U-20 World Cup: Border Crossing

This was the conversation on the way back from Toronto after the US v Uruguay game.

Customs Agent: Where are you headed now?
Me: Back to Newark.
Customs Agent: What's in Newark?
Me: Family.
Customs Agent: So take me through your trip from when you flew into Newark until today. After Newark, I'm kind of lost.
Me: Me too.

... (followed by more suspicious border crossing banter and then)...

Customs Agent: So why did you go to Ottawa?
Me: To watch the US play in the U-20 World Cup.
Customs Agent: So why were you in Toronto?
Me: To watch the US play again.
Customs Agent: So what, you like follow the team around all over the country?
Me: Pretty much.
