This is probably my last football post for a few months. Somebody sent me a facebook notice about Manchester United playing in Chicago in July.
I wonder how the build-up for the big match is going in England’s royal family. I didn’t know Prince William rooted for Aston Villa. His brother is an Arsenal man. Not a big surprise, I guess. Is Dad, as the Prince of Wales, obligated to go for Swansea?
I was surprised to read Aston Villa has won the cup seven times. But not for more than half a century.
I’ll have to miss the match, as I have a wedding to play at the parish tomorrow afternoon.
Swansea closed out the season with two losses, but were locked into 8th place anyway.
While I was at church Sunday morning the EPL played out its ten simultaneous matches. By the afternoon, they started appearing online courtesy of my cable provider, so I had the relegation matches playing while I worked trying to fix the downstairs toilet with new innards. That appliance was relegated Monday and replaced with a new signing.
I think I can actually say I’ve had my fill of English football. I can shift to MLS for a few months and it might be that I’ll be relocating near a present or future team. We will see.
Aren’t you watching the live feed of the FIFA election?
Was on the road to visit my spiritual director today. Caught the news on BBC on the way home. I have to say that soccer really fills my appetite for soap opera.
