Nice piece on the Bay Area Gooners in Friday’s San Francisco Chronicle Sporting Green. The paper’s soccer columnist Alan Black joined us for the opening match of the season and colorfully detailed the great atmosphere at the pub.
I particularly like the sly dig at Tottenham in the third paragraph, No need for a cockerel to awaken the rest of the neighborhood. It’s loud. The hymns of the Arsenal blasting out the door.
For the record, while it’s true, I was converted into “a full-fledged fanatic in 2006, I did follow the Gunners for a few years prior as a somewhat casual observer.
You can read Alan’s column every Friday in the print edition of the Chronicle. He also writes The Beautiful Blog on SFGate, is a creator/contributor for The Header, and author of the hilarious book, Kick The Balls.
If you’ve not watched a match with us at the pub, you really should come by and experience it for yourself.
