Yikes, long sentence, sorry.
Sunderland, the team I have supported through thick and thin the last twenty years basically, won a huge game 'on the road' today against Aston Villa. They possibly kept themselves in the Premiership with the win, well, the certainly made it a possibility.
My point, the focal point of this post, is that it is really super to root for the underdog, and for that underdog to occasionally make good on that support and reward you with a big win.
It's an excellent feeling.
This footage of the priceless goal is for my Dad, who is an even bigger Sunderland supporter than me.
Howay the lads!
Clinging to life in the Premiership!
Coming soon: American? Into soccer? Coming soon, why YOU should probably be rooting for Fulham in their attempt to stay in the Premiership. (I'll give you a clue, they have loads of Yanks in their squad!)
