Ok so for those that are interested, this is the blog entry concentrating fully on sport, as i know i can have a tendency to fill my regular blogs up with it!
Where to start? I guess it should be West Ham, and I'll be off to see them play this Saturday against Forest. A good result combined with a Southampton loss will put us top of the Championship, which would be absolutely fantastic! Promotion should be our focus this season, and it certainly seems to be the case. We're still lacking in quality strikers, but with the January transfer window currently open we can only hope DG & DS work some magic and bring someone in. We've been lucky too, as when we slipped up in the league, so did the teams around us, so we haven't lost any ground!
To football of the non-league variety now, and i continue to spend what time i can at the Aspect Arena watching Concord Rangers play! You may remember there was the small matter of a Canvey Island derby match on Boxing Day? Well following on from last seasons victories, Concord visited Canvey at Park Lane and again walked away with 3 points, this time thanks to goals from Harry & James Elmes. We've had a couple of slips since then, but a solid win last weekend has the team in good spirits before this weekends away game. The next home game will be the week after on Saturday 28th, if anyone fancies coming along? If you do, don't stand near me as supposedly i try to start fights/rows with the opposition bench!
Its the business end of the season in the NFL, the Jets missed out on the playoffs thanks to some poor results late in the year, and the whole team seem to be going against one another! That should stop soon! The New York Jets have been subject to a lot of rumours today, as tomorrow sees the announcement of the teams coming to London for the NFL International Series, and the rumours are that it'll be St Louis hosting the Jets! This would be a dream come true for me, having seen my favorite NBA team here a few years back i have been waiting for a chance to see the Jets! Fingers crossed they are part of the announcement tomorrow!
There is the small matter of the Superbowl in little over 2 weeks as well. The two teams taking part will be decided this Sunday in the Conference Championship games, i have my preferences but to be honest i will just enjoy watching the game on Feb 4th! Last year i was lucky enough to watch it at the IndigO2 with two friends at the Superbash event. We'll be applying for tickets when they are available, hopefully this weekend, and fingers crossed again that i get the chance to experience the Bash once more. It was superb last year and i am sure this year will be even better!
The Friday night darts league is still going well, our first game of the year happened on the 6th Jan, and we managed to pull off a 6-4 home win! I was well chuffed too as i won my doubles match 2-1 and then won my singles match 2-0! Was a great result for the lads and takes us to 3 on the season. Last week they earned a draw, but we will be looking for win number 4 tomorrow night for sure!
So that's the sporting stuff on my mind at the moment, the NBA season is underway but other than the Chicago Bulls winning like they were last season there isn't much to tell you! If you've managed to wade through this much waffle on the sports i love, then thank you!
