurt or not, in order to get a penalty for the other team. Well, Dad, now is the time to tell you that you're right. I actually found myself yelling at the players when they went down, telling them to pick themselves up and stop being such pansies! I couldn't believe how wimpy they were... my favourite one might have been the five second delayed reaction from this one player...
I did take a video, but it unfortunately won't load, so here are some pictures from the game:

Today I went to St. Nazaire for a day trip, so I'll write about that tomorrow!
