Gavin: Keep the faith

I wasn't christened as a child and neither was Zo. Our parents thought that it was down to us to decide which religion we wanted to follow as we got older, which was very forward thinking of them to be honest. However, although we don't believe in anything but Arsenal, we're not atheists or anything, so see that there isn't much wrong in people getting together for positive reasons, singing songs and having a nice time. It's just when Zo did go for a year (to try and get the kids into St. John's school), I had to stay at home and do tequila shots at 10am just to ensure there was some balance. She failed.

Anyway, Sonny is being prayed for all over the place. From Ireland to Italy, we're told he's quite high up the asking favours chain and today, we received a package from Canada where my Aunt lives, full of nice messages and pictures from her church.

It's a bit easy to be cynical in these times so I'd like to say a big thank-you to Rachel-Lynn, Jordan and my Aunt Margaret. At the end of the day, if you strip away how you feel about religion, the bottom line is they're thinking about Sonny thousands of miles away. Which no-on can dispute is a nice thing.

And kids, those 'God's power' stickers are rad.
