Fenerbache Fotball

European football, known in North America as soccer, is BIG here.  Boys play together on fields and on basketball courts.  I haven't seen anything that looks like organized leagues in our area.  There is one covered arena in Gelibolu which likely contains a soccer field for league play.

Yesterday Ekrem, a work collegue of Cam's brought Sam a football jersey and ball cap.  He wanted to be sure that Sam will support his favourite team, Fennerbache.  Last night we watched the semi final on ATV, thankfully Fenerbache won in overtime on a penalty kick. We had a good time cheering them on.
