|Just two points off of the top of the league|
Coming on the heels of Saturday's Manchester United draw with Aston Villa, Arsenal jumped the Mancs and moved to second place, five points behind Chelsea. Then things just got better. Sunderland traveled to Stamford Bridge for a meeting with the billionaire boys club known as Chelski. Assuming the inevitable would happen and that Chelsea would win, I dozed off during the game. When I awoke it was the 70th minute and the Black Cats had a 2-0 lead. The next 20 minutes were fun to watch as the Chelsea fans fled the stadium in a mass exodus. Ashley Cole and the rest of Chelsea looked a mess and when the final whistle blew the 3-0 Sunderland win meant that Arsenal were now just two points off of the top of the table.
While this blog is about Arsenal and the Mets, I do have to give a special mention to the New York Jets who somehow pulled out a victory from nowhere with a winning touchdown run on what was definitely the last play of overtime. The Jets are 7-2. Like Mets fans, it's not too often that supporters of the Jets get to gloat. So today, we finally get the chance.
Adding to the great results of the weekend, the Mets also didn't lose. Yes, it's a joke it's the off season. But on a positive note, the Mets are currently interviewing candidates for their manager opening and Mets fans everywhere are optomistic.
