Tomorrow, I leave for a trip to England and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see my favorite football club, West Ham United, play live at their home ground in East London. A friend and fellow West Ham supporter who is also a pilot for a major airline set me up with free plane tickets and a free hotel room.
He's an East London native and life-long Hammers supporter, so I'll have a good guide with me. He and I are headed to Blighty tomorrow for two days of football, fun and whatever else comes our way (and also two days of travel...but I'm not complaining). To say that I'm excited about this would be the understatement of the last two centuries at the very least. I'm going to see West Ham play live. On Wednesday night. In the Boleyn Ground. I won't really believe it until I'm there, which I will be very soon.
I will return to Boston on Friday afternoon, weather and other circumstances permitting. Keep an eye out here for photos--oh, yes, there will be photos. Lots and lots of photos. In the meantime...
COME ON YOU IRONS!
