Premier

Another Fulbright teacher, Jim Pielow, is living in Scotland with his family.  He contacted me about some Chelsea football tickets he won.  He would not be able to attend the game, and asked if I wanted them.  I said to send them down, and he did.

I took my new friend Christopher to the game in London.  He is the husband of Kaye, whom I work with.  Same age, same interests as me.  He does not use public transportation that much as he loves to drive.  I planned our day using trains only.  We both joked that an American was showing a Brit how to get around London by train.  We had a smashing time and Chelsea won, beating Sunderland.  I now have a new favourite British football team.  Chelsea!

Having some pints before the game.

View from our seats.  Not the best, but the tickets were free and Chelsea won, so it was all good.

Go ahead goal being scored.  They won 2-1.

Sunderland's new coach.  He is a self-proclaimed fascist and his hiring was in the news all week.

New fan gear!  The Chelsea store is mega-huge! Two stories tall and was packed with fans.  They sell everything a Chelsea fan could want, and the prices were not outrageous.
