Yellow Fever

KT and I spent our Monday holiday renewing ties with our local favorite football team Cambridge United (Yel-low, Yel-low, goes the the chant). After almost being dropped into a lower league last season, United has had a blazing start to the new season winning 3 of its first 4 games and getting a tie in the 4th. Monday's game started poorly for the team, as they looked disorganized--perhaps because they were missing 2 key players. The opponents scored a goal just before the half and the fans were unhappy as the teams walked off at the break. But United came out with more intensity and as time ticked way, desperation set in. Then, GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL--after several good chances, United finally headed in the ball with just a few minutes left to tie the game. The whistle blew a few minutes later and United's undefeated season continue. They stand at the top of their league! More updates as the season progresses--jt
