Above, is the greatest goal I think I have ever seen in person. David Beckham in his prime with a brilliant chip on my trip to Upton Park in 2002. I bought some new hardware so now I know how to get stuff from my extensive video collection on to my blog (yes, In 2010, I am figuring that out).
So, for no other reason, I pulled that game out and posted it up for you. And, while I am at it, here are the 8 matches I have seen in the United Kingdom to date.
The Results from my 4 Road Trips to England:
Deportivo 2, Arsenal 0 3/12/2002 - Champions League
Manchester United 5, West Ham 3 3/16/2002
Arsenal 2, Charlton 1 2/28/2004
Newcastle 1, Portsmouth 1 2/29/2004
Manchester United 1, Liverpool 0 3/3/07
Blackburn 2, Bolton 1 3/4/07
Chelsea 3, Aston Villa 0 4/10/10 - FA Cup Semifinal
Liverpool 0, Fulham 0 4/11/10
I imagine it would have to be a really boring day at your job to find this interesting, but that is why I named this post like I did. In fact, I was just looking through my ticket stubs the other day and was reminded of the day in February of 2004 when I had a chance to see Arsenal in person (with Spike Lee and the picture I took below)
