Another sign I have never seen in the U.S.

This is just steps away from my apartment in Bukoto and gets updated each weekend, or whenever the football games are on. You can see at the bottom that they charge 500 shillings (that's what that /= means) to see the match.

Personally, I have decided on Chelsea as my team of choice. Manchester United and Arsenal seem to be the two huge powerhouse teams, but Chelsea is in the top 4 and likely to be in the finals. Might as well jump on the bandwagon with a team that's likely to do well--unlike FULHAM, the next-to-last in the league and therefore likely to be OUT of the Premier League at the end of the season. (I kind of like this system; the bottom three teams get dumped to a lower level, while the top three at the next level down can come up to Premier League.) FULHAM! It's like rooting for the Giants, for Pete's sake.

How about Liverpool? They have a blue collar following from the city that produced Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, and Starr. You can't beat that... unless you happen to follow the lovable Bears from Berkeley!
