No Red Bulls game this weekend, so we got together to celebrate the start of the 14/15 Prem season (mates). The Viper's Nest crew took a ride into deepest Dutchess County NY, to the picturesque Village of Pawling, home to the great Matt Conroy (aka Who Shot Sam).
I was a great day out! Several games were watched, lots of beer, scotch and lots of BBQ meats were consumed. There was even a drunken kick-around that quite possibly led to an ACL/MCL/Menicus injury (get well soon Kevin) and an Ice Bucket Challenge (or two).
Anyway, a great start to the season as Man U lost and Arsenal pulled out a 2-1 victory, with late goal heroics from "Welsh Jesus" Aaron Ramsey (there we are, above, celebrating the winnah). Unfortunately some of my mates' teams weren't so fortunate, as the great You Suck Corrales' beloved QPR lost to Hull City and Kevin's beloved Stoke lost to Aston Villa. Matt Conroy's beloved Chelsea plays tomorrow, in the Monday night game, and we all wish those blues luck (yeah, ok! ;) ).
Alrighty then! Click on the video on top for the usual drunken comments. Some photos from Matt Kremkau here. If you'd care to join our Fantasy Prem League, you can do so by clicking here. It's back to MLS action next Saturday as the Red Bulls have a massive home fixture (mates) vs Montreal. I hope to see you all @The Cathedral of Football, Red Bull Arena (built by Makita). The big viper is outtahere!
