Today begins the English soccer season, and not a moment too soon. The Community Shield is, of course, a friendly -- sure, it's one that's all gussied up with silver plating, but it won't mean anything in the long run, in terms of points or real trophies or anything. But it's something with some history, and it's something we qualified for by winning a real thing (the FA Cup, if you've forgotten). So I'd like to win it, if we can, but if we don't it's not all that big a deal. It's not a bad place to be in, honestly.
So let's all get together and have some fun, eh? The lineups will be posted once they're somewhere that I can see them.
