Professional Tailgating: Flyers vs. Islanders

As part of my birthday gift my wife sent me to the Flyers Islanders game on Thursday night and here are some of the sites and sounds from the game.

Wow UEFA got this right

For years the Round of 16 of the Champions League had been played over two days and it was hard to get the chance to see all of the action, but this year that has change. This year the eight match ups were played over four days allowing for time for hardcore fans to see all of the match ups.

In the past it would be hard for everyone to see the games and now we are able to see them and enjoy them, its easier to watch two games a day then having to watch four games a day.

While UEFA might screw up most thing, at least for the Round of 16 of the Champions League UEFA has done something that is fan friendly.
