Dispatches From Scallywags

If you’re like us (we hope, for your sake, that you’re not), then you know that there are fewer things in life more fun than religiously following a team — and mocking your friends when their teams of choice succumb to utter, horrible failure. It’s in this spirit that we bring you Dispatches: live (or semi-live) blogs from Scallywags during big game days, featuring one or both of Arsenal (Jamie’s team) and Chelsea (Grant’s team).

We hope to capture not just the environment inside the pub (a fairly unique feel, we think) but also to document the tumultous emotional ride (read: slow mental descent) that this site’s authors need to endure in their pursuit of victory. Plus our buddy Magpie Chris usually drops by to make funny comments and/or knock things over. Enjoy!
