Controlling the quality of life. That's what she said.

World-record breaking Quakes never cease to impress

Yesterday was a historic day in Bay Area sports. After years of fighting for its own soccer-specific stadium, followed by a fight to bring the Earthquakes back to San Jose (because they were ripped away to Houston, boo…), followed once again by years of fighting for a stadium, the day has finally come for us to welcome this stadium. Well, at least we can welcome the plot of land on which the new stadium will sit in 2014. There was an awesome wrecking ball painted to look like a soccer ball, which dropped to signal for all 6,000-plus fans to begin digging for 2 minutes straight. My hole was pretty pathetic, but it was fun nonetheless.

It was formally announced that the Quakes had clinched the Supporter Shield, an honor granted to the team with the best regularly season record. This means they clinched home field advantage throughout the playoffs. N’ lucky me, I get to attend their first home playoff game at Buck Shaw Stadium with my friend!

World record…wow. It was so nice to see over 6,000 fans gather to support this team, this city. The strong sense of community I felt warmed my heart.

World record for attendance & partaking in a groundbreaking was broken! / QC APPROVED.

Everything seems right in the world.
