Hull City A.F.C. Tigers

Bryan and I are in the same boat right now when it comes to finding things to write about. When I read his most recent post he mentioned that he would be writing more about soccer and I figured I would try to jump on that bandwagon. Unfortunately for me, I don’t know much about soccer and this will be my first ever soccer post. Buckle your seatbelts because this could get a little rough. All I really know is that my favorite EPL team is Hull City, so I figured that would be a good place for me to start. Back in December I wrote this post about which team in each major (and one not-so-major) sporting league was my favoirte and why. In that post I revealed my newly found favorite EPL team to be Hull City. Well in the 2007-08 season they successfully made the promotion to the EPL for the first time in club history.

Saturday Happenings

Williams would take the blame for the horrible idea later saying:

The whole idea was to keep our foot on the pedal, and not play scared. If anyone is looking for somebody to blame, blame this guy right here.

EPL Champions Again

As some of you who follow soccer may know, Manchester United won the English Premier League for the 17th time overall. I’m not a huge Man U fan, but it’s not Chelsea so I’m happy. Congratulations to the Red Devils. In honor of them, here’s a video of Man U highlights set to U2. Enjoy.
