Swans Top Arsenal, Man City

swansea city afcFriend and frequent football commentator David sent me this link. Swans fans take note:

It is probably with some surprise that viewing figures in the USA showed the Swans as the 4th most watched Premier League team out there ahead of Premier League ‘giants’ in Arsenal and Manchester City.

Arsene Wenger, take that!

Meanwhile the road kit has changed from half red and half black to green and navy. I think in the NFL teams are prevented from changing uniform colors for years, and even then they still need league permission. I suppose it’s a way to enrich the coffers. Glad my scarf is white.

    NFL is every 5 years I believe.

    Aside from the period kit changes, the sponsor appearing on the strip changes every few years as well. If you must have one, perhaps its best to find a retro, pre-sponsor era strip.

    In other sports-relating blogging by Christians wearing team scarves, Rod Dreher participated in Siena’s palio today as a guest (for the past several days) of the Contrada Onda – which lost its race today (losing is to come in second, not last…):

      In the summer after college, two good friends of mine embarked on the new “Grand Tour” which included a stop in Siena for the Palio. Once there, they somehow managed to offend a group of local teens who in turn promised to shoot my friends. Whatever the source of this blood feud, it ended amicably after my friends offered to treat the local teens to espresso at a nearby café.
