Way to go Owls!

Ever since my family and I lived in Sheffield, England during my last sabbatical (2008-09 academic year), I have followed the ups and downs of Sheffield's two football clubs, Sheffield Wednesday (the Owls) and Sheffield United (the Blades).  After the Owls defeated the Wycombe Wanderers 2-0 yesterday, they secured the #2 spot in the Football League One table.  The Owls join top club Charlton Athletic for automatic promotion to Football League Championship for next season.

The Blades finished in the #3 spot in the table, just three points behind the Owls, after yesterday's draw against Exeter City, a club that will be relegated to Football League Two for next season.  The Blades now join Huddersfield Town, Milton Keynes Dons, and Stevenage for the League One play-offs.  Two matches with Stevenage (11 May and 15 May) await Sheffield United.

Congratulations to the Owls!  Go Blades!
