Arsenal game

Oh, I shouldn't do this... The idea (of course, it hasn't all been confirmed yet, but anyway...) of going to Seattle in just over a week's time has got me thinking. It might be just as easy (and just as cheap) to fly back home via London, taking a stopover there to break up the trip, see my grandparents, and perhaps drop in to Highbury to see Arsenal play Aston Villa.

I know the guy who runs the website, and of course I do a podcast about the club (although I'm off the air while Optus fix my phone), so really I should be able to get pressbox tickets, and interview a few players, etc...

I'm getting ahead of myself of course, but it's nice to dream. :)
