Grantland: Chelsea F.C.- Can't Buy Me Love

7

Grantland is the website started by Bill Simmons that looks to combine (American) pop culture and sports coverage. Their football coverage has been fairly below average, but I enjoyed this article for expanding on this idea: "If it hadn't been Chelsea — a massively well-funded English club with global reach and an owner who owns multiple submarines — we would have talked about this as if it were the Cinderella run to end all Cinderella runs. No matter how dire their situation looked, Chelsea just kept surviving, trailing streams of exclamation points, and somehow repeatedly blowing up the clock a split second before the minute hand touched midnight."
