Fútbol Dudn't Get Any Better than Dis!

Arsenal Celebrated it's 125th anniversity today. The Gunners' legends including Frank McLintock, Charlie George, David O’Leary, George Graham, Robert Pires, Jens Lehmann and Henry - who yesterday had a bronze statue of him unveiled outside the ground - all helped make up a guard of honour as Captain Robin van Persie led the current side onto the field. With 20 minutes remaining in the game, Alex Song and the Flying Dutchmen exceuted this poetry in motion:

The three Gunners on Vigilance FC (my rotisserie team) are Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny and RVP. Together they netted more than half of my points this week. Last August, my rotisserie opponents derided my first round draft of RVP as the man with the glass ankles. That's because of his past history of injuries. Mid-season now, and I go to bed every Friday night with my fingers crossed and wearing an Arsenal shirt. If these rituals work their magic, Robin will remain the man with the golden feet!
