I go to football stadiums since I was 10, and as a good Corinthians supporter, I considered Pacaembu as our home. I was reluctant going to Itaquerão because of that, but after the first time, I could no longer stop going.
I'm learning there a new way of watching the games. Those old times of sitting on the same chair every time, meeting the same guys, is gone.
The vibe now is that of big Arenas, that's how my son will understand football and I'm beginning to understand now this new meaning of going to a game in São Paulo.
The crazy thing is, even if the game is bad, the big show is really the people who go to the stadium, they're real characters, and they now are gaining other expressions, other faces too.
It's more a family thing now, but still I keep my tradition of going alone, because I enjoy paying attention! When I go with friends, we walk together, having a beer, but once we get in, we take our separate ways and then regroup at the end.
