AMERICANS WEARING SOCCER JERSEYS and other examples of MEMORABILIA IN PUBLIC
Photo subjects: Possibly the current Arsenal midfield. See previous Arsenal analysis.
Where to find them:  In bed by 9 pm, Learning multiplication tables between practices at the Arsenal training compound/daycare
Team: Arsenal youth brigade, admirable for their commitment to developing young talent instead of stocking up on established guns-for-hire (Like other top tier EPL clubs Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United)
American connection: Arsenal runs U16 and U18 clubs in the United States Soccer Development Academy, which compete against independent clubs as well as MLS youth academy teams. Someday soon, the club will scoop up young Americans — perhaps the Downey trio — and plug them immediately into the first team.
