On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, I was at school and it was raining. We had to go in for indoor recess (elementary school Grade 8) because of the rain. One of my friends, another girl, and myself were the only people in the classroom at this time as other people were just walking in. Our teacher came in and she told me that a plane crashed into the World Trade Center. To be honest, I thought nothing of it at that point, but then we had to go into the gymnasium. The principal told us of the news and how both towers began to collapse. We basically just watched CNN the whole day.
When Saddam was captured, I had just woke up. As soon as I came down, my parents told me that Saddam was captured. I said, "That's great," and poured myself a bowl of Oatmeal Crisp.
When France tied Italy off of a controversial Wiltord goal (come on, FIVE MINUTES OF EXTRA-TIME?), I was ready to celebrate Italy's victory. I was in front of my TV in an Italian jersey, eating grapes. (Amazing how bad memories stick, eh?
) My friend was in the washroom and was ready to go flagging in the car. I told him it was tied, the toliet flushed, the door opened, and he said, "You're ****ing kidding me," with the most serious face I've ever seen.
I was watching Juve-Milan with a Milan fan at my house. I kicked him out right after.
When Juventus won the Champions' League in 1996, I was too young. Same goes with the Intercontinental Cup. I just remember watching SportsCentre on TSN and I was happy because the team with the black and white stripes had won the Champions' League. I had a Juventus jersey brought back from Italy by my parents at that time as well.
When Princess Diana died, I was at a Toronto Blue Jays game at Skydome, now the "Rogers Centre". They were playing the Florida Marlins, and all of the people were so upset when that news came up on the huge screen. My parents were really down that day, so I figured she was someone important.
