Petr Čech

leave a comment »

English Premier Club Chelsea FC signed the Czech international from Stade Rennais FC in 2004. Since joining the Blues, Petr Čech has won the Premier League three times and won this year’s UEFA Champions League.

Čech is known for the headgear he wears, which is a result of a head inhury incurred during a league match on October 2006. In a match against Reading FC, the goalkeeper was kneed in the head by midfielder Stephen Hunt. Čech suffered a skull fracture and underwent surgery. He returned to league play in January of 2007.

In 2004-05 and 2009-10 seasons, Čech won the Barclays Golden Glove, and in 2005, Čech was named on the PFA’s Team of the Year.

Border Crossing

New York City, as dense and crowded as it can be, is also very much divided in many ways. The various neighborhoods and neighborhoods-within-neighborhoods all have their own personality.

5th Avenue, when it meets 14th Street, marks the dividing line between East and West. The street, itself, changes from West 14th Street to East 14th Street. A few blocks further, 5th Avenue meets it terminus at Washington Square Park.

This part of 5th Avenue also falls squarely between Chelsea and Greenwich Village.

The last few blocks of 5th Avenue heading south.
