The sky is not falling!

It is cloudy and a storm might be on the way, but it will eventually pass. It might not even be that bad of a storm…possibly a shower…or even a stiff breeze…um…

I’m still pretty heartbroken. I loved Thierry Henry. Maybe I never met him or anything…but as far as man-sporting crushes go…our relationship was pretty serious. Paddy Vieira and Tony Adams might have been my favorite players, but Thierry was legitimately brilliant at football. You support teams not because they are awesome or brilliant, but because you have to do something silly and fun with your time and there is nothing sillier and funner than supporting a club/team/sport. Anyways you don’t expect or even require getting to watch someone unique and amazing on one of your teams. It might happen, but it’s not guaranteed. (granted you have a much better chance if you pick one of the big four English football teams in 1997) You never knew what Thierry would do, but you could be pretty sure that whatever it was would be very, very entertaining. Not only that, but he’s been the best striker in the premiership, if not the world, for the last five years. He scores goals and that is an (apparently) underrated part of football.

Seeing him in Barcelona today WAS sickening. Still, you can pretend to be upset with him that you’ve been left for someone bigger, you can drink a bunch of whiskey and hook up with an easy target, or you can recognize that what you’ve had was awesome….also….that it couldn’t last forever.

I’m changing gears now before this post gets too creepy but I wish Thierry the best in Catalonia. Seriously.

Arsenal are at a crossroads, sure, but Arsene Wenger has not left yet. Cesc Fabregas is still a Gunner. Arsenal are not Sp*rs and they never will be. The sky is not falling. For now, we’ll just have to settle for that.

  1. I’m obviously glad to see him go since he’s so damn good and I couldn’t really hate him the way I hate, say, Lehmann or Van Prissy.
