Sit down class, and pay attention. Have you ever wondered if you were meant to be born and raised somewhere else? No disrespect to our great nation (I pledge allegiance…), but we here at Among the Thugs may have been misplaced in this world.
This collection of posts will guide you through the lives of 7 American Football fans as we chronicle our passion for a sport that our country somewhat ignores. Through our sleep filled eyes (we are all West Coast based) we will attempt to share with you what football has done for us, or maybe to us.
Here we will attempt to explain ourselves. This is where we will post our hopes, our dreams, our teams, and how we got to this point. This will help shed light on where these thoughts will be coming from as you take it all in. We also hope in some way this could serve as place to share, so our family and friends stop glaring at us every time we get together and bring up football the second we make eye contact.
This will be our place holder until we all get a chance to properly introduce ourselves. To make it fair (yes we are enemies in every respect when it comes to football), most listings will be done alphabetically by supported team. For example, in our blog header the logos go – Arsenal, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Newcastle.
Sit back, grab a Guinness and enjoy.
Here is our lineup:
Louie – Arsenal
Andy – Aston Villa
Mark – Chelsea
Jason – Liverpool
Sean – Manchester United
Jacob – Newcastle
Shawn – Newcastle
