We all gathered to watch parts of three matches on television this morning.
The pets were first, sticking to me like glue as we saw Liverpool defeat Stoke City, 1-0.
Next up was visiting Aston Villa defeating 10-man Arsenal, 3-1, thanks to a pair of Christian Benteke goals.
Poor Bacary Sagna appeared to hurt himself quite severely while taking a tumble (pictured).
My soccer-loving daughter, KERSTIN, was just relieved new American broadcast rights holders NBC didn't mess with the traditional airing of the match.
"Thank God they didn't count down (the time)," she said, in reference to the American way of displaying the clock.
Finally, we watched as visiting champions MANCHESTER UNITED defeated SWANSEA CITY, 4-1, thanks to a pair of goals by both Robin Van Persie and Danny Welbeck.
Watching English football on television has been our family's traditional way to spend a Saturday for years, so today felt like a comfortable return.
