of course that’s what happened.

i’m a manchester united boy through and through. my dad’s a fan. and i’m a fan now. i’m not one of those bandwagon whore’s who jumped on after the 1999 treble. it’s something i have with my dad.

and english premier league football is hard to find here in the US. tv rights are hard to come by. i’ve driven to santa monica from k-town at 5am. i’ve left classes early to catch the game. i’ve left parties to get to a bar on time. all so i could watch the game. i never miss them. one way or another… i’ll get to the right place at kick off.

so when i finally purchased a single channel plan on my computer which allows me to see every game LIVE from my computer/phone/ipad, etc… i was over the fucking moon. I FINALLY PAID FOR FOOTBALL! FUCK WIN!

this was last tuesday.

for those of you not versed in the recent happenings of football. manchester united; the biggest, the proudest, and best team on the planet (no bias there) were bundled out of the champions league by basel. a swiss team with the collective talent of a broken garden gnome, thereby taking away HALF of the value of my new football channel subscription. losing at this stage of the tournament hasn’t happened since 05.

yeah. of course.

    Dude, just got around to reading your blog. Love that you’re not just a glory boy, love that you’re a fan cos of family. Buy got to unfortunately disagree on one point. Man U are the second best team on the planet. Last year’s CL final was between the two best teams, but it’s clear who was best. No shame in that, I think this barca team (though time’s catching up a bit this year) are possibly the best ever, including club and national sides. Hard to think of a better one, maybe Brazil 82 but that’s about it in my lifetime. I gather Real in the 50s were unstoppable with Di Stefano and Puskas, but who knows.

    Anyways don’t hate me. Just sayin’ is all.
