English Premier League Kicks Off

The English Premier League will be kicking off in a mere 5 hours with my Tottenham Hotspur traveling to Sunderland for the season opener. This looks to be an exciting season at White Hart Lane as Tottenham made plenty of significant transfers over the summer, most notably bringing in Darren Bent from Charlton for a club record transfer fee of £16.5 million.

The one drawback to following the EPL sometimes is getting up to watch the games. While the game starts at 12:45pm in England, that means kickoff is at 7:45am here in Pennsylvania. Though I am what I consider a loyal fan, 7:45am might be a little rough for a Saturday, especially against a team that wasn't even in the EPL last year. At least I don't live out west...

Wow! Arsenal got killed last night! Anybody see it?
The fans must have been furious! 5 – 1, I mean Tottenham played very well but Arsenal fielded barely any first team players, what were they thinking!? The Fans have every right to be annoyed! When you travel to see your team play you expect them to at least try! Whoever did a little football spread betting on Arsenal losing will be laughing all the way to work this morning! Maybe I Should start spread betting and see if I can win a few bets! I want to laugh on the way to work!
