We attended the Venezuela v. Puerto Rico WBC game last night in Miami at Dolphin Stadium. As Dave mentioned in last night's post, the World Baseball Classic game was incredible. The entire night was a little surreal. There were so many big names on each team that it was almost like watching an all-star game and the atmosphere was that of an Olympic game or World Cup Soccer Championship.

There were more Venezuelan fans than Puerto Rican fans, however, all fans had passion. They showed their love on their faces, shirts, flags, signs and you name it. Singing and dancing continued out into the parking lots and streets well after the game was over.

We added the WBC game to our agenda only about 1 week before we left for Florida and we are very thankful we made that decision.

Here is a slideshow to show some highlights, however, it is impossible to capture the electic atmosphere completely. We were behind the net so some are not as clear as I'd hoped.
