My favourite domestic team colours are also blue and white, and I usually go to the match with my father ex-excellent football player) It's our tradition to drink some beer before kick-off.

The listening was interesting and not very difficult. One new word I've learnt I did't know before. It's a "turnstile". I occasionally go to the match with my friends and before kick-off we usually talk about our football players. I always feel exited and happy.
