Yon-Ko Jeon

8 09 2008

So Yon-Ko Jeon is the big series of sports games between Yonsei and Korea University. In all there is a soccer, rugby, hockey, baseball, and basketball. I went to the rugby and soccer game which was in the Seoul Olympic Stadium, and it was pretty insane. It was basically seven hours of non-stop organized cheering. It was pretty fun though and some of the cheers were actually pretty cool. My personal favorite was “Saranha da Yonsei” which translates into “I Love Yonsei”, here is a YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffr_jUmvTSA.

Both games ended up good for Yonsei, which gave Yonsei the lead in the series, so we won this year. The one goal in the soccer game was quite a nice one at that too. Not super amazing, but it was just clean and nice with a good feed.

After the game there was a big concert and party at school where the Wonder Girls played. Many people thought it was amazing, but I thought it was rather unimpressive as they only played about three songs before leaving. People then walked around Sinchon and went to bars and such to continue the festivities, if the party at Yonsei wasn’t enough for them. It was a very long night, that I believe made me sick after some of those beers and hanigng around outisde all night in the semi-chilly weather. It was a good night overall though and worth it in the end.

The blue/good side is Yonsei and the red/evil side is Korea.

So Jet Lagging Sucks

27 08 2008

As the titles says, being jet lagged sucks. I have felt really bad all day, maybe due to the fact I only got about six hours of sleep, and had a very strange waking up experience that took about one second, which was odd. Normally my waking up is a very protracted process. I am definitely tired out right now though. It was another fun day, but it was also exhausting. I am definitely going to take tonight easy and rest up for tomorrow, which will probably end with something (probably drinking).

I do have a picture to show off though! We went onto one of the guys’ brother’s roof and it has a great view of Seoul and Sinchon. So here it is:
