This week’s Sporcle has a visual component — it’s naming people pictured holding the Premier League trophy. There were some refreshingly familiar faces in there, and some that I wasn’t quite as happy to see. Funny thing though, I didn’t see anybody wearing a Spurs kit celebrating winning the league. Odd.
I managed 16/20, which apparently is below average for the quiz. Three of them came before my Premier League fandom, and the fourth I’m blaming on completely and totally blocking out that particular season. If I had looked closer and thought a bit deeper, I might have been able to get one of the three from before my fandom; one of the blokes looks remarkably the same as he does today. You can probably guess which season I’ve blocked from my memory.
Half of the Elite Eight for our Favorite Premier League Arsenal Player bracket drops later today, so be on the lookout for that and ready to vote! The last round had the most votes per matchup so far. Keep it up!
