Replica Kit Heartbreak

My son no longer loves Leeds United

Leedsno  It's non-uniform 'wear your football kit' day at my kids' school tomorrow and my oldest boy (7) has decided that he no longer wants to wear Dublin or Clare GAA colours but an English football team shirt. He has always said he supports Leeds so I said I'd be happy to sort him out."No, Dad, I want an Arsenal shirt."
"But. But what about Leeds?"
"Arsenal."
(My voice getting high pitched and whiny) "You said you supported Leeds."
"They're alright. But I want an Arsenal shirt."
"Eddie Gray… er, Arthur Graham… Ken Bates?" 
He doesn't understand.
"Arsenal."
"Look I'm happy for you to *like* your local village team – which just happens to be Arsenal – but you need a big Northern team too."
He shakes his head. "All my friends support Arsenal. "

So this morning I trudged down the road to the Arsenal shop. Now that two of my children have become Gooners I only have one kid left – my 3 year old – to indoctrinate with my irrational, heartbreaking and futile love of Leeds United. 

I might have to resort to bribes with this one.

Kids won’t do as they’re told. My nephew in Dresden refuses to support Dynamo Dresden, but is keen on Bayern Munich and Real Madrid. “You’ve never been to Madrid and you stayed once in Munich overnight and didn’t even see a game,” I pouted at him. “Dresden are Scheisse,” he replied. You can’t argue with that.

This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
