MLS Fans Find Way to Entertain Themselves at MLS Game

September 27, 2010

If the sport of soccer isn’t going to make itself more interesting, then the 268 reluctant season ticket holders of the Chicago Fire (yes, that’s a real team) are going to take matters into their own hands. And they’re not afraid to use a 200-foot Super Mario tapestry to do it. (King Koopa not included.)

During some down time (or as it’s referred to in soccer, “the game”), a collection of people with too much time on their hands decided to show their team pride by recreating the opening level of Super Mario 3.

The execution isn't necessarily spectacular, but the effort is certainly impressive. Plus, they get bonus points for being the only people in the stadium showing a concerted effort to make a soccer game interesting. Which is more than I can say for the players, coaches, and sexually frustrated peanut vendors in attendance.
