As usual, rhsunderground wins. Next clue was to be that Wednesday became my favorite day back in early 1991. Most people thought I liked them because they were very good in the early 90's (not even in the Premier League now). But actually, it was because they had an American playing for them waaaay before it became a more common occurance. Also, after one of my club games against an all English team in our league, one of them told me I was pretty good for a Yank. That night, several players from both teams were at my house to watch a Wednesday game, since it was actually available in my neighborhood (lived in the Netherlands). During the game, John Harkes was described by the announcer as being pretty good for a Yank. Kind of made me feel a kindred of sorts.
OK, may have been a silly avatar contest, but at least the thread was revived for a few days, and even on topic.
