#1: Football. #2: Beer. #3: Women.

This looks like a really cool video documentary covering the 2009-2010 Manchester City season. The title to this post is a quote from a fan in the trailer. He follows this priority list with:

"....this is probably why I am single."

Check it out. Worth a few minutes of our time for sure. If you are a Man City hater, then you can unite under the fact that these guys are trying to buy their way to a championship and have failed thus far...but I would imagine that this film is worth it just from getting the chance to have some unique insight into the life of an EPL fan. Check this description out from the Umbro blog which describes the film in more detail:

Rather than a conventional story of the season told through simple match footage, Blue Moon Rising is much more of a blockbuster, following a group of City’s supporters who travel to watch the team home and away in their own converted people carrier they’ve christened Helios. We follow these guys throughout the film, and it’s their commitment (and their eccentricities) that fans of any club will recognise – teaching their children to dislike the colour red, and claiming to vote Conservative simply because of the party’s colour are some of their more outlandish ideas.

Hooray!! We won the league!! Let's make a movie!!!

What's that? We only finished 5th and didn't even make the Champions League? We still lost the league double to United and they knocked us out of the League Cup? Our streak of 34 years of being trophy-less continues? Well Sh*t...

Glory Glory

I figured you wouldn't be able to stay quiet on this one :-) But hey, if it provides interesting insight into what it is like to live in England and be a fan of a big name team in the EPL, I still think it might be cool - regardless of what color you bleed.

If you want to read about being an EPL fan, read the book Bloody Confused by Chuck Culpepper. He's an American journalist who moves to England and goes through the trials of picking a team to follow. Great book. I have it if you'd like to borrow it.

Oh, and City are not a "big name team".

I think you have some deep rooted anger issues.
