It's time already for the start of the 2012-13 season of the Barclay's English Premier League!
I am completely psyched up for the upcoming season. The end of last season was one of the most exciting finishes ever! There is no reason this season won't deliver the same quality.
We have a new ball this year.... the Nike Maxim Ultra Flight somethingorother.....
Reading (pronounced 'Redding')
West Ham United
and we say goodbye to
all relegated down.
If you want to keep track of how things are progressing throughout the season, go to the Official Site of the Barclay's Premier League. <------------Clicky
Now, for those of you have managed to read this far, I have a little contest for you. Throughout the season I want you to keep an eye on your team. There are 31 Saturdays in the season. On every one of those Saturdays, I will put up a post.
I will give you until Monday to post a comment giving me the score of your favourite team's game, and listing one of the goal scorer's. If no score, the names of the two goal keepers.
For every time you post correctly, you get three points. If you make an effort, but somehow screw it up, I'll hand out one point. The one with the most points at the end of the season wins a prize. I'll randomize everyone else to give out another prize.
If you don't follow English football, fear not! Simply go to the Premier League homepage. <---- Clicky.
Along the top are the icons that will lead you to all of the teams webpages. Do a little research, and pick one! Congratulations! You now have a favourite team.
You will have fun learning about your team throughout the season, I promise.
As an incentive, I picked up a box of 2006 Benchwarmers World Cup with 24 packs. I will open and post those packs, one every Saturday.
Here's your first taste.
Irish defender Alana Curry
Polish midfielder Janis Kowalsky. Because she looks like a Kowalsky. More like a Tanaka.
Sweet mother.... Kasie Head. Like Sean Connery said, "I must be dreaming..."
and Mexican keeper Tammy Vallejos
so there you have it.... quit gawking and get to finding your team. The matches start 8:00 am MST.
Go United!!!! Beat the Blues!
