the epic comeback
This weekend we went to the Newcastle vs Arsenal game.....and if any of you watched some ESPN highlights they are calling it "The Epic Comeback." Newcastle (our home team) was losing 4 to nil only twenty minutes into the match....Newcastle fans were disgusted, some even left before the half in hopes to find better entertainment (which probably included a lot of drinking; they seem to do that in excess over here). After the fourth goal we joked that to make it a worth while game, either Arsenal needed to score a ridiculous amount of goals to make it a never before seen HUGE blowout or Newcastle needed to make an incredible comeback. We thought it would be the first, by the way Arsenal just seemed to toy with Newcastle. At half time the odds of Newcastle making a comeback was 250,000 pounds to 1...I'm not much of a gambler, but I don't think I would have bet in favor of Newcastle. The second half started off with an Arsenal player getting a red card, forcing the team to play a man down - I would sure hate to be that player right about now. After that Arsenal seemed to fall apart...two penalty kicks and two amazing goals later, the game was tied 4, 4 (Newcastle actually scored another goal, which would have made it 5, 4 in their favor, but it was called back.) When the whistle blew with a tied score the stadium roared; cheering, taunting, yelling, strangers hugging (like Thomas and the man behind us), it was unbelievable. No one had ever seen anything like it; there has never been a greater comeback in the Premier league...ever....and we were there for it all!!!!
