At some time in the past 11 years, from my home in the Chicago area, I fell in love with Arsenal, a London-based Premier League football club. Before the 2015-16 season, a share of season tickets fell into my lap and, in this blog, I chronicled my obsession and family adventures in London and back in Chicago.
I gave up the share for 2016-17, but just couldn’t stick with the decision as the share somehow didn’t manage to find new hands. What could I do? There it was, orphaned.
I gave it up “for good” at the end of 2017, when I moved to California.
All right…. I’ve managed to attend a few matches since then and it’s clear I can’t really put it behind me, not forever, anyway. Join me in my travels to London during the season in which Arsenal are sure to win the Premiership.
