Soccer in Serbia
Today, our last day in Belgrade, we were originally supposed to be attending a Partizan - Jagodina soccer match. Those plans lost their luster when we found out from locals in the know that a group of Americans might be a target for abuse at a game near the anniversary date of NATO's bombing of Belgrade. But, it turned out we couldn't go to the game anyway, because of some fan troubles after a previous match.
This lack of a game was especially disappointing to the men in the group, but Milos was able to arrange a pick-up game at an indoor field next to his former high school. The American players were too good to be allowed to be on the same team, so it ended up Milos & Mitch +3 vs. Scott +4. Milos & Mitch prevailed 7:6, but everyone enjoyed the exercise after a week of meat and more meat.
