24 Hours

It’s only 24 hours until I start my 23 hour journey to Kansas, three trains, two planes and finally one car (that car being Erin’s car), that’s if she doesn’t crash while thinking about me on the way to the airport. I’m definitely excited but strangely calm considering I am 48 hours away from meeting what could be my future wife. It has been a long road to get here, there has been fantastic times, good times, bad times and disastrous times and now it’s time to make this relationship physical! Whatever happens between myself and Erin I am determined to have a good time while stateside. But I have faith that we’ll feel exactly the same way when we meet! Oh… and I have moved back into my dad’s place temporarily for one night before leaving for the US, see previous entries for more information on how this situation came about in the first place!

Time for a compacted update on my sporting interests. Starting with Formula 1, Lewis Hamilton won the Chinese Grand Prix ahead of Felipe Massa to extend his lead over the Brazilian to seven points with one race remaining. Basically the mathematics are simple, Hamilton needs to finish 5th or higher to become world champion. Moving onto football, Liverpool left it late in the game to claim all three points against Wigan at Anfield. The home team found themselves 1 – 2 down at half time courtesy of a Zaki double strike. Liverpool played better in the second half but had to wait until 10 minutes before time equalising and a further five minutes before Dirk Kuyt’s spectacular scissor kick made it 3 – 2 sealing the points for the Reds. With Chelsea also winning, the status quo remains at the top of the table with Chelsea extending their goal difference over Liverpool. Plymouth Argyle didn’t fair so well away at Derby County being beaten 2 – 1 despite initially taking the lead early in the first half. Argyle have dropped from 5th to 13th in the league which shows how competitive the Championship is, a single win or loss could mean the difference between a play-off place and being in the bottom half of the table.
