Overseas Stamps are the Best
I've been meaning to show this package off for a while now, and today seems like the perfect day. Why is that? Because Premier League play starts today in England! I've become a big fan in the past five years or so, and I'm excited to catch some live games over the next couple of days (it's amazing how many games you can catch with even a halfway decent sports package here in the US these days).
Aside from that, it provides an excuse to research and learn about some of these guys. Like Brian Clough here, who was apparently a prolific goal-scorer (251 in his career!). That total's especially impressive given that he had to retire from the game at age 29 due to an ACL injury. With 21st Century medical care and techniques, he probably would have missed a season and been back out on the field for his 30s.
interesting guy to me!

In the meantime, Premier League fans enjoy the opening weekend!
