Today was the first day of calcio and I just want to say that Arancione is going to take this league!
All the students left the JFRC and headed towards the fields around 6:30. Everyone was very excited and ready to play. Once we all got there half of the teams started playing while the rest cheered them on.
It was awesome to see the mix of people who had never played, with the people who had played for their entire lives. Everybody tried their best and that allowed some very action packed games to take place!
The student referees all did a great job and called very fair games. When the first round of games ended, the second round began. Arancione played a great game against Bordeaux and won. I am in Arancione, in case anyone was wondering.
At the end of all the games, the students, SLAs and professors who played, went to eat pizza. This is a tradition at the JFRC and it is a great place to get to know people better and make new friends.
