When Van Persie's penalty kick was blocked by the young Schmeichel (son of Peter Schmeichel, one of my favorite players of all time, even if he did play for ManUnited), the Asay home shook with grief. But my two-year old, Lily, knew the drill, and didn't lose hope./p>

And on the seventh day, when Arsenal won, the Asay home rested. Finally.
