Fulham Survives; Americans Breathe Easier

A dramatic afternoon took place earlier in the day over in England. Fulham needed a victory to avoid being relegated (i.e. sent down to the minors). Fulham miracously had a 1-0 victory to just squeak out survival in the Premier League for the 2nd straight season. For those unaware, last season, Fulham needed a goal by American Clint Dempsey to secure a 1-0 victory and avoid relegation.

There is a simple reason that every American should care about Fulham avoiding relegation yet again: Fulham has a preposterous amount of Americans on its team, including: Carlos Bocanegra, Clint Dempsey, 24-year old Eddie Johnson, Brian McBride, and the fossil remains of Kasey Keller.

Now, I wil continue to have a team to root for next season in the Premier League on Fox Soccer Channel.
U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
