That's my team!

Apparently my great-great-grandparents from my father's side of the family are originally from that area, so I became interested in the club several years ago.

I've always been a big fan of the English Premier League, especially the bad teams. Once Burnley got promoted for the 2014-2015 season I got super into them, and it's awesome to see them not only come up again after being relegated that year but really taking it to some of the traditional powerful teams so far this season.

Winning at Chelsea on opening day plus away draws vs. Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool? Hell yeah! We were (basically) cheated from drawing Arsenal at home last weekend, but used to it by now (it's happened three games in a row with them). Otherwise, what a year!

It was also pretty cool how the UVA men's soccer team visited Turf Moor a few years ago. They ended up beating Manchester City that day as well.

Sean Dyche rules.
