I am at the stadium and in the stands reporting the situation as things happen! (I've been a little slow, still trying to figure how these stupid new PDA/Camera things work).
The 3rd round has begun! And we started out with a terrific battle! Uzumaki Naruto vs Hyuuga Neji!
Naruto won in an amazing upset over Neji. No matter how many hits Neji landed Naruto just kept on fighting. He showed some amazing strength, stamina, and smarts! The only picture I got from this match was this amazing technique Naruto mastered! (He kindly did it for me again after the match)! To think a genin can pull this off!
The next match was suppose to be Gaara from the Sand village vs. Uchiha Sasuke, but Kakashi and Sasuke are still no where to be found. And for some reason the Hokage decided to delay the match till the end. So the following match became Kankuro from the Sand village vs. Aburame Shino, but in a surprising turn of events Kankuro forfeited the match. So Shino won by default. Right after that it was Nara Shikamaru vs Temari also from Sand. Now this was an interesting match. A battle of strategists it seemed. Even though Shikamaru lost by giving up in the end (I have no idea why, he WON)!, he showed some very mature skills for a shinobi his age. He is someone to keep an eye on, he may oneday make a good feild leader.
So that's it for now, everyone is waiting to see if Sasuke shows up. As I look around here everyone is getting restless.
More as it happens! (and I promise I'll figure this PDA/Camera soon, so I can take more pics)!!
