Politics isn’t the only thing making headlines in the U.K. today. I don’t follow British
soccer football, but apparently this is a really big deal, sort of like the Red Sox winning the World Series: Chelsea clinched the Premiership title for the first time in 50 years, beating Bolton 2-0 to secure an unassailable lead over second-place Arsenal.
Arash wrote several weeks ago about Chelsea, saying they have a good chance to win the Europe-wide Champions League as well, something no British team has done since 1999. I don’t exactly understand these things (how can both leagues run simultaneously?), but apparently they’re in the semifinals, and the championship is on May 25.
