Ramsey's Goal and the Celebrity Mortality Watch

As I know many of you know, Arsenal's own Aaron Ramsey has been linked with an odd and rather morbid trend. It appears that every time the Welshman scores, someone extremely famous dies.

Now, this is not meant to be a list of people we predict will kick the bucket in the next few days because that is rather sick and unethical. However, it might be wise to keep an eye out for such news.

For those of you who are not aware of this trend, I'll explain what has been happening. Here's a link to a Daily Mirror article that discussed the "news".

In short, all of Aaron Ramsey's goals for his Arsenal career have corresponded with the passing of extremely famous people. These aren't really celebrities exactly, however they are very famous people the world over. In spring of 2011, Ramsey scored against Manchester United. Osama Bin Laden was declared dead shortly after. A strike against Spurs the next October came a few days before Steve Jobs passed from Pancreatic Cancer. Similarly, he scored before the deaths of Whitney Houston and Colonel Gaddafi.

In short, keep your eyes out. Hopefully nobody bites the bullet and this trend finally dies.
