Gooner Blanket Monday, Sep 29 2008 

25 September 2008
A couple of years ago a co-worker showed up at my cubicle with a present. A wonderful, unsolicited, beautiful present.
Arsenal Throw
She had been to an Estate sale over the weekend, and espied this fantastic blanket which she snapped up for a measly $2.00. She knew that I’m a Gooner and that this blanket would be headed to a fine home. In the summer & fall months, the blanket covers my office chair. In the winter & early spring months, the blanket migrates to the living room so that I can huddle under it while watching Arsenal destroy whichever team it is they are playing on that day.
Cheers.

Gooner Thursday, May 8 2008 

5 May 2008
This is one of many Arsenal branded items I own. It’s one way to saying to the world at large, "I’m a gooner, and I’m proud of it!"
The Arsenal Cannon
Of course Arsenal broke my heart this year, as they have several years running. Poor exit from Carling Cup against the dreaded neighbours up at Shitehart Lane followed by an unceremonious drubbing in the FA Cup against ManU(re). Most recently a dip in form on the domestic front cost the Gunners far too many points allowing either Chel$ki or ManU(re) to take the EPL trophy again; while a strong Liverpudlian side kicked us squarely in the nobbies and dumped us from Champion’s League glory. Now, with one game left in the season (against Sunderland), the best Arsene and his squad can hope for is third place and no silverware for the cabinet. Now, of course, comes speculation time as the rabid English press start digging up dirt and causing massive amounts of unrest. We have already lost Matthieu Flamini to the Italian giants, AC Milan, and it looks like his on and off pitch chum, Hleb will be joining him in the city, but not on the pitch. The later being, at the moment, speculative rumour that I hope doesn’t come true. But, greed being the most fickle of the footballer’s love interest, Hleb will follow the money as Flamini did before him. Nonetheless, I’m a gooner ’til I die no matter the on and off pitch antics, hystrionics & rumours.
Cheers.
