is a little over a week away.

We are leaving Houston on thankgiving flying to London and arrive around 6am Friday morning. We are doing the tourist thing on Friday. Then on Saturday we are catching Arsenal v. Wigan. We were wanting to get tickets in the Arsenal section since my Dad and Brother are pretty big Arsenal fans but with six of us going and to sit together and prices running about 200 euro a ticket we are having to sit in the Wigan section. Someone my dad does business in London is a big Wigan supporter and he got us six tickets at a pretty reasonable price. Cesc Fabregas is having to sit because he has too many yellows.

On Sunday we are going to see Fulham v. Blackburn. I am not sure what we are doing for tickets here.

Since we did not get Zeppelin tickets we fly home Monday. Then I get to watch the Iron Bowl.

I am pretty excited and have just become an EPL fan over the past year when I got FSC. I have always follwed the WC.

We are also getting a USMNT friendly against Mexico here in Houston in February.

I'd love to see a match between the US and Mexico.

Now I'm even more jealous.

That is awesome. Arsenal's new stadium looks so badass on TV.

You will love it. Closest atmosphere to an SEC game I have ever seen.

Make sure to take a lot of pics and post them.

Nashville is hosting the semi-final and final rounds of the Olympic Qualifying tourney next year. Hopeing for a US-Mexico final.

So jealous!

Arsenal is the club I support, so I'd love to visit the Emirates Stadium.
