"Happy memories with his dad"
There is something really beautiful about the fervor with which the English celebrate their love for football. It's vaguely comparable to the fanaticism around baseball in the States. But what I find most endearing is the obviously very strong bonds formed between English fathers and sons when they support the same team. Here we see dedication stones at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium, and I was immediately drawn to the dedications from sons to fathers. Quite poignant and, for me at least, it makes up for a lot of the horror stories you hear about football hooliganism.
