Ashton for England

The Resident Yank's [that's Neal, to you] Dean Ashton fetish has reached new heights...
I have to admit it; I’m confused about how England is going about selecting forwards for this summer’s World Cup. This may have everything to do with the fact that I’m an American and I’m watching these matches from afar, but in the great tradition of de Tocqueville’s Democracy in America I’m going to run with the premise that there’s something to be learned about a topic by looking at it from an outsider’s point of view.

    Oh yeah, Ashton for England (and Arsenal)!

    Hey Neal, if Ashton can play for England and Arsenal, so does my grandma.
