About Willie Gannon

Featured Blogger @ www.tigerbeer.com/football (Over 18s Only) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- B/R World Football Writer of the Year 2009/10. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Choose Football. Choose a team. Choose a vocation. Choose a family. Choose a stadium, choose bad catering, no leg room, whingeing glory seekers and cynical die-hards. Choose wing wizardry, midfield dynamos, and twenty a season strikers. Choose fixed interest season ticket repayments. Choose your seat. Choose your friends. Choose over-priced replica kits and matching accessories. Choose a reserve team striker on loan from a range of bigger clubs. Choose going out on the lash after the game and wondering who the hell you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing grand slam Sundays, stuffing junk food into your mouth. Choose going home and away til the end of it all, pishing your last on a miserable terrace, nothing more than an embarrassment to the cooler, sharper brats you spawned to replace yourself. Choose your future. Choose football. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hailing from the land of Saints and Scholars I come from a long tradition of people who clearly have too much time on their hands and like voicing their opinion, so if you've nothing better to do on a rainy morning take a trawl through my back catalogue. There you'll find articles ranging from football to food to comics to boxing to cattle to westerns and music and then back to football again, with a little bit of history thrown in for good measure. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I also contribute to www.premierleaguereport.blogspot.com, www.TOsports.ca, www.ComeonSpurs.com, and www.sportingpreview.com, and have been lucky enough to see a couple of articles be picked up by FOX Sports, CBSSports, the LA Times Online, and BBC 606. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- And seen as everyone else in the world is doing it, check out http://twitter.com/WillieGannon. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
