I’ve alway prided myself on being a fan. I love competition and embrace the energy sporting events bring. This passion was on full display in my first European Soccer experience last night in Klagenfurt, Austria. Miles from the actual event, the flags were flying high. I can now say I’ve watched my first soccer match.

Luckily, this was the Euro 2012 semifinals and the finals are Sunday night.

Ironman early and soccer in the eve.

Game on for this fan.
