Manchester Is My Heaven

Stretford End, Old Trafford, home of Manchester United.

Since I moved to Texas, I've felt estranged from England and its culture in a way I rarely did when I lived in Los Angeles and New York. For this reason perhaps, my attachment to football, and to my home team specifically - Manchester United - has never been greater. It helps that I can watch every game on TV, even here - like yesterdays magnificent deconstruction of Chelsea, which took us within touching distance of a record 19th English championship.
