World Cup Watching In Koreatown

As many of you know, I work in Koreatown, and since Korea's game against Nigeria was at 11:30 a.m. today, I took advantage of it being aired in a big park on two screens.

This picture is from the screen on top of the building. I watched most of the second half of the game from that screen.

This next three pictures are where Radio Korea set up another screen, had speakers, and a Korean announcer calling the game, as well as some dancers and drummers sparking the crowd.

Another picture of the same area. You can see the screen next to the while ribbon hanging from the building.

It was fun to be in a crowd rooting for a team that's not a Los Angeles team, be it Lakers, Kings, Dodgers or whatever.

Now, on to tomorrow's game. GO USA!!! BOOO ENGLAND! USA has a chance to move on, so long as England doesn't score many goals against Slovenia and team USA does as well (or better) than England. If both teams tie their opponents, and team USA still has more goals for, they advance with Slovenia. Even if England draws and team USA draws, as long as team USA has the more goals, they WILL advance.
