A couple years ago the English Tourist Board revised their list of things they recommend people do in England. They suggested a Manchester United game at Old Trafford. Now, if you get close to 80,000 people all singing the same song, it's a pretty amazing feeling. But if you're a tourist and don't know the Man U chants, go to the Trafford Pub, just outside the stadium. An hour or so before the game it will be ram-packed with United fans, and they'll all be singing. You'll have a chance to learn before you go to the grounds. Pay special attention to the song for Wayne Rooney, my favorite player.
