The 80 Million Dollar Man

I thought I would be the one to write the West Ham stays up on a dramatic win at Old Trafford article because Freshman and Brendan might just put up the lyrics to "Forever Blowing Bubbles". This season in the English Premiership has been dominated by the individual performance. Cristiano Ronaldo being the difference between Manchester United and Chelsea, Didier Drogba being the difference between Chelsea as the number 2 team or Chelsea as the number 5 team, and Carlos Tevez keeping West Ham in the Prem. Today's goal by Tevez was everything that English football is about drama, passion, and brilliant skill.

West Ham earned their spot in the Prem next year. 4 straight wins to finish out the season makes the drop avoidale the stuff of legends. I unfortunately, will never get this experience being a Chelsea fan. We are eventually going to have a problem with relegation but we aren't going to have a chance if Roman and his checkbook leave. Freshman and Brendan got a chance to prove their loyalty to West Ham this year. They had to live through a coaching change mid-season, Javier Mascherano, and an ownership change. You guys got the opportunity to bleed Blue and whatever the fuck you guys call that Red Shit on your jerseys.

The money that is going to come in from the inevitable Tevez transfer should be enough to get West Ham through another year or two of top-flight football. I hope Chelsea isn't the team to steal Tevez from his rightful place in world football.

P.S. There is a story that is very soccer-centric that involves Freshman, Me, and the Chicken and Cheese but at this point my sleep schedule and body are too fucked up to tell it.

    I've been trying to think of a way to describe Saturday without sounding like Bukowski.

    I don't want my future children or your future children to have to read about what we did on Saturday.
