fulham wasn't on the television this weekend, but they won, pushing into 7th place. the top 6 or 7 teams at the end of the year will play in a wider european league, as well as the premiership, which means more money and more games and greater exposure. it's very exciting, specially considering how bad of shape fulham was in last year.
fulham really is a big deal to me, being the team i follow above all others, moreso than any american team (perhaps even the us national team). i don't miss games. so anyway, this all makes me quite happy.
it may be silly to get tied up into sports, but it's a welcome distraction, and football only requires a couple of hours to follow. so, kudos, football.
if you're wondering why i use the word football when i'm very obviously talking about soccer, it's because if you watch as much as i do, you get used to speaking about it in the same way everyone else you know does. and since everyone else i know that talks about football is english and lives in my television... football it is.
