Chelsea FC have won their fifth EPL Championship.
Way to go Blues!
For the fourth time in the last ten years, Chelsea F.C. are champions of the English Premier League. The Blues got it done today against Palace, thanks to a goal from Eden Hazard. They earned all three points with a 1-0 victory, putting them at 83, where no one can catch them. Congrats to the boys from Stamford Bridge, 2014-2015 EPL Champions!
A bit preachy, sure. But the arrest of Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay just points out once again the arrogance, and more directly, the stupidity of some of those in our society that feel they are above the law simply because they have immense assets.
I understand that drugs and/or alcohol seem to have a grip on Irsay, but I am still baffled by the notion that a man could build a football powerhouse in Indianapolis, and along with it, a personal fortune in excess of a billion dollars, and yet he can’t see the folly inherent in driving under the influence in a car laced with drugs.
He obviously needs help and hopefully this will shake him into seeking it. But my God, what a fool. For all his brilliance and insight, what a damn arrogant fool. He should just be glad he was stopped before he killed someone.
Updated 4-26-11: The initial enthusiasm expressed below was somewhat muted by the scoreless games that followed, but against West Ham, Torres finally showed what the non-believers have been waiting for. Number nine took about that many minutes to put his stamp on this match. He scored his first goal in blue, made a lovely assist on another and almost a third as he laced a cross past the defenders swarming on him. His goal came on a brilliant turn, after losing his pace to a puddle on the soaked pitch, he turned and hit the net corner beyond the helpless keeper. He was roundly mobbed by his teammates, and just as importantly, sealed a victory that keeps Chelsea’s slim hopes alive. Well done Fernando.
On Sunday, millions of fans across America will be watching the Superbowl, but the only football game I’m interested in will be taking place in jolly ‘ol England.
With their recent acquisition of Fernando Torres, Chelsea is ready to make a run for the Champions League trophy, as well as a hopeful defense of their EPL crown. With Man U and Arsenal both failing to garner three points in their latest fixtures, a huge opportunity has presented itself, making this an even bigger game than normal. With Torres making his debut for the Blues against his former team, it’s a must see.
So, as millions gather to drink beer and root for teams they really don’t care about, I will be in my black away jersey cheering on my favorite footballers. Go Chelsea!
