I call it Super Sunday when both my teams play on the same day. Doesn’t happen too often. First, Chelsea kick-off at 1.30pm UK time in a passionate London derby at home to arch rivals Arsenal in the English Premier League. Later on the Raiders go into action against the New York Jets at 9.05pm. Perfect. That should leave a few hours to check in to NFL Network Red Zone Live and also catch one of the early NFL games. Brady vs. Brees looks tasty. Good thing it was my wife’s turn to cook supper.
Here’s a little look at how my Super Sunday went:
Super Sunday 3.30pm. The aperitif. After an exciting, end-to-end match, Chelsea finish with 10 men but hold on for the 0-0 draw. The sort of scoreline that makes US sports fans scratch their heads and wonder how 0-0 can be a thriller. I’ll take it…we’re still third in the league.
