My meeting at the Chelsea Football Club

Yesterday started with a meeting near our place in Fulham at the Chelsea Football Club. There were people from the club, some from Microsoft, and a couple of other technology partners. The most interesting thing about the meeting is that everyone involved except two Americans (one was me) was that they were all avid Chelsea fans. I think it is somewhat of an unspoken rule that you don’t do business with them if you are not an avid fan, or if you aren’t, you send someone in your place that is.

I didn’t get to tour the stadium, but I’d like to. That costs £15 though. However, they have their own television studio, since they have their own cable channel. They are quite proud of this, so I got to see their studio. It isn’t as impressive as the Big Ten Network studios we saw the other week in Chicago, but this is just a football (soccer) club, not a television network.
