And a good evening to you from across the Pond. First off - ANNOUNCEMENT!!!! There will be no blog between 6-10 November, as Team Taylor is off again to the Middle East, this time to see the fantastic experient that is Dubai.
Today we crossed off another big one! Well, in truth, we crossed off two, as not only did we see our first UEFA Champions League match, but we finally saw a victory in the United Kingdom! 1 for 5 - YEAH, BABY!!!
Tonight a group of co-workers rolled over to Islington, where we entered a Mecca of British (and global) soccer - Emirates Stadium. Emirates is home to the Arsenal Gunners, one of Britain's premier football clubs.
Before entering, however, we needed food. I sauntered over to a hot dog vendor, where he was selling a ginormous dog for 3 pounds or TWO ginormous dogs (on the same bun) for 4 pounds. I don't think I need to tell you which one I opted for...go ahead and say it, Price - CHUUUUUUUUUUUUBBBBBYYYYY BUUUNNNNNNYYY!!!!!!!!
No disrepect to Leyton Orient (Ori-EEEEEEEENT, OOOOOOO-rient...), but watching Arsenal tonight, one can truly appreciate how beautiful footy is played. These guys were AMAZING, and the goals (all 4 of them) were off the chain. It was such a great experience - the crowd chanting, the energy of the game, and the company were all fantastic. All in all - AMAZING!
After the game, JT and rolled over to the Tube, stopping for a pint at the pub right by the station. I was excited, because, well - it was named after me. The legend clearly has gone world wide...
Okay, that's all the news that's fit to print. Chat with you guys on Veteran's Day, when I give you the recap from the Vegas of the Middle East! Chat then!
(A very, VERY excited) Sam and Jenny
P.S. Posh Puma - I'm happy to report that Arson is still the king - those people LOVE that guy.
