A few games ago a young man was going nuts inside Section 8. He was awesome. Pure unadulterated support. The kind of support that elbows you in the face on accident. Fedora and I made a point to grab him after the game and talk to him. Turns out he is an exchange student from Japan named Azu. At least I think that is his name. More importantly he supports the Fire and Yokohama F Marinos. He heads back to Japan sometime this week. He found us at the end of last night's game and said he hopes to come back sometime. We discussed the tantalizing possibility of a Club World Cup final of Chicago vs Yokohama. Pictures were taken. Hugs were given. It was awesome. Safe travels my friend. I'll be pulling for Yokohama in the J League.
