Gunners Disappointment

Unlike Cold Heat, Arsenal squandered their chances at the double today. Just as I was about to call into work and alert them of a potential extra-time/late to work situation, Chelsea scored in the 87th minute and that was that. In a matter of three days Arsenal have departed from both the FA Cup and Champions League competitions. The Premiership League crown is (hopefully) still for the taking barring any further atrocious slipups.
John Cooper’s years with the Buckeyes have prepared me well for bitter disappointment in the wake of such promise so I think I’ll cope sufficiently. However, a few days ago I bought tickets for the Chelsea v Celtic match in Seattle in the Chelsea supporters section. I don’t know what I was thinking.


The soccer squad I am playing on completed our undefeated run tonight. Team Cold Heat compiled a 12-1-0 record on the march to the title. Thankfully, the one draw was avenged in an extra-time/penalty kicks thriller during the playoffs.
We go for the “Double” (both league and intra-city honors) on the 17th when we face the league champs from Redmond.
