As I was going through photos from a recent trip to the states, I found this from the last football match I attended – newly installed poles (no pun intended!) with cameras trained on the fans rather than the players. There are about a dozen around the pitch. If we’re here long enough to buy season tickets again, it will be worth looking for seats with the least obstructed view!
I should also say that I got to meet Kasia, a Poznan native now living in Houston, while I was home. From our blogosphere connection, I knew we would hit it off, and we did!
An accountant by trade and a food blogger since 2009, Lois Britton fell in love with Polish cuisine during the years she lived in Poznań, Poland. As the creator of PolishHousewife.com, she loves connecting readers with traditional Polish recipes. Lois has a graduate certificate in Food Writing and Photography from the University of South Florida. She is the author of The Polish Housewife Cookbook, available on Amazon and on her website.
It was a pleasure to meet you Lois! Thank you for taking the time to have lunch with me – I enjoyed it immensely. I am looking forward to seeing you again in June – in Poznan!
Btw – the stadium looks quite empty.
Kasia, you're right. We arrived early, but attendance has been light. At least the Kolejorz end zone has been full and making noise.
A Legia Warsaw game earlier this season saw a big banner with the picture of a black coloured man being crossed out, as well as a Star of David being crossed out together with the words "white power". Club authorities said they couldn't do nowt as they "didn't know who the fans are". I guess having cameras aids detection.
